Brose Baskets BBL Champion!

Brose Baskets got a second consecutive title after 72-65 win in the decisive Game 5 over ALBA. The Winner of the Regular season proved their superiority and defended the title. Last year the favorites overcame Deutsche Bank Skyliners also 3-2 in the Final series.
Brose Baskets by 4 points after three quarters before their 24-13 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was power forward Kyle Hines (198-F/C-86) who scored 12 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks. Guard Brian Roberts (188-G-85) chipped in 15 points and 6 assists. Five Brose Baskets players scored in double figures. Guard Julius Jenkins (187-G-81, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Georgia Southern) produced 22 points and 5 rebounds and guard Bryce Taylor (196-G-86, agency: Priority Sports) added 13 points respectively for the guests. ALBA Berlin’s coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn’t help.
Last season Brose Baskets Bamberg pulled out an exciting and tight 72-70 win getting their third BEKO BBL title after 2005 and 2007. The loss was very bitter for The Deutsche Bank Skyliners after a close four point loss in the 2005 final in Bamberg, this time, it came down to a few seconds between winning and losing.
