Germany v France - Full Game - Round of 16 - FIBA EuroBasket 2017

Then again there are two other BBL identity figures and legends in the making with Mr Skyliner lifer Quantez Robertson of Frankfurt and Mr Oldenburg Rickey Paulding who combined are in their 22nd season in Germany and combined have racked up three titles and also have been combined on the floor in Europe in games prior to this season.

One also can't forget German Per Guenther who could have left ratiopharm Ulm years ago for more lucrative offers, but remained where the heart wanted to be.

But who will be the future players in the easyCredit players that will have that amazing role model work ethic and discipline of a Derrick Allen and just keep playing seemingly forever and share that passion and loyalty to remain with just one team and not change teams as often as a Tom Brady has thrown to different targets which stands at 71 receivers.

Ok so being with one team for so far only three seasons is nothing special as one could count more than a handful of guys who have been there that long and heck there was even Mike Morrison who played four years in Frankfurt and surely would have loved to have remained longer, but that B word always gets in the way called business.

Davidson his first three years have been very special there and with the continued success of the club he might just stick around for a longer period of time.

Before getting to the basketball career of De'Mon Brooks one has to take a look at how much the player and the club's concept Hero's Of Tomorrow which came to life in the are linked.

One can best describe the team's concept Hero's Of Tomorrow as one where the club is always looking forward combined with establishing a competitive youth program coupled with having a farm team.

It is a young organization that always wants to make the next step in all areas of the organization from the office to the court.

Obviously the farm team fits well with the new concept Hero's Of Tomorrow in that it wants to continue to make strides each season in hopes of competing in the pro B one day and their youth programs JBBL U and NBBL U have made good leaps in the last two years.

Another example where the club's Hero's Of Tomorrow theme has worked well is with their American players from the last two seasons.

Three of the four young players that came to the club had only had one year of experience while Trey Lewis had been a rookie.

These four players are looking to make the next step having had that Hero's of Tomorrow experience. So where does Demon Brooks fit into the equation?

Well in a sense he is the perfect role model and mentor for his teammates. Brooks is a 26 year old cm forward that was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but grew up in Huntersville.

After a stellar high school career at Hopewell where he averaged double double double stats in points and rebounds there, he then went to Davidson NCAA which was just around the corner from home.

Tournament in and and both times was awarded with the MVP. Both times they were invited to the March Madness, but both times weren't rewarded with a win, but lost by seven points to Louisville and current Alba Berlin guard Peyton Siva and to Marquette which showcased future BBL players with Trent Lockett and Chris Otule.

He had a solid freshman season averaging 9. The American knows that his consistency in school and countless opportunities that he has become as a professional go back to one guy his head coach in school with Bob Mckillop.

He is the reason why I am here today. From the time I stepped foot on Davidson he prepared me for this journey on and off the court.

One of the many lessons that stays with me is with freedom comes from responsibility. This is one lesson, especially playing professional basketball in Europe, that is very important for a player to abide if you want to have a long promising career', stressed De'Mon Brooks.

In his senior season the American averaged He scored in double figures in 22 of 24 games including three 28 point games against Wofford, Elon and Samford.

Not only was head coach Mckillop an important mentor for him, but also teammate Jake Cohen who has played many years in the Euroleague with Maccabi Fox Tel-Aviv Israel-Winner League as their day to day battles in practice for three years really boosted his game and carried over into the pro's.

We have been through a lot and he is one of the reasons why I am as good as I am today. We had some battles in practice and we pushed one another every day.

When you have two great talents battling every day for 3 years its only right that it will show down the road.

I have witnessed Jake go for 28 points in a half. He is truly one of the best to come out of Davidson for sure.

I am just honored to be one of his teammates and have played along side him', added De'Mon Brooks. It wouldn't be normal to have been at Davidson and not have gotten the dose of Steph Curry stories.

But my personal favorite story about Steph is during the NBA lock out and he came back to Davidson to finish his classes. He is the best player I have ever seen personally, but with that he is not cocky or arrogant.

He is a genuine person and the way he carries himself is like no other. That what stands out most about him to me.

Not what he does on court', said De'Mon Brooks. I had the luxury to play against many top players in my career.

I would say the one that stood out the most to me was Kelly Olynyk and Thomas Robinson. Those two players during their college years were outstanding players.

