Basketball: Bayern first finalist for German championship

The basketball players of FC Bayern Munich have been confirmed as the first finalists for the German basketball championship. In Würzburg they also won the third game of the semi-final playoff series.

The basketball players of FC Bayern Munich are the first team to qualify for the playoff finals for the German championship. The Munich team won against the Würzburg Baskets on Sunday with 75:61 (38:33) and ended the best-of-five semi-final series with 3:0.

The opponent for the final series will be determined between the Niners Chemnitz and Alba Berlin. “We are just happy to be in the finals. We don’t care who our opponent will be,” said Munich’s Carsen Edwards on the streaming channel Dyn.

There was a bit of bad news for the 3,140 enthusiastic fans in the sold-out tactake Arena before the game even started. The Würzburg team, already plagued by numerous injuries, had to do without Isaiah Washington (ankle injury) in the third game. Nevertheless, the home team quickly found their way into the game, sank most of their attempts into the opponent’s basket and only allowed the favorites to score twelve points.

Bayern much more efficient from the second quarter

Bayern changed their lack of precision in the final stages in the second quarter. The title favorite was now much more efficient both under their own basket and in the offensive and caught up. Würzburg, on the other hand, could not maintain their initial power and wasted too many balls. The guests took advantage of this and took the lead for the first time at 24:22 in the middle of the second quarter.

After the break, Bayern continued to pull ahead. Ibaka in particular was unstoppable under the basket. Würzburg never gave up, but had nothing to counter either. Nothing changed in the final quarter and the cup winners finished the game confidently. “Pride prevails. We did our best. It was a great season,” said Baskets coach Sasa Filipovski.

For Würzburg’s Felix Hoffmann, his career ended in defeat. The 34-year-old was nevertheless celebrated by the fans and said goodbye with tears in his eyes.
