The Fraport Skyliners have been relegated from the Basketball Bundesliga. This is the first relegation for the former champions.

The first relegation of the former champions Fraport Skyliners from the Basketball Bundesliga is sealed – although the Hessians were not in action on Wednesday.

Because the Löwen Braunschweig won 82:66 (49:41) at the Gießen 46ers, Frankfurt can no longer reach the saving shore with only three games remaining. Giessen’s chances of staying in the league have also been reduced to a minimum.

Meanwhile, the Niners Chemnitz took the next step towards the play-offs. The Saxons defeated s.Oliver Würzburg 88:82 (38:43) and moved up to fifth place in the table.

In Giessen, David Krämer (14), Owen Klassen (13) and Nicholas Tischler (11) were the most successful scorers for Braunschweig, who secured their place in the league with the victory. Kendale McCullum stood out for the 46ers with 19 points, but he could not prevent another defeat.
