It's getting down to crunch time: The third-to-last game of the regular season takes the Bayern Basketball team to BG Goettingen on Sunday evening. It's quite possible that both teams will meet again in the playoff quarterfinals (May 16 and 18 at the Audi Dome), because the team from Lower Saxony is currently sixth in the standings and would therefore face the third-place Cup winner, if things remain the same.
