Team boss Chris O’Shea has therefore rejuvenated the squad before the upcoming home games in Graz today against basketball superpower Croatia (8.20 p.m.) and on Sunday against Switzerland (5.05 p.m. / live ORF Sport +). “Our focus already is on preparing the young players for the summer of 2023 when the final qualifying round takes place,” said O’Shea.

The twelve-man squad is led by Gmunden’s veteran Benedikt Güttl and the experienced Viennese Bogic Vujosevic and Jozo Rados. With Daniel Köppel, a second Swans player is part of the game. Lukas Simoner (23) from UBSC Graz, 17-year-old Omer Suljanovic from the offspring of Pallacanestro Reggiana (It) and almost 19-year-old David Fuchs (BBC Ulm/D) could make their debuts in the ÖBV team.

Austria can only surprise against the Croatians today. The basketball top nation leads the group after two opening wins, while the O’Shea squad finds itself at the bottom of the table. In previous games, Croatia not only dominated against Switzerland, but also defeated the strong Poles in a basketball crime thriller. The squad coming to Graz is similarly young to that of the Austrians – but with leaders like Dominik Mavra and talents like Roko Prkacin and Mateo Dreznjak, the Croatians have a lot of quality.
