EWE Oldenburg Baskets German Championship Runner-Up 2017
Even a playoff appearance was not guaranteed - but no one expected the EWE Oldenburg Baskets to make it to the German Championship finals. The outsiders ended the regular season with a positive record and entered the playoffs with a few tricks up their sleeve. The first of which came as an unexpected win against the top seeded Ulm in the semi-finals, who were on a 25 game winning streak. Despite the odds, the Oldenburg Baskets outplayed Ulm and marched into the finals to face the Brose Bamberg. Rickey Paulding proved himself as the team playmaker, having been with the EWE Baskets for over ten years. However, in the end, their best wasn't enough. In the third match, Bamberg secured their 9th championship title against the EWE Baskets 76 to 58. The EWE Oldenburg Baskets hung their heads and thanked their 200 away fans for having traveled to support them. But their disappointment in losing quickly faded and was replaced with a sense of achievement and wonder for having made it to the playoff finals. What a basketball season!
