Club icon Rickey Paulding said goodbye to his own fans at his last home game for basketball Bundesliga club Ewe Baskets Oldenburg. The American, who left Lower Saxony at the end of the season, contributed 18 points in the 113: 87 (63:38) against S.Oliver Würzburg.

The fans of the Baskets recognized her idol with a big choreo. A huge banner with the imprint “15 years of loyalty – threesome, dunks and passion. Thank you Ricey” adorned the opposite before the game. The encounter was less important in terms of sport. The 2009 master already has the relegation, the Würzburgers miss the play-offs.
