“Record Loss for medi Bayreuth in the BBL”


Due to a record bankruptcy, the basketball Bundesliga club medi Bayreuth has had to accept what may have been a decisive setback in the fight to stay up in the league.

In their third defeat in a row with 42:86 (18:42) at the title contender Telekom Baskets Bonn, the bottom team recorded the weakest point haul of a team in the current season. Bonn, on the other hand, drew level with leader Alba Berlin with its 13th success in a row.

Behind the leading duo and the cup winners Bayern Munich, who have also already qualified for the play-off round, fourth-placed EWE Baskets Oldenburg underlined their claim for fourth place. After four defeats, the North Germans improved their chances of home advantage in the quarter-finals with their 91:89 (47:50) at the Niners Chemnitz.

The sign of life came at the right time for Oldenburg. Because the BG Göttingen kept pace with Oldenburg by beating the MHP giants Ludwigsburg 87:80 (40:33).

Würzburg Baskets gambled away a better starting position

The Würzburg Baskets gambled away a better starting position for the final sprint for the eighth and final play-off spot. At 84:85 (36:49) at the Hakro Merlins Crailsheim, the Mainfranken had to acknowledge their third bankruptcy in a row despite a lead up to the final minute.

Bayreuth’s sporting oath of disclosure was illustrated by just six points in the last quarter. Before the debacle of Upper Franconia, which was still winless away from home, the previous season’s minus value was 47 points, which Würzburg had not managed to get past in Berlin.

Thanks to the undisputed success, Bonn remained without a home defeat even after 14 home games and ranked level with Berlin at the top of the table for at least one night. However, the defending champion can pull away again on Sunday with a win at the Veolia Towers Hamburg.
