Falco opened the competition in spectacular fashion with a 76-83 victory over title candidate Bavi Vilvoorde. This performance ensures that expectations will be high when the Gentenaars await the BNXT team Circus Brussels on Sunday for the sixteenth final of the Belgian Cup. Throw-up in the Sint-Janscollege at 4 pm.

Besides Sam Caron (11 points), Robbe Van den Bossche was the only man at Falco who reached double figures with 35 points at Vilvoorde. “Of course, the victory over Vilvoorde was rather unexpected,” says star Robbe Van den Bossche. “Last year Vilvoorde was on a sigh of promotion and despite this defeat, they remain among the big contenders for the title this season. Also teams like Oostkamp, ​​Sijsele and Oostende-Gistel will probably compete for the upper jay. I think it’s a shame that PhD student Asse-Ternat is not in our series, because we know a lot of guys from there. The fact that I was able to score 35 points is also thanks to the assists from Jasper Ünal and Thibaut Platteeuw, who were able to reach me smoothly in the fastbreak. Our guards read the game very well in the pick-and-roll. After the break we were able to pull the sheet to us in the second half. We could not have imagined a better start to the competition.”

Secretly dreaming

This weekend, as part of the Belgian Cup, there will be basketball in the Sint-Janscollege. “Last year we were very successful in the Belgian Cup. After we knocked over Liège, we had to give up against the same Brussels in front of eight hundred spectators. We get ten points in advance, if we don’t miss our start and are on the lookout from the start, we might be able to run a little further. Who knows what is possible then? After last year, Brussels will certainly not underestimate us. We want to make it a good match anyway. We secretly dream of completing a fantastic course in this cup, just like last year,” concludes Van den Bossche.
