Experienced coaches Goethals and Louvrier talk about Meesseman, FIBA Europe Young Women's Player of the Year - Feb 25, 2012

The FIBA Europe Young Women's Basketball Player of the Year award earned by Emma Meesseman (192-C-93) on Feb. 6th has been an opportunity to have an interview with Daniel Goethals (agency: LBM Management ) and Etienne Louvrier , two major head coaches in Belgian women basketball. They both know Emma Meesseman very well. Daniel Goethals is a former international Belgian player (with experience in the major Belgian clubs but also in Greece and Spain) who took part in several Belgian Men's NT campaigns in the past. He is the current head coach of BC Dexia Namur Capitale, a former Euroleague Women participant and a top club in the Belgian Division I for women for many years. Goethals has also been the Belgian Women U16 NT coach in 2009-10 and led the U17 NT up to the semifinals at the World Championship held in Southern France in the summer 2010. He has been named Coach of the Year 2011 in Belgium when he was at the head of Declercq Stortbeton Waregem, the team that he led to the Belgian league title that season. Also in 2011, he accepted to coach the Belgian Women U20 NT. He had coached BC Dexia Namur Capitale in 2009-10 already and now accumulates some fantastic experience in women basketball. The other interviewee, Etienne Louvrier, has also been a very much appreciated coach in youth categories and women basketball. He was hired as head coach of Belgian Division I team Spirou Girls Charleroi (which became Spirou Monceau Charleroi afterwards) from 2005 to 2008 and also gained some coaching experience with the Belgian Women U16 and U18 NTs.

Bertrand Larsimont - (EB): What are the real key points in Emma Meesseman's way of playing?

Daniel Goethals (DG): Although she is a young player, she shows maturity and experience on the court. She has great hands (precision). Her game vision is also a key point. Her timing in defense and offense allows her to react almost never too late.
Etienne Louvrier (EL): Emma is extremely intelligent on (and off) the court... Very quickly she understands what needs to be done and can achieve it. She can manage. She can also force or play with fouls and knows when to shoot or drive. Emma can easily find the right timing for blocking shots and has a good body placement when playing defense.

EB: Emma Meesseman is still very young. In which sector of the games should she still work and get better?

DG: Physically speaking, Emma needs to get stronger, gain speed and power. She plays as a power forward, which is tougher in foreign leagues. Therefore, Emma needs to get perfectly prepared because she still has problems from time to time when playing against very strong opponents. She must absolutely progress in one-on-one situation when facing the rim, especially her right hand and quickness. One last point: she should work on her three-point shooting. So far, there is no need to defend on Emma when she is behind the three-point line.
EL: Physically, she has to build her body to be able to struggle in the paint at the highest level... and most of all, get a better base position and shuffling movements on strong legs as well as be quicker when running down the court.

EB: Many observers have quickly made a comparison between Ann Wauters (194-C-80, agency: Josep and Nicolas) and Emma Meesseman. Is Emma Meesseman ready for an international career and can we already predict a wonderful career (like the one of Ann Wauters) for the new 18-year-old Belgian Young Cat?

DG: I think Emma could already play in a foreign league right now but she is not ready to dominate in a big league yet! According to me, she should first progress in the aforesaid sectors.
EL: Yes, I think she is. And I am sure that she will get a very nice career. But she needs a counselor, other than her family circle, who will be able to help her well in the near future... Let's avoid burning her out or willing her to adapt too quickly to a new league and to a professional status. In some respects, she has still to grow up!
DG: Comparing the two players (Ann Wauters and Emma Meesseman) is quite bold. Yes, Emma will have a great career but there is only one Ann Wauters! Moreover, the two players are different as far as height, power, positions (power forward vs. center) are concerned. I have had Ann Wauters come to practice with me for a few weeks and I can assure you that she is physically impressive! Emma will never become that type of a player simply because she does not have the same body. She will have to rely more on technique and outside shooting in a big league!

EB: How can such an award as Emma Meesseman's honorific FIBA Europe Young Women's Basketball Player of the Year title be beneficial to Belgian basketball?

EL: It reflects on the work that coaches, players and staff do for women basketball in Belgium... which does not have enough presence in the mass media!!!
DG: Honestly I don't know! We have no league in Belgium and plenty of internal problems! To make it short, all things that make you leave instead of being attractive. The problem is that we get good results in youth categories but nothing is done afterwards.The training program from age 18 to 23 is a catastrophe and the best talents will get no other chance than leave to a foreign league because there is no professional structure in Belgium. A professional structure is what I'm trying to build in BC Dexia Namur Capitale and that's why I'll try to have Emma on my team in Namur next season but there are many others interested in having her!
