LEB Gold Basketball | Van Beck: “I need to be smarter because I have been called a lot of fouls”

Wesley Van Beck He is one of the players who still has a lot to say at Palmer Alma Mediterránea Palma. The North American escort, who lives his first experience in Spanish basketball, acknowledges that he is having a hard time adapting to the differences in the style of play. “On USA 1 against 1 is played a lot and here it is a more collective game. I like to play like this better, passing the ball to my teammates although I need to be smarter playing because in the first matches I have been called many fouls and I have not been able to help the team, “says the Houston-born forward.

With experience in American college basketball and Colombian league basketball, one of the aspects that Wesley Van Beck is working on perfecting is precisely adapting to the rules of European basketball. “I have friends who have already told me how to play here. You can’t use your hands so much in defense here and that’s something I’m getting used to.“acknowledges the American.” In the United States you can use your hands more and play more physical, “he adds, to make it clear that” it is something that is very easy to solve and I am going to do it. ”

Taking advantage of that this week there is a break in LEB Oro, Van Beck is pushing himself to become even more of a reference in the Álex Pérez and Pau Tomàs team. “The time that I have been here has been very good. I have adapted well to my teammates and the coaches and all the people have treated me super well,” says the American, who arrived at the club last October, with the league already started. “I am getting to know much more about the culture of here, the city and the food and I love everything”, admits Van Beck when referring to his stay in Mallorca and then adds that “we have worked a lot on the track and we will continue working to improve every day”.

“We have made mistakes in the last minutes of the games but that is something we can change”

Although the team streak is very worrying, with just one victory in the league, Van Beck assures that the team’s morale has not declined and that they are already thinking of leaving that bad moment behind in the next days of competition. “Mentally we are fine. We have made mistakes in the last minutes of the games but that is something we can change. We are a very young team and what happens, from my experience, is that when you have a team that is so young it takes more time to learn and show how to win the games. All the players in LEB Oro are older than us usually. I am convinced that we are going to achieve it “, he concludes.
