BASKETBALL IRELAND WEEKLY REPORT

This weekend marked the beginning of the 2012-13 National League season. Reigning champions, UL Eagles, returned home with an impressive victory against Cork side Bord Gais Neptune while Killester came out on top after they clinched a close win at home to Dublin rivals UCD Marian.

UCC Demons beat a resilient Moycullen in Galway as Nivea For Mens SuperLeague newcomers, Dublin Inter, claimed their first win against last years beaten finalists, DCU Saints, in the National Basketball Arena.

Reigning Nivea For Mens SuperLeague champions, UL Eagles, came back from a 13 point deficit at half time to win with a buzzer beater over Bord Gais Neptune on a score line of 72-74.

Although the game had an exciting finish, UL Eagles started the game very sluggish. The second quarter seemed the most difficult for them as they struggled to close the gap with the cork team. Speaking about the game, Head Coach, Mark Keenan admitted, We made life difficult for ourselves and did not play well in the first half, we lacked composure.
Keenan continued, During half-time we got it together and started the second half with determination. At one stage we went from being 13 points down to 9 points ahead. The guys put in great work to get back in the game. Unfortunately, we didnt maintain this lead by missing free throws that we should have put away. The game came down to the last possession and Taylor hit the shot on the buzzer. We were lucky. Although the Limerick side came away victorious Keenan declared, I am happy with the win and leaving Cork with two points but I am not happy with our overall performance.

Dublin Northsiders Killester fought hard for their 62-59 victory in their Dublin derby with UCD Marian.

Feeling slightly underhanded without the help of star player Jermaine Turner, Head Coach, Darren ONeill was delighted with his teams win, Its always nice to start the season off with a win. It was a tense affair from the jump and with the first quarter ending 11 a piece it wasnt necessarily great basketball. ONeill continued, Our defense was superb though! Down the stretch it came to us forcing turnovers which then gave us an open run for some easy baskets. Chubb was outstanding for us finishing up with 20 points but we grinded it out until the very end.
UCC Demons enjoyed a win on the road against Moycullen as the game finished 80-72.

UCC Demons Head Coach, Paul Kelleher, played tribute to the Galway side as he expressed just how difficult it is to come out of their gym with a win, Galway is always a tough place for us to go. From our last three encounters there we have only won by a collective 9 points. They are always close games. Kelleher added, To win by 8 was definitely our best results against Moycullen. Sullivan and Nihill caused us a lot of trouble but Coughlan and OSullivan stepped up and made some great decisions when we needed smart play. Our win was a character victory for us and everyone played their part, it was a team effort.

Dublin Inter were keen to send out a serious signal to the rest of the league with their impressive 82-67 win over DCU Saints.

We are delighted with our first win in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague, a first in the history of our club! said Head Coach, Audrius Jonusas. He continued to express how important the win was for his side, This win was fantastic for our team and management but also for the future of the club. Speaking about the game Jonusas said, The first half was very tough but once we slipped into a zone defense it worked well. Tamusauskad played a great game for us but everyone on the team played their part. I hope this result will send a message to the league that we are serious contenders this season!
