Bridge Looking For Nineteenth Winners Medal - Mar 7, 2013

Andrew
Bridge
One Health Sharks Sheffield forward Andrew Bridge (193-F-79) heads into Saturday's BBL Trophy final looking to collect both a record 19th winners' medal & a record 6th BBL Trophy winners' medal and he can't wait for the big game.

"It's great to be in a final for Sharks, I think it's the competition they've had the least success in, so first and foremost it's good to be in the title game after a tough start to the year. Obviously we're looking to win the game as we haven't been successful yet against the Riders this season, but we played them better last time. We stopped playing after 28 or 29 minutes which as frustrating and disappointing, but we simply have to make our shots for it to be a competitive game. That's how simple it is, make shots and we'll play with them if don't it'll be like the other times they've beaten us."

Bridge admits that has to pinch himself when he thinks about how many trophies he's won: "It's a bit insane from where I started to 18 winner's medals. There's a lot better players who have played in this league than me, but whatever people stay about the standard in different eras, you still have to win. I'm not as good as many of the players I've played with or against, but I have found a way to win and that's as important as as getting 20 points and ten points each night. In all of the teams I've been on I've had to make sacrifices to help make us a winning team. Whatever happens on Saturday, I can look back at my career and say I've helped make a winning team, and be happy with that."

Bridge has generally been on the side who are expected to win the finals he's played in, but he's not worried about the underdog tag: "it's not weird I, feel like every game we have a chance to win because we're better getting each week. It's not a surprise that we're the underdog, Riders have been good all year and if we reached the final the chances were we'd be playing a team higher up the league. We'll go in thinking we'll win. We can't approach it any other way. Any sports-person should approach a game looking to win it."

Bridge was delighted with the 102-74 hammering of Cheshire Phoenix which wrapped up their place in the final last week: "It probably went as well as it could have gone for us. We had a bit of good fortune with Marks and Gumbs out for them, but we came out as focussed as we have all year. We did what we needed to do, and that's pleasing. It's probably the most complete two-leg game that I've played in as far as my team doing what they needed to do. I didn't need to play much, which from point of view is good."

A defeat at London Lions on Sunday proved to be a dampener for both the Sharks and Bridge himself who was playing his 400th BBL Championship game: "I think we thought we are a little better than we are" admitted the 34-year-old.

"We'd just made a final and we let them play their kind of basketball in the first half. They took advantage and although we turned it into our kind of game in the second half we'd given ourselves too much to do. Maybe two games over the weekend and the long trip were too much for us."
