Basketball: FC Bayern easily reach the cup quarter-finals
Bayern’s basketball players demonstrate their strength in the cup. In a new edition of last year’s final, Oldenburg has no chance.
Hardest points collector in the cup round of 16 against Oldenburg: Carsen Edwards with 20 points.
Defending champion Bayern Munich reached the quarter-finals of the BBL Cup without much trouble. Bayern won clearly on Sunday in their own hall against EWE Baskets Oldenburg with 101:73 (55:35). In doing so, the Munich team took revenge for the defeat in the league in Oldenburg almost two weeks ago.
Bayern had everything under control at BMW Park from the start and started with a 13-2 run. Although Lower Saxony reduced the score to four points (16:20) in the course of the first quarter, the hosts then pulled away again. Even at halftime, the game was practically decided with Munich leading by 20 points.
Edwards leads Bayern basketball players
Bayern also prevailed against Oldenburg in the final of last season and thus won their only title of the 2022/23 season. This time the hosts’ best thrower was Carsen Edwards with 20 points.
The Bamberg Baskets and Syntainics MBC from Weißenfels also made it into the quarter-finals on Sunday. Rasta Vechta, Telekom Baskets Bonn, Niners Chemnitz and ratiopharm Ulm had previously made it into the top eight.
