Polar bears are dangerous

Only a good 42 hours and an exhausting journey lie between the final siren in Madrid and the jump ball in the 8,000-seat oVP Arena in Bremen on Sunday at 5 p.m. for the Brose basketball team from Bamberg.30 p.m. And the relegation-threatened Eisbaren Bremerhaven want to make the most of this advantage. But the table eighth from Bamberg has in the play-off race nothing to give away.

Defeat in basement duel in Erfurt

After the 90-98 defeat on Easter Sunday in the basement duel in Erfurt, the alarm bells are ringing again for the team of long-time Brose assistant coach Arne Woltmann, although the lead over Ivan Pavic’s team is still four points – however, due to the eight-point defeat, the direct comparison also went to the team from Thuringia, which is peppered with numerous ex-Bambergers.
Already with the close 74:79 defeat in the middle of December in Bamberg the north Germans underlined that they are by no means cannon fodder. Sharpshooters Jordan Hulls, Tre Bussey and Johnny Berhanemeskel had a brilliant day at the Brose Arena: the Polar Bears sank eleven threes on 18 attempts (61 percent scoring rate) in the Bamberg basket and led 61:52 after 26 minutes. In the final period, the home team was much more aggressive, allowing the guests only eleven points and winning the exciting game.
“From Friday night onwards, our attention will be focused solely on the Bundesliga. We have to show right away in Bremerhaven that the victory against Ludwigsburg was not a flash in the pan, but that we can also hold our own away from home”, emphasizes Bamberg’s power forward Augustine Rubit, who is still annoyed by the surprising 98-105 defeat in Gottingen two weeks ago. The recipe for success of the 28-year-old, who became a father a week and a half ago, is: “We have to focus on defense and rebound well, then the offensive actions will come by themselves.”
“The Bamberg quality is beyond question. They are all internationally experienced top players, who are very effective, especially in the offense. Nevertheless, we believe in our chance and want to play better than last time in Erfurt. The large backdrop and the great atmosphere in the oVB Arena will hopefully inspire us”, says Polar Bears coach Arne Woltmann. On Friday, 7000 tickets for the third “Hanse-Game” had already been sold the Bremerhavener in Bremen sells.