I think they were the toughest to me. However, Parker is somewhere on the list', warned De'Mon Brooks. Right away in his rookie season, he was on the go playing in Italy and Israel.

It wasn't most likely what he had expected as he came overseas to split time with two teams, but in the end was thankful for the experience because it was a learning experience that helped his path forward the last years.

I had a lot of ups and downs and had to learn a lot of things from the fly. Additionally being away from home also made it difficult to cope with the adjustment to playing in Europe.

However, I am thankful for that year because it prepared me for a lot of things that many players have never experienced. Those experiences have given me a new found respect for playing basketball overseas.

Personally, it is very difficult to single out one thing as a wake call. In his second professional season he returned to Italy and this time played with Orsi Derthona Basket Tortona Italy-Serie A2 playing 39 games averaging His consistency from his Davidson NCAA days broke through again as he scored in double figures in 36 of 39 games.

The stretch run of the season turned out to be exciting as he won a five game playoff series and lost a five game playoff series after being down , he fought back to win two, but weren't rewarded in game five for the comeback losing After two seasons in Italy, Brooks who compares his game to a Draymond Greene was ready for a new challenge in season three and decided to come to Germany and joined medi Bayreuth.

The decision to come to Bayreuth wasn't difficult for the North Carolina native as he quickly felt comfortable in the city and he bonded with new coach Raoul Korner quickly.

With the coaching staff and the people here creating such a positive environment it was an easy choice for me. What I like about Coach Korner is that he really cares for everyone in his program and his attention to detail.

There is no stone left unturned, but at the same time he knows how to communicate with his players to get the best out of us. To me he is a players coach and those are the type to create a winning environment', warned De'Mon Brooks.

In his first season with the German club he averaged His two biggest games was scoring 20 points in a huge home win against top German team Alba Berlin and netting 23 points in the game three win against the EWE Baskets Oldenburg.

Despite medi Bayreuth losing in the playoffs against the EWE Baskets, it was a season for the ages for the club as it had reached the playoffs for the first time since the mid 90's.

Near the end of the season the American also knew that the key to the success was coach Korber and the characters of his teammates. He gave us a lot of freedom on the court, however with that freedom comes responsibility as he holds everyone accountable.

I think that balance has made a huge impact on our team's chemistry and has led to our results. One thing special about this team that we are all good guys that really get along with one another.

But in practice you would think we hate one another because everyone hates to lose. That competitiveness in practice has been a major key to our success as a team because by the time the games come around we know what to expect of one another', warned De'Mon Brooks.

However the club wasn't as successful as the season before where it finished in fourth place finishing in sixth place, but still reaching the playoffs for s second consecutive season which was seen as a big success.

They also played in their first international cup since playing the Korac Cup in playing the Basketball Champions League reaching the quarterfinals, but losing to German team MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg.

Ludwigsburg became their real sore spot in that they just couldn't buy a victory. They were swept in the regular season losing one game by 31 points and scoring only 47 points and then were also swept in the playoffs.

Brook's stats were down a bit from his first season, but overall he was still one of the club's most consistent performers averaging His success on the court with his game is credited to him being a player not just being in one area, but helping out all over the floor.

I am very mobile at the 4 position and I can do a variety of things. But I think my bread and butter is just playing inside and just taking what the defense gives me.

If that is scoring the ball or kicking it out to a teammate', warned De'Mon Brooks. As the playoffs in the BBL were in full swing in May , Medi Bayreuth made the announcement on May 18th that Brooks would return for a third season.

One got the impression quickly from head coach Raoul Korner that it was vital for the club to hold him after hearing his comments. Korner is more than sure that Brooks is a very important building block for the club with his play on the court and his character and his energy simply infects everyone.

This season medi Bayreuth have started slower than the last two seasons going in the Basketball Champions League and in the BBL are at Despite more scoring power than in his first two seasons, he has started off with a bang averaging 12,8ppg and 6,3rpg in the BBL and is averaging 10,0ppg in the Basketball Champions League and filling up the stat sheet.

The American came to Bayreuth knowing exactly what he was up against and despite all the talent that he faces each season, he is never concerned about having to put up those huge stats.

In Italy I was the first option and had to put up huge numbers in order to be successful as a team. Here in Bayreuth I don't have to do that because everyone here can score the ball.

