Here's to a new start: After the disappointing start to the playoff semifinals against Ulm with the clear 87-69 loss, the Bayern basketball team wants to bounce back in Game 2 on Tuesday night. "I think the game was a wake-up call for us, this must not happen to us again," said captain Andreas Obst after the light Monday practice at the beginning of which had been a video analysis by coach Andrea Trinchieri. The game tips off on Tuesday at 20:30 at the Audi Dome.

"That game was a wakeup call"

In the fight to tie up the series, Corey Walden will play again after the 30-year-old American had to watch after an illness on Sunday alongside Lucic, Rubit and Hunter.


Walden's experience should help avoid runs by Ulm as that seen on Sunday in the second half (45-28). Trinchieri said after the game that "mentally" they were not up to the tempo set by the guests.

Who will rebound?

"We have to play even more physically this game and have to really stand up to it and not let their aggressiveness rattle us," Obst summed up the analysis a day later. In addition, the FCBB certainly have to win the rebounding duel in the second showdown with Ulm on Sunday as the guests had a 41-33 advantage in Game 1.
