Bayern: Corona cases as extra motivation


Won convincingly away from home and also got a direct comparison: Andrea Trinchieri had every reason to be in a good mood after the 84:77 (42:33) of the FC Bayern basketball team in the EuroLeague at the strong Spanish club Baskonia Vitoria. "It's one of the toughest courts," said the Italian coach.


With nine wins and eleven defeats, Bayern are still in the running for one of the eight playoff places. If Vitoria (7:13) has the same record at the end of the main round, Munich would have the edge. The win could prove very valuable. (Service: EuroLeague Results)

"I've had a lot of games here and there haven't been many wins," said Trinchieri: "The whole team was convincing, we had a stable defense and were very good on offense. A few weeks ago, Baskonia demolished us ." The visitors' top pitchers were Corey Walden, Othello Hunter and Augustine Rubit, each with 17 points. "It's the second half of the season so every game counts. We could use every win," said Hunter.

Trinchieri dedicated the success to the people behind the scenes. "We did it at home for our physio and our team manager who have Corona," said the head coach at MagentaSport: "Sometimes it's like a family. We always travel together, and when someone is ill you are extra motivated.”
