Bene Vekalas Hits From The Bank Of The Rhein River And Bonn Win 11th Game In Row At Home Against Frankfurt 81-75 - Apr 15, 2013

For many years, Bamberg was a place where the Frankfurt Skyliners went, played 40 minutes and lost and went home again and probably enjoyed the beautiful drive most to the pretty Bavarian city than their woes on the court. Frankfurt finally won in the 2010 playoffs lifting that dreaded Bamberg curse, but talking about jinxes is something nobody likes to talk about, but that terrifying B word keeps creeping up as Bonn has been a place be it the old Hardtberg gym or the new Telekom dome where they havent won in more than 8 years. The last time, Frankfurt was able to exit the court with a victory, Bamberg was still searching for their Beko BBL title, Fraport Skyliner center Johannes Voigtmann was 12 years old, Telekom Baskets Bonn center Chris Ensminger was already in his 30s and winning Beko BBl rebound titles as if they were growing on a Quaking Aspen in his home state Ohio and Alba Berlin point guard Dashaun Wood was making a name for himself at Wright State. There were some games to be remembered like the OT loss in 2009 where Titus Ivory brought the game into OT where the team then got squashed, two years ago despite a Derrick Rose like performance from Dashaun Wood scoring 20 points, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out seven assists, the team lost a squeaker 92-89 and perhaps the most bitter loss of all being last season where four months of hard work where the team came from 17th place back to ninth place and having that golden opportunity to reach the playoffs on the last game day only to lose badly 81-62 as a 19-9 second quarter run by Bonn got them going and carried them to victory. Frankfurt had no remedy how to stop 38 year old Chris Ensminger who made the zone look his own feeding ground and where he played like a real tough man among Kids. It was the last game of Jermareo Davidson as he scored 18 points as well as that of sniper Jimmy Mckinney who contributed 13 points. The Fraport Skyliners returned back to Bonn looking to snap their 10 game losing streak there, but once again came up short losing 81-75 and have been winless in Bonn for the last 99 months. One man that has seen many games between both teams is Telekom Baskets Bonn sport director Andreas Bottcher who cant explain the dominance either. We also had a stretch where we lost many games in Frankfurt. I remember Oluoma Nnamaka winning a game on the last play and then us winning game five in Frankfurt in 2008. There were times where Frankfurt wasnt playing well in the league, but came here and played very hard. I will never forget our win in 2009 in OT after Titus Ivory brought Frankfurt in to OT. One thing that I noticed tonight wasnt seeing Jimmy mCkinney, smiled Andreas Bottcher. New England native Jared Jordan has played Frankfurt three times in the Telekom Dome and left the floor three times as winner. The first game was carnival weekend where it is always a tough atmosphere and last season was a win or lose for the playoffs. Our fans really help us. WE really have a very good home court advantage here. Our fans understand the game and they see themselves as part of the team. When we get going, our fans really get going as well, said Jared Jordan. I can understand Frankfurt losing here. It is really hard to win in tight games. One or two quick baskets and Bonn is in the game again. The fans are great here. You have to take the wind out of Bonn early to have a chance, stated Johannes Voigtmann.

The Telekom Baskets Bonn had many important components for the win like American Jamel Mclean who always banged under the boards and kept going inside scoring and drawing fouls. However the most important player for the Telekom Baskets Bonn was 29 year old 192cm shooting guard Benes Veikalis who led Bonn with 22 points and scored eight points in the last minute to help lead Bonn to the win. Veikalis who is playing his second season in Bonn and last season played 35 games: 13.5ppg, 3.4rpg, 1.8apg, FGP: 61.4%, 3PT: 41.0%, FT-3 (88.5%); EuroChallenge: 9 games: 11.3ppg, 3.1rpg, 2.9apg, FGP: 55.3%, 3PT: 34.3%, FT-3 (93.3%). His stats have been down somewhat this season, but when his team needs him to score from downtown then he is a guy that they can always rely on. Teammate Jared Jordan understands that for him to get assists, guys like Veikalis have to hit and that is something he does. I told you last season in an interview that Veikalis is one of the most underrated players in the league. The last two seasons he has gotten off to slow starts, but he has shown that he is able to bounce back and hit shots. Benas told me after the game that the four point play was the first time in a long time that he had had one again. His shot took the life out of Frankfurt and closed out the game, stressed Jared Jordan. With Bonn up by one point, Veikalis hit a big three pointer and was fouled by Ryan Brooks extending the Bonn lead to 75-70. Fraport Skyliner American Quantez Robertson wasnt surprised by the output from Veikalis, because it was the fourth game that he had seen him play. He made tough and easy shots and got them into rhythm. He is one of those guys that when you leave open, that he will make any sho, warned Quantez Robertson. Fraport Skyliner head coach Muli Katzurin was very analytical after the game, but saw more luck in the shot of Veikalis then anything else.Veikalis was in the zone. He never looked at the rim when he shot it. But when you are in the zone then you make shots like that, explained Muli Katzurin. Veikalis got big eyes when he heard the comment form the Skyliner coach, but took it with humour. That was an incredible shot and I had a little luck, but I definitely was looking at the rim, smiled Benas Veikalas (192-G-83, college: Metro St.).

