FRAPORT SKYLINERS from Frankfurt came into the 2017-18 German League season with a squad that meshed young talents with savvy veterans. The blend worked out nicely as Skyliners started the season with five wins from six games behind the lights-out shooting from Philip Scrubb. The team's solid form earned it a place in the German Cup quarterfinals, but Medi Bayreuth was too strong. The race to reach the German League playoffs was tough, but Skyliners were up to the challenge. Four wins from the last five regular-season games gave the team a 20-14 record and eighth place. Skyliners faced FC Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals and behind Scrubb and Tai Webster jumped out to a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series, however, Bayern came back to win the next two games. Scrubb, who led the league in scoring with 19.6 points per game, also won the league award as Best Offensive Player.
