U16 boys finish the European Championship at the 20th place
22 août 2017

U16 National Team arrived safe yesterday evening in Luxembourg after a fair participation in the European Championship in Bulgaria .
Ranked 20 out of 24 national teams , our squad could have reached a better result without the injuries of both Sam WOLTER and Chidi DENOVAN in the first two games of the tournament.
The lack of experience of most players, tiredness (1 game per day) and limited rotations were the constraints to make a better result. The last games (vs Denmark or Kosovo) were very close and could have gone in either direction. Luxembourg could have won 2 or 3 games more, but the boys still showed a respectable performance at times and always played with good attitude.
In general, it was a great experience for all players, especially the two young players DIEDRICH Jonathan and CEMAN Dino who were the youngest players in the tournament and can still participate at the U16 Men European Championship for at least one year.
The future belongs to this group of players who need to keep working hard and focus more to reach better rankings in the next seasons.


Luxembourg lost against Denmark
19 août 2017

An unexpected loss for our U16 national team against Denmark. 19 turnovers, easy missed lay ups and only 16 made free throws out of 32 were the main elements that explain our defeat last night.

Our boys weren't focused enough to come up with the win, especially when we were up by 8 points in the end of the first quarter.

Our boys didn't take advantage of the huge number of the free throws and the fouls made by the opponent, we missed the occasion to increase the gap. The opponent was patient in offense, using only penetrations and hitting some three point shots. The opponent managed to get back and take the lead after a huge empty passage from our side (15-0). In that time, our team missed gave up many open lay ups. Furthermore, the 3rd foul of Gil RECH and Davy DAVID didn't help coach BASIC to find a solution to stop the offense of the opponent who was leading with 35 to 30 at halftime.

The third and fourth quarters were resembling each other. Our squad didn´t manage to come back as we had trouble to score on the one side (missed free throws) and to stop the offense of Denmark on the other side. Our coaching staff tried to change the defense many times, but Luxembourg didn’t manage to take the lead. So finally Demark won the game with 75 to 68.

Our national team will play their last game for the 19th place this afternoon against Kosovo at 15 o'clock (Luxembourgish time).

U16 Boys with their first win against Slovak Republic
18 août 2017

Slovak Republic 54-59 Luxembourg

A deserved win last night for our squad after a close game against the Slovak Republic National Team.

The 1st quarter was dominated by the opponent who started the game with full court man to man defence and kept the lead from the beginning till the end of the quarter (18-15). Our squad had difficulties to enter the game directly, our rhythm was slow and our defence was not aggressive enough to stop the Slovak offense.

In the second quarter our boys organized their lines in defence and offense and got some offensive rebounds that allowed us to score out of second chances. Our boys could tie the score at several occasions due to the good communication in defence and the quick transition in offense (18-18 ,21-21,23-23 then 25-25). Noe MELCHIOR and Malcolm KREPS managed to make a good execution of the set plays which helped our squad to create open spaces and take the lead by 5 points. Unfortunately, in the last two minutes, the opponent took advantage of the lack of concentration of our boys and succeeded to tie the score at the end of the first half (34-34) after a lucky 3 points shot with the buzzer.

In the second half, our guys were so determined to win this game, they took the lead from the beginning till the end of the third quarter due to an aggressive defence that made our opponent feel uncomfortable in offense. Felix VLAMINCK succeeded to hit 2 three points in a row, while Davy DAVID and Gil RECH assured all defensive rebounds. As a consequence, the gap increased to 12 points (34-46), but the lead was cut to 9 points at the end of this quarter.

The last quarter was as close as in the Macedonian game. The Slovakian team managed to come back in the game (50-53), as we missed many free throws and hesitated to attack their basket. Team effort in defence (aggressively and communication) plus the mental strength of our guys pushed us to a deserved win (54-59.

The will to win of the Luxembourgish Team was decisive in this game. A very important win for our boys who were struggling a bit in the previous games due to the lack of rotations after the injuries of Sam WOLTER and Chidi DELHOMMAIS.

U16 Men come up short against Macedonia
17 août 2017

Luxembourg 71-75 Macedonia

Last game in the group D could have been a win, if our guys could manage to keep the ball longer in offense and make the opponent run after the ball. The game was decisive as three teams were fighting for the 4th place in the group.

