After the nerve-racking defeat after two losses against trier, the young pikes in the relegation battle must turn their focus to the next opponent as quickly as possible. They have analyzed the reasons for the defeat and are setting about the upcoming tasks with fresh vigor. After all, there is still a third of the season to play, and the baunach team still has every chance of making it to the bottom of the league despite the deficit. But for this they must finally turn the good performances into something payable. Saturday in kirchheim unter teck they will have the next chance to do so.
The knights have nine wins so far and also need every success they can get to have a say in the play-off places. Surprisingly, they are in foreign halls so far much more successful than at home in their small sports hall. The kirchheimers have only won three games in front of their vociferous fans, but they want to improve this poor record as quickly as possible. On the other hand, the young pikes can not be satisfied with their record, because except for the victory in heidelberg they always went as losers from the parquet.
In kirchheim, you should pay special attention to the three US pros goodwin, graf and rendleman, who are responsible for more than half of the points scored by the hosts. Andreas kronhardt and ex-baunach player phillip daubner can also pose problems for any opponent on a good day. Daubner, in particular, has always been able to deliver outstanding performances against his former team. He was also the top scorer for the knights in their 86-72 win in the first leg at graf-stauffenberg-halle, scoring 18 points.
For the young pikes, the main thing will be to minimize the number of ball losses and act more as a team. The learning process is in full swing, and the two coaches felix czerny and mario dugandzic know exactly where to put the lever.
