Basketball Ireland Weekend Preview

January may be best known in Irish basketball for the magic of the cup but this weekends Nivea SuperLeague results will undoubtedly have huge bearing come March.

With just a point separating UL Eagles and UCC Demons atop the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague table both teams will need to overcome resurgent teams in DCU Saints and Killester. Meanwhile, Bord Gais Neptune will look to continue their recent run of good form when Moycullen come to town while UCD Marian and Dublin Inter round off the weekends action in the men.

Speaking ahead of their crucial tie with Killester, UCC Demons head coach Paul Kelleher praised the response from his players following a heart-breaking Cork derby loss to bitter rivals Bord Gais Neptune in the cup semi-final.

We talked about it for a few minutes on training Monday night and then we put it behind us. I though the application and attitude of the players was fantastic and a testament to their character.

We have one focus now and only one focus and that is Saturday night in the IWA Centre in Clontarf and getting a result against Killester, said Kelleher.

While they will be favourites, Demons were almost upstaged on their last journey to the capital as UCD Marian, without the services of their American player, came within a single basket of the Cork outfit.

The last meeting between these two sides was packed with side-stories as Killester introduced a new coach and new American player in Tom Doherty and Michael Bonaparte. Inspired by these additions to the team, Killester went on to stun Demons and will be hopeful that the matchup problems they caused that day will once again bear fruit this weekend.

In Limerick, a very similar storyline is present for the contest between defending champions UL Eagles and DCU Saints. The previous meeting between the teams saw Saints pull off a major upset and head coach Dave Donnelly is well aware that a superb performance will be needed this time around to avoid suffering from an inevitable Eagles backlash.

We did get a good result against them last time out but it will be a huge ask to go to Limerick and win and we know that. They are clearly one of the best teams, they are top of the league and in the cup final, said Donnelly.

Donnelly, who has seen a resurgence in form from his team after a shaky start was refusing to be drawn into how high up the table Saints can finish.

It has been a really topsy-turvy season and we need to just continue taking it one game at a time, play well and hopefully that will leave us in a good position by the end of the season.

While the two table-toppers are on court in Dublin and Limerick this weekend, their closest challenger, Bord Gais Neptune will be hosting Moycullen of Galway in Cork. Neptune currently lie two games off top spot and cannot afford any mistakes as the season nears its end.

Moycullen head coach Salva Camps is well aware that his young outfit will be facing a focused and currently in-form team in Neptune.

They won a big game last week in the cup semi-final against Demons and will be very confident. To win we will need to contain their centre Darren Townes who really hurt us last time out as well as stop Ger Noonan from getting down the lane whenever he wants.

The only other game on the schedule this weekend is an all-Dublin affair as UCD Marian and Dublin Inter square off in Belfield.

Boosted by the signing of Thomas Viglianco, Marian came agonisingly close to winning their cup semi-final last weekend only to be thwarted by a late UL Eagles rally.

Heading into this weekends games, UCD Marian guard Conor James is hoping the addition of Viglianco continues to see improved Marian performances.

As well as being a lights out shooter, Thomas is incredible at getting his team mates involved so he didnt have to make much of transition to fit in with our team, said James.

Despite being at the lower end of the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague table, Marian proved last weekend that they are still capable of beating any team in the counry.

The mood in camp is very good and we are starting to play with a lot of freedom. There isnt a whole lot of pressure on us anymore and we tend to play better playing as a team who has nothing to lose, said James.

The standout fixture in the Nivea Womens SuperLeague this weekend is without doubt the mouth-watering all Cork tie between a young up-and-coming Singleton SuperValu Brunell squad and the established top team Leeside, Team Montenotte Hotel Cork.

This is the Demons Neptune game for us. There has been a great rivalry between the teams and everyone is fit and ready to go for Sunday, said Brunell head coach Kieran OLeary.

We are obviously at somewhat of a disadvantage physically to them just because we are so much younger so playing tought defence and forcing them to shoot from outside will be crucial for us if we are going to win, OLeary went on to say.

Elsewhere in the Nivea Womens SuperLeague there is a an all-Dublin clash Clontarf as Killester tak on a DCU Mercy team that will be trying to recover from a deflating cup semi-final loss last weekend.

In Limerick, defending champions UL Huskies will be favourites to get the win against Liffey Celtics while Meteors and WIT Widlcats play out what looks like being a close affair in Colaiste Iosagain.

Super League Round 5: Killester beats Belfast Star by two after a very close game - 1 day ago
There were just five rounds played in Regular Season of Super League and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places. The most exciting game of round 5 in the Super League took place in Belfast. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 5th ranked Belfast Star (3-2) to eighth ranked Killester (3-2) 75-73 in the game for the fourth place. Luis Garcia-hoyos orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 1...   [read more]
