BC Vienna and Swans Gmunden have taken the next step towards the men’s Super League final. Nor did the Vienna UBSC Graz give any chance in Styria with 84:63 thus making it 2:0 in the “Best of Five” series of the semi-finals on Wednesday. The High Austrians also gained this advantage with the 107:90 Oberwart Gunners. Both defeated teams are already under pressure in Saturday’s third games.
The favorite to win the title from Vienna proved his superiority right from the start. After the first quarter there was a 26:8 lead. As a result, the Grazers were at least able to limit the damage, and the defeat could be kept below 113:72 at the start. The Styrion is not expected to be able to bring excitement to the series again on Saturday (5.30pm) in Vienna.
Friedrich with the best career
Gmunden took the lead and was already ahead 45:34 in the first half. With a strong third quarter, Arsenal came in within six points, but the turnaround is no longer up in the air. The guests also got the upper hand at the end because they made fewer mistakes. 82 points from Upper Austria went to Austrian players, and Daniel Friedrich was outstanding with 31 points. With this mark, he also set the best new career path. In front of the home crowd on Saturday (8.15 p.m.), there is now a chance to close the sack early.
