Pokalfinalen for damer er på søndag i Forum Horsens. Det bliver et opgør mellem Stevnsgade og Amager. Vi har taget en snak med Coach Todd Anthony for at hører ham om hvordan han ser finalen og hvad det betyder for klubben at være i pokalfinalen.
It’s been a long time since, BK Amager has been in the pokalfinal, what does it mean for the Club?
It means a great deal to the club. Amager has been a mainstay in the women’s top league for years and has produced many top women’s players. It shows that Amager is climbing back towards being a top team in the league. The pokal is such a big deal here in Denmark. It feels really good to have the opportunity to play in the final. I would imagine that there are only a few girls on each team that have played in the cup final so they know what’s at stake.
What can we expect to see from BK Amager? And what do you expect of the final?
We try to play a high tempo brand of basketball at both ends. Offensively we want to play with pace and attack. Play for each other and with each. Share the ball. Defensively pressure the ball and try and take the other team out of their sets.
What will be the Keys for game?
The keys to the game for us are pretty much the same as for any game. While we will focus on attacking Stevnsgade on both ends of the floor in certain ways are mindset is always the same. Playing to our potential, executing our offense and defensive sets, and playing at our pace and playing together.
Who will win? And why?
Of course you want your team to be the winner. I think it will come down to all the small fundamental things. Both teams will probably come out with some nervous energy. The team that can get into a flow and execute will have a very good chance to hoist the cup. It seems very simple but at the end of the day it all comes down to stopping the opponent at one end and putting the ball through the hoop at the other. I feel confident that the ladies from Amager will be ready to perform and will play well. Just want to say good luck to Stevnsgade.
