The team from Wetzlar faced its’ first task of the new Pokal Cup season without any problems. Two members of the starting line-up, Dirk Kohler and Marco Zwerger, were unable to attend the games, so Coach Nicolai Zeltinger was forced to use his bench and to play some different line-ups during this crucial cup game. Young Kai Gerlach got the nod from the Coach to start the game and had a very strong performance in his twenty minutes of play, with nine rebounds, three assists and 18 points.  USA point guard Michael Paye added 10 assists, and Canadian Richard Peter shot 88% from the field leading the Lahn Dill team to a convincing win.
Berlin: Oliver Hermann (12), Jan-Bruno Rittner (10), Michael Bayer (4), Morten Pedersen (4), Ingo Kaleschke (2), Bernhard Hesse, Jens Majer, Khalid Rahmouni-Alami.
Lahn-Dill: Kai Gerlach (18/1), Joey Johnson (18), Richard Peter (17), Michael Paye (13), Annika Zeyen (10), Felix Schell (8), Gesche Schünemann (8), Thomas Gundert (4), Jan Kampmann.
