After the last twelve cross-competition victories in a row, and to top it all off with the grandiose cup triumph, Gmunden went yesterday with a lot of self-confidence into the top basketball game at home against leaders Vienna. But the reigning champions, who surprisingly lost in the semi-finals of the cup final four to Graz, then trimmed the Swans down at Traunsee in front of a crowd worthy of the final with 95:82 (45:34).
“This time they were better in every respect and we lost the ball too much,” summed up CFO Harald Stelzer. Assistant coach Aleksi Koskinen was once again on Gmunden’s line after head coach Anton Mirolybov had to undergo another operation because of his cancer. But even he couldn’t prevent the Gmundner team from collapsing with serious consequences in the second quarter. The 12:25 there paved the way for the Viennese to later victory. Even a show of strength that was so typical for the Swans this season didn’t help in the end. Vienna can hardly be caught in the regular season.

They already looked like the losers of the game, but the Raiffeisen Flyers Wels crowned a great race to catch up against the Oberwart Gunners with a 91:88 victory in overtime. “Four minutes before the end, eleven points behind and still turning, hats off to the team,” said coach Sebastian Waser. Elvir Jakupovic shot the Welser with a three into overtime, where he, Chase Jeter and Arydas Gydra still led the Flyers to success.