The importance of this game made our squad start the 1st quarter with a high intensity in defence and run successful fast breaks, which allowed us to lead by 6 points (8-2). Our guys imposed their own rhythm and pushed the opponent to make a lot of fouls. Unfortunately, we didn't take advantage of free throws to increase the gap. So, the Macedonian team managed to get back, equalized then took the lead with 4 points (14-18), but the good defence and the rebounds of Davy David allowed us to end this quarter with a light lead at the sore of 19-18.

In the second quarter, our squad managed to hit 2 three points shots in a row. In defence, we played a 2-3 Zone to close the middle and to force the opponent to shoot. This strategy allowed our guys to increase the gap to 20 points within 5 minutes (42-22). However, missed free throws (0/7) as well as the lack of experience of our players that resulted in bad decisions or turnovers in offense allowed Macedonia to cut the deficit to 13 points at halftime (45-32)

In the 3rd quarter, Luxembourg had again the occasion to increase the gap. However, the lead was cut to 6 due to missed easy lay ups and turnovers. Luxembourg finished the quarter strongly with some good variations in offense (penetrations and 3 points shot) and the lead was back up to 10 points.

In the last quarter, our boys knew an empty passage because of tiredness and their lack of experience (missed easy lay ups, turnovers, no box out and hesitation to attack the basket). The opponent took advantage and equalized at the score of 65-65. Macedonia took the lead two minutes before the end and finally won with 71-75.

A game that could be a win for our boys who fought hard, but unfortunately they didn't succeed to achieve it .

U16 Boys lose against Kosovo
13 août 2017

Both teams were waiting for this game to realize the first win in the tournament.

The beginning was difficult for our squad as the Kosovo national team got the lead 0-6 within 3 minutes. Coach Basic took a time out and changed the defence which allowed our boys to steal many balls and transform it into successful fast breaks. Our squad could equalize at 11-11 and took the lead by 6 points (17-11) by the end of this quarter. The gap could have been bigger if we would have made our free throws.

In the second quarter, our boys forgot to box out and our opponent could score many easy points out of offensive rebounds. Furthermore, Kosovo got many free throws due to the high number of fouls committed by our player in defence. Still Luxembourg could keep the lead at first due to some interceptions (17-15). However, free throws allowed the team of Kosovo to get back in the game and to take the lead by 4 points at halftime (25-29).

In the 3rd quarter, Kosovo team started with a high aggressive defence and increased the gap to 10 points (35-25).  But our boys found a way back and equalized again at 39-39 after some good defensive work and fast breaks. However, the easy lay-up missed (1vs 0 situation) and the 5th fouls of both Dino CEMAN and Gil RECH didn't help our coaching staff to find the balance on the court and for the 3rd game rotation was so difficult. The tall players of Kosovo succeeded to get 20 offensive rebounds, they scored 19 points out a of second chances and 25 free throws from a total of 45. These details made the difference in the game as the opponent managed to win their first game by 10 points (51-61).

U16 Boys lose against Portugal
12 août 2017

Luxembourg 55 - 85 Portugal 

For the second time, our U16 national team fails to keep the lead of the beginning of the game. The two teams started the game with a full court man to man defence. Even though Sam Wolter couldn´t play due to an injury from the first game, our squad was very motivated for this game, as the opponent had the same athletic, technical and height characteristics and could also take the lead for the first eight minutes (14-8). However, the 3rd foul of Davy Rocha (our tall center) obliged Coach Basic to substitute it. Unfortunately, Chidi got injured only shortly after his entrance on the court (ankle), which made the rotations even more difficult. Portugal git thus back in the game and took the lead at the end of the first quarter (14-17).

Our guys changed the defence into a 2-3 Zone defence to push the opponent to take shots instead of penetrating but unfortunately Portugal hit many shots from the high post. Furthermore, the4th foul of Davy made our mission even more difficult. Even though Luxembourg played well in offense, the gap could not be decreased and the Portuguese team goes to halftime with a lead of 11 points.

In the 3rd quarter, we went back to an aggressive man to man defence. With three consecutive three points shots, Luxembourg could reduce the gap to 7 points. However, our U16 boys didn’t manage to close the gap due to a lack of concentration and too many turnovers. Portugal got too many easy points out of fast breaks and offensive rebounds.

The efforts of Melchior and Kreps wasn't enough to get back in the game, as Portugal continued to play aggressive and scored out of fast breaks till the end. The game ended with a gap of 30 points (55-85)

U16 Men lose their first game at the European Championship
11 août 2017

The first game was a hard task for our national team as our opponent owns tall, strong and athletic players.