The Telekom Baskets Bonn came into the game in eight place and needed a win fto stay active in the playoff race since they have even tougher games in the next weeks. Bonn has been playing very strong basketball the last week having won nine of the last 13 games and had to be careful and smart with the constant aggressive come back of the Fraport Skyliners, but in the end had enough energy to come out with the win. This was a difficult piece of work for us. Frankfurt likes to grind out games and they have been playing very good defense the last weeks. We didnt play good defense in the first half, but picked it up in the second half with more intensity. We focused on not letting Zack Peacock or Ryan Brooks beat us, but have other guys try to beat us, stressed Jared Jordan. The Fraport Skyliners have been playing very good basketball the last two months having won seven of their last nine games and had every chance to finally win in Bonn, but just couldnt make the key plays in the last minute to get over the hump for the victory. We had injuries, but this was a game that we could of won. At the end, we gave them momentum by getting unneeded fouls and unnecessary turn overs. This gave them the needed confidence and they took advantage of it. We lost this game more by what we didnt do then what they did, warned ex LTi Giessen 46er Ryan Brooks.

Both teams had injury woes as the Fraport Skyliners were without captain Marius Nolte, Danilo Barthel and Dawan Robinson. The Telekom Baskets Bonn were without American sharp shooter Robert Vaden and German guard Andrej Mangold. The Fraport Skyliners also sporting fashionable white shirts saying We will fight for you. That was definitely something they did for 40 minutes. They took the first lead of the game as Quantez Robertson took the ball from the jump ball and raced to the hoop for the dunk. However Bonn came back right away going on a 6-0 run as Jamel Mclean who played at Xavier with Beko BBL players Stanley Burrell and Kenny Frease right away let his presence be felt going inside on the first two Bonn possessions getting free throws and Veikalis scored from downtown and Wohlfarth-Botterman connected on one free throw. Bonn got into their offensive rhythm quick as Mclean scored inside on a double pump lay up and American Kyle Weems connected on a jumper as the play reminded one on the FC Bayern Munich new offense under Svetislav Pesic where his players fire away as soon as possible not letting the defense adjust on the set play. The only Skyliner who was in a groove was German Johannes Voigtman that came in for American Laquan Prowell who got two quick fouls. He scored twice inside cutting the Bonn lead to 10-6. Bonn continued to have control of the game as Kyle Weems and Wolfarth-Bottermann scored inside as Bonn led 15-9. Voigtmann continued to be in the zone as he made a baby hook, but Weems came back connecting on a tough fade away jumper. Peacock and Jordan then traded buckets, but Bonn still led 20-13. Veikalis scored and last season the only ally-op combination was Jordan to Tony Gaffney, but this season Gaffney is gone and Bonn showed a new connection as Veikalis took a break from sharp shooting and found Weems for the ally-op. Voigtmann closed out the first quarter with a dunk, but Frankfurt trailed 24-17. I dont think that we had that much a problem with the zone since we had seen it against Oldenburg. We just didnt expect it and we couldnt get stops, stressed Ryan Brooks. The Telekom Baskets Bonn were shooting 64% from the field and 33% from outside while the Fraport Sklyiners were shooting 39% from the field and 25% from outside. Bon had the 10-8 rebound edge and one turnover while Frankfurt had no turnovers.
The game remained tight in the second quarter until the Fraport Skyliners took the lead and were able to go into halftime with a sizeable lead. Peacock got Frankfurt started in their comeback with a mid distance jumper. Mclean then caught a Jordan airball and dunking the ball home for the 26-20 Bonn lead. However Frankfurt then took control going on a 14-4 run to take the 34-30 lead. Brooks got the run started with a deep three pointer which was matched by a Jared Jordan fall back shot. It is always difficult to know if Jordan will really shoot it or make that quick kick out pass to the open teammate. Voigtmann and Peacock got three lay ins and Frankfurt had their second lead of the game 31-30. Brooks then nailed another three pointer. After German David Mccray hit free throws, Frankfurt started another run of 11-4 as their offense was in charge with Peacock and Brooks leading the charge. Peacock scored twice as did Brooks. Voigtmann then nailed a jumper as the Fraport Skyliners marched into the locker room at halftime with their heads held high and the 45-36 lead. Frankfurt exploded with 28 points as Peacock and Brooks had 22 points combined. We got more stops and our aggressive defense created a better offensive flow, expressed Ryan Brooks. They got very easy baskets against our zone with their high low play. We didnt play aggressive enough and let them do what they wanted to, added Jared Jordan. The Fraport Skyliners were shooting 53% from the field and 50% from the three point line while the Telekom Baskets Bonn were shooting 52% from the field and 17% from the three point line. Frankfurt had the 16-14 rebound edge. Bonn had six turnovers and Frankfurt two turnovers.

