Robert Battle claims Argentinian LigaA weekly honour - by Eurobasket News

Experienced American Robert Battle (204-C-81, agency: Dream Team Management) had a great game in the last round for Lanus and that's him to receive a Latinbasket.com Player of the Week award for round 9.
The 31-year old center had the game-high 26 points adding nine rebounds and four assists for Lanus in his team's victory, helping them to crush GECR Indalo (#7, 3-6) with 18-point margin 75-57. Lanus maintains the 3rd position in Argentinian LigaA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Lanus will need more victories to improve their 5-3 record. Battle turned to be Lanus' top player in his first season with the team. Robert Battle averages this season 12.9ppg and 6.9rpg.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was young international point guard Facundo Campazzo (179-PG-91) of league's best team Penarol. Campazzo impressed basketball fans with 22 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists. Of course Penarol cruised to a 76-65 relatively comfortable win over the lower-ranked GECR Indalo (#7, 3-6). Of course Penarol still keep Round 13's top spot. His team has currently 7-2 record. Campazzo is one of the most experienced players at Penarol and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was American Edward Nelson (203-F-82, agency: Dream Team Management) of 9 de Julio (#8). Nelson scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Despite Nelson's great performance 9 de Julio lost 69-72 to the higher-ranked Argentino (#2, 6-3). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. 9 de Julio can only dream about fighting for top spots in South. They have rather bad season and 1-7 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Nelson he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Nelson has individually a great season in Argentina. After only 7 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 19.0ppg (4th best) and rebounds with 8.3rpg (7th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Sam Clancy (202-C-80) of Olimpico LB - 18 points and 12 rebounds
5. Cristian Amicucci (202-F/C-85) of Argentino - 16 points and 10 rebounds
6. Damian Tintorelli (204-C-81) of Quimsa - 20 points and 6 rebounds
7. Adrian Moss (203-F-81) of Union Progr. - 18 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
8. Luis Cequeira (180-PG-85) of Sionista - 14 points, 2 rebounds and 10 assists
9. Javier Martinez (189-G/F-78) of Regatas C. - 15 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists
10. Kavon Lytch (199-F-87) of Argentino - 21 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists

The Player of the week is choosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3*(REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4*(2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3*(2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3*(3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)

Eighth-ranked 9 de Julio (1-7) made lots of trouble for second ranked Argentino (6-3) in Rio Tercero. The visitors from Junin managed to secure only three-point victory 72-69. However their fans expected much easier game. It looked good early as 9 de Julio took an 2-point lead at the end of first quarter.

Lisch to play 100th game against Crocs - by Hugh McAuliffe

Perth Wildcats star and reigning NBL MVP Kevin Lisch (188-G-86, agency: Warren Sports International, college: St.Louis) will play his 100th NBL match against the Crocs in Townsville on Sunday.

The milestone is a rare achievement in the NBL, and Lisch will be the first import in 15 years to play 100 consecutive games for the same club.

The last restricted player to do so was dynamic North Melbourne Giant Daryl McDonald who strung together 130 games after debuting in 1994. Previous to McDonald, Tigers legend Lanard Copeland played an amazing 196 straight matches before his first miss 6 years after debuting in 1992.

After debuting in September 2009, Kevin Lisch's 99 games have been filled with highlights. In just his second game he hit a contested three on the buzzer to give the Wildcats their first win, in what would be a championship year for the club.

After a brilliant season last year, Lisch was named the MVP of the NBL for the 2011/12 Season, making him the first Wildcat to achieve that honour since Paul Rogers in 2000.

In his 99 games for the Perth Wildcats, Lisch has averaged 14.4ppg, 3.2rpg and 2.7apg.

On Sunday he will become the fourth current NBL player to play over 100 consecutive games behind Adelaides Stephen Weigh, Breaker Mika Vukona and Crocodile Peter Crawford.



Wildcats win for Lisch and Bevo - by Hugh McAuliffe

The Perth Wildcats made their second emphatic statement in two weeks with an 82-58 thrashing of the Townsville Crocodiles on Sunday in Kevin Lisch (188-G-86, agency: Warren Sports International, college: St.Louis) and Rob Beveridge's 100th game.

