The Fraport Skyliners have maintained their theoretical chance of staying in the Bundesliga.

The Fraport Skyliners have preserved their theoretical chance of staying in the Bundesliga (BBL). The Frankfurt club won 88-69 (50-33) at EWE Baskets Oldenburg on Easter Monday and is now second from last in the table.

However, it is still very unlikely that the 2004 German champions will stay in the league. Only if the Skyliners win their remaining three games, the Löwen Braunschweig remain winless and the Giessen 46ers win a maximum of four of their six remaining games, Frankfurt could still save themselves a non-relegation place through the direct comparison.

Telekom Baskets Bonn extended their lead in the standings in the evening. The West Germans won 82-71 (43-41) against MLP Academics Heidelberg and are four points ahead of FC Bayern München, who have played two games less.
