GEORGE Beamon says Worcester Wolves are ready to hit the “big time” when they take on Cheshire Phoenix in the BBL Cup final tomorrow (3.30pm).
Up to 10,000 spectators are set to pack out the Arena Birmingham where Wolves will be looking to get their hands on the trophy for the first time.

The guard said he had also played in front of 20,000 fans at Orlando Magic’s Amway Center where he featured for Manhattan College against Louisville.
And he felt those experiences would hold him in good stead as he looked to help guide his side to a memorable victory over Cheshire.
“I have played in front of packed houses but this will be great,” Beamon said.
“To be somewhere away from your family and still have people come out and watch you is a blessing.
“For some guys it will be their first time and they have never got over that hump.
