Three-peat completed: Bamberg wins another BBL championship
After losing game 1 of the quarterfinals-series against Bonn, Bamberg managed to win 9 play-off games in a row! 3-1 against Bonn in the quarterfinals, 3-0 against the Artland Dragons in the semis and 3-0 in the finals against ratiopharm Ulm.
So it’s time to put the broom back in its place and enjoy the sweet taste of success.
The German Hoops crew says: Congratulations to the Brose Baskets Bamberg for winning the 2012 Beko BBL championship!
After becoming the first team since Alba Berlin in 2003 to defend the title last season. The Brose Baskets made history this season as they became the first team ever in german basketball to secure three cup-wins and championship wins in a row. Looking back at the last 20 years in german basketball it is easy to say that there was a Bayer Leverkusen era in the early nineties (7 championships from 1990-1996) that was followed by Alba Berlin’s dominance (7 championships from 1997-2003). Chris Fleming’s Brose Baskets are not far from that status now with three consecutive championships.
