GEORGE Beamon says Worcester Wolves are ready to hit the “big time” when they take on Cheshire Phoenix in the BBL Cup final tomorrow (3.30pm).

Up to 10,000 spectators are set to pack out the Arena Birmingham where Wolves will be looking to get their hands on the trophy for the first time.

Excitement has been building at the University of Worcester Arena since Paul James’ side beat Sheffield Sharks over a two-legged semi-final last month.

And Beamon insisted it was now time for his in-form team, who have won 12 of their last 13 games, to “take care of business”.

“Everyone is excited,” said the 26-year-old American.

“But I have been trying to get guys more ready than excited.

“We have been working on our offensive and defensive systems so we are definitely prepared for this match.

“If we were to win it would be big time not just for us but for the community and the fans.

“Some people have never been in a cup final before so it’s a great accomplishment to get there and I am definitely proud of that.

“But we have got to take care of business and get right back on track for the next one.”

Beamon is one of the more experienced players on Wolves’ roster having played in the D-League with Oklahoma City Blue.

The guard said he had also played in front of 20,000 fans at Orlando Magic’s Amway Center where he featured for Manhattan College against Louisville.

And he felt those experiences would hold him in good stead as he looked to help guide his side to a memorable victory over Cheshire.

“I have played in front of packed houses but this will be great,” Beamon said.

“To be somewhere away from your family and still have people come out and watch you is a blessing.

“For some guys it will be their first time and they have never got over that hump.

“But we have got to play the same and execute as we have been doing.

“It’s just another test.

“Obviously it’s for a cup final so there is a bit more on the line.

“But we are going to go into it the same way we have been each week and try to get a win.

“I am definitely one of the leaders on the team and I have tried to keep the younger guys focused and on their toes.

“We are definitely making strides this season but we want to keep striving.”

Wolves have won four of their last five meetings against Cheshire with two of the victories coming this season.

But Beamon added: “Cheshire are a great team.

“We just go out there, focus on the defensive end and if that is clicking our attack is going to come good and we will be hard to beat.”