I try to focus on things that don't show in the stat sheet like improving defensively, setting screens, and improving my spacing. These are the things that will help me in the long run to become a better player throughout my career', warned De'Mon Brooks.

For a player to become a team lifer like a Quantez Robertson or a Rickey Paulding certain things have to fit. For Quantez Robertson having the comfort of walking to practice in his flip flops from his apartment and having a mall there with a Mcdonalds always had him coming back to play with the Fraport Skyliners and he is currently in his 10th season with them.

He sensed the love from the organization and fans early on and winning the league title in in only his second season surely helped.

Winning the cup final was extra icing on the cake. Also Paulding is a family man and became very comfortable with the country living in Oldenburg and with his kids getting older didn't want them to keep switching schools the more he bounced from country to country.

This just shows how important Paulding's family is to him in that he choses them over himself. He surely would have landed with an Euroleague team years ago and would have earned a lot more money, but that didn't matter to him, but only how his family felt.

That is something very unusual. Paulding even boasts a Oldenburg flag in his yard back home in Missouri. So could Brooks become the next organization lifer with medi Bayreuth?

It really doesn't matter who you talk to opponents, coaches, fans, you won't get anything negative about him. On the court he is a real fighter.

Some weeks ago he suffered a mild concussion and was out for about a week, but was back again soon after.

What many don't know is that he is co-captain and the perfect choice. He rarely makes mistakes on the court and holds the team together and always takes responsibility.

He simply wants and will do everything for his team to win. He is the type of player that every team wants to have exactly as it is for a Quantez Robertson or Rickey Paulding.

After his first season, he already signed early to remain and one quickly senses that there is big love for the team and city. Being a professional basketball player overseas, the opportunity to have that stability and security is rare.

You never know where you will be at next year. Going into the summer your mind is all over the place because you have no idea where you will be going next.

Having that security for me and my family in place that we love and loves us back was the main reason I decided to stay in Bayreuth another year', warned De'Mon Brooks.

It is a mutual feeling for the club medi Bayreuth and Brook's love surely has continued to rise which are the best conditions for the continued development of a club lifer.

One will know that Brooks is on his way of becoming a medi Bayreuth lifer when he raises the beautiful black and yellow Bayreuth flag with two lions at home in the states to proclaim his love for his second home away from home.

Chase Fieler F, college: As aprofessional he has racked up a very impressive 9 professional titkes in Spain and Holland. He played two seasons with Donar Groningen Holland-Eredivisie winning 4 titles.

As a senior he played 34 games averaging He spoke to eurobasket before the Basketball Champions League game in Bayreuth. Chase thanks for talking to eurobasket.

Welcome back to Germany. You have a record against German teams against the Telekom Baskets Bonn. What memories do you have of the thrilling win against Bonn last season in the BCL where you scored 13 points?

I remember we went into overtime. My current teammate Nemanja Djurisic was on the Bonn team. There are always competitive games in the Basketball Champions League.

German teams always play physical and with a lot of energy so it was good coming out with a victory. Your in your fifth professional season and have won 9 professional titles in three countries and also won two A-Sun titles in school.

That is simply amazing. Do you feel like your game and leadership qualities infects your teammates? I think that it is now slowly starting to infect my teammates.

Important for me was that I was always on good teams that had experienced guys. The experience I have gotten the last years has helped me now to be able to lead a team and be helpful in stressful moments.

When a guy like yourself has won so much, do you make it more of a habit to think back on all the titles to add self confidence as being in that winning mode must just always add positive vibes to you?

I think knowing that I have been there before and performed well helps. I think that the experience that I have gotten over the years winning titles helps me overcome obstacles which doesn't allow me to let mistakes multiply.

This is your second season with Oostende and you already have racked up four titles. You held many players and added one American with TJ Williams.

What makes this season's team already special in your mind? We have kept guys from the last years that helped win titles. They all know what it takes to win.

We have a young player with Vincent Kesteloot who has developed well. TJ Williams a different kind of guard than what we have and he makes our game more dynamic.

He has shown early that he can play the European style of basketball. His game gives us a new kind of aspect in our offense that we didn't have last season.

The club picked up talented second year man TJ Williams who had a stellar career at Northeastern. He had a solid G-League season, but it wasn't great.

