Rostock and Munich are 800 kilometers apart, the biggest distance between any other BBL club and the Audi Dome. However, the Bayern basketball team is not expecting a travel-weary guest when they welcome the Seawolves to their penultimate home game of the regular season this Wednesday evening. The Bundesliga promoted team from the Baltic coast should be in good spirits when they visit Munich because they have already secured their position in the BBL next year and even still have a real chance of playoff participation.

"Rostock is having a great season and has its own style, and you can only congratulate them on that," says Bayern head coach Andrea Trinchieri about the guests. The game will tip off at the Audi Dome at 19:00.


Next game vs Goetting and then Heidelberg

On Sunday, at 18:00 the FCBB play at the promising playoff candidate Goettingen. The last home game before the playoffs in the Audi Dome (May 16) is the duel with Heidelberg on Thursday, May 4 (19:00).

The Rostock Seawolves have won 14 of their 30 games so far, with current eighth-place Wurzburg (15-16) still within reach with just one more win. The newcomer led by young coach Christian Held, 34, relies on team basketball (18.4 apg), with playmaker JeQuan Lewis (16 ppg, 7.4 apg), forward Derrick Alston (15.6 ppg) and guard Tyler Nelson (14.5) bearing the brunt of the work on offense.

Play & Win

The top rebounder is center Selom Mawugbe (6.7 rpg), who also averages 8.4 points and has produced the most blocks in the league (2.2).

Bayern won the first matchup 78-65 in front of just under 5,000 fans thanks to a good first half, "there was a great atmosphere in the hall with very good fans," Trinchieri recalls. He will remind his team of the second half, in which they took their foot off the gas.
