Entering its third season in the BKT EuroCup, Veolia Towers Hamburg is hoping to make some noise in the upcoming campaign. Led by head coach Benka Barloschky, who was handed a new two-year contract this summer, Hamburg will hope to put its experience from the last two seasons to good use after replicating its eighthfinals finish in 2022-23. The German team has been placed in a tough-looking Group A and only six sides will advance to the playoffs, meaning that Coach Barloschky's charges will have to make every game count in the 2023-24 EuroCup season.
Hamburg's 2022-23 campaign came to an end at the hands of Prometey Slobozhanske in the eighthfinals, with the Ukrainian team – which plays its games in Latvia – making the most of its home-court advantage to win 87-79. Now, with both sides looking rather different compared to the last time they went head-to-head, Hamburg heads to Riga in Round 1 to try and inflict some early revenge against Prometey. Given that Hamburg went 2-7 on its travels in the regular season last year, grabbing a road win would be the perfect way to get the team's campaign up and running.
