Betting scandal reaches German basketball?
According to German news magazine "Spiegel" [serious source], authorities are currently examining a German BBL playoff game from June 2009 towards involvement in the big European sports betting scandal. The exact game was not mentioned. Playoff games in June included Game 2 and 3 of the Oldenburg - Bamberg semifinal series [Oldenburg in three], Game 2 to 5 of the Bonn - Berlin series [Bonn in five], and all five games of the Oldenburg - Bonn final series [Oldenburg in five].
A few weeks ago [when the whole topic started to unfold in the media] it was written that Ivan Pavic [former Bamberg player, some sort of sports director (?) and - independent - player scout] had been taken into custody due to his involvement in the scandal.
However, no indication that the playoff game is linked with Pavic's doings in the scandal.
