Basketball Ireland Weekend Review

In the penultimate weekend before the Christmas break, the Nivea SuperLeagues saw nearly every team in action between Friday and Sunday.

The standout result came on Saturday night as DCU Saints knocked off first placed UL Eagles in Dublin, 76 to 63.

Eagles had only lost one game all season and entered the game as big favourites given their recent run of form. Speaking after the game however, Saints head coach Dave Donnelly said that his team always believed they could win the game.

I know people looking at our records might have thought Eagles would beat us for sure but I have been saying all year that when we play well we can beat any team, we just hadnt always played to our best.

Saints were league finalists a year ago and after a sluggish start to the 2012/13 were sorely in need of a big win like the one achieved Saturday night.

A key development in the game was when UL Eagles centre Jason Killeen got in early foul trouble, leaving Saints with a noticeable size difference as the newly formed inside combination of Conor Grace and Martins Provisors combined for 31 points.

We definitely took advantage of the fact that we were bigger than them. After Killeen went to the bench they tried to go small but we handled their quickness pretty well. They got it back to maybe seven or eight now and again but we generally held our lead all game.

The previous night, the weekends action got off to a dramatic start on Friday when two of the newest entrants to the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague, Dublin Inter and Moycullen met in the National Basketball Arena.

In a tough and physical encounter it was the visitors from Galway who emerged victorious after a thrilling overtime contest.

Pat Sullivan proved the most valuable player, contributing 39 points in the game including several key scores in overtime.

We looked dead and buried going into the fourth quarter but there is an incredible team spirit in the group and we dug deep to force overrtime, said Sullivan.

Im not sure how much we deserved the win because Inter probably played the better basketball for a lot of the game but once it got close we believed wed do it. This was our third overtime game this season and we have won them all so that confidence was there which helped.

There was more drama to follow in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague the following night as Bord Gais Neptunes Darren Townes converted two late steals against Killester to snatch victory at the IWA Centre in Clontarf.

The final score line of 78 to 80 in favour of Neptune was a fair reflection of what was a tight and hard fought battle, one which Neptune head coach Mark Scannell was delighted to come out the right side of.

It wasnt one of our best games. We had 25 turnovers which is far too many and were down 10 midway through the third quarter but we showed great character I think to stay in the mix and come through in the end, said Scannell.

The final game of the weekend in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague saw UCC Demons welcome UCD Marian to the Mardyke Arena in Cork. Both teams came through tight cup quarter finals the weekend before and were brimming with confidence.

That confidence helped Marian go toe to toe with Demons on their home court creating a tense back and forth contest that saw the scores tied with just eight seconds remaining and Marian in possession.

A steal by Demons American Kenton Walker however led to a break away basket and foul for the Cork team. After converting his and-one free throw, Walker then blocked Marians final shot to secure the win.

Kenton was awesome today. We maybe didnt use him enough during the third and fourth but he came up big in the end, said Demons head coach Paul Kelleher.

This was a great character win for us and we need these type of wins as we enter begin to look to bigger matches to come.
