BASKETBALL IRELAND WEEKLY PREVIEW

Teams seek play-off place

UCC Demons face a difficult and unusual programme in the Nivea for Mens SuperLeague when they play Belfast Star twice in less than 24 hours this weekend.

11890 Killester will be hoping to build on their epic win over Bord Gais Neptune last week when they visit NUIG to play Moycullen.

UL Eagles will be looking to continue their positive end to the season when they visit UCD Marian, while Bord Gais Neptune will be looking for their first win of the season against DCU Saints.

UCC Demons trip north will be a memorable one, as they become the first team in the history of the league to play the same team twice in less than 24 hours.

Demons will be without the injured Carlton Cuff and Shane Duggan but coach Paul Kelleher is hoping his team can produce the type of basketball they are capable of.

'This could be our toughest weekend of the season for a whole number of reasons, said Kelleher. Star are coming into the sort of form that I had expected from them before the season started and coming off two big wins in recent weeks makes them even tougher.

Star have quality right through their side and have great perimeter scoring and we also know of Josh Johnson's credentials after he spent a season with us. This will be an exciting game, but if we are going to get the desired result in both games, we will have to play with patience, poise and use our experience to get over this challenge.'

For the Star coach Danny Fulton it is an opportunity to make it three wins in a row and end the season on a high despite failing to reach the Play-Offs.

We stopped the rot against Killester and followed up last week with a win against Moycullen but we know Demons will be a far tougher proposition, said Fulton.

Bord Gais Neptune will be desperate to return to winning ways against DCU Saints after the disappointment of last weeks one point overtime loss to 11890 Killester.

The defeat to Killester leaves their hopes of claiming the Southern Conference hanging by a thread.

If we produce a similar battling performance against DCU Saints I think we will pose them problems, said Neptune Head Coach Mark Scannell.

It was hard to take the Killester defeat in the manner we did but we cannot do anything about that now and we must stay focused on the job in hand.

For the DCU Saints coach David Donnelly it has been a frustrating last fortnight following defeats to UCC Demons and UL Eagles.

We are not firing and we need to get back to winning ways and playing Neptune on our home court will be the acid test for us, David said.

I am trying to solve the mystery of how our form dipped so suddenly and we need to address it quickly with the play offs around the corner.

11890 Killester will have a full quota to choose from as they make the trip to a Moycullen side, who are looking for their fifth win of the season.

We were relieved to get back to winning ways against Neptune but this is another game that is not a forgone conclusion, said Killester Head Coach Darren ONeill.

UL Eagles had a mixed weekend when losing to UCC Demons but they bounced back to demolish DCU Saints and coach Mark Keenan is hoping for a repeat performance when they travel to Belfield to play UCD Marian.

When we play our best basketball we are formidable opponents for any side in this league and the main focus for us right now is not to look beyond the play offs, Mark said.

UCD Marian showed signs of vast improvement in their recent clash with 11890 Killester despite the 84-81 loss and will be hoping the Play offs will mark a positive end to their campaign.
