“Servus!” Eddy Edigin (25) has to laugh himself when he greets you at the jetties. “I don’t think I can find out.”
The Towers entrance from Bavaria has been living on the Elbe since July. “I felt comfortable straight away,” says the professional basketball player.

Before the test on Friday, eight days before the start of the season, against Göttingen (7.30 p.m., Inselpark), BILD asked Edigin to do a fish roll test!
“I grew up with Bavarian-Swabian cuisine,” says the 2.03-meter-long man who came to Regensburg from Nigeria in 2004. “With pork knuckle and meat loaf rolls. I’ve never eaten fish rolls. So far I only knew fish fingers. “
The taste buds: Bismarck herring! When Edigin takes a seat on a bollard, hungry seagulls approach. But they don’t get anything. Edigin clicks: “The acidity, the onion, that’s really delicious.”
Just like the togetherness at the towers: “In terms of chemistry and understanding, that’s great. Pedro Calles is very determined as a coach but also warm. “
After a cruciate ligament rupture, Edigin played in the ProA in Leverkusen for two years, surprisingly became runner-up in the summer: “It’s a very, very big step into the BBL. That is definitely a witch’s leap. “
As for the second roll: crabs – technically demanding to eat. “It’s less fun,” says the noodle fan.
For the towers, Edigin and Maik Kotsar (24) will form the center duo: “I’ll do my best to help the team.”
Because the 100 kilo edge is still hungry, there is roll number 3: pepper mackerel! Edigin chews – and fumbles a bone out of his mouth: “Delicious too. If I were to eat three in a row, I would have mackerel. “
Then it also works with the “Moin”.
