Since joining the DBBL in 2008, the Wohnbau Angels, who proudly sport the Nörtlingen city skyline on their kits, have reached the playoffs multiple times. Their biggest achievement came in the 2010-2011 season, when they finished second in the German Cup tournament. One thing is for sure: The team has even bigger plans for the future. For this interview, we spoke with Aleksandra Racic. The 1.81 m (5'9'') shooting guard from Serbia has been playing for the Angels since January 2016. Before that, she played in Serbia, Tunisia and Cyprus. In Tunisia she won the Tunisian Supercup and finished third in the African Championscup.

How often do you practice and what does your training look like?

We practice twice a day. Ballhandling and shooting in the morning and team practice at night. In addition to that, we go to the gym twice a week.

Does your team have any rituals?

We have our teamhustle before each game. We move back and forth eight times and psyche ourselves up with the city slogan of Nördlingen - „So, G'sell, so!“.

How do you get motivated before a game?

We push each other during practice and want to win every game. When your team gets underestimated, your greatest motivation is proving your opponents wrong.

How do you celebrate a victory?

After the game we slap hands with our fans in the arena. Later at night we then celebrate as a team.

What does owayo mean to you?

owayo has been our partner since 2008 and we are proud to have them by our side. The quality is excellent. We have gone through good and bad times together.

What do you like most about your jerseys?

The jerseys are very comfortable. We love our design with the Nördlingen skyline. What makes the jerseys even more special for us is that each one of us also has the flag of their home country on their jersey.
