Bayern visits Braunschweig
And it goes on again: On their 19th BBL gameday, the Bayern Basketball team plays host to the Lions in Braunschweig this Sunday afternoon. As always, a motivated home team awaits the league leader led by head coach Andrea Trinchieri. The Lower Saxon suqad solved the obligatory task against relegation candidate Würzburg (80-75) during the week and have thus already created sufficient distance to the 17th and 18th places. The game at the tenth place Braunschweig (16-20 points) starts at 15:00 and 500 fans will be admitted. As always, MagentaSport will broadcast live.
After the immensely energy-sapping Double Week in the EuroLeague with the narrow loss in Barcelona and the convincing win over Maccabi, Bayern want to confirm their good trend of play in Braunschweig. The Lower Saxons are missing an important offensive option for the rest of the season in former FCBB guard Robin Amaize (13.7 ppg) due to a knee injury. Nevertheless, they have won six of their last ten games and thus dispelled initial worries about a season in the relegation battle.
Robin Amaize done for the season
The young team around Spanish coach Jesús Ramírez is currently third in rebounding (37.5 rpg), most balls are caught by the BBL-experienced Kandier Owen Klassen (6.4 rpg, 11 ppg). In terms of points, David Kramer leads the way with an average of 14 points; the 25-year-old made 16 appearances in a Bayern jersey last season. Power forward Martin Peterka (12.7 ppg, 45% threes) and the two guards Tookie Brown (12.7 ppg, 4.3 apg) and Ondrej Sehnal (7.4 ppg; 6.6 apg) are also part of the starting rotation.
