Shorthorns: revenge successful, direct comparison won

Ts herzogenaurach’s bavarian league basketball team starts the second half of the season with an important victory: with a convincing 58-38 win at post-sv nuremberg, which they had just lost to shortly before christmas, the shorthorns oust their opponents from third place thanks to the direct comparison they have won. The league remains tight, with only one defeat separating the top quartet. "It’s nice that we won so clearly and can thus further establish ourselves in the top group", said markus schonmuller, coach of tsh. "It is particularly pleasing that we have delivered a very balanced team performance today and can thus play our greatest trump card of having a deep and balanced team better and better."

Post-sv nuremberg – ts herzogenaurach 38:58

At the beginning, however, it did not look quite so good for the aurach city girls. Nothing worked, even simple basket shots were missed and after four minutes it was 6:2 for the hosts. You could tell that the women from herzogenaurach wanted it badly, but the resulting tension led to even more mistakes. What was positive was that the shorthorns defended extremely well. After the first quarter it was 12:6 for the hosts.

But schonmuller must have found the right words, because in the second section his team now acted much more calmly and efficiently. Barbara hartz and raluca chioran took over the game organization and scoring in personal union and led tsh closer piece by piece. In the defense, the defensive specialists rebecca simon and julia volk did a great job and won a lot of balls, which allowed the aurach city girls to score easy points in the fast break. The shorthorns took the lead two minutes before the half-time break.

At the back regine brox and lisa aumeier dominated the zone and didn’t allow any easy baskets, which meant that the nurnberg girls could hardly score anymore. In front jana-sophie distler played cat and mouse with her opponents and brought the tsh more and more in front. Before the final period the shorthorns already led 38:23.

After the post scored only eleven points in addition in section 2 and 3 together, they now came back into the game better. Och the shorthorns controlled the game on all levels. Two minutes before the end, rebecca simon was hit by a rebound and dislocated her shoulder. How long she will be out is still unclear. Finally won the herzogenauracherinnen also deserved in this height with 58:38. "We have now come together well, we know what we have to do when and where, and we are going into the coming parties full of confidence.", said schonmuller.
