Today’s picks from the Albert Schweitzer Tournament

Before returning to Mannheim for the Finals day tomorrow, here are some important facts of the last two days.

  • The Final will be the awaited Greece – Turkey clash. It will be loud and rowdy in the US Sports Arena tomorrow.
  • Nikos Pappas is the absolute favorite for the MVP trophy. The Greek guard went for 39pts and 10rebs today in an overtime win over Australia.
  • Call-up for Maik Zirbes. The German Center, who is playing a very interesting tournament in Mannheim will replace John Whorton in the rotation of TBB Trier. The last one got fired and head coach Yves Defraigne will probably use Zirbes as back-up center right away.
  • Irving Walker was very close to a triple double on Thursday in the spectacular win of the US team over Spain. The tiny PG went for 32pts, 8rebs and 9asts.
  • The places from 9-16 are now attributed: 9th Germany, 10th Croatia, 11th France, 12th Italy, 13th Russia, 14th New Zealand, 15th Israel and 16th Netherlands.
  • The schedule for tomorrow is the following (all times CET): 9h00 Sweden – Spain; 11h Canada – Argentina; 14h USA – Australia and 16h Turkey – Greece.