MVP Kevin Lisch (20 points) started the party and his Wildcats teammates joined in, nailing 8-of-11 from the three-point line in the second half.

With their outside game on song Perth turned a four-point half-time deficit into a 17-point advantage at the last break, and their intense ball pressure then held the home team to a paltry eight-point final quarter.

Lisch received best support from big men Shawn Redhage (18 points), Jesse Wagstaff (11 points, 9 rebounds) and Matt Knight (10 points, 7 rebounds).

For Townsville, only Michael Cedar (11 points) reached double figures as they shot 29 per cent and were out-rebounded 42-30.

The Crocs' first half did nothing to suggest they would fall away so badly after the main break.

Their denial defence stalled the Wildcats' trademark ball movement and forced 13 first-half turnovers to put the visitors on the back foot.

At the other end Cedar, Todd Blanchfield and new import Gary Ervin provided plenty of spark as they penetrated Perth's usually stringent defence.

But the tables were turned in the second half as Wildcats coach Rob Beveridge implemented an aggressive 2-3 zone which forced the Crocs to the perimeter.

The Townsville offence stalled as they repeatedly miscued, but at the other end Lisch and Redhage had no such troubles as they fired their team to an easy victory.

Perth Wildcats 82 (Lisch 20, Redhage 18, Wagstaff 11)

Townsville Crocodiles 58 (M Cedar 11)

Crowd: 3782 at Townsville Entertainment Centre

Mirza Teletovic struggles in NBA debut! - by Chris Mathieu


Mirza Teletovic (206-F-85, agency: Beo Basket) struggled in his NBA debut for the Brooklyn Nets! In the much anticipated debut of both the Brooklyn Nets and Bosnian star Mirza Teletovic, Mirza struggled while on the court for the team. Mirza played 25 minutes but shot poorly going 2-13 from the field (2 of 11 from 3s) scored 6 points with 3 rebounds. The NBA style and Mirzas style of play made it likely this would be a season of adjustment for the Bosnian great. Brooklyn still pulled out a win 108 to 105 over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Chang Chia-jung led Dacin with 15 points while Lin Yi-hui had 14 and Tien Lei and Wang Chih-chun had 13 apiece.

James Wang, an overseas Taiwanese player who is being tested, led PY with 20 points.

Local fans found the Straits Cup this year intriguing as four popular Taiwanese players represent different teams in the tourney -- Tseng Wen-ting plays for Shanghai and Lin Chih-chieh plays for Zhejiang while Chen Hsin-an leads Pure Youth and Tien Lei represents Dacin.

Lin Chih-chieh, who did not play in the first game due to toothache, only had 2 points and 2 assists in 11 minutes. Lin admitted that his physical condition was way behind his Zhejiang teammates after taking a period of rest following the FIBA Asia Cup in Tokyo and he had to catch up for the upcoming new season in China.

On Friday, Shanghai, now coached by Daniel Panaggio, beat Dacin 76-69. Zhang Zhaoxu paced the Sharks, which had five players scoring in double-figures, with 12 points and 10 boards. Tseng Wen-ting had an off night with 6 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists.

Yue Ying-li led Dacin with 22 and Chen Tse-wei had 18.

Led by center Wang Zhengs 18 and 12, Zhejiang routed Pure Youth 84-70 in the opening game. Tsai Wen-cheng had a team-high 17 points, 5 assists and 4 steals for PY.

NBL Round 4: CEZ Nymburk and BK Pardubice keep the perfect record - by Eurobasket News

It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in NBL, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders.

They outrebounded NH Ostrava 46-32 including 34 on the defensive glass. 26 personal fouls committed by NH Ostrava helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American guard Michael Taylor (188-86, college: Iowa St., agency: Priority Sports) fired 32 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. The former international center Petr Benda (203-82, agency: Court Side) chipped in 12 points and 7 rebounds. CEZ Nymburk's coach used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 25-year old American point guard Showron Glover (180-PG-87) of Chomutov. Glover impressed basketball fans with 34 points and 7 rebounds. Bad luck as Chomutov was edged by league's leader BK Decin (#5, 2-0) 98-97. Chomutov is still second from the bottom in the standings. 3 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory Chomutov managed to get this year.

