The team from Groningen was in the final in your own house with a 78-58 clearly too strong for Landstede Basketball Zwolle.
Donar knew in a sold out Game (4.310 spectators) a bad start and stood after the first quarter with 15-20 behind. Then took the team to the reins and was, above all, to better defend.
Landstede knew in the second quarter, but eight points, which makes the formation of coach Herman van den Belt to rest against a backlog of 38-28 looked at. The team from Zwolle came back slightly in the third quarter (51-43), but the victory of the people in Groningen was never really in danger.
