Life Now for Mike Scott - Feb 22, 2011
follow us on |
Hello Eurobasket! As the BG Goettingen Violets and I travel to France in our quest for Eurocup advancement I would like to share a little bit of LIFE NOW for Mike Scott (203-F-86, college: Kent St.). Very briefly, I grew up in inner city Indianapolis and graduated from Kent State University making two NCAA appearances during my four collegiate years. My first professional season began in 2008 with Trabzonspor, a 2nd division team located in Turkey on the coast of the Black Sea. Kormend, Hungary was the next stop for this young guy. The city was very small, not even sure I should call it a city. Yet, it had all I needed to focus on myself and ball.
Currently, I am happily in Germany on a team that is, at this moment, somewhat underachieving in the BBL, I feel. Our team is stacked from top to bottom. The talent is comparable to the top teams in the league but occasionally we do not play as such. Its mid-season and we are mid-pack still optimistically searching to make a run to sustain a spot in the playoffs. I truly believe in our team and I have no doubt that we will make it happen for ourselves and the faithful folks of BG Goettingen. In contrast, I think many people believe we have overachieved in the Eurocup circuit. 3-1 in a group of powerhouses! We cruised through the first round and are in great position to get to the third! We will see what happens.
Anyway, enough about basketball but then again this is EuroBASKET so maybe that is why you are here in the first place. Regardless, bare with me because this is MY BLOG.
Germany! I never thought I would see so many well trained dogs! I mean these dogs are smarter than some humans I know. I have lost count of how many times I have walked into a grocery store or restaurant and saw a dog sit outside of the door quietly and calmly waiting for its owner to reappear from the vicinity. Impressive. This may seem normal for Europeans but back home the moment you let a dog off its leash, you might as well go to the dog pound a few days later to see if it was caught.
This is completely off subject but did I mention I am starving right now? We played last night at home in our factory stadium (its literally a factory with a portable court inside. Oddly enough its the best place I have ever played) and are on the road at 6:30 a.m. the next morning to catch a flight from Hannover which is about 1 hour from our home city. Exhausting? Ummm, you have no idea! Or maybe you do, I dont know.
Back to the topic of Germany. So, this is somewhat of a funny story. I was driving on the autobahn to Frankfurt airport a few days ago and reached some pretty decent speeds. Nothing reckless but I was making good time. Navigating through the city, you would probably never hit 6th gear. Well on the highway; different story. So I am learning on-the-go the timing of shifts in the higher gears. A few times I grinded out the transmission and the car revved and herky jerked. [Dont tell management. Please & Thank You]
So as I make this more and more difficult for myself and become increasingly frustrated with every kilometer I drive, I finally get it down to a decent rhythm. After more whip flashes and smoky fumes I realize the darn car tells me when to shift up and down! A HUGE GREEN ARROW POINTS EITHER UP OR DOWN WITH THE WORDS UP AND DOWN in bold white letters just in case the fluorescent arrows are not enough! This is all happening right in front of my face on the dashboard. I have had this car about..well...THE WHOLE SEASON and never got the memo! Smart, right? No, not at all.
I guess these German dogs are smarter than me, too. Well at least they see better.
'We cannot see the wind, but we can see the evidences of the wind'...Faith

| Margret Skuballa selected the top German playing abroad in last week's games- Nov.13, 2014 (by Eurobasket Center)|
Here is the weekly review of the top performing German players, who play currently abroad. This week's number one is an international small forward Margret Skuballa (186-87), who plays in the French LFB. She could not help Nantes Reze (2-4) in their last game. Despite Skuballa's good performance Nantes Reze was badly defeated 67-50 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#3) Flammes Carolo.
Here is the weekly review of the top performing German players, who play currently abroad.
#1. This week's number one is an international small forward Margret Skuballa (186-87, currently plays in France), who plays in the French LFB. She could not help Nantes Reze (2-4) in their last game. Despite Skuballa's good performance Nantes Reze was badly defeated 67-50 on the road by the much higher-ranked (#3) Flammes Carolo.
She was the top scorer with 14 points in 36 minutes on the court.
But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen.
It's Skuballa's first year with the team.
This season Skuballa averages: 6.7ppg, 4.2rpg, 1.2apg, 2FGP: 47.6%, 3FGP: 25.0% and FT: 83.3% in the six games she played so far.

Baer scored 8 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.

But the season just started, so everything may happen.
It's Baer's first year with the team.
Her overall stats this season are: 6.0ppg, 4.0rpg, 3.0apg, 2.0spg, 2FGP: 35.7%.
Baer is in the roster of the German senior national team.
#3. The German player who performed third best last week abroad was an international power forward Katharina Fikiel (194-87, currently plays in Euroleague) is a teammate of previously mentioned Romy Baer and both played together in the last Euroleague game.
Fikiel managed to help Good Angels Kosice to win against the seventh-ranked Galatasaray (0-2) 68-67.
She scored only 2 points. It was his first game for Good Angels this season.
It's Fikiel's first year with the team.
Fikiel has a dual citizenship: Polish and German.
Ex-BG 74 Gottingen player is also a member of the German senior national team.
#4. Center Nadine Grieb (184-87, currently plays in Luxembourg), who plays in the Luxembourg Total League was not able to help AB Contern (3-4) in their last game. Despite her very good performance AB Contern lost 68-79 at home to the higher-ranked (#3) Musel Pikes.
Grieb had a double-double by scoring 17 points and getting 10 rebounds. She also added and 3 steals in 40 minutes.
Grieb is currently sixth on the list of top scorers and also on the list of best rebounders (sixth place).
She has individually a very good year with high stats. Grieb averages: 19.0ppg, 12.3rpg, 3.7apg and 2.5spg in the six games.
She used to play for the German U20 national team
back in 2007.
One more player who has never been selected to any of national teams, but has German passport:
#1. Annika Klein (190-F-92, currently plays in Italy) led Virtus Cagliari to a victory against the fourth-ranked Astro Cagliari (3-3) 70-58 in a derby game in the Italian Serie A2 (12th division) on Thursday night.
She had a double-double by scoring 13 points and getting 14 rebounds in 32 minutes.
A.T.S. Energia Virtus Cagliari (2-4) is placed seventh in Group B.
It was her team's first victory after four consecutive loses.
It's Klein's first season with the team.
Klein has relatively good stats this year: 11.3ppg, 9.2rpg and 1.3spg in the six games she played so far.
