Mitteldeutsche BC did not have difficulty in beating their German Bundesliga opponent TSK Würzburg in front of 500 spectators by 107:83. This win paved the way to the conference final which will be played tomorrow at 6 p.m in Debreceni.
TSK Würzburg could keep up with MBC for the first 20 minutes, but the team of Henrik Dettmann did not want to loose against a nominal weaker team after their two defeats in the German league. At halftime, the score was 46:44.
MBS started powerfully into the second half. The Würzburg players showed some weaknesses from the distance and exactly the opposite was expected from the team without a center. Only five out of nineteen shots reached the basket.
The MBC, however, was a lot more successful - ten out of sixteen shots went in. This gave the players the power to significantly win the two last quarters by 28:16 and 33:23.
The final score was 107:83.
