The American was initially given an unsportsmanlike foul in the 80:89 draw against Bayern Munich shortly before the end of the game after his foul against Sylvain Francisco (26).

After the referees watched the Munich team’s quick attack, which was illegally stopped by Lansdowne, on video again, they upgraded the offense to a disqualifying foul due to intentional tripping.

The veteran had to leave the parquet and the interior of the hall. Four seconds later the final siren sounded.

“We were lucky. The BBL left it with a fine for DeAndre and waived a game ban,” explained Niners press spokesman Matthias Pattloch to TAG24.

The Chemnitz team, who lost both duels with Ulm in the BBL first half of the season and in the cup quarter-finals, can compete on Saturday in the Chemnitz trade fair with a full band. If you want to be there live, you should hurry up. As Pattloch revealed, there are only a few tickets left.

After the top game in Munich on February 13th, coach Rodrigo Pastore (51) sent his boys on vacation for a few days. Since last week, preparations for the hot month of March have been in full swing.

In addition to their five BBL games, including at home against Alba Berlin on March 24th, the Niners will fight against Casademont Zaragoza from Spain on March 6th and 13th for a place in the Europe Cup semi-finals. The second leg takes place in Chemnitz. Advance ticket sales are ongoing.

Kaza Kajami-Keane (30) has not yet returned to Chemnitz. The pointguard played two qualifying games for the Americas Cup against Nicaragua with the Canadian national team.

Pattloch: “We expect Kaza back during Thursday.”
