Rostock's basketball players are challenged in Braunschweig. After the last two defeats, there should finally be a win again. But the coach warns.
Rostock (dpa / mv) - After the defeats against the play-off candidates from Oldenburg and Bonn, the Rostock Seawolves want to stop their negative run in the basketball Bundesliga at the Löwen Braunschweig.
Before the game of eleventh in the table against the relegation-threatened Lower Saxony (16th) on Wednesday (6.30 p.m.), head coach Christian Held warned, also with a view to the narrow 92:93 defeat of the hosts in Ludwigsburg: "It will be an incredibly difficult game for us." Braunschweig had made up a 20-point deficit in sixth place and was still leading by five points 18 seconds before the end, but gave up the possible victory due to ball losses.
"Brunswick is a very young team with some experienced players, especially in the foreign positions. Because of their youth, they, like us, have strong fluctuations in their game," said Held, adding with reference to the Ludwigsburg game: "They almost did It shows the incredible quality of their players, who have proven themselves at the highest level."
In order to be successful, it is important for his team to build on the many positive approaches of the past few weeks. "We defended excellently. We want to show that against Braunschweig," emphasized the 34-year-old. After only 62 points against Bonn in the last match, the offensive of the newly promoted team should come back into focus, added Held.
For the Seawolves it is the last BBL game before the international break. It then continues on March 4th with the game at the Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club.