Do you feel like he is extra motivated this season to show the basketball world that he can be a top player in any league?

Yes I feel that he is extra motivated. He is very talented and has shown already that he can play at this level and he is a very hard worker.

I don't know how he did in the G-League, but I know his last year at Northeastern was very good. He has shown already in two or three games since his injury that he can be a difference maker.

When he becomes even more confident in his role than he will become a great player. Let's talk about your game. You're a cm forward that can do a bit of every thing and can be classified as a modern forward.

If you had to compare your game to an NBA player who would best fit that description? For me to compare myself to an NBA player is very hard.

Maybe like a Ryan Anderson. The style is different in Europe and my game translates more to the game here. I like to play transition and like to pass the ball.

My biggest strength is shooting from the arc You're a player that can really fill up the stat sheet, but what do you feel is a hidden strength in your game that doesn't always get noticed right away on the court?

My hidden strength is my passing. I feel that that is a strong quality in my game that isn't seen. You kept your amazing title streak alive last season with Oostende winning three.

There was only one other American on the squad with Mike Myers. Was the diverse amount of many nationalities a big reason why the team was so successful?

Yes I believe so. I think that when you have so many guys that have played different styles in their careers makes it very difficult for the opponent to prepare for.

We have five players from the Balkan region and they always have good fundamental basketball abilities. They all are hungry, work hard and want to get better.

You played two seasons with Groningen who have had a huge rise in the Dutch league in the last 10 years winning many titles.

You won two league titles in a row. Which one was the sweetest? The first title was the sweetest. We had some adversary at the start of the season.

We didn't have a good start and had personal issues. We had talent, but just couldn't put it together in the beginning. But we were able to turn it around.

We went from being a team in the first half that never knew what kind of team would show up for games to a team in the second half that dominated on the court.

The club held many players for your second season, but please explain how important American Jason Dourisseau has been. The guy came in and with him the club started to get the winning mentality as he helped get 9 titles.

Did some added winning genes get rubbed off on you by him? Definitely some of his winning genes rubbed off on me.

I am still very close to him and talk to him every week. He was the true definition of being a professional on and off the court and taught me how do be like that.

He does so much to stay on top of his game from extra conditioning to foam rolling at night to keeping an eye on his diet. He has played in many different leagues for different coaches and has a high basketball IQ.

He watches multiple NBA games every day. He also was always helping the young kids get better. It's no coincidence that the team started to rise when he was there.

What was your wake up call to being a rookie in Europe where you knew that you were far away from home? The language barrier in a small town in Spain.

Not many people spoke English there. Some of the players spoke English, but it was generally Spanish. The coach spoke Spanish and there was a translator.

Living life in Spanish and having to figure things out on my own was a big culture shock for me. There was only one other American on the team with Tyler Brown.

How important was he for you in the early part of your rookie season for the adjustment period? He had a great senior year at Illinois State, but after he left in December was out of basketball.

Did that surprise you a bit a man of his talent? It did surprise me a little, but I also could understand it because he had a son living in his home town and he wanted to be with him.

He actually kept more to his own was always on the phone with his family. I was talking more with the older Spanish guys and the Lithuanian player.

You have played many games in your career, but did you make a note of your 22 point, 12 rebound, 5 assist, 1 block and 3 steal game against Penas Huesca which was your real professional break out game?

Yes I do remember that game. It was on the road. I remember it being a good game for me and the team. After this game we went more with the youth and started to play more transition.

I had been struggling with my three point shot, but after that game it got better. What memories do you have of the amazing March Madness run in ?

It was some of the best times in my life. Beating Georgetown on a big stage was huge. I remember preparing for them and the Big East player of the year Otto Porter.

We played fast while they had a slow down offense. Our goal was it to have them play our style. The game turned after half-time and our style went to our advantage.

It was a great experience for a small school being on a big stage. Before the season nobody knew us, but after the tournament we got so much respect.

The recognition that we got was incredible. What made the team so special? The team had no real star, but guys that all left it out on the court for 40 minutes?

We had many guys that had chips on their shoulders. We had many talented guys that felt that they could of played at bigger schools.

We had many guys that had played at very good high schools. A guy like Sherwood Brown always played hard and didn't back down from anybody.

