BASKETBALL IRELAND WEEKLY PREVIEW

TEAMS SET FOR KNOCKOUT STAGE


Its a big weekend in both the Mens and Womens Nivea SuperLeagues with the quarter finals of the Play-Offs taking place.

Arguably the biggest game of the weekend will see the National Cup champions UL Eagles travelling to Clontarf to play the reigning SuperLeague champions 11890 Killester.

In the second quarter final Bord Gais Neptune will host UCD Marian in what should be another competitive clash.

In the Nivea Womens SuperLeague quarter finals, DCU Mercy will be hoping to book a semi-final berth when they host fellow Dublin side Meteors.

11890 Killester are sure to be tested in the other quarter final when they entertain Waterford Wildcats with the prize on offer of a trip to play regular season champions UL.

In the Nivea Womens SuperLeague, DCU Mercy will be favourites to prevail against a Meteors side they have already enjoyed two wins against this season.

We would be foolish to underestimate Meteors as they have good young players coming through their ranks and its a case of giving them the respect they deserve, said Mercy Head Coach Mark Ingle.

The prize on offer is a trip to face Team Montenotte in Cork on St Patricks weekend.

We are very happy with our progress and that we made the play offs, said Meteors Head Coach Hugh Kilbride. We are very aware of the huge past we have with away games to DCU and it will be tough.

11890 Killester will pose Waterford Wildcats a few problems at Clontarf as the Waterford coach Tommy OMahony looks forward to a mouth-watering quarter final.

Killester are always tough on their home court but I thought we got back to playing near our best level against Meteors last week, Tommy said.

A huge blow for Killester is the continued absence of Ashling Sullivan through injury but the Dubliner is confident her team mates can make their home advantage count.

'It is a tough call but we beat them already at home and I know the crowd will be really behind us,' said Sullivan. 'We have to get stuck in and if we do that and stop their big players I believe that we will win.'

The bottom four teams in the Nivea Womens SuperLeague are involved in Shield semi-finals with Singletons Supervalu Brunell hosting Liffey Celtics.

Liffey Celtics shocked Brunell last week and coach Tomas Ilves will be hoping for a repeat performance.

In the second semi-final Ulster Rockets will fancy their prospects of defeating Oblate Dynamos following their impressive performance against UL.
