Basketball Ireland Weekly Preview

This weekend in the Nivea for Mens SuperLeague each team will take to the court on Saturday night. As the games continue to provide surprising results this weekend is sure to be no different.

First up on Saturday night will see northsiders, Killester, welcome UCC Demons to the I.W.A. in Clontarf. Coming off the back of a double weekend on the road, Killester will be eager to start the game strong on their home court. After their loss to Moycullen last Saturday evening the ever resilient side bounced back on Sunday to overtake a confident UCD Marian.

Speaking about the weekend gone, Head Coach, Darren ONeill said, Last weekend was a real mixed bag for us. It was tough to lose in Galway but we put in a team effort on Sunday to come away with the points we needed.

Commenting on the game ahead ONeill announced, We are looking forward to the battle against Demons. When we played them earlier this season it was a close game so we will hope to build on that performance while taking the positives of last weekend with us also.

UCC Demons also suffered a tough loss last weekend when last years champions, UL Eagles, broke their winning streak in Limerick.

Focusing on the game this weekend, Paul Kelleher, Head Coach of UCC Demons explained, Last time we came up against Killester it was a tough game for us and it was close. They are a dangerous side, especially on their home court. We need to improve on our performance from last week if we want to leave Dublin with a win come Saturday.

Down in Cork, Neptune Stadium will host Bord Gais Neptune as they take on UCD Marian. The Cork side will enter the game confident after their impressive victory over DCU Saints last weekend. This is also the third time for the two sides to meet this season with both teams recording a win each. Regardless of league standings, this game will see each side battle it out for bragging rights in order to find out who deserves the second win.

Head Coach of Bord Gais Neptune, Mark Scannell, said, The last two times that we have meet UCD Marian there has been nothing between the games. This encounter will be a tough one and we need to be prepared going into it if we want to come away with the win.

Sasa Punosevac, Head Coach of UCD Marian, was honest when he admitted, This game has come at a bad time for us especially after our poor performance last weekend at home. We will enter this game like every other and aim to come away with a win but we are looking forward to the cup game in two weeks to boost the team morale.

Meanwhile in Dublin, DCU Saints will take on Dublin Inter in DCU Complex. The last time these two teams faced off it was the opening game of the season and Dublin Inter came away with the win. DCU Saints will not only use this fixture as an opportunity to seek revenge but also to bounce back from a string of losses over the last few weeks.

David Donnelly, Head Coach of DCU Saints said, We are looking forward to this game and the opportunity to come back strong after a disappointing loss to Bord Gais Neptune last weekend. We lead at the end of the second quarter but were outworked in the second half.

Donnelly continued, This weekend we will take it right back to basics. We are going to rely on our defence to get us this win and challenge Inter.

Keeping it short and sweet, Head Coach of Dublin Inter, Audrius Jonusas, enthused, We are looking for another win this weekend and we will do whatever we have to in order to achieve it.

The final game in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague will see UL Eagles take on Moycullen in the UL Arena. Last weekend, the defending champions, UL Eagles, overcame Dublin Inter and UCC Demons which in turn saw them fly to top of the league table. Moycullen also had a good weekend as they saw out Killester to claim their third win out of their last four games.

Looking forward to the game, Mark Keenan, Head Coach of UL Eagles said, We cant be complacent going into this game against Moycullen. They are a tricky side that have always given us a great battle. We need to keep our momentum up if we want to continue with good results.
