More on this storyline

When asked how he coped with the challenge of a poor shooting night, Schroder revealed that he focused on maintaining a positive mentality to support his teammates. “I just tried to stay positive. At the end of the day, if you make or miss shots, you can’t control that. But what you can control is to be positive. Still, talk to your teammates as a leader and captain. I can’t fall into a bad mood. I’m just happy for everybody else stepping up, and happily, we won the game.” -via BasketNews / September 6, 2023
The situation would have been much different if Davis Bertans made the last shot of the game, a three that would have completed a true Cinderella story after a comeback from being down by nine in the closing two minutes. However, the ball didn’t go in. Sharp-shooter Andreas Obst added 13 points for Germany, Mo Wagner had 12, and Johannes Thiemann 10, covering the off-shooting night of Dennis Schroder who had nine points on 4/26 FG, including 0/8 threes. -via / September 6, 2023
Christos Tsaltas: Moritz Wagner at @SportalgrG on if Franz Wagner will play vs. Latvia. “If you had $1M, I give you an answer and it would be a guess. I have no clue. He looks good tho. He’s making shots, he’s smiling. That’s all thst matters.” #KoerbeFuerD #FIBAWC #MagicTogether -via Twitter @Tsaltas46 / September 4, 2023
