It is certain that the FCBB are yet to have their best lineup due to injuries and planned rotation, and the injury concerns with Othello Hunter remain a worry. Strasbourg's season doesn't start until the beginning of October, most recently they lost a test against LNB rival Elan Chalon 89-76. The captain of the Alsatians is former Braunschweig player DeAndre Lansdowne.
