Can The EWE Baskets Oldenburg Annoy A Top Team In The Playoffs? - Apr 6, 2013

Who could forget the stunning upset of Oldenburg against Bonn in game 5 of the 2009 Beko BBL final where Bonn looked like the sure winner, but lost thanks to a Jason Gardner shot, free throw and Je Kel Foster free throw. The Oldenburg title was as refreshing for a league that was already beginning to grow as rapidly as North Dakota is in 2013 and the title really seemed as unlikely as how Tim Ohlbrecht has been blessed with making the jump to the NBA this season. That title seems like ages ago as in the seasons since, the EWE Baskets Oldenburg have stayed glued in their tracks as the further climb to a top team in the Beko BBL has been halted. The club continues to have a good budget and potent players, but forming that second title team to a winning chemistry has been denied. In 2009-2010, the team had most of its title team back, but surprisingly were upset by Braunschweig in the quarterfinals, in 2010-2011, the team was even more talented, but was already suffering the here one season gone the next season players as well as a lack of chemistry losing a tough 5 game playoff series to Alba Berlin and last season missed the playoffs as they were led by mr ego ex NBA player Bobby Brown who at times looked like he was playing one on five against the opponent. Coach Predrag Krunich was let go who seemed a bit burned out. With new coach Sebastian Machowski and the right players, the team could annoy a top favorite in the playoffs. On top of their consistent season in the Beko BBL, the team is on a smooth way of possibly winning their first international title in the Eurochallenge as they have reached the final four. Ex Skyliner Miro Todic explains why Oldenburg is so strong this season. They are a real good team with very good Americans and Germans. They are very strong at all positions. I remember playing against Adam Chubb and Ronald Burrell. They also have very good guards with Julius Jenkins and Rickey Paulding and the kid Chris Kramer is a very good player. Each player always gives the maximum. Oldenburg likes to use every player so some games one player will play more than other players. Their coach uses the whole team, stressed ex Frankfurt Skyliner Miro Todic. Oldenburg have a lot of quality players, but it depends how well they can survive a long playoff series. They play a lot more aggressive defense than last season. They are deep at all positions and I think they can reach the semi finals of the playoffs. I think they can win the Eurochallenge when it comes down to a one game series, expressed basketball expert Steven Clauss.

With so much hype before the season, the EWE Baskets simply werent a consistent force in the Beko BBL last season. After starting off the season with a two game winning streak, they then lost three games in a row. They had two three games winning streaks, but simply too little to be able to compete with the Bambergs, Berlins or Ulms this season One of their biggest problems was their lack of being able to beat any top playoff teams. They lost the season series to the Artland Dragons where David Holston was able to lead his team clearly over ex NBA player Bobby Brown. The club was unable to beat Bamberg or Alba Berlin or ratiopharm Ulm. Their biggest wins were against FC Bayern Munich and Bremerhaven. The team continued to be an enigma. Losing in Wurzburg can always happen, but only scoring 42 points when it was averaging 80 points a game just forces the basketball follower to say WOW. In the next game, they score 89 points against one of the top defensive teams in the league with the Brose Baskets Bamberg. They finished the season with a 3-4 record and missed the playoffs finishing in tenth place with a record of 16-18. Long time head coach Predrag Krunich was let go near the end of the season as he was unable to reach his players anymore.

The goal of the EWE Baskets Oldenburg this season is reach the Beko BBL playoffs and will need to help support the new 6000 seat arena which will be ready for use in the Spring of 2013. The first order of business was getting a strong coach and that was done with ex German national player Sebastian Machowski. Machowski has had a very consistent and strong short coaching career winning a cup in his second season in 2009 with SKK Kotwica Kolobrzeg. He then moved to the New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig taking their program to the playoffs for three consecutive seasons. With Braunschweig he also understood how to find the right mix of players to have success. With Oldenburg, he has made the next step going to a potential playoff team that has a higher budget than the Phantoms. Machowski is different to Krunich in that he seeks more communication with his players and doesnt rely on a standard system, but allows his players more freedom and that each player always has many options to be able to make their own decisions. Machowski did a good job keeping possibly more players than one might have expected with seven and getting four new components for the building of the winning team. Only one player is left from the 2009 title win and that is American Rickey Paulding who is starting his sixth season for the team and is the heart and soul of the team and can still hurt you with his offense. Adam Chubb remains who has become more of a beast under the boards this season simply because he needs to do more there. Power Forward Ronald Burrell returns who can still battle with the best of them and can be a deadly player that can make the extra pass. Ex Skyliner Dominic Bahiense De Mello returns for a second season and is looking for more minutes. The team also Jannik Freese who is an animal in practice, but is still searching for his Beko BBL breakthrough. The team also returns Robin Smeulders who is a solid role player from the bench and German Kevin Schmit. The team signed experienced American Julius Jenkins who has the most hardware on the team and gives that deadly scoring touch. The team brought in classic point guard Dru Joyce who is still developing as a player. Konrad Wysocki also returns back to the Beko BBL after three seasons in Poland. Wysocki can play the three four position and will give the team energy on both ends of the court. American Chris Kramer was also added wo is a work horse on offense and defense and sometimes one may think he likes defense more than offense. He led Wurzburg in scoring and can penetrate with the best of them. The biggest strength of the team is their experience and guys that have won titles. The team also is very athletic and will defend better than last season due to guys like Kramer and Wysocki arriving. With more freedom on offense, the team should have more joy for creativity in the offense. The team is very talented and can really only defeat themselves and not think too much about having to get back to the Beko BBL playoffs. With Chubb, the team only has one strong dominant center, so team rebounding will have to be on the agenda during every game.

Their biggest wins of the season were sweeping Alba Belrin, Artland Dragons and s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg. They also beat FC Bayern Munich. They also have been very solid on the road having a 7-5 record as they will ride into the Fraport arena with a lot of self confidence. The Fraport Sklyiners continue to ride the wave of success having won six of their last seven games and have that never die, take no prisoners attitude and are afraid of no team and Oldenburg will be another big test to see if they can win their fifth game in a row. They are very deep. We will have to play very good defense like the last weeks. We cant take them lightly, We will be motivated like in the last games. We will be ready, commented Ryan Brooks. One player who will be more than ready and wanting revenge is Devin Gibson. I want them so bad. Tez and I messed up that inbounds pass resulting in them winning game. They have got better, but so have we. It will be a battle and a great game, warned Devin Gibson. After the great win in Wurzburg, Skyliner captain Marius Nolte bolted from the bench to congratulate his teammates like Flash Gordon and he may be even faster off the bench after a win against Oldenburg. We respect Oldenburg. We will be ready and we want revenge. If we beat them, you can bet I will be jumping around even more, smiled Marius Nolte.

The EWE Baskets started the season hot winning four of their first five games winning in Munich and in Wurzburg two very difficult places to win at, but since then have a 3-4 record seeming to be in a early season funk. There only big highlight this season so far has been their immaculate unbeaten record in Eurochallenge play. This will be another tough game for the Fraport Skyliners as every game is a game seven for them this season as they might be short handed again and Oldenburg is a stronger team than Wurzburg and rebound very well. Oldenburg is one of the quality teams in the league and made big changes from last season. They have a good roster with good inside out play. Oldenburg is more talented than Wurzburg and we will have to work hard. We have to dictate the game with our defense and not let them run and make easy points, stressed Fraport Skyliners head coach Muli Katzurin. We have to come out aggressive on defense and execute on offense, added Quantez Robertson.
