Defending the first place
It is a dream start for us in this season. Four wins in four games and being the only undefeated team in the league is a big thing.
In the last game against BC Hellenen I did not have the occasion to play against my friend Alek Pikl. The Slovenian “Derby” will have to be postponed for 2020. This, all because of Alek! He got suspended for three games after a fight in the game against Treuchtlingen, demonstrating he is a real Yugo :) Just kiddin’ Alek.
However, the game was far away from easy. Charlie stepped up with 35 points, and with some experience, we took the win home and stayed undefeated.
Tomorrow we will be defending the first place in Rosenheim. We do not have good memories in this place (last year we lost there with a buzzer beater). From now on, everybody is playing against us with more than 100%, and they want to beat the “undefeated team”, but we are more than confident.
In Rosenheim I will find another friend; Johannes Raab. He was my teammate in Nördlingen, and is part of one of the best season I ever had. We won together the championship of the 1. Regionalliga in the 2014/2015 season and we are sharing some good memories from this year. It will be nice to see him again.
We had some healthy problems this week. I skipped Wednesday practice because of a cold and fever, but I hope I will be fit for tomorrow. Milan Tesic rolled his ankle and is fighting to come back to give us his big energy under the basket. We need him!
Meanwhile, you can follow our game in Rosenheim on the FIBA Liveticker tomorrow at 19.00 (find the link on www.topstar-kangaroos.de) and you can support our second team at 19:30 at the Mehrzweckhalle in Stadtbergen against TSV Weilheim! The entrance is free.
Let's go Kangaroos!
