After a mixed first half of the season in the upper district league, in which the TSV staffelstein men’s basketball team is in sixth place in the table, coach mario reitz’s team impressed with a victory in the district cup. By the 54:49 at BBF kups the staffelsteiner qualified for the final-four-tournament of the cup, which will be played at the end of march.
The district league team from kups had surprisingly defeated the favorite and district upper league team post-SV bamberg with 87:86 in the preliminary round – so the staffelstein team was warned against the surprise team from kups.
"It was clear to us that we could not take the opponent lightly. However, we didn’t expect BBF kups to come out fighting.", said reitz. "This had little to do with gentle basketball then. But we are even more happy that we held out for 40 minutes and won the game in the final quarter."
