as of Friday, the start of the Belgian basketbalcompetitie with the Oostende-Limburg United. Everything you need to know about the EuroMillions manager for 10 issues.
1. Ostend, once again titelfavoriet
Ostend, captured in June, the eighth consecutive title, a record in Belgium. Questions the nine of clubs is that the kustploeg this season, the favorite has to be himself, to do the same. The team of coach Dario Gjergja was a day shot and a bite in the budget, however, with Dusan Djordjevic, Jean-Marc Mwema, Yannick Desiron, Loïc Schwartz, and the top of the foreign duo, Shevon Thompson, and Htc Angolo a lot of experience and talent. The six players of the previous campaign, with the kampioenentrofee in the air and came to a halt.
after playing his Antwerp Giants, where a lot of players and a Coach of the Year, Roel Moors, saw it leave and is tipped to be on their own to follow, and the winner of the Belgian Cup. Okapi Aalstar with a single injection, and in addition to the public prosecutor’s office in Brussels, the ever-ambitious, Serge Crevecoeur, a young Limburg United’s coach, Brian Lynch, and in the Mountains, with the Bosnian head coach Vedran Bosnic to the underside of.
in March, the most wealthy club in Belgium still remains a question mark. The latest price of dating back to 2011, and this year, the Spirous coach Pascal Angilis again, the new look and feel. On paper, continues to Charleroi, and the team Oostende, the sale must be disposed of. It would be for Axel Hervelle, who is most likely to be his last the season will be a nice farewell to it.
To the surprise of the season, we are looking for a healthy Leuven Bears, coach, Eddy Casteels, and a new Roo, Mechelen coach Paul Vervaeck. Or be surprised to the section of the river, coach Sacha Massot?
2. A new competitive ormule
finally, Still only ten teams in the EuroMillions lottery League and the double-turn is due to a lot of matches removed. The new competitieformule is a trade-off between the top and the subtop and it takes a half of the campaign. The place with the each and every day, as the two teams ‘ bye, especially, is not particularly attractive. In the first round in two of the groups (1,3, 5, 7, 9 2,4,6,8, and 10) and five based on the previous campaign. The points to be considered for the second round. As a result, a full turn of the game.

3. No Bene League
it is a Pity that the project, in order to have a BeNe-League next season to start up in the fridge to put into it. In the Netherlands it was in the top 4 with little enthusiasm. There is, in Belgium, also does not market to expand to 12 to 14 profploegen. The Pro League is an urgent need for the talks to reach an ambitious tweedeklassers, and, as in the Dutch Premier league, looking for teams with semi – professional status for the step up to the EuroMillions lottery League and want to make it. The only way there is, on the one hand, a quantity of injection with a minimum of fourteen teams at the deadline of the order, and, on the other hand, the problems of ugly speelformules of the job.
finally, Not least, of Liege, in February, an application for receivership pending, and are struggling with debt. In order to be temporarily protected from its creditors, said the people of liège, therefore in a proceeding concerning the receivership to it. In the long term, ten healthy profploegen seems to be a problem.
