Larry thanks for talking to German Hoops again. A tough 76-70 loss in Weissenfels. It is never easy to win at MBC. What led the Mitteldeutscher BC to having a huge 16 point lead after three quarters?
I wouldn’t say that, we won there last season. They played really good from the start last game and we dug ourselves in a hole that we couldn’t climb out at the end.
Phoenix Hagen still had energy in the fourth quarter and made the game exciting, but couldn´t get the win. Would Phoenix Hagen have got the win with better three point shooting?
No I don’t think so, we have never been defined by our 3pt shooting so that was not a factor, the problem was we got destroyed on the boards and shot 38% for the game, not going to win too many games like that.
