For Austria’s basketball champions OCS Swans Gmunden, the hoped-for sixth home win in a row was clearly out of reach. UBSC Graz, which had not agreed to postpone the game due to a number of corona cases among the “basket hunters” from the Salzkammergut (Güttl, Gunnarsson, Streitberger were missing), took advantage of the moment and clearly won 90:59 in front of 1069 visitors in the Raiffeisen Sports Park (48:32) through.

The decimated Swans couldn’t find a solution, especially against Zach Cooks (28 points). “We had no strength. But it was not expected that we would go into this,” said CFO Harald Stelzer.

For the Raiffeisen Flyers Wels, the “double” against Kapfenberg went according to plan. After reaching the cup semi-finals on Friday (91:74 away), the Messestadt team retained the upper hand in the Superliga with home advantage after an unleashed third quarter (32:14) with 78:71 (29:33).

Renato Poljak shone with 18 points and eight rebounds. “I’m very proud of the team, congratulations on these victories. It’s nice that we confirmed the energy performance from the cup,” said Flyers coach Sebastian Waser.