He was a key player of CEZ Nymburk, leading his team to a 76-62 easy win against #3 ranked NH Ostrava in a game of the week. CEZ Nymburk started extremely well this year. They recorded 4 victories without losing a single game. Taylor turns to be one of the very best players in the league while he is also a leader of the top team having his eyes on the championship title. Taylor has a great season in Czech Republic. After only 3 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 18.7ppg (4th best).

The Player of the week is choosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)

Emir Preldzic claims Euroleague weekly honour - by Eurobasket News

Slovenian-Turkish Emir Preldzic (205-SF-87, agency: Beo Basket) had an amazing evening in the last round for Fener.Ulker and that's him to receive a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 1.
The 25-year old had the game-high 20 points adding four rebounds and three assists for Fener.Ulker in his team's victory, helping them to beat Khimky (0-1) 92-80. It's just the very beginning of the season and Fener.Ulker won just one (their first) game. It's too early to say anything as the standings can be changed completely after next round. Preldzic has many years of experience at Fener.Ulker, through which he has constantly improved.

The second most remarkable performance in last round's games was 30-year old Croatian guard Zoran Planinic (198-G-82) of Khimky. Planinic impressed basketball fans with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. Bad luck as Khimky lost that game 80-92 to Fener.Ulker (1-0). The season is still at the very beginning and this lost game may not be such crucial, of course if they start win the games. Let's wait for the next round. Planinic is one of the most experienced players at Khimky and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.

The third best performed player last round was Ksistof Lavrinovic (210-C-79) of Zalgiris. Lavrinovic scored 17 points and grabbed five rebounds. He was a key player of Zalgiris, leading his team to a 90-62 easy win against Cedevita (0-1). Zalgiris has a very good start of the season. But there was just one game played, so it's too early to judge them at this stage. Lavrinovic also has a very good start of the season with very strong stats. The season just started for Lavrinovic as he played only first game. But it already looks like he can be team's leader.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Earl Calloway (191-G-83) of Unicaja - 25 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists
5. Ioannis Bourousis (213-C-83) of EA7 Armani - 23 points and 7 rebounds
6. Ante Tomic (217-C-87) of FCB Regal - 12 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
7. Vladimir Lucic (202-SF-89) of Partizan - 18 points and 4 rebounds
8. Rudy Fernandez (198-SF-85) of Real Madrid - 23 points and 4 rebounds
9. Steed Tchicamboud (193-G-81) of Chalon - 16 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists
10. Nenad Krstic (212-C-83) of CSKA - 12 points and 7 rebounds

The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)

Great Win Namika!!! - by Greg Logins

Whats up Fans? Hope all is great.Last night in the Korisliiga league, there where some great games. We faced Korahait on the road. It was a great one, although we faced a zone for most of the game. We started off with a great lead in the first half, with them playing man to man defense and then they sat into a zone for the remainder of the ball game. With them sitting in the zone, we where still doing pretty good and getting excellent looks at the basket. With a couple of defensive collapses, we allowed them to get back into the game, but we picked it up and got a good victory on the road which cruises us to a record of 2-1. I had a solid game, a double double. Now with the day off, we will rest our bodies and get back to work tomorrow to prepare for our game home wednesday against Lapua and Friday away against KTP. We will be prepared to fight and finish off with wins... That is all I have for today fans, hope you all have a blessed day.

KORISLIIGA: Kataja stronger than Karhu - by Rauno Hurmalainen

Korisliiga, round 3: When Kataja (Joensuu) defeated tonight at home visitor Karhu (Kauhajoki), that means there is only one undefeated team in Top League after three rounds: That team is Pyrinto (Tampere). Kataja had no difficulties vs Karhu. The game was practically over in 20 minutes: 89-66 (45-23). Karhu's big man Tremaine Ford (206-F/C-86, college: CS Northridge) got three fouls already in nine minutes. Ford played 22:26 minutes in the game and was fouled out. Karhu had only two players in double figures. Kataja had five players in double digits. Jonte Flowers (196-F/G-85, agency: Warren Sports International, college: Winona St.) (Kataja) scored game high 17 points and led Kataja even in rebounds (7).
Kataja - Karhu 89-66 (45-23). (Jonte Flowers 17/7, Antti Kanervo 16, Juho Nenonen 14 - J'Nathan Bullock 16, Giordan Watson 12, Tremaine Ford 8/8. A: 742).



