EWE Baskets Oldenburg
We are happy with this first win, although it did not come easy. It is a difficult situation for us, with all these players out. A win with a bigger margin would have been possible, but if you look at our three-point percentage, it is not a surprise having difficulties against a zone defense. I have to compliment Chris Kramer, who had to play more than 35 minutes again and still led us to our first victory. Having Julius Jenkins, Casper Ware and Maurice Stuckey back will be crucial for our team. Our plan was to look for our advantages under the basket. Adam Chubb and Philipp Neumann had a great game again. When Charleroi played man to man, our plan worked out perfectly, when they switched to zone, we were not patient enough and forced some shots.
