Basketball Ireland Weekend Review

This weekend in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague, UL Eagles maintained their top of the table position while Killester, Bord Gais Neptune and DCU Saints all enjoyed wins on their home courts.

UL Eagles entered their game against Moycullen confident after two strong wins the weekend previous. However, the young resilient Galway side made sure last years champions had to work hard for the win.

Speaking after the game, Head Coach of UL Eagles, Mark Keenan, was disappointed with his teams performance, That was a scrappy game, we didnt play at our full potential but a win is a win.

Keenan continued, Coming down the stretch, experience was a huge factor in the game and we were lucky it was on our side. It was not a good performance on our part at all but everyone chipped in to pull us over the line and come away with the win.

Meanwhile in Dublin, Killester saw off UCC Demons on a score-line of 85-77. With Killesters Assistant Coach, Tom Doherty, stepping in to call the shots this weekend and with new signing, Michael Bonaparte lacing up, Killesters new shape clearly caused the Cork side problems.

The northsiders entered the game off a weekend of mixed results as they fell to Moycullen on the road but regained composure the following evening to see off UCD Marian. Using these results as motivation they were ready to challenge the number two spot holders, Demons.

Killesters manager, Rachel OConnell, enthused, We are delighted to come away with the win this evening. Bonaparte did a great job for us, he fits in well with the team so it made sense to bring him in.

OConnell highlighted the importance of the win, Its been a tough week for everyone here but the guys worked together and things are starting to shape up nicely for us. Atmosphere is great in the camp and we are all looking forward to the cup game next weekend.

Staying in Dublin, DCU Saints overcame newcomers, Dublin Inter, after the game went into overtime. With both teams struggling to find momentum this season the northsiders welcomed the much needed win.

Head Coach of DCU Saints, David Donnelly admitted, We had to take it right back to basics this weekend if we wanted to overcome Dublin Inter and we did that, especially on defence.

Offensively, Eoin Quill hit some big shots to keep us in the game. We were lucky to make it into overtime but we made great plays down the stretch that paid off and saw us come out the better side of a close game.

In Cork, Bord Gais Neptune outworked UCD Marian to record another win over the Dublin side. As Neptunes injury issues begin to subside the team are coming into form nicely as the season progresses.

Speaking about his side, Head Coach of Bord Gais Neptune, Mark Scannell, credited the win on character, We came out strong in the second half and really put in a solid team performance. Our energy down the stretch allowed us to break away and enjoy another win on our home court. Both Townes and Noonan lead the team very well in that game and the younger guys are enjoying getting involved.

Scannell continued, Thats two on the bounce for us now so the mood is good within the team, we are healthy and on form at the moment so looking forward to the cup game next weekend.