Our coach just let us play and not let us worry about having to go out when you made a mistake. Knowing this gave us a lot of confidence.

It was a quiet confidence that coach Enfield instilled in all of us. The coaching staff made us think that we could play against anybody.

We were never intimidated to play against anybody. Talk a little about how your game developed in the four years. You were able to consistently improve your scoring and rebound average each season.

How vital was it playing for three head coaches in four seasons? Yugoslavia would take the title, but afterwards war would split the country up with Juri Zdovc being a casualty after Slovenia declared independence, two days into the tournament.

After being suspended in , FR Yugoslavia came back and took the trophy after defeating Lithuania, which was making its first appearance, since it had been a country of the Soviet Union.

The qualification format that existed until EuroBasket permitted 16 teams to compete. Eight spots were determined by the host nation and the top seven finishers of the previous EuroBasket.

The remaining Division A teams compete in a qualification tournament. There, they were divided into four groups. Each group played a double round-robin.

The top team in each group qualified for EuroBasket. The best three of the four runners-up also qualified. Of the ten teams that did not qualify in the qualification tournament, the six best got another chance in the additional qualification round.

The remaining four competed in a relegation round, with two being sent to Division B for the next qualification cycle and replaced by the two best teams from Division B.

The final spot was determined by the additional qualifying round. The six teams were divided into two groups of three, with each group playing a double round-robin.

The top team in each group played in the final against the other group's top team; the winner of that game received the final EuroBasket qualification spot.

In , Iceland's basketball national team became the smallest nation to ever qualify for a Eurobasket final stage at the population of around In , Iceland made back to back qualification to a Eurobasket final stage, then led by the young Martin Hermansson.

EuroBasket has used a number of different formats, ranging from the simple round-robin used in , to a three-stage tournament, and now a two-stage tournament that is currently in use.

The current format begins with a preliminary round. The twenty-four qualified teams are placed into four groups of six, and each group plays a round-robin tournament.

The top four teams in each group 16 overall advance to the knockout stage. The knockout stage is a team single-elimination tournament , with a bronze medal game for semifinal losers and classification games for the quarterfinal losers to determine fifth to eighth places.

Kirchheim Knights have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Heidelberg. Baunach at the other side dropped to the seventh position with four games lost.

They share it with Uni Baskets. Kirchheim Knights is looking forward to face Uni Baskets 8 in Paderborn in the next round. Baunach will play on the road against Artland Dragons in Quakenbrueck and is hoping to win this game.

Important game to mention about took place in Karlsruhe. Third ranked Gladiators saved a 1-point victory on the road edging 13th ranked Lions on Wednesday evening.

Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Till Gloger , college: Maine who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 8 rebounds and Kelvin Lewis who added 14 points and 5 rebounds during the contest.

Gladiators' coach Christian Held allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. American forward Orlando Parker , college: Wagner responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds.

One thing that hardcore easyCredit BBL fans can forever be grateful about is that there have been certain league identity figures that have played longer than most and for some stayed faithful to the same organization for their whole career in Germany.

If one was really bored on a rainy afternoon in Jena and wouldn't have a nice view on top of the meter Jentower to observe the beautiful hills around the city and one wasn't in the mood to visit one of the many city museums, one could continue to wonder how much longer the three Jena amigo's of Derrick Allen, Julius Jenkins and Immanuel Mcelroy will still continue to play as they are in their late thirties and combined have the magical age of years.

Some fans place a special mark on the calendar to especially see them and others will dread the day when the first of them hangs up his sneakers.

Then again there are two other BBL identity figures and legends in the making with Mr Skyliner lifer Quantez Robertson of Frankfurt and Mr Oldenburg Rickey Paulding who combined are in their 22nd season in Germany and combined have racked up three titles and also have been combined on the floor in Europe in games prior to this season.

One also can't forget German Per Guenther who could have left ratiopharm Ulm years ago for more lucrative offers, but remained where the heart wanted to be.

But who will be the future players in the easyCredit players that will have that amazing role model work ethic and discipline of a Derrick Allen and just keep playing seemingly forever and share that passion and loyalty to remain with just one team and not change teams as often as a Tom Brady has thrown to different targets which stands at 71 receivers.

Ok so being with one team for so far only three seasons is nothing special as one could count more than a handful of guys who have been there that long and heck there was even Mike Morrison who played four years in Frankfurt and surely would have loved to have remained longer, but that B word always gets in the way called business.

