LUKAS Volskis is itching to get to Manchester as Leopards look to round off their season with a third piece of silverware.
The Big Cats face Leicester Warriors on Saturday afternoon in the play-off semi-finals as they look to add to their Division One and National Cup titles.
And Basildon based Volskis cannot wait to get back on court.
“I very excited about getting to Manchester for the Final Four as it is an opportunity to end the season on a huge high” said the 21-year-old guard.
“I believe we are prepared to tackle our next challenge which is getting past a very good Leicester Warriors team.
“I've always thought that Leicester are a strong team with great athleticism so it won't be an easy to task to get by them.
“The fact that we have won the last 20 games will motivate Leicester even more to try and defeat us.
“However, we are more than capable of winning and getting through to the big final on Sunday.”
If Leopards are successful on Saturday they will face the winner of the Bristol Academy Flyers versus Derby Trailblazers semi-final the next day.
But Volskis is not getting ahead of himself.
“We have to take care of our own semi-final and worry about ourselves,” said Volskis.
“And, after our recent performances, I don't think it really matters who we play as we have shown that we can beat anyone so it will come down to us executing and playing hard in order to win the Final Four.”
