Benjamin David Lischka (born June 21, 1989 in Giessen ) is a German basketball player . From the ProA 2007/08 season onwards , Lischka played in the second-highest German division for the TV Lich BasketBears, before returning to his hometown Gießen in 2013 after four years in Württemberg , where he played for the second division clubs Kirchheim Knights and Crailsheim Merlins. He has been playing in Bonn since 2019.


In his youth, Lischka first played for TSV Langgöns and then for VfB Gießen. With the U18 national team , Lischka took part in the U18 European Championship finals in 2006, when Lischka, who received little playing time except for the game against Croatia, only reached 13th and fourth from last place with the selection. In the newly founded youth basketball league (NBBL), Lischka played with the junior team of the BBLZ Mittelhessen from 2006 onwards, missing a top position in two seasons and being eliminated in the first play-off round. From 2007 Lischka already played for the men for TV Lich in the second highest German division 2. Bundesliga ProA , where he played with his two years older brother Johannes Lischka . After relegation to twelfth place in 2008 , they rose in the ProA 2008/09 as bottom of the table from the ProA.

While his brother Johannes, who was also called up to the men's senior national team for the first time in summer 2009 , played with a double license with Lich's cooperation partner Gießen 46ers in the top division, Benjamin Lischka switched to previous league competitor Knights after the Lich's relegation in 2009 to Kirchheim unter Teck . After two fourth places with the Knights in the ProA, Lischka switched to the ProA 2011/12 to the Württemberg competitor Merlins from Crailsheim . With the Merlins Lischka also reached fourth place in the main round 2011/122, but lost in the play-offs played for the first time in the semi-final series against the main round first and later play-off winners Mitteldeutscher Basketball Club . In the ProA 2012/13 the Merlins only came in eleventh place. After insolvency proceedings, old master Gießen 46ers was relegated from the top division for the first time after the basketball Bundesliga 2012/13 as bottom of the table. For the rebuilding, the 46ers hired former national player Denis Wucherer as a coach and also brought Lischka back to Giessen. In the ProA 2013/14 Lischka again reached the fourth main round place with the 46ers, but like two years before they lost the semi-final series against the main round first and later play-off winner BG Göttingen .

In the 2014/2015 season, Lischka managed to get promoted back to the basketball Bundesliga and the 2014/2015 ProA championship with the Gießen 46ers after two years in the Pro A. In the 2017/18 season in particular, he made a leap forward and achieved his best Bundesliga scores to date with 10.3 points per match. He stayed with Mittelhessen until 2019, in July 2019 he was signed by Bundesliga competitor Telekom Baskets Bonn  .
