Well Everyone , i really have to take my hat off for this Basketball team !!!! Not only did they come up from the Kreisliga, but they played great thru out this year currently holding 2nd place with a 6pt spread ahead of Langendreer.
VS VFL Bochum 26.3.17 , the guys played hard but it was not a good day , losing in a 52-48 early sunday morning game . shooting an ugly 1/14 from the freethrow line , the guys still had their chances but in the end came up short . this loss also snapped an 8 game winning streak since the loss to Siegen back in december . the consequences with this loss closes the small chance of maybe getting the chip with a win in Siegen on 30.4 .
VS TSV Hagen 1.4.17 , the guys came out and played great ball !! taking care of Hagen in a 78/33 win . our Big Men rebounded great with 4 players grabbing over 7 . Defense wins ball games , barmen caused alot of TO's and also coming up with 20 steals for the total Stat.

BARMEN shot 50% fg, 38% ft, but had 31 Turnovers (mainly from travelling calls)
I as a coach, have to take my hat off to BG Hagen , they r a very Good Team, and they gave us problems with trying to stop them .
On 18.3.17 , Barmen welcomed Langendreer to BTV Liegnitzer Halle , in a very Early Sunday Morning game . And it showed in Barmen, starting off slow . The guys were not able to get and penetrate to the Basket . ( 1 reason due to the halle being to small , this is not Heckinghauser ) . So with the first quarter being one of the worst quarters for us this year , barmen gave Langendreer a 8/17 lead . Langendreer picked up a new player and he was a BIG BOY . Skills were ok but he managed to hit a few good shots in the quarter .
The second quarter Barmen had to go to other strategies in the offense because of the size of the halle , and started playing ISO , and CLEAROUTS , just to get an opening to the basket . Also applying a 100% press defense and causing three turnovers which turned into fouls by Langendreer , Barmen was quickly shooting free throws for the rest of the quarter cause of Team Fouls . in which we shot 22fts and making 10 . Langendreer had push they points up to 27 before going into a slump and not scoring again until barmen closed the lead to 5 with a 24 /29 difference . and Barmen finishing the 2nd 20/12 only down 1 point 28/29.
The third quarter was a whole new story , the guys were their normal selves. defending the passing line and coming up with steals and taking control of the quarter with a 29/12 and a 57/41 lead in the game . The fourth quarter barmen played steady thru out winning a 13/11 quarter and finishing off langendreer in a 70/52 win .
THIS GAME EVERYONE CAME AND DID THEIR PART ,even when we were behind they didnt give up !!