Davidson his first three years have been very special there and with the continued success of the club he might just stick around for a longer period of time.

Before getting to the basketball career of De'Mon Brooks one has to take a look at how much the player and the club's concept Hero's Of Tomorrow which came to life in the are linked.

One can best describe the team's concept Hero's Of Tomorrow as one where the club is always looking forward combined with establishing a competitive youth program coupled with having a farm team.

It is a young organization that always wants to make the next step in all areas of the organization from the office to the court. Obviously the farm team fits well with the new concept Hero's Of Tomorrow in that it wants to continue to make strides each season in hopes of competing in the pro B one day and their youth programs JBBL U and NBBL U have made good leaps in the last two years.

Another example where the club's Hero's Of Tomorrow theme has worked well is with their American players from the last two seasons.

Three of the four young players that came to the club had only had one year of experience while Trey Lewis had been a rookie. These four players are looking to make the next step having had that Hero's of Tomorrow experience.

So where does Demon Brooks fit into the equation? Well in a sense he is the perfect role model and mentor for his teammates. Brooks is a 26 year old cm forward that was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but grew up in Huntersville.

After a stellar high school career at Hopewell where he averaged double double double stats in points and rebounds there, he then went to Davidson NCAA which was just around the corner from home.

Tournament in and and both times was awarded with the MVP. Both times they were invited to the March Madness, but both times weren't rewarded with a win, but lost by seven points to Louisville and current Alba Berlin guard Peyton Siva and to Marquette which showcased future BBL players with Trent Lockett and Chris Otule.

He had a solid freshman season averaging 9. The American knows that his consistency in school and countless opportunities that he has become as a professional go back to one guy his head coach in school with Bob Mckillop.

He is the reason why I am here today. From the time I stepped foot on Davidson he prepared me for this journey on and off the court.

One of the many lessons that stays with me is with freedom comes from responsibility. This is one lesson, especially playing professional basketball in Europe, that is very important for a player to abide if you want to have a long promising career', stressed De'Mon Brooks.

In his senior season the American averaged He scored in double figures in 22 of 24 games including three 28 point games against Wofford, Elon and Samford.

Not only was head coach Mckillop an important mentor for him, but also teammate Jake Cohen who has played many years in the Euroleague with Maccabi Fox Tel-Aviv Israel-Winner League as their day to day battles in practice for three years really boosted his game and carried over into the pro's.

We have been through a lot and he is one of the reasons why I am as good as I am today. We had some battles in practice and we pushed one another every day.

When you have two great talents battling every day for 3 years its only right that it will show down the road. I have witnessed Jake go for 28 points in a half.

He is truly one of the best to come out of Davidson for sure. I am just honored to be one of his teammates and have played along side him', added De'Mon Brooks.

It wouldn't be normal to have been at Davidson and not have gotten the dose of Steph Curry stories. But my personal favorite story about Steph is during the NBA lock out and he came back to Davidson to finish his classes.

He is the best player I have ever seen personally, but with that he is not cocky or arrogant. He is a genuine person and the way he carries himself is like no other.

That what stands out most about him to me. Not what he does on court', said De'Mon Brooks. I had the luxury to play against many top players in my career.

I would say the one that stood out the most to me was Kelly Olynyk and Thomas Robinson. Those two players during their college years were outstanding players.

I think they were the toughest to me. However, Parker is somewhere on the list', warned De'Mon Brooks. Right away in his rookie season, he was on the go playing in Italy and Israel.

It wasn't most likely what he had expected as he came overseas to split time with two teams, but in the end was thankful for the experience because it was a learning experience that helped his path forward the last years.

I had a lot of ups and downs and had to learn a lot of things from the fly. Additionally being away from home also made it difficult to cope with the adjustment to playing in Europe.

However, I am thankful for that year because it prepared me for a lot of things that many players have never experienced. Those experiences have given me a new found respect for playing basketball overseas.

Personally, it is very difficult to single out one thing as a wake call. In his second professional season he returned to Italy and this time played with Orsi Derthona Basket Tortona Italy-Serie A2 playing 39 games averaging His consistency from his Davidson NCAA days broke through again as he scored in double figures in 36 of 39 games.

