Niels Kifi kept the ball in the basket on the side edge of his back zone, and the German international at Alpha Berlin service has enormous finish quality in such situations. BC In the first quarter of the home game against Central Germany, Kifi did something extraordinary. He did not throw and did not try to cross his opponent with a turn. Kifi passed the ball under the basket with both hands without looking at his own head. Luis Olinde stood there and scored easy points against the surprised guests.
This is an action that Alpha fans are most familiar with from Luke Sigma. The leading player was rested by the coaching staff on Sunday afternoon and sat in public attire in a folding chair behind the crowd. But even without Sigma and Mavoto Lo, who have leg injuries, Alba has no problem against MBC (Astpanhoff 93:82 (32:18, 13:20, 30:21, 18:23)). Berlin, who won their 21st match in the 25th Bundesliga, finished second in the table after a surprise defeat in Hamburg last Tuesday.

Although MBC started with three of the BBC’s highest-scoring Michael Mitchell, Alpha then played exclusively in the first division. The Berliners met very well from a distance and kept the guests busy under the basket. Johannes Theman in particular went to the basket with determination several times and was often dirty. In the first six minutes he was allowed to go in the free-throw line six times. As a side effect, Weisenfelscher quickly faced the wrong issues, which made it difficult for their slender team to make up for it.
Nevertheless, the guests re-entered the game in the second quarter. Meanwhile, the Alpha were already leading by 16 points, but the Berliners abruptly stopped throwing, led by Michael and Quinton Hooker, and MBC slowly but surely narrowed the gap to eight points. “We started well, but then we felt very safe,” said Albas Simon Fontecio, who was the best bowler along with Kifi in Berlin with 17 points.

However, after a weak second quarter, Alpha found the rhythm again – which is especially true for Marcus Erickson. The Swedish long-range sniper had no wins in the first half, but now turned it around and scored more points in the third quarter (15) than his entire team had managed in the ten minutes before the break (13). As his colleagues also went back to work with more focus, the gap quickly grew back to the double-digit range.
In the final quarter, Alpha were outscored by 20 points for the first time by Kifi and Olinde. It seemed like the end, but MBC still didn’t want to give up. The guests went back and forth quickly, meanwhile the Berliners let it go much slower. Home success is no longer in danger. It is true that playmaker Beaton Siva bowed and banged just before the field, however, the mood was slightly lowered.
