The dream of prolonging their season was kept alive in the second half by the Fraport Skyliners juniors with hard fought play, heart and excellent team basketball, but with time running down and the chance for a possible game winning shot looming on the horizon, the season ended abruptly for the boys of head coach Eric Detlef as there was only 0,8 seconds on the clock and SC Rist Wedel guard Augie Johnston after missing his first free throw missed his second free throw on purpose to hinder the chances even more for the Skyliners to get one last shot off as SC Rist Wedel advanced to the next round in the PRO B playoffs with a 75-74 win and will face off against the Weissenhorn Youngsters next Sunday in Wedel. Despite the loss, the Fraport Skyliners have no reason to hang their heads because they gave all they had for 40 minutes in their home gym. It was tough having to fight back, but we never hung our heads. They did a good job getting the ball into the paint and we couldnt lock down. That really hurt us down the stretch, but we continued to fight until the end, stressed Fraport Skyliner forward Taylor Brown (198-F-89, college: Bradley). SC Rist Wedel found their rhythm pretty fast let down a bit in the second quarter letting the Fraport Skyliners back into the game giving up a 12-0 run, but in the second half despite being involved in a close game seemed in control and it felt like they wouldnt fold completely. We have been calm all season long as a team and have been used to tight situations in games. We had more self confidence down the stretch then they did. I have to give Frankfurt a lot of credit. They played great and fought hard, stressed SC Rist German Marvin Adu.

The Fraport Skyliners had been without their three German double license players in game one, but in game two had Konstantin Klein and Johannes Voigtmann. The game was also visited by the Fraport Skyliners as head coach Muli Kazurin and assistant coach Klauss Perwas were watching as well as player Dawan Robinson, Zach Peacock, Laquan Prowell, Devin Gibson and Larry Wright. Klein got things rolling dropping a quick three pointer. However SC Rist Wedel didnt hesitate to get going as they thrust out on a 8-0 run to lead 6-3. Califronia native Augie Johnston who clobbered Frankfurt for 35 points in game one hit his first two shots and American Davey Hopkins and German Tobias Lange scored inside as Frankfurt was being killed on the penetration. After German Falko Thelig hit a jumper, SC Rist Wedel kept pumping the ball inside and getting more in the paint buckets from from Hopkins and Lange. Skyliner Taylor Brown then nailed a jumper cutting the SC Rist Wedel lead to 14-8, but SC Rist Wedel was in a groove and got more production in the lane from Marvin Adu and Ismet Akpinar who made a pretty floater in Jeremy Linn style as Frankfurt trailed 18-8. Frankfurt had spurts with instant offense getting a 5-0 run as big man Johannes Voigtman hit a hook shot over Lange and Max Merz connected from the parking lot as Frankfurt trailed 18-13. Hopkins then found Lange again hooking him up with a lob pass for two quick points. SC Rist Wedel had the 25-16 advantage after one quarter. Frankfurt was letting up easy penetration and there was no rotation going on. On offense, Frankfurt was a bit stagnant with no one stepping up. Their lack of one on one defense hurt them most, commented Fraport Skyliner Dawan Robinson. SC Rist Wedel was shooting 62% from the two point range and 0% from outside while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 36% from the field and 40% from the outside. Wedel had the eight to seven rebound edge and only one turnover while Frankfurt had four turnovers.

SC Rist Wedel kept up the pressure in the second quarter hitting the Fraport Skyliners juniors with a 7-2 run and extending their lead to 32-18. Ex Washington State center Fabian Bocke hit a fade away jumper which was matched by a Klein step back jumper. Johnson then nailed a three pointer as Falko Thelig was a step too late. SC Rist Wedel then was able to extend their lead to 32-20 as Bocke dropped a three pointer testing his 50% from outside. Frankfurt was a bit fortunate in this phase as SC Rist Wedel missed three easy buckets on three set plays while Frankfurt couldnt retaliate on offense. After Johnson scored inside for the 37-20 lead, the tide started to turn drastically for the Fraport Skyliners. Frankfurt down 17 points started a furious comeback going on a 12-0 run to cut the Rist lead to 37-32. Frankfurt started to press so annoyingly getting SC Rist Wedel out of their rhythm. On offense Frankfurt started hitting their shots more consistently. Thelig and Voigtmann made easy buckets in the paint, Taylor Brown hit two mid distance jumpers and Thelig made a steal and went coast to coast for the easy transition basket. Hopkins broke the run with apretty spin move and Voigtmann closed out the second quarter with a lay in, but SC Rist wedel led 39-34. Frankfurt stepped it up on defense and wedel got lucky with some penetration buckets and they also missed some easy shots. In the 12-0 run Frankfurt showed more intensity and everyone helped each other on defense and got some steals in the back court, added Philadelphia native Dawan Robinson. SC Rist Wedel was shooting 48% from the field and 50% from the three point line while the Fraport Skyliners juniors were shooting 43% from the field and 29% from the three point line. Both teams had 15 rebounds and nine turnovers.

