The basketball players from Brose Bamberg got off to a good start into the season of the Basketball Bundesliga (BBL). The team of coach Johan Roijakkers won at the BG Göttingen with 82:76 points and thus somewhat concealed the bankruptcy in the Champions League qualification. In the first half everything went according to plan, Brose acted with focus and went into the dressing room with a 46:37 advantage – whereupon they lost their rhythm in the third quarter: the hosts closed up to one point before the last round (58: 59). But Bamberg improved and ultimately deserved to win. Bayreuth and Würzburg, on the other hand, botched their debuts. Bayreuth started his away game in Giessen sovereign, was still clearly in the lead with 47:35 points at the break. But the hosts got better and better, were within striking distance before the last quarter (61:66) and rolled over the completely indisposed Upper Franconia to the 86:74 success. It was similar for the Würzburgers, who came under the wheels of the Merlins Crailsheim with 84: 111. At halftime, the guests were still 50:47 ahead, but in the third quarter, Würzburg had a “relatively large collective breakdown” according to coach Denis Wucherer, which the Merlins used to run a 24: 5 run.
