Germany’ Ratiopharm Ulm is definitely making waves this 2016-17 season. The club is sporting a perfect 26-0 record in the domestic German EasyCredit BBL. Ratiopharm Ulm has never won a German League championship. Such an aspiration could come into fruition if this impressive regular season run carries over into the post-season.
The usual suspects, ALBA Berlin, FC Bayern Muenchen, or Brose Baskets Bamberg have had a tough time holding up a candle to Ratiopharm’s success so far.
In their most recent victory, Ratiopharm Ulm secured their 26th victory of the season over no less than Brose Baskets Bamberg, which currently sits in second place with a 23-3 record.
Brose Baskets Bamberg 79, Ratiopharm Ulm 84
Ratiopharm was dominant on the glass. They outrebounded Bamberg 35-28. Another big factor in the win was the fact that the league-leading club shot an insane 10-of-20 shots from beyond the three-point arc.
Raymar Morgan exploded for 24 points and nine rebounds. Chris Babb accounted for five of the team’s shots from downtown, en route to his 19 points. Da’Sean Butler was a beast in the paint as he collected 11 rebounds for Ratiopharm Ulm.
Darius Miller and Nicolo Melli paced Brose Baskets Bamberg with 17 points each.