Korisliiga Round 3: Undefeated Kauhajoen Karhu loses their first game against Joensuun Kataja - by Eurobasket News

Korisliiga Regular Season is still in too early stage and there may be still significant changes in the standings.

The most surprising game was the first loss of undefeated Kauhajoen Karhu (2-1) on the court of eighth ranked Joensuun Kataja on Saturday night. Visitors were rolled over by Joensuun Kataja 89-66. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Kauhajoen Karhu. The game was mostly controlled by Joensuun Kataja. Kauhajoen Karhu managed to win third quarter 19-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Joensuun Kataja made 23-of-27 free shots (85.2 percent) during the game. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for swingman Jonte Flowers (196-85, college: Winona St., agency: Warren Sports International) who led his team to a victory scoring 17 points and 7 rebounds. point guard Johnell Smith (180-80, college: New Orleans) helped adding 10 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. The best for the losing side was forward J'Nathan Bullock (196-87, college: Cleveland St., agency: Pro One Sports) with 16 points and 6 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Joensuun Kataja moved-up to second place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Kauhajoen Karhu. Joensuun Kataja is looking forward to face Kouvot (#7) in Kouvola in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Kauhajoen Karhu will play at home against UU-Korihait (#9) in Uusikaupunki and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Uusikaupunki. Sixth ranked LrNMKY (2-1) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging 9th ranked UU-Korihait (1-2) 64-61 on Friday evening. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Matthew Gibson (196-84) who led the winners and scored 17 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Greg Logins accounted for 14 points and 10 rebounds. LrNMKY's coach Lassi Tuovi allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. point guard Mikko Jalonen (186-82) came up with 24 points and 6 rebounds for UU-Korihait in the defeat. LrNMKY moved-up to second place, which they share with 4 other teams. UU-Korihait at the other side keeps the ninth position with two games lost. They share it with Salon Vilpas. LrNMKY will play against Lapuan Korikobrat (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. UU-Korihait will play against Kauhajoen Karhu in Kauhajoki to get more than just one victory in their record.
Bottom-ranked Namika Lahti (0-3) was outscored at home by leader Tampereen Pyrinto (3-0) with the biggest margin this round 116-76 on Friday night. The best player for the winners was Damon Williams who had a double-double by scoring 14 points, 5 rebounds and 10 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Emmanuel Holloway who recorded 26 points. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Tampereen Pyrinto have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Loser Namika Lahti still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with Lapua. Tampereen Pyrinto will meet at home Loimaan Korikonkarit (#8) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Namika Lahti will play against Salon Vilpas (#10) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 3: Salon Vilpas lost to KTP on the opponent's court 89-96. Winless Lapua unfortunately lost to FoKoPo in a home game 81-92. Kataja was rolled over Nilan Bisons on the road 75-98.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 26 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 blocks by Sefton Barrett of KTP.

Finnish Korisliiga round 3 best performance: Sefton Barrett - by Eurobasket News

Canadian Sefton Barrett (196-SF-83, agency: Limelight Hoops) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for KTP, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 3.
The 29-year old player had a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds, while his team beat Salon Vilpas (#10, 1-2) 96-89. KTP maintains the 4th position in Finnish Korisliiga. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this season. KTP will need more victories to improve their 2-1 record. In the team's last game Barrett had a remarkable 80.0% from 2-point range. He turned to be KTP's top player in his first season with the team. Former Central Michigan University star has very solid stats this year. Barrett is in league's top in points (6th best: 20.0ppg) and averages impressive 2.0bpg,61.5% FGP and 45.5% from behind 3-point line.

