BBL: Heidelberg dupes FC Bayern Munich

As of: April 21, 2024 8:27 p.m

FC Bayern Munich surprisingly finished 16th in the table on Sunday (April 21, 2024). MLP Academics Heidelberg suffered its fifth defeat of the season in the BBL. The Niners Chemnitz couldn’t take advantage of the mistake, but Alba Berlin could.

Because with a win at BG Göttingen, the Chemnitz team could have overtaken Bayern in the table. Like Munich, the Saxons had lost five games, but would have won one more game – but they also surprisingly lost after extra time with 99:100.

Now only Alba Berlin is on par with Bayern shortly before the playoffs. The Berliners defeated Brose Bamberg 98:92 (45:43) in the evening game and now have a record of 22:5 victories. Despite the defeat, the Munich team still has one more success to their name, having played more games.

A special setting inspires Heidelberg

After five successes in a row, Bayern lost completely unexpectedly against relegation candidate Heidelberg 82:89 (44:42), the hosts had moved to the large arena for the special game. 9,796 spectators witnessed the Academics’ coup. For FC Bayern, who have had their playoff ticket in their pocket since last weekend, the away defeat was a bitter disappointment.

The best thrower in coach Pablo Laso’s disappointing team on matchday 29 was Elias Harris with 17 points. In the Academics, the top scorers were Jeffrey Carroll and Justin Jaworski (21 points each), while national player Paul Zipser, who is on loan to Heidelberg from Munich, scored six points.

Successes for Hamburg and Oldenburg

In the further race for places in the play-in tournament, in which the teams ranked seven to ten will fight for two places in the knockout round, Hamburg Towers and EWE Baskets Oldenburg celebrated successes. The Towers (10th place) beat the MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg (8th) in their own hall with 89:84 (48:46). Oldenburg consolidated ninth place ahead of Hamburg with an effortless 87:66 (37:33) at Löwen Braunschweig.
