Bamberg The Jobstairs Gießen 46ers have been confirmed as the second premature relegated from the basketball Bundesliga after Rasta Vechta. The Hessians lost 90:99 at Brose Bamberg and can no longer achieve relegation.
Coach Rolf Scholz’s team should have won the remaining games and at the same time needed defeats for Syntainics MBC and s.Oliver Würzburg to avert relegation. Bamberg, on the other hand, qualified for the playoffs with their 17th win of the season.
The weakened replacement from Giessen made a decisive false start. The 16:37 deficit after the first quarter ultimately turned out to be too big a mortgage, although the team never gave up.
In an entertaining top game, the second Alba Berlin won 79:78 against the leaders MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg. The Baden-Württemberger had already been determined as the main round champion.
In the game between medi Bayreuth and the Fraport Skyliners, both teams were able to play freely. The home side had the better end on their side. With a clear 81:58 victory, they inflicted the fifth consecutive defeat on Frankfurt. In addition, the Hamburg Towers beat the BG Göttingen with 93:91. The season of the Lower Saxony is thus over after the regular season.
