Serio shines against FCK Rolling Devils

Triple Double and 75:52 success over Kaiserslautern

RSV Lahn-Dill have won sovereignly but without covering themselves with glory, apart from Steve Serio, who showed off a spectacular triple-double, and Jan Haller. Serio combined 19 points with eleven rebounds and 11 assists, and became the man of the day, and National Player Jan Haller scored 85 per cent of his shots. It was also Serio who scored the first point from the free-throw-line a minute into the game.

After this, the guests did not just hand the game to the hosts. First Ryan Wright scored a three (6:7, 4th min), getting his team in front, then later on it was Swiss Janic Binda who scored the 8:9 (5th min). RSV got their lead back with a 6:0-run (14:9, 7th min), but it was obvious that the Wetzlar players were not at their best performance. This way the Rolling Devils were able to keep the game level for the first quarter.
It took until the middle of the second quarter for RSV to speed up their pace and concentration, and set things straight with a 14:4-run. Just the before the break the score was 34:21 (18th min), and thankfully the team continued this way after changeover. First it was old-dog Dirk Koehler who scored the 41:27 (23rd min), before Haller managed to down the ball four times at the end of the third quarter.

At the start of the fourth quarter, Serio and Schell adjusted the scoreboard to 65:38 (35th min), and it looked like the hosts were just walking all over the team from Kaiserslautern. After two time-outs though, they did seem to get into the game a bit better and were able to polish the results a bit. Even though RSV did not shine today, they did get two important points in the fight for the lead of the table against RSB Thuringia Bulls. “We weren’t consequent and determined enough today, which Kaiserslautern took advantage of. In the end the performance was solid though, despite giving away valuable points” said Zeltinger after the game.
