Skyliners lose in Ulm: the Bitter anniversary for Robertson

"The last Situation, I have to look at me again. But I'm very clear with my players.“ Sebastian Gleims a short comment on Tuesday evening immediately after 76:80 Fraport Skyliners in Ulm. A day later, the Frankfurt basketball coach had made an accurate picture of the contentious and, at first glance, opaque game situation at the end of the Game. With the result that, in his view, for the Skyliners-Profi Michael Kessens and the Ulm Dylan Osetkowski each with a technical Foul "justified" would have been. But at the free-throw line Osetkowski, who transformed both throws for 78:73 was allowed.

This was the Ulmern the Bundesliga victory in the exciting final phase. For Kessens, who cashed in addition, an unsportsmanlike Foul, was completed on each other eleven seconds of meeting before the final siren. Why? After his successful Dunking to the 76:73, the Ulmer Center Osetkowski on the Ring and hit the right under the Frankfurt Center Kessens with the feet to the head. Kessens held still, silent, and roused only with difficulty. Then he pushed the proper Osetkowski of the crowd easily. For a Moment, the emotions predominated in both. Kessens, which fell unequal treatment at the penalty miss, acknowledged to be due to the foul load premature end-of-service with angry Looks, and a great lack of understanding. He had to be calmed down by his team-mates.

"So it is a little bitter"

The final turmoil hung all parties Involved. "I would have won the game like basketball table. So it is a little bitter,“ said Ulmer building player Thomas Klepiesz. As a particularly bitter the Skyliners felt the loss of two important points in the battle for the Play-off place eight. They had occasion to do this, several decisions of the referees critically. The 54 seconds before the end, as a playmaker Joe Rahon was punished with the score 73:70 to Frankfurt, with an unsportsmanlike Foul. Gleim, however, the Offense ranked only as a "normal Foul". In fact, it was a very hard decision by the referee, who moved to the Frankfurt major consequences. The Ulm game maker By Günther met the first of two free throws, before Troy Caupain scored the points to 74:73.

"In my eyes, there were some unfortunate whistles, which were not, in my opinion, is so not necessary," practiced Gleim in its assessment even in diplomacy. This is also against the Frankfurt's top scorer Matt Mobley (26 points) imposed step was one error at 73:74. Instead of half a Minute to go before the final siren once again in the lead, ran under the dash in the crunch time against the Skyliners. Worthy of discussion was also in the 26. Minute imposed on the offensive foul against Rasheed Moore, at the Frankfurt winger suffered a laceration to the head. The Americans could not be used by Gleim. In sum, the Skyliners a lot of bad luck.
