The top four tournament for the German basketball cup planned for Saturday and Sunday has been postponed just under an hour before the start. After positive corona tests at the BG Göttingen, the second semi-final against defending champion Alba Berlin on Saturday evening was canceled due to a quarantine order from the Munich health department. Göttingen then submitted an application to relocate the game. The Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) agreed to this. A new date in the tight game calendar should now be announced as soon as possible.
On Saturday afternoon, hosts Bayern Munich and Ratiopharm Ulm should play in the first semifinals for a place in the finals scheduled for Sunday. The bus with the Bayern team had already arrived, and the players were in the hall. To their surprise, the official cancellation of the event followed just 60 minutes before the scheduled start.
