Skyliners Frankfurt celebrates undisputed success in Hessenderby and thus extends the defeat streak for the Gießen 46ers.
Skyliners Frankfurt won the Hessenderby in the Bundesliga Basketball League. They won the Gießen 46ers race on Sunday with 90:79 (44:36) and extended their lead into the relegation zones.
The Skyliners dominated from the start and quickly dominated the match. Logically, it was 44:36 for the guests in the first half.
The second division started with an 11-0 lead for Frankfurt. In the last quarter, 46 players regained the climb again and went up again, but that was no longer enough to win at home.
“We didn’t start well and left 14 free throws,” 46ers coach Pete Strobel said after the game. “We have to find a way to make all players, without exception, stay focused from the first minute to the end.” But his counterpart, Diego Ocampo, was also not completely satisfied: “In the end, we probably didn’t know how to finish the game. We learn from that.”
For the members of the Gießen 46ers, this was the seventh consecutive defeat – they remained in the relegation zone in the German Basketball League. On the other hand, the Skyliners were able to differentiate themselves from the lower positions by winning.
