Duplicity of events.
The basketball players from Weilheim also lost the home game against the Baskets Munich.
Curiously, the result was exactly like the week before against Wolnzach.
Weilheim - The Baskets Munich proved to be one size too big for the basketball players of TSV Weilheim.
Like a week before against Wolnzach, the TSV basketball players had to accept a significant defeat this time as well.
Curiously, the result was exactly the same as the week before, 68:88.
Compared to the Wolnzach game, when the TSV basketball players were already clearly behind at halftime (27:46), the gap against Munich was significantly lower at the break (36:42).
“Unfortunately, after a good first half, the boys lost the connection in the third quarter,” said Florian Willkomm, sporting director of the Weilheim team.
Weilheimer also with bad luck in the end
The home side struggled a few times with the conclusion. “A lot of our balls that just fell out went in on the other side,” said Willkomm, regretting the lack of luck in his team. “We also lacked the strength and intensity a bit,” added coach Darryl Millwood. A big handicap for the Weilheimers was that they had to do without Andy Brem, Philipp Brenner and Andreas Sedlmayr. "It will be difficult against a team of equal players and a very experienced Munich team," said Millwood.
Despite this weakness in personnel, his protégés designed the first quarter largely open, although they had problems with the rebounds and with the distance throws. Under the basket, the Munich team caught significantly more rebounding balls, and initially the distance throws of the Weilheimers did not find their way to the goal. The leadership initially changed several times. Ultimately, at the end of the quarter, the guests developed a small lead (20:15), which remained almost unchanged in the second round and only increased by a single point. What caught the eye: The "Baskets" showed a tremendous accuracy in their three-point throws. Within seven minutes they sank four of them. Alex and Andy Thumser kept the Weilheimer with their hits in the game.
After the break, however, the guests really stepped on the gas, and they were lucky enough with their throws. The TSV basket hunters, however, struggled with the conclusion. As a result, the gap grew to 20 points by the end of the third quarter (47:67). In the final quarter, the people of Munich cleverly managed their tour. The Weilheimer had to do without Johnny Millwood in the course of the game, who was troubled by a cold. At least the hosts tried hard. “But we didn't have the means to turn things around. But there are more important opponents than the baskets who have to be beaten, ”said Willkomm.
