Play-off teams move closer together

In the men’s National 2, game day 17 was on the schedule on Saturday evening.

Behind 31 points and 12 rebounds by Tylik Evans, AS Zolwer was able to grab a 91:73 road victory in the capital against Racing Luxembourg, the hosts only had one professional player available in this game. The guests had a strong start (28:12 first quarter) and knocked down 12 three pointers to secure this victory which allows them to draw even in the standings with the opponent.

League leader US Heffingen won a road game in Monnerich against BC Mess, the final score was 78:56 in favor of the guests. Jonathan Janssen had a big double double with 33 points and 21 rebounds.

Avanti Mondorf grabs a 76:62 victory on the road in Schieren. Jake Ross, former player of the club, returned to Mondorf as the team of coach Bob Adam will play with 3 professional players from now on. Mondorf is currently 6th in the league standings with an 8:7 record and the addition of Ross clearly shows the goals of the club are high for the upcoming play-offs and sends a message to the opponents. Mondorf missed the promotion the last 2 years while playing in the promotion-series in both seasons.

Black Star Mersch cruised to an easy 89:61 victory against the winless team Telstar Hesperange. Mersch is the first team to finish the regular season, the team has won 11 straight games!

With one game day remaining in the regular season, the teams from places 3-6 move closer together with the results from game day 17. The 6 play-off teams are set since last week and the play-offs should become very intresting in the second league.