In the third quarter, the Fraport Skyliners raced out on a mini 4-0 run to cut the SC Rist Wedel lead to 39-38 as Brown scored inside with a slick spin move and Voigtmann made a tip in. SC Rist Wedel was able to keep their slim lead as American Davey Hopkins who played in the NAIA in the States at Cal Baptist and Biola took his team on a 5-0 run making an off balance shot and a runner as Frankfurt trailed 44-39. However since the 12-0 run at the end of the second quarter, the Fraport Skyliners had been a changed team hitting at a good rate and went out on a 9-2 run to take the lead 48-46. It was role player Nikolaj Vukovic who hit a three pointer and then made a steal getting an easy bucket on transition. Klein gave Frankfurt the lead with a lay in. But then it was German Marvin Adu who had only palyed three minutes came in and played the Rist energizer scoring three consecutive buckets and giving SC Rist Wedel the lead back at 52-49. Despite two Taylor Brown mid range jumpers, SC Rist Wedel kept the slim 59-54 lead at the end of the third quarter. We played better defesne, but also still missed easy shots, added Sc Rist Wedel German Tobias Lange. SC Rist Wedel was shooting 54% from the two point range and 33% from the parking lot while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 52% from the field and 25% from the parking lot. Wedel had the slight 23-20 rebound advantage, but 15 turnovers while Frankfurt had 12 turnovers.

Just like at the start of the third quarter, the Fraport Skyliners had another lightening begin in the fourth quarter stunning SC Rist Wedel with a hammering 5-0 run to tie the game at 59-59 as Klein dropped a bomb form outside and Brown hit a mid distance shot. However SC Rist Wedel got the lead back with a Bocke jumper for the 61-59 lead and they would never relinquish the lead again. Frankfurt kept fighting back, but werent getting as many consistent stops anymore to get over the hump. Hopkins and Klein traded three pointers, but Frankfurt still trailed 65-64. SC Rist Wedel then dropped an unwanted 6-1 run to lead 71-65. Johnson who was kept in check at times scored when he had to in the fourth quarter sneaking inside for an easy hop and made free throws. Eric Detlef then took a time out and drew up a special play for the inbounds play and Falko Thelig orchestrated a perfect ally op pass to Taylor Brown who slammed home the ball as Frankfurt trailed 71-67. I am really not known for making dunks in games. I cant even remember the last ally-op dunk that I had. It was the perfect pass from Thelig, but that is what he is known for, smiled Taylor Brown. Frankfurt kept up the pressure, but time was running out. Thelig and Klein made shots and SC Rist Wedel had problems making free throws allowing Frankfurt to draw nearer trailing 74-71. After Hopkins made one free throw, Frankfurt trailed with 75-71 with 12 seconds to play. Brown then hit a three pointer as Frankfurt trailed 75-74 with 0,8 seconds remaining. Johnson then missed both free throws as time ran out and SC Rist Wedel advanced to the next round of the playoffs. It sucks when there isnt enough time on the clock after my three pointer. Each game needs the 0 to come at the end. Too bad that we couldnt get off a good shot at the end, added Taylor Brown. Klein hit some big shots at the end, but we kept our nerves to win. I think that we wanted to win more, said Tobias Lange.

SC Rist Wedel were led by Davey Hopkins with 19 points. Augie Johnston contributed 18 points. Tobias Lange contributed 11 points and Fabian Bocke added 10 points and six rebounds. The Fraport Skyliners juniors were led by Taylor Brown and Konstantin Klein with 19 points a piece. Johannes Voigtmann had 13 points, 12 rebounds and three assists. The Fraport Skyliners juniors finished their season shooting 41% from the field and 30$ from outside and lost the rebound battle 33-32. Despite having five extra possessions on account of the 14-19 turnover ratio, they couldnt take advantage of it. One thing Frankfurt showed all season long was their fighting mentality. Our biggest strength today was never giving up even when we were down by 17 points. Our defense on the ball was great and we held Johnston to half of what he made in the firstgame, expressed Taylor Brown. SC Rist Wedel Tobias Lange had seen Frankfurt twice and was impressed with the team. Frankfurt has many young players and I have followed their school program. I like their concept. The young players get to play. Too bad that they are out. They have a lot of potential, expressed Tobias Lange. The season of American Taylor Brown is also done, but he is positive about his season in the PRO B. My season was good. It was tough coming so late to the team and never practicing with the team since I only practiced with the Beko BBL team. I hope that I played well enough to be able to extend my career. The BBL is faster and more physical. I hope that one day I could show my skills at that level, stressed Taylor Brown.

Sometimes the beauty of where a basketball player is able to call his athletic and intellectual home for four years doesn't change even when he moves on to the professional level.
