Basketball Ireland Weekend Preview

A number of intriguing sub-plots litter the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague schedule in week eight including a repeat of last years final, the first of back to back matchups and a cup game preview.

On Friday undefeated UCC Demons welcome Moycullen to the Mardyke Arena, a court that the Galway team have never secured a league victory on.

The men from Moycullen will be hoping to end that streak however as they enter the game on the back of two straight wins. They can also take solace from the fact that they played the current league leaders tight in Galway, losing by only eight points in the season opener despite the loss of their star point guard Salva Camps early in the contest.

Demons will likely be without powerful perimeter scorer Carlton Cuff who is struggling with a shoulder injury. Cuffe has been immense this season but his loss may be mitigated somewhat by the re-emergence of Ciaran OSullivan as a scoring threat after he netted 28 points the teams last outing.

Demons head coach, Paul Kelleher is wary of the challenge Moycullen pose but confident with the direction his team are headed in.

A team that wins two overtime games in a row is team that has no fear and they will certainly be coming into the Mardyke Arena with a lot of confidence, he said.

We have been steadily progressing in recent weeks and our defense last weekend was certainly better.

For UCD Marian and Killester, their Saturday evening meeting marks a significant opportunity to turn around recent losing trends as the two teams now play against each other in consecutive weekends.

Killester have lost their last three games with Marian in a four game funk. Two wins from the two encounters over separate weekends could be the catalyst for a renewed title challenge that would have been both teams ambition at the beginning of the season.

We are two teams on bad losing runs and two games against the same team is a great opportunity to get back on track. We are looking forward to what that will bring and hopefully getting two wins, said UCD Marian head coach Sasa Punosevac.

Killester fans will be relieved to hear that starting shooting guard, Robbie Clarke, who was ejected from last weekends game after a confrontation with UL Eagles guard Scottie Kinevane, has not been handed any ban and will be clear to play against Marian on Saturday.

The Bord Gais Neptune side that bested Marian last weekend will be aiming to leave the capital with a similar result this Saturday as they take on Dublin Inter at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght.

Neptune, after a deceptively slow start to the season, have rattled off four straight wins. Inter head coach Audrius Jonusas is aware that stopping them now will be a real challenge.

The run and run and run and we will really have to try and stop their fastbreak if we are to win. It is an interesting game as we will play them in two weeks time in the cup, he said.

Inter can take some confidence from an excellent display last week that saw them come within five points of UCC Demons. With a full squad this weekend, except for the injured Irmantas Griksas, they should prove a handful for a travelling Neptune team.

Meanwhile DCU Saints will try to bounce back from a tough overtime loss in Galway last weekend when they play UL Eagles on Sunday. The matchup is a repeat of the 2011/12 league final when Eagles edged out a resilient Saints team. Eagles head coach Mark Keenan is expecting a similarly tight affair this weekend.

The two teams will line up pretty much similar to last years league final and I expect the same tough defensive game again. We must stay composed on offence and deal well with the Saints defensive pressure in order to win, commented Keenan.

Superleague Season opener Demons V Tralee / Player Changes - 7 days ago

September 23rd in Ireland still has people returning albeit to one degree or anotherin dribs and drabs from end of season holidays. What mark's it differently though this year is that the Basketball season begins some 2 weeks or so earlier than normal and this is accounted for withthe addition of two extra teams to bring the total to the highest ever at 12 teams. Ok the general standardcan be said to belacklustre at both the import and regular Irishplayer standard to that say of the early...   [read more]