The stretch run of the season turned out to be exciting as he won a five game playoff series and lost a five game playoff series after being down , he fought back to win two, but weren't rewarded in game five for the comeback losing After two seasons in Italy, Brooks who compares his game to a Draymond Greene was ready for a new challenge in season three and decided to come to Germany and joined medi Bayreuth.

The decision to come to Bayreuth wasn't difficult for the North Carolina native as he quickly felt comfortable in the city and he bonded with new coach Raoul Korner quickly.

With the coaching staff and the people here creating such a positive environment it was an easy choice for me. What I like about Coach Korner is that he really cares for everyone in his program and his attention to detail.

There is no stone left unturned, but at the same time he knows how to communicate with his players to get the best out of us.

To me he is a players coach and those are the type to create a winning environment', warned De'Mon Brooks. In his first season with the German club he averaged His two biggest games was scoring 20 points in a huge home win against top German team Alba Berlin and netting 23 points in the game three win against the EWE Baskets Oldenburg.

Despite medi Bayreuth losing in the playoffs against the EWE Baskets, it was a season for the ages for the club as it had reached the playoffs for the first time since the mid 90's.

Near the end of the season the American also knew that the key to the success was coach Korber and the characters of his teammates.

He gave us a lot of freedom on the court, however with that freedom comes responsibility as he holds everyone accountable. I think that balance has made a huge impact on our team's chemistry and has led to our results.

One thing special about this team that we are all good guys that really get along with one another. But in practice you would think we hate one another because everyone hates to lose.

That competitiveness in practice has been a major key to our success as a team because by the time the games come around we know what to expect of one another', warned De'Mon Brooks.

However the club wasn't as successful as the season before where it finished in fourth place finishing in sixth place, but still reaching the playoffs for s second consecutive season which was seen as a big success.

They also played in their first international cup since playing the Korac Cup in playing the Basketball Champions League reaching the quarterfinals, but losing to German team MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg.

Ludwigsburg became their real sore spot in that they just couldn't buy a victory. They were swept in the regular season losing one game by 31 points and scoring only 47 points and then were also swept in the playoffs.

Brook's stats were down a bit from his first season, but overall he was still one of the club's most consistent performers averaging His success on the court with his game is credited to him being a player not just being in one area, but helping out all over the floor.

I am very mobile at the 4 position and I can do a variety of things. But I think my bread and butter is just playing inside and just taking what the defense gives me.

If that is scoring the ball or kicking it out to a teammate', warned De'Mon Brooks. As the playoffs in the BBL were in full swing in May , Medi Bayreuth made the announcement on May 18th that Brooks would return for a third season.

One got the impression quickly from head coach Raoul Korner that it was vital for the club to hold him after hearing his comments. Korner is more than sure that Brooks is a very important building block for the club with his play on the court and his character and his energy simply infects everyone.

This season medi Bayreuth have started slower than the last two seasons going in the Basketball Champions League and in the BBL are at Despite more scoring power than in his first two seasons, he has started off with a bang averaging 12,8ppg and 6,3rpg in the BBL and is averaging 10,0ppg in the Basketball Champions League and filling up the stat sheet.

The American came to Bayreuth knowing exactly what he was up against and despite all the talent that he faces each season, he is never concerned about having to put up those huge stats.

In Italy I was the first option and had to put up huge numbers in order to be successful as a team. Here in Bayreuth I don't have to do that because everyone here can score the ball.

I try to focus on things that don't show in the stat sheet like improving defensively, setting screens, and improving my spacing.

These are the things that will help me in the long run to become a better player throughout my career', warned De'Mon Brooks.

For a player to become a team lifer like a Quantez Robertson or a Rickey Paulding certain things have to fit. For Quantez Robertson having the comfort of walking to practice in his flip flops from his apartment and having a mall there with a Mcdonalds always had him coming back to play with the Fraport Skyliners and he is currently in his 10th season with them.

He sensed the love from the organization and fans early on and winning the league title in in only his second season surely helped.

Winning the cup final was extra icing on the cake. Also Paulding is a family man and became very comfortable with the country living in Oldenburg and with his kids getting older didn't want them to keep switching schools the more he bounced from country to country.

This just shows how important Paulding's family is to him in that he choses them over himself. He surely would have landed with an Euroleague team years ago and would have earned a lot more money, but that didn't matter to him, but only how his family felt.