The second best player in last round's games was 23-year old Sami Ikavalko (188-G-89) of FoKoPo. Ikavalko had a very good evening with 27 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists. Of course FoKoPo cruised to a 92-81 relatively comfortable win over Lapua (0-3). The season is still at the very beginning and this victory may help a lot. Let's wait for the next round. Ikavalko is one of the most experienced players at FoKoPo and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 24.0ppg (#2). His other stats are also decent: 5.0rpg and 4.7apg.

Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Ryan McDade (201-F-80) of Nilan Bisons (#8). McDade scored 14 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of Nilan Bisons, leading his team to a 98-75 easy win against Kataja (#2, 2-1). Nilan Bisons needs these victories very badly if they think about getting closer to top teams. Their record at this point is 1 victories and 1 lost games. McDade has a great season in Finland. After only 2 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in rebounds with 17.0rpg (#1 in league).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Cedric Latimer (198-F-87) of Namika Lahti - 17 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is choosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.

The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3*(REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4*(2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3*(2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3*(3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)

Jacob Burtschi (Eisbaeren Bremerhaven) Containing Ryan Brooks Was High On Our To Do List In Giessen - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber


Jacob Burtschi (198-F-84, college: Air Force) is a 28 year old 198cm forward from Chickasha, Oklahoma who is playing his first season with the Bremerhaven Eisbaeren. He played as a rookie for Phoenix Hagen in 2010-2011 averaging 14.2ppg, 6.9rpg, 2.5apg, Steals-3 (1.5spg), FGP: 56.0%, 3PT: 44.2%, FT: 82.2%. He played at the Air Force from 2003-2007. In his senior year, he played 35 games averaging 13.5ppg, 6.0rpg, 2.3apg, 1.6spg, FGP: 49.7%, 3Pts: 39.0%, FT: 77.3%. He had offers to play in the NBA, but served in the Air Force the last three years and could only play club ball. Some achievements that he got in the NCAA were All-MWC Honorable Mention -05, MWC Regular Season Runner-Up -06, All-MWC 2nd Team -06, 07, NABC All-NCAA District 13 2nd Team -07, and NIT Final Four -07. Last season he played for CAI Zaragoza (Spain-ACB, starting five): 9 games: 2.6ppg, 2.4rpg; left in Nov.'11, in Dec.'11 moved to Fraport Skyliners Frankfurt (Germany-BBL): German League: 22 games: 8.2ppg, 4.5rpg, 1.4apg, 1.0spg, FGP: 50.0%, 3PT: 36.3%, FT: 87.5%; EuroCup: 2 games: 5.5ppg, 3.0rpg, 2.0apg, 1.0spg. He spoke to Eurobasket after the soothing 114-80 win in Giessen.

Congrats on the 114-80 win in Giessen. How tough has the three game losing streak been?

It was tough to sleep at night. We finally played some good basketball against Giessen. We played a lot better tonight, but there are still things that we need to work on on defense.

It was very hard to believe that the Eisbaeren Bremerhaven were 0-3 before the win in Giessen. What was different tonight?

It had a lot to do with the way we started this game. We lost the first three games because we were unable to come out with energy. We came out with energy in Giessen instead of waiting five minutes to get started like we did in the first three games.

The Eisbaeren Bremerhaven were shooting 71% from the field and from outside at halftime. After 40 minutes it was 72% from the field and 59% from outside. Was that shooting practice tonight?

I would have to say yes. However many guys hit tough shots, but we finally also started knocking down open shots which we didnt do in the past.


Scott Morrison controlled the first quarter inside. Would you agree that he is a type of player that you can throw the ball anywhere near the rim and he will be able to capitalize on making points?

Yes he can. It is funny,that he broke his nose, because he has a good nose for the ball. He has very good hands and we know that we can make difficult passes and we know that he will come up with it.

What was key in the second quarter for opening up the game and getting a big lead?

We kept pushing the ball and bringing pressure. We also did a good job containing the top scorer of the Beko BBL Ryan Brooks which was high on our to do list in Giessen.


Small Giessen point guard Dijuan Harris gave Bremerhaven problems all night long ending as game top scorer with 23 points. He seems like a pest. Who does he remind you of?

It is hard to say who he reminds me of, but not a pest. He is more like a jack Russell terror. He is a guy with much energy and never quits. I give my hat off to him for a great game.

