INTERVIEW WITH COACH JEROME ALFF - Aug 26, 2010


POSTED BY:

Eurobasket had the pleasure of sitting down with Luxembourg U16 Assistant Coach Jerome Alff , to get his thoughts on this, a history making venture that just concluded in Tallinn, Estonia with his team, and his thoughts on the future.
EU: Hello Coach, how have you been doing? How did you enjoy the history making experience?
JA.: Hello, well i'm doing fine still enjoying the good campaign we just had in Tallinn. The team really stepped up at the right moment and the key players as well as our role players did a tremendous job, considering all the teams were bigger, stronger & generally more athletic.
EU: How would you describe the way that the young players responded to the larger teams and opposing fans?
JA: Well, its just the 'team spirit' and the unstoppable 'will to win', the consistent 'never give up'spirit of our young players that overcame the physical deficits which they definitely had. I mean everybody who saw the Luxembourgish team play and even our opposing coaches just complimented those qualities after each game! What certain players were able to do in certain periods of the tournament was just amazing and they really deserve a lot of recognition for their accomplishments. Head Coach Mark van Schutershoef etterhoef who knew how to handle the team and individuals in such a way as to push them to their best at the right moments.
EU: You did have the opportunity to make history in achieving the most number of wins compared to any other Luxembourg Team at this age...what do u see as being the next steps needed by the FLBB?
JA: The positive development of Luxembourg's basketball has gotten strong reinforcement from the 'sport high school' (created 3 years ago now) for specially skilled athletes. The school supports young kids & adolescents in their efforts to progress to a high level in sport and have combined it with a good education at the same time. Furthermore, the inclusion of more and more 'full time' coaches for several years now on Luxembourg's youth level also has had a great impact on Luxembourg's basketball progression and also the aspirations of more and more young players with desires of playing basketball on a professional level sooner or later. Those 2 main reasons should, in whatever way, be supported and pushed by the FLBB..
EU: What do u see on the horizon for the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg? What types of adjustments do you feel need to be made to continue the positive results that you had this past tournament?
JA.:Personally, next to the existing aspects i already suggested, my personal opinion is that clubs & also the federation should think about including more Luxembourgish head coaches on Senior Teams and should, on the other hand; get more quality professional 'full time' coaches in the youth section of the clubs for better long term development of technical basketball basics and for better athleticism!
EU: We see that you were able to put together a unified team effort and fight your way out of a bad situation, even upsetting the host country Estonia in the process. Please detail JA.: The main challenge was of course our lack of size; therefore we had to battle even harder on defensive rebounding. We also needed lots of easy fastbreak points along with a good shooting percentage on distance shots, as scoring under the basket against a set defense was very hard. The heart of the team was set by our starting center Yann Wolff (192-F-94). Yann, who was barely 6-4 feet tall, had to battle against far taller and stronger center players but just excelled in what he had to do. He ended up finishing in top 10 rebounders , (5th on offensive rebounding) and top ten in double doubles and top twenty in scoring. Our shooting guard Jo Hoeser (189-F-94), who is a tremendous scorer and fighter,had his best individual scoring game against Georgia with 36 points. Last but not least, our playmaker Bob Melcher (185-G-94) which, in my eyes, was certainly one of the smartest and best playmakers at the tournament. And what made the team play at their best in most games was that the other starters and specifically the bench players stepped up when they needed to! Just great team effort overall.
EU: The boys battled back from playing behind in 3 games, namely Estonia, Finland and Belgium. How did you keep the boys corralled and ready to fight back in these situations?
JA We kept a positive attitude at all times and always put lots of trust in the team which has been the key factor. Next to the fact that we are lucky to have players with great attitude! Of course, we also offered them some quality time together off the court to help develop team spirit before and during the competition in Tallinn.
EU: Any thoughts on what is next for this group of young talents?
JA: The key players from this campaign will all go up and reinforce the U18 team next year which should get a really nice squad in 2011. Some good, young players who were mainly role players on the U16 program this year, will definitely have to step up next year and i'm convinced that they will!
EU: What can we expect from you in the near future? We hear that you are the new Head Coach at BC Mess. What can we look forward to from them?
JA.: I will focus 100% on the head coaching job at BC Mess where i'm lucky to take over a very talented and very young team. The first goal is definitely to integrate some young players into the Senior Men's Team and generally to work on getting this team ready to get up and stay in the first division in a two year period.
EU: In closing, do you have anything to say to your fans?
JA.: Fans of Coach ALFF?.I doubt it..Are you sure this question was for me?! LOL
Eurobasket would like to thank the ever so modest Coach Alff for taking the time to speak with us. We would like to congratulate him on a job well done, and wish him continued success and we will look for exciting things from him this season. BEST SWISHES!
