Leo-Niclas Niebuhr (born August 4, 1986 in Uelzen ) is a German basketball player . The former junior and A2 national player belonged to the cadres of various German first division teams without permanently settling in the top German division basketball Bundesliga . Niebuhr had his most productive and most successful time with the Oettinger Rockets Gotha, with whom he achieved promotion and relegation in the second highest German division, 2nd Bundesliga ProA . Since 2014 Niebuhr has been playing for the reserve team BAWE Oldenburger TB of the first division club EWE Baskets Oldenburg in the third-highest class 2. Bundesliga ProB , before he finally moved up to the squad of the first division team from February 2015.
Niebuhr played until 2003 for his hometown club TuS Ebstorf and then moved to the second division SG Braunschweig , who as a reserve team of Erstligamannschaft under the then sponsors name BS Energy changed its name , in Braunschweig acted. After fourth from last place in the 2nd basketball league in 2003/04 , the team improved to sixth place in the following season. In the basketball Bundesliga 2005/06 Niebuhr had two short appearances in the top division for the first time, when the Braunschweiger stumbled sportily only occupied the last place in the table and could only keep relegation by increasing the league. At the U20 European Championship in 2006, in which the German junior team finished penultimate, Niebuhr had his only tournament appearance in a junior team of the DBB . In the Braunschweig second division team, Niebuhr was able to continuously expand his game shares to over 20 minutes per game until 2007. But after the previous regional groups of the second division were merged into two hierarchical classes, the Braunschweiger were only sorted into the third highest class, 2nd Bundesliga ProB, after tenth place in the northern group in 2007 .
In the absence of a sporting perspective in Braunschweig, Niebuhr moved in 2007 to the first division relegated BG Karlsruhe , who missed the return to the top division in the ProA 2007/08 in seventh place. After Niebuhr had only got a small share of the game at BG Karlsruhe, he went back to Lower Saxony and joined the Quakenbrück first division club Artland Dragons . Under coach Thorsten Leibenath , Niebuhr got three short appearances in the second most important European club competition Eurocup 2008/09 but only four appearances in the top division, instead he played in Quakenbrück mainly for the regional league team of the home club TSV. Then Niebuhr moved to the second division to the Giants from Nördlingen , who had withdrawn from the top division for economic reasons after a year of first class. In the ProA 2009/10 , the young, newly formed team achieved only seven wins of the season in 30 games and was relegated to the bottom of the table at the end of the season. The Nördlinger then withdrew their team from the professional game operations of the three highest national leagues back to the regional league. Niebuhr went back to the Artland Dragons, where he was used in the basketball Bundesliga 2010/11 under the new coach Stefan Koch in 24 first division games with an average playing time of just under three minutes per game. At the end of the season, the Dragons lost the play-off semi- final series for the German championship in just five games against the later new champions Brose Baskets .
For the 2011/12 season Niebuhr moved to the third highest division ProB to the Oettinger Rockets from Gotha , with whom he won the championship of the division and promotion to the ProA in the 2011/12 ProB . Niebuhr contributed an average of 15 points and almost six rebounds to the success. After relegation in ProA 2012/13 , Gothaer lost in ProA 2013/14 in the first play-off round for promotion against future ProA runner-up Crailsheim Merlins . After Niebuhr just missed an average double-digit point result in his second ProA season in Gotha for the first time, he left the Thuringian club and moved back to Lower Saxony to the ProB champions 2014, the cooperation of the basketball academy Weser-Ems and the Oldenburger Turnerbund (also BAWE OTB abbreviated). The reserve team of the first division EWE Baskets from Oldenburg had renounced promotion to the second highest division. As an experienced player, Niebuhr should bring stability to the team, which mainly consists of young players.
In the summer of 2015, Niebuhr returned to Ebstorf and took over the position of player-coach for the club's men's team (2nd regional league). In 2017 he rose with the team as a successor in the 1st regional league.
