In the lead, undefeated. Four wins for i Titans, just as many for Montemarciano. And tomorrow evening, Saturday 6 November, here is the direct confrontation. It is the key match of this group A and we are waiting to see how it will go. It is played in the Marche region, at PalaMenotti, with a duo ball at 9.15 pm.
Coach Porcarelli, how do the Titans arrive at this match?
“On a mental and energetic level I would say well, we come from four consecutive victories and we are on track. On a physical level we are not in the best possible condition. We are not 100%, but we will fight “
A hint of the latest success, the internal one with Acqualagna …
“A well managed match. Acqualagna is a good and well trained team, which can give you a hard time. Given their absences, it was important to put her on the tracks most favorable to us right away, and so it happened. We won every quarter and from there the final gap was created “
Montemarciano has just formalized Schiavoni’s return. Can you give us a description of the rest of the team?
“First of all, I emphasized the arrival this year of a coach like Valli who has also coached on more important stages. Then they filled the place vacated by some seniors by replacing them with even stronger seniors. This is the case, for example, of Maggiotto, their top scorer (17 points per game), a player who has indisputable qualities that is dominating the championship. In addition there are the Savelli brothers, there is Tagnani who is scoring many important baskets, there is Moscow. At the center of the area then they took Curzi who won the C Silver with Jesi. Then Maiolatesi, Centanni. A respectable team that, starting with the choice of the coach, wants to win the championship “
What is the Montemarciano trademark?
“Everyone is scoring, the strength of the roster is evident. Complete team, in each scoreboard there are four players in double figures and they also defend strong. They have many weapons, we will try to neutralize as many as possible “
How much will the home factor count?
“They have a warm building that knows how to make its voice heard. Help us in our growth path: we will have to know how to live with each other, because it can happen other times from now on, and play while having fun “
What is the final education?
“Playing without pressure, knowing that it is the fifth of the championship and that being now at +2 on the second or -2 from the first in the final balance will not be so decisive. There will then be nine other first phase matches, eight second matches and so on. We are at the beginning of the season, we will try to play our best but we have to put everything in perspective. We will try to take a step forward as always, game after game. To grow”