The third quarter remained the lowest scoring in the game as the Telekom Baskets Bonn came back making basketball life very uneasy for the Fraport Skyliners. The Telekom Baskets Bonn jumped out on a 4-0 mini run to cut the lead to 45-40 Jonas Wolfarth-Botterman scored over Prowell and then retrieved a high lob pass from Jordan and slammed home the ally-op pass. With Gaffney gone, Jordan has less ally-op passes, but if he sees the chance then he doesnt hesitate to throw the ball up for whomever. I have less ally-ops this season. Gaffney was a freak. There arent many that could run the fllor like him or get up like he could. I thought that I threw it up to high for Jonas, but he made the play, expressed Jared Jordan. Brooks then nailed a jumper and Bonn then displayed top notch ball movement and waited until the perfect shot which was drained by Jordan as Bonn trailed 47-43. Prowell and Peacock then made free throws as Frankfurt led 51-43. The Telekom Baskets Bonn then made their run going on a 10-0 run to retake the lead 53-51. Mclean hit a high rainbow jumper from the free throw line and nailed free throws. Veikalis hit a three pointer and Mccray connected on free throws for the lead. Wolfarth-Botterman sparked Bonn with two consecutive blocks on Devin Gibson and Quantez Robertson. Peacock then made a dunk, but Veikalis mailed a pull up jumper as Bonn led 56-53 after three quarters. We missed easy shots and had too many turnovers despite having good looks, added Ryan Brooks. The Telekom Baskets Bonn were shooting 50% from the field and 27% from the parking lot while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 40% from the field and 36% from the parking lot. Frankfurt had the 26-25 rebound advantage. Bonn had seven turnovers and Frankfurt only five turnovers.

Both teams came out firing in the fourth quarter hitting their shots at a good rate. Peacock had much intensity leading Frankfurt on a mini 4-0 run scoring on a jumper and on a one hand hook shot as Frankfurt regained the lead 57-56, but would never lead again in the game. Veikalis dropped a three pointer, but Vogtmann hit a jumper knotting the game at 59-59. Jordan hit a three pointer giving Bonn the 62-59 lead and they never looked back. Peacock was on fire hitting two more jumpers as he had eight points in the first three minutes of the fourth quarter, but Frankfurt trailed 64-63. Mclean was key now for Bonn as the club noticed the foul trouble of Frankfurt and took advantage of itdrawing the fifth fouls of Voigtmann and Prowell. Bonn led 67-65 as Quantez Robertson had to play the position four. Mclean got to the free throw line again dropping two free throws for the 69-65 advantage. Young German Konstantin Klein had misfortune missing from outside, but he made up for it with hustle plays like grabbing an offensive rebound from Weems and sneaking inside form the wing and taking the Peacock pass for a layup as Bonn still led 69-67. Weems then stepped up hitting a seemingly impossible fade away jumper from the corner as Bonn led 71-67. Brooks and Klein then hit free throws as Bonn led only 71-70. Then came the key play in crunch time as Veikalis connected for a three pointer and one for the 75-70 lead with 40 seconds to play. I lost him for a second. I figured I could foul him, but he made a big shot, expressed Ryan Brooks. With time running out, Bonn was able to win the game with free throws at the end despite a bucket by Larry Wright and last second three pointer from Quantez Robertson. We had the chance to make a big step here, but we were unable to use it. This was also a big game for Bonn. We were missing a little luck to win here, stressed Johannes Voigtmann. We were fighting hard and we wanted to win, but we had some turnovers and they hit three pointers. That is basketball, commented Muli Katzurin.

The Telekom Baskets Bonn were led by Benas Veikalas with 22 points. Jamel Mclean added 18 points, six rebounds and three assists. Jared Jordan contributed 12 points and seven assists. Kyle Weems chipped in with 11 points and Jonas Wolfarth-Bottermann had 10 points. The Fraport Sklyiners were led by Zach peacock who had 25 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. This was the third game in a row where Zach ahs played much. Players are tired at the end of the season, but he had a great game. This wasnt an easy team, but he had tough opponents. I like how cool he acts on the court and how much confidence he shows in his shots, stressed Johannes Voigtmann. Ryan Brooks and Johannes Voigtmann chipped in with 16 points a piece. The fight to stay in the league remains tight as the Fraport Skyliners will look for a win next weekend at home against TBB Trier and if they do prevail will book the needed ticket to stay in the league.
