Coach Ramagli and Anderson charge the city: «With the stadium full we are another team. But pay attention to Pistoia “
Game 1 is approaching and consequently the tension that a promotion semifinal brings with it. The pass to go upstairs, Sunday 22 at 6 pm, it will also pass by the AGSM Forum in Verona where the Scaligeri and Pistoia are ready to do battle. In view of the commitment, coach Ramagli also spoke, who had already alerted the environment after game 5 with Mantova, and Anderson who in that game 5 became the protagonist with 29 points on the scoresheet.
THE WORDS OF RAMAGLI AND ANDERSON
«Pistoia is a team that we got to know closely in the very recent past – recalls the Gialloblù coach – because we had the opportunity to play against in the penultimate of the clock phase. That game, however, must not make sense because it has no connection with the competitive part that will instead be there during this series. The Giorgio Tesi Group is a team with a strong defensive footprint, very similar to us, even for those that are the peculiar characteristics. We are very similar in the way we use the defensive score of the matches. To date, if we make a comparison, we will be the second best defense, points for possession, and they if they owe the fourth. Team sharing ball, order. It is a very balanced match, where we have the home factor on our side and it represents an advantage even if, as already mentioned, if you want to go on you have to win away games and only we, in the quarter-finals, have respected in full the field factor “.
“Pistoia is a team with a lot of talent – explains Karvel Anderson instead – it finished third showing all its qualities. We have already faced them in the clock phase but that is a game to forget, because it was not the real Pistoia: now it will be a much tougher opponent. The qualification to the semifinal gave us confidence, in game 5 against Mantua we were able to force them to play at our pace, proposing and imposing our way of playing basketball. Now let’s think about this new series, let’s start with two races in Verona. Our fans have seen how much energy they have given us, we are a different team when the arena is full of passionate fans. We dream of having such energy every home game ».