You made two nice steals in one quarter and on one coming between a pass and going coast to coast for a dunk. How much did that play remind you of a Tez steal?

Yes that was like Tez. I wish he had been here to see that. If Frankfurt would have been on the court, I would have pointed my finger at him and said that is how it is done.


Stanley Burrell played a solid game, but there were two plays where he showed his one on one talent making two difficult contested fade away jumpers from the corner. I am sure that head coach Doug Spradley doesnt like to see too much of that from his point guard?

Coach doesnt like to see too much of that, but Stan can make those plays. Coach lets him take advantage of that, because there are times when he can do that.

When observing Stan ley Burrell, you can see that he likes to talk with his eyes. Is that a way how he motivates the team?

Yes he can motivate like that. Stan is a very outgoing, outspoken guy. He is able to get us going, but that is his job as a point guard. Sometimes he doesnt need to talk, but just look at him and see the fire in his eyes.

Have you ever had two steals in one quarter where you went coast to coast in the Beko BBL?

I think I did it with Phoenix Hagen.

You said prior to the Giessen game that Bremerhaven still needed to tweak things on defense. Was that done despite giving up 80 points?

We did a good job communicating, rotating and boxing out. We did let up 80 points and still have a lot to tweak on defense.

Do you remember winning games with Hagen or Frankfurt with 7 guys scoring in double figures?

No I dont. Every one shot well. We almost had nine guys in double figures with Anthony Canty who was close.

Will Jermaine Raffington by beer for the players since he made the 100th point?

He will have to and we wont let him forget it.

What advice can you give Fraport Skyliner captain Marius Nolte for playing against Eisbaeren center Scott Robinson?

All I can say for Marius is Alter. That is locker room talk and he knows what I mean.

What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

The Rock with Sean Connery.

Thanks Jacob for the chat.




Jacob Burtschi (Eisbaeren Bremerhaven) We Need To Tweak A Few Things On Defense, Then Get Back On Track - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber

Jacob Burtschi (198-F-84, college: Air Force) is a 28 year old 198cm forward from Chickasha, Oklahoma who is playing his first season with the Bremerhaven Eisbaeren. He played as a rookie for Phoenix Hagen in 2010-2011 averaging 14.2ppg, 6.9rpg, 2.5apg, Steals-3 (1.5spg), FGP: 56.0%, 3PT: 44.2%, FT: 82.2%. He played at the Air Force from 2003-2007.

He spoke to Eurobasket before the game against the LTi Giessen 46ers October 13th.

A tough 88-82 ratiopharm Ulm win in Bremerhaven. Bremerhaven was close again but let up 29 points in the fourth quarter. What wa skey for not being able to buckle down on defense in the fourth quarter?

We gave up too many uncontested shots.

After two less than sub par games by ex NBA player Allan Ray, he lit up Bremerhaven for 31 points. What impressed you most about his game?

The guy hit clutch shots the whole night. He played with a chip on his shoulder.


You are the glue guy for the Eisbaeren Bremerhaven and had a great game with 14 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals. Did Scott Morrison buy you dinner for being so helpful on the boards?

No, but he should. A dner Teller should suffice

After three games in the Beko BBL this season the Eisbaeren are averaging giving up 82 points per game. What still needs to be worked on most on the defensive end?

A lot. Our communication on defense, help rotation, and on ball defense. Teams are shooting well against us. We need to tweak a few things on defense, then get back on track.

The next game is against the LTi Giessen 46ers. They have started 1-2. They have made a lot of changes this season. What is your impression of them this season?

I havent had a chance to see video of them but, I hear they are more of an up and down tempo now, kind of like Hagen is.


Both teams are desperate for a win on Saturday. Giessen is always tough at home. What kind of game can we expect and what will be key for getting the win?

An all out brawl. Both of us need the win. Especially us.

If You had a foot race with Quantez Robertson from one baseline to the next and you started from the free throw line, would you still be able to beat him? lol

Easily. Tez wishes he had jets like me. He learned that last year.


What was the last DVD movie that you saw?

The other guys
"CHRISTINITH! YOU IDIOT! YOU GET MY WIFE'S NAME RIGHT!"

