The American buyer, the president: “He can help us a lot to rebalance the team.” The coach: “He always brought results”. Su Sollazzo: confrontation with his agent
First jersey of the Mascio Blu basketball group and first training session for Corbett La Marshall, the winger bought yesterday (March 22) for the acceleration that the Treviglio team wants to give to the championship final. With the arrival of the American player, the foreigners of the Trevisan roster have increased to three and the game opens with the future of Adam Sollazzo who will be decided during the course of next week.
“It was an operation that we were waiting for”, confides the president Stefano Mascio – It is the only one that has lived up to the standards that we have set ourselves, particularly with regard to the ambitious objectives that we have set ourselves. We’ve seen this player before and we’ve always loved him. At the moment, he can give us a great contribution to rebalance the team“.
“We had a set-up problem – admits the coach Michele Carrea – which we found in many matches and which is not linked to poor performances but the son of an alchemy that the team had difficulty finding. Adam Sollazzo’s specific characteristics were not functional despite the player’s commitment and professionalism at the highest level. LaMarshall is an actor who has always taken responsibility in producing and closing benefits, has great technical and emotional impact, he brought results in all the teams where he played. We are going to take advantage of these days to put him at ease. He knows he came here to take the team to a higher level of performance.
“I found a very motivated and serious environment – are the first words of LaMarshall -. I’m in Treviglio to win and I’ll give the team everything I can. On the game side, I like both sides of the field, in attack and in defence”.
A flexibility that is one of the most appreciated characteristics of the American exterior in addition to the high volume of fire of the field. Even in an unfortunate season like the one that started this year in Orzinuovi the American basketball player averages 17 points per game. “One of the characteristics that led us to observe LaMarshall this summer – confirms coach Carrea – is that he has played many parts of the ‘point’ game and can play alongside a ‘point'”
About the inclusion of the new player, the coach explains that he is not starting from scratch. “The path taken has led the team to find better defensive solidity – says Carrea – now we have to produce a change again, but without waiting for there to be to rebuild from scratch. There will be aspects of the game in which LaMarshall will go to meet the team and others in which, conversely, the team will go towards him seeking balance without upsetting certainties. We have important matches right away and we don’t have time for long tries”.
Indeed, Sunday at home, Blu basket 71 will have to take up a challenge at the top Pistoia thesis group who is second in the group and has already beaten her twice. “Our objectives – observes President Mascio – remain important as announced at the start of the season. Of course, not everything went as planned, starting with the disqualification of Giddy Pots which put us in difficult market conditions. It took a while to get the right operation. I thank Sollazzo for all he has given to the company. He is still part of the group but now we needed an extra boost”.
“Sollazzo – Carrea confirms – he was not removed from the group. Out of respect for the professional, he obtained permission not to participate in the preparation for Sunday’s match. This week there will be a confrontation with the player’s agent as we already spoke to him yesterday. Clearly everyone’s desire is to operate with full respect for the player. If he does not express a desire to explore other shores, I hope he will stay to give us a hand”.
