After the clear defeat in tubingen, the baunach young pikes are eager to make amends in front of their fans in the graf-stauffenberg-halle. Guest in the 2. Basketball league proa are on saturday at 7 pm the uni baskets paderborn, a team that you can safely call the fear opponent of the "young pike" can call.
Of eight matches against the team from north rhine-westphalia so far, the upper franconians have only been able to decide one game in their favor. At the end of february 2015, they left in the "blue" as winners from the parquet, but then lost the following six encounters. A constant for the guests is trainer and sports director uli naechster, who has been on the sidelines in all duels against paderborn so far. However, the uni baskets have not been able to maintain this consistency on the pitch in the current season. Almost the entire squad was newly assembled, so that the successful performance so far is a little surprising.
No chance in hamburg
Just like the baunach team, the guests have a balanced points account, and like the team of trainer felix czerny, the uni baskets also had to take a severe defeat last weekend after three wins in a row. After a balanced first quarter, they had no chance against the hamburg towers and lost 68:95. One reason for the clear defeat was certainly an unusually weak three-point quota (26 percent) for the guests. In their victories so far, the paderborn team has always been able to rely on their good guards grant benzinger and connor wood. Both have already converted 32 threes at a rate of 40 percent in the six matches so far and are the most dangerous point scorers alongside power forward matt klinewski and setter demetrius ward.
Of course, the young pikes are aware of the danger posed by the paderborn team and will therefore be highly concentrated. The game in tubingen was probably a wake-up call at the right time. The youngest team of the league has after the short high flight with three victories in a row clearly got to trace that without the necessary passion in the balanced proa no game is to be won. The absence of william mcdowell-white and leon kratzer should not be used as an excuse either.
Nicolas wolf back in training
The trainer team czerny/dugandzic put their finger in the wound and worked on these points during the week in training sessions. Nicolas wolf is back in training, but is not expected to be deployed for another two or three weeks. With the support of their loyal fans, the baunach team is aiming for its fifth home win in a row to stay in the safe midfield of the league.
