Final games against Skywheelers determined
The decision about the German Champion will be made on the 13th and 14th of April
Title-defendants RSV Lahn-Dill, who became one of the final three teams in the last rounds of the Wheelchair Basketball Bundesliga with their 74:60-success over RSB Team Thueringen, will have home advantage for the last two deciding Playoff-Games. The games against Mainhatten Skywheelers are set to take place in Wetzlar’s August-Bebel-Sporthalle.
After the first game, that will take place on the 6th or 7th of April in Frankfurt, nine-time champion RSV Lahn-Dill will be hosting the Mainhatten Skywheelers for the second game at home on the 13th of April at 19.30. Should there be no decision after those two games, a third one will take place the next day, at August-Bebel-Sporthalle, at 16.00.
So this year the Bundesland Hesse is devoted to Wheelchair Basketball, and for the first time in history the German Championship Final will be between two Hesse teams. Mainhatten Skywheelers qualified for the final by triumphing over Zwickau 70:66, after their first game in the Semi-Finals ended 54:52 for Zwickau. Frankfurt have won the title three times, in 1980, 1983, and 1994, and are one of the traditional Clubs in Germany.
In this year’s RBBL-main-rounds the encounters of the two Hesse rival-teams, who are very friendly with each other, have been absolutely thrilling. RSV won in Frankfurt only just 52:47, before their home game that became one for the history books. In that game Wetzlar was behind 7:31, before they managed to pull back and win 72:65.
The Hesse Final is a great start for the countdown of Eurobasketball 2013, which will take place between 28th of June and 7th of July in Eissporthalle Frankfurt. Overall there will be twelve German National Players on Final court; for Wetzlar Thomas Boehme, Thomas Gundert, Jan Haller, Dirk Koehler, Bjoern Lohmann, Gesche Schuenemann, and Annabel Breuer, and for Frankfurt Sebastian Wolk, Sebastian Magenheim, Andreas Kress, Anne Briessmann, and Maria Kuehn. Another big argument for Hessen’s strength when it comes to Wheelchair Basketball.
