Basketball Ireland Cup Quarter Final Weekend Preview

The annual drama of the National Cup gets into full swing this weekend as the quarter final round kicks off in the Men and Womens SuperLeague Cup.

For many teams, the cup is a welcome escape from league struggles and for all the teams competing this weekend, regardless of their season so far, lie just two wins from a cup final and live TV exposure.

One team glad for the distraction is UCC Demons, the early pacesetters in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague who have recently relinquished their grip on first place with back to back losses.

They will need to rediscover that form quickly as they travel to Dublin this weekend to play DCU Saints, a formidable team fresh off a dramatic overtime win against Dublin Inter.

We are going to have to match their enthusiasm and energy and if we do that we will be there or there about and thats all we can ask for, said Demons head coach Paul Kelleher.

Weve actually played reasonably well recently and we are back to full strength. Carlton Cuffe played last weekend but showed a bit of rust, which is to be expected, and having him back into our rotation properly this weekend should make a big difference.

Opposing Kelleher on the sideline will be Saints head coach Dave Donnelly, who described the game simply as massive and knows that his team, who will be without the services of an injured Mark Nagle, must contain Demons star players to be in with a chance.

Cup games are massive for all the teams. We slipped early in the league a little bit so there has been a little bit of extra focus on the cup and the lads have been going really hard in training all week.

Shane Coughlan controls the tempo for them and he hurt us earlier in the season with some big scores. We need to limit his influence and that of their American (Kenton Walker).

Meanwhile, the only two teams to have beaten Demons this year meet in Limerick as UL Eagles take on Killester.

After a dismal start saw them plummet towards the bottom of the table, Killester have won their last two games and seem reinvigorated by the addition of Michael Bonaparte to the line-up.

Despite the disruption of losing head coach Darren ONeill last week, Killester kept their focus against a Demons side looking to exact revenge for their first loss of the season a week earlier, winning by eight points.

Weve had a good week of practice coming off the momentum of that win and Michael Bonaparte is settling in really well, said Killester team manager Rachel OConnell.

A tough challenge awaits Killester this weekend however. As if a trip to play the defending champions in Limerick was not difficult enough, the Dubliners will be without star guard Eoin Chubb, whose knee problems leave him side-lined.

Despite this, Eagles head coach Mark Keenan is taking nothing for granted.

Killester have shown how good they can be by beating UCD Marian and UCC Demons in the last few weeks. Mike Bonaparte has made an immediate impact for them. We will need a big performance from all our players if we want to go through to the cup semi-finals.

In Cork, Bord Gais Neptune are getting into the Christmas spirit for their cup quarter final against Dublin Inter in Neptune Stadium and have been busy distributing free tickets to help people experience the magic of cup basketball in Ireland.

"We are trying to have a sort of carnival of basketball," said Neptune head coach, Mark Scannell who encouraged fans to check out the U18 cup quarter final preceding the senior game when Neptune play Letterkenny Blaze in the stadium at 2pm (SuperLeague Cup game at 7pm).

We are playing well at the minute but the fact that we were beaten by Inter in Dublin will be on our minds. We had a lot of injury worries recently but everyone is back to playing health and it has actually stood to us as we have a deeper rotation due to so many bench guys stepping in and playing very well in that time.

Inter will have the extra burden of enetering the game with a new head coach after they parted ways with Audrius Jonusas by mutual agreement. Their Basketball Ireland Mens Division One coach, Irmantas Griksas, has agreed to fill the role for the remainder of the year.

A statement released by Dublin Inter stated that the first year at the highest level of Irish basketball has been demanding to all involved and it has taken lot of the time and commitment - players and management would like to thank Audrius for his passion and dedication over the years for the benefit of the club and team and we wish all the best in future to him.

The final cup quarter final pits old rivals UCD Marian against Moycullen with the unique venue of Leitir Moir in the Galway Gaeltacht being used for the fixture.

We have had a lot of success playing games in Leitir Moir and there is a great basketball community out there that really appreciate the chance to see top teams playing in their area, said Moycullen guard James OBrien.

Marian have a great team and we will have to keep a handle on their scorers to be in with a chance but we have beaten them once this year and are confident that if we play we have a team good enough to make a real run at the cup.
