A Quick Catch Up of Etzella's Season


Now, I know that some of you who read our blog are following Nathan's basketball career, and I have failed you this season! My basketball related posts have been seriously lacking since arriving in Luxembourg, so let me catch you up to speed.

Nathan's team, Etezella Ettlebruck, is in the top division of the league here in Luxembourg. The top division consists of 10 teams. All 10 teams will face off against each other twice in regular season play. And at the end the top 6 teams move on to the playoffs. The bottom 4 teams will join the top 4 teams from division two in the "play downs" and fight to remain in the top division, or be replaced by a team currently in the second division.

Going into last night's match up, Etzella was 8-8 overall, and tied with 2 other teams for 5th place. However, Etzella lost to both of those teams in their respective head to head match ups, which technically puts Etzella just outside of the top 6. After this weekend's games, which will conclude tonight (Sunday) there is only 1 week left in regular season play. In order to make the playoffs and finish in the top 6 Etzella must win next weekend's match, and at least one of 3 other teams need to lose. It is pretty exciting stuff with playoff positions coming down to the wire!

Here is a great website for those of you wanting to keep track of the league back home. BONUS: it's in English!

In other news, Nathan was voted onto the 2013 Luxembourg All Star Team! That officially makes him 3 for 3 for all stars in his career abroad. I am so proud of him! The All Star Game and other festivities take place next Sunday, Feb 2nd. I will do my best to keep you informed if I hear it will be streamed online, and of course I will be taking lots of pictures.

And just in case you missed it, there was a great article written about Nathan in the Deer Park Broadcaster which you can find here. The article was also translated and published in the Luxembourg newspaper, so if you feel like brushing up on your German you can find that copy of the article here.

There is a free app called "RTL Rebound" you can download in the itunes app store. They post live play by plays and box scores of every game, and sometimes include a link to the live streams. Nathan's team plays every weekend on either Saturday or Sunday evening. Remember we are 7 hours ahead so game time would be around 11 or 12 in the afternoon for those of you watching back home.