That is something very unusual. Paulding even boasts a Oldenburg flag in his yard back home in Missouri. So could Brooks become the next organization lifer with medi Bayreuth?

It really doesn't matter who you talk to opponents, coaches, fans, you won't get anything negative about him. On the court he is a real fighter.

Some weeks ago he suffered a mild concussion and was out for about a week, but was back again soon after. What many don't know is that he is co-captain and the perfect choice.

He rarely makes mistakes on the court and holds the team together and always takes responsibility. EuroBasket , also commonly referred to as the European Basketball Championship , is the main international basketball competition that is contested biannually, by the senior men's national teams that are governed by FIBA Europe , which is the European zone within the International Basketball Federation.

The first championships was held three years after the establishment of FIBA, in Switzerland was chosen as the host country, and ten countries joined.

Only one qualifying match was played between Portugal and Spain. With a complicated formula, the final would see Latvia as champions.

According to the rule at the time, the winner had to hold the following games. The following two tournaments would be won by Lithuania and would see the introduction of Egypt which would compete in EuroBasket until winning one championship at home in along the way.

After the edition saw the first jump shot performed by Italian player Giuseppe Stefanini , the following edition would see the Soviet Union compete in their first edition in the edition and would see the Soviets win the first of eleven out of the next thirteen European championships.

This was won by Hungary as they finished top while the Soviets finished in third place. It was also during that edition that the thirty-second shot clock was introduced, which changed the style of basketball.

The Soviets would take out all of the championships during the 60s with them having a fifty-five game winning streak which would be broken by Yugoslavia in For Yugoslavia, they were starting to come to challenge the Soviets with the main player in Radivoj Korac aiding the team to two silvers and a bronze medal in his career which stopped in The s would see also a change in how the competition was viewed and run with FIBA putting a limit on the amount of countries that entered to 16 with qualifiers being the way to bring them down to that number as it first appeared in The following edition would see the competition not be held in one city with Tbilisi joining Moscow in hosting games and in the first modern games was held, because the games were televised and international media were present.

The s were the competition between Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union. During the decade Yugoslavia won three gold medals and the Soviet Union taking out the remaining two.

After the Soviets took out , the edition would finally see Yugoslavia take out their first championship after Spain defeated the Soviets in the semi-finals to qualify for their first final since the first edition way back in Yugoslavia would finally have a chance to defeat the Soviets as at home, they would get the chance to defeat them and they did as they won by six points to take home edition.

After following that up in , the Soviets would get their revenge in the final round at EuroBasket when they defeated them to qualify through to the final where they would defeat Israel who shocked the basketball world as they defeated Yugoslavia in the opening round by a point.

Brewing under the Soviets and Yugoslavs, the west was starting to appear with the s seeing the change happen.

In , the western side of Europe tasted success with Italy defeating Spain in the final to record their first of two titles. Two things happened in the following edition which was held in Germany.

The first was that the NBA scouts had appeared in masses to see the best players. That same edition also saw the first three-point arc being used.

Greece would win the next edition in at home and followed that with a silver medal at the edition in Yugoslavia.

EuroBasket was the first EuroBasket tournament in which currently active NBA players, that had also already played in an official NBA regular season game were allowed to participate.

It would also be the first edition where the Soviets weren't entered into the competition, as the USSR collapsed and it didn't qualify for the main tournament.

Yugoslavia would take the title, but afterwards war would split the country up with Juri Zdovc being a casualty after Slovenia declared independence, two days into the tournament.

After being suspended in , FR Yugoslavia came back and took the trophy after defeating Lithuania, which was making its first appearance, since it had been a country of the Soviet Union.

The qualification format that existed until EuroBasket permitted 16 teams to compete. Eight spots were determined by the host nation and the top seven finishers of the previous EuroBasket.

The remaining Division A teams compete in a qualification tournament. There, they were divided into four groups.

Each group played a double round-robin. The top team in each group qualified for EuroBasket. The best three of the four runners-up also qualified.

Of the ten teams that did not qualify in the qualification tournament, the six best got another chance in the additional qualification round.

The remaining four competed in a relegation round, with two being sent to Division B for the next qualification cycle and replaced by the two best teams from Division B.