The beginning of the game was equalized, both teams played an aggressive man to man defence, which makes the mission of scoring very hard. The 2-3 Zone Defence combined with successful penetration and shooting allowed us to take a lead of 8 points in the first quarter. However, the injury of Sam Wolter put the coach Basic in a bad situation. The guards had difficulties against the high pressure of the British defence (due to the absence of rotations), but our young players managed to end the first quarter leading by 5 points (13-18).

In the second quarter, our squad had difficulties in offense, hesitation made us lose too many balls. The British team took advantages of the turnovers and scored 4 times in a row from the 3 points line to increase the gap to 13 points at halftime (33-20).

The last two quarters were similar to the second one, our opponent kept scoring out of fast breaks and behind the 3 points line while we were struggling in front of their defence. Hesitation in offense and boxing out in defence were our weak points that didn’t allow us to find a way back in the game.

The end score 77-43 doesn´t reflect our players’ efforts, especially in defence.

Vorbereitung auf die Europameisterschaft
03 août 2017

Zum Abschluss ihrer Vorbereitung auf die Europameisterschaft 2017 in Sofia (08.08.2017-20.08.2017), verbrachten die Jungs der Altersklasse U16M vom 31.07.2017 bis 03.08.2017 ein Trainingslager in der zypriotischen Hauptstadt in Nikosia.

Das Trainingslager wurde hauptsächlich angesetzt um unter Wettkampfbedingungen die bevorstehende EM zu simulieren. Neben dem Feld galt es als Mannschaft zusammen zu wachsen, und sich zwischenmenschlich zu entwickeln, um sich später als Team den sportlichen Herausforderungen stellen zu können. Die Schwerpunkte im Trainingsplan sahen vor, die sowohl individuellen als auch mannschaftlich-taktischen Bewegungsabläufe zu optimieren und zu verinnerlichen.

Neben den Trainingseinheiten, welche jeweils morgens stattfanden, bestritt die luxemburgische Mannschaft ausserdem 2 Trainingsspiele gegen ihre Altersgenossen aus Zypern. In der ersten Begegnung gelang es den "roud Léiwen" aus Luxemburg leider nur das erste Viertel erfolgreich zu bestreiten. Nach 10 Minuten führten sie mit 17-20. Danach mussten sie sich der sehr aggressiv agierenden Mannschaft aus Zypern mehr und mehr geschlagen geben, und am Ende gab es dann auch eine, aufgrund der schlechten Leistung, verdient hohe Niederlage.

Nach einer erneuten Trainingseinheit am Morgen stand am dritten Tag das zweite Spiel an. Die Luxemburger Spieler hatten sich fest vorgenommen ihre schwache Leistung vom Vorabend vergessen zu lassen, und starteten mit einem positiven Lauf ins Spiel (0-6). Es war der Auftakt zu einem sehr aggressiv und physisch geführten Spiel, bei dem die luxemburgische Mannschaft früh mit Fehlern zu kämpfen hatte, und die Inselaner immer an der Grenze des Erlaubten agierten. Besonders im Rebound kauften die Zyprioten den Luxemburgern ein ums andere Mal den Schneid ab, und kamen zu zweiten oder dritten Chancen im Angriff. Zur Hälfte noch in Führung liegend (30-36) reichte ein schlechtes drittes Viertel um am Ende das Spielfeld doch noch als Verlierer verlassen zu müssen (68-60), obwohl die 3 anderen Viertel gewonnen werden konnten. Für die Spieler aus dem Grossherzogtum war der Trip nach Zypern ein wichtiger Schritt auf dem Weg zur EM.

So mussten sie zum Beispiel auf harte Weise lernen, dass der Erfolg nur über eine aufopferungsvolle Defensive der gesamten Mannschaft führen kann. Aggressive, variable Defense gepaart mit Mut, Selbstvertrauen, Mannschaftsgeist und Disziplin sind die Eckpfeiler unseres Spiels. Dass wir uns den Respekt der Gegner schwer erarbeiten müssen, sollte demnach klar geworden sein. Nicht weniger als 54 Fehler standen am Ende des Spiels an der Anzeigetafel. Nach der Rückreise am Donnerstag gilt es sich schnellstmöglich zu erholen, stehen doch am Samstag, Sonntag und Montag noch 4 weitere Trainings an, bevor die Mannschaft der U16M zur EM nach Sofia aufbricht.
