Basketball players from TG Neuss start the season in Göttingen

The Second Basketball Bundesliga will start playing earlier than last season. In the cup, the Tigers receive the south representative Würzburg.

(sit) The TG Neuss women’s basketball team will start the 2022/2023 second division season on Sunday, September 25th (4 p.m. kick-off). The game at medical instinct Veilchen BG 74 Göttingen, which has been relegated to the first division, is then on the agenda. A week later, the Tigers are at work twice within 48 hours in their local Elmar Frings sports hall on Bergheimer Straße: on Saturday, October 1 (5:30 p.m.) they face the AVIDES Hurricanes from Rotenburg, on Monday, October 3 October (“Day of German Unity”) the protégés of trainer Rufin Kendall meet the newly promoted Herner TC II (5.30 p.m.).

With the game at the ChemCats Chemnitz, the women from Neuss are going into the Christmas break on December 10th. It only continues on January 7, 2023 with the match in front of the home crowd against the Bender Baskets Grünberg. The regular season ends on March 25 with the AVIDES Hurricanes encounter. After the end of the main round, the top eight teams in the play-offs determine the sporting promoted team. The bottom of the table are relegated immediately. The teams ranked ninth through eleven will determine two further relegations in the play-downs. Important: Since not all main round games could be played in the 2021/2022 season due to corona, the current game plan contains so-called reserve game days for catch-up games at regular intervals.

The Tigers are already challenged before the first league match day. In the first cup round come on 17./18. September from the southern group of the 2nd league the QOOL Sharks Würzburg to the Rhine. Should the TG prevail, it would be at home on October 9th against the Rutronik Stars Keltern, German champions of the years 2018 and 2021.