Stjarnan - Keflavik 101-83

Rather expected game when Keflavik (0-2) lost on the road to Stjarnan (2-0) 101-83 on Thursday. The game without a history. Stjarnan led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 28-of-35 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. Stjarnan had a 35-19 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Naturalized American guard Justin Shouse (180-81, college: Mercyhurst) notched 27 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) to lead the effort and swingman Marvin Valdimarsson (198-81) supported him with 31 points and 8 rebounds. Even 14 points and 7 rebounds by American guard Kevin Giltner (198-89, college: Wofford) did not help to save the game for Keflavik. The former international guard Darrel Lewis (192-76, college: Lincoln, MO, agency: Two Points) added 12 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the guests. Five Keflavik players scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Stjarnan will meet Snaefell in the next round where they are favorite. Keflavik will play against KR in Reykjavik.

Stjarnan: M.Valdimarsson 31+8reb+1ast, J.Shouse 27+9reb+8ast, F.Helgason 10+8reb, J.Zdravevski 9+2reb+5ast, D.Jonsson 8+3reb+3ast, B.Mills 7+9reb+3ast

Grindavik - Snaefell 110-102

Grindavik used a home court advantage and won against the opponent from Stykkisholmur 110-102 on Thursday night. Snaefell trailed by 17 points after 3 quarters before a 33-24 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 102-110 at the end of the game. Grindavik looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. American point guard Sammy Zeglinski (182-88, college: Virginia) notched 37 points (!!!), 5 rebounds and 8 assists (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) to lead the effort and the other American import forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle, agency: JEMsports) supported him with 28 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Grindavik's coach Sverrir Sverrisson used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 26 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists by point guard Hafthor Gunnarsson (183-81) did not help to save the game for Snaefell. Forward Jon Olafur Jonsson (199-81) added 20 points and 11 rebounds for the guests. Four Grindavik and five Snaefell players scored in double figures. Grindavik will meet Thor Thorl in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Snaefell will play against Stjarnan and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

NKL Round 3: Delikatesas lose the game and top position - by Eurobasket News

NKL Regular Season is still in too early stage and there may be still significant changes in the standings.

There was a change at the NKL leadership position after last games. The most important game of round 3 took place in Mazeikiai between two undefeated teams where Mazeikiai crushed Delikatesas (2-1) 81-61 on Friday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Delikatesas. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game was mostly controlled by Mazeikiai. Delikatesas managed to win second period 21-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Delikatesas 41-21 including a 23-12 advantage in defensive rebounds. 24 personal fouls committed by Delikatesas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a great evening for forward Osvaldas Macernis (196-82) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Guard Andrius Mikutis (193-88, college: John Brown) helped adding 12 points and 13 rebounds. Mazeikiai's coach Aloyzas Rudys used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was guard Paulius Klemas (186-91) with 12 points, 8 assists and 6 steals. Mazeikiai have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader. Delikatesas at the other side dropped to the second place with one game lost. They share the position with 8 other teams. They were replaced at the leadership position by Mazeikiai. Delikatesas will play next round against Triobet trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Mazeikiai will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked Birstono on the road.
Undefeated S.Marciulionio (2-1) recorded its first loss in Pakruojis. Visitors were defeated by tenth ranked Meresta (2-1) 81-77. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of S.Marciulionio. It was an exceptional evening for guard Tomas Gaidamavicius (191-82) who led the winners and scored 24 points and 9 assists. Ignas Vaitkus accounted for 20 points. Forward Arvydas Gydra (206-89) came up with 23 points for S.Marciulionio in the defeat. Meresta moved-up to second place, which they share with 8 other teams including defeated S.Marciulionio. Meresta will play against bottom-ranked Radviliskis (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. S.Marciulionio's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Vilnius Perlas-MRU.
Quite upsetting was Triobet's home defeat in a game versus Suduva-Mantinga 64-60. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The best player for the winners was Aurimas Birgelis who scored 15 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Tomas Milinskas who recorded a double-double by scoring 14 points and 15 rebounds. Triobet's coach Kestutis Narusevicius tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help.
