BASKETBALL IRELAND WEEKEND PREVIEW

With the SuperLeague back in full swing, this weekend offers fans up and down the country more thrilling games to watch as the race to be crowned League Champions heats up.

In the Nivea for Mens SuperLeague, all eyes are on Limerick this Saturday evening when the Eagles face off with National Cup Champions, Bord Gais Neptune, marking the biggest fixture of the weekend.

However, DCU Saints kick off the games tonight when they meet Dublin rivals, UCD Marian in DCU Complex. Saints will continue their double weekend as they take on Dublin Inter at home on Saturday. Meanwhile, southsiders, UCD Marian, are also in for a double weekend as they face the challenge of UCC Demons in the National Basketball Arena on Saturday.

Elsewhere in Dublin, Moycullen will make the journey to the capital to take on Killester.

Entering February off the back of an extremely successful month, National Cup Champions, Bord Gais Neptune will travel to Limerick to take on last seasons double champions, UL Eagles.

The last time both teams meet was in the National Cup final in front of a sold-out National Basketball Arena and it was the Cork side who left Dublin with the cup held high. This time around, both teams understand the importance of the game and how it will affect their league status.

Mark Scannell, head coach of Bord Gais Neptune said, This is a must win game for us, if we lost this I cant really see a way back.

Scannell continued, I watched UL play last week and they have bounced back well from their loss in the Cup. Keenan is a clever coach and will learn a lot from the last time we meet so they will be prepared.

We are over the glory of the cup, we have come back down to earth and to basics. With our energy high, we are ready and prepared for the game this weekend.

Echoing Scannells sentiments, head coach of UL Eagles, Mark Keenan, highlighted the importance of the game, This is a huge one for us. We were disappointed with our result in the cup but we need to get a win over Neptune to secure a top of the table position down the stretch.

Before the weekend fixtures begin, tonight will see DCU Saints take on UCD Marian.

As both teams enter the game off the back of a string of losses it will be DCU Saints that will be quietly confident as they already secured two wins over the southsiders earlier this season.

However, head coach of DCU Saints, David Donnelly, is aware of the change in dynamics, The last time we played Marian they didnt have Thomas Viglianco and he is big for them inside. We will have Provizors with us this evening so it will make for an interesting match-up.

On the back of that Dublin derby, DCU Saints will also take on Dublin Inter this Saturday. During their last clash, the game was forced into over-time as Saints stole the win. This time however, Inter enter the game all guns blazing as they have recently secure three win on the bounce.

Speaking about Inter, head coach, Irmantas Griksas said, This is our most important game so far. We set our goal at achieving fourth place this season and we need to win this game over DCU Saints to stay in the running for that spot.

We have worked very hard to get to this position and are ready to take on Saints. Provizors and Emmet Donnelly will provide trouble for us so we know we need to be weary of them and their positive influence over their own team.

Donnelly also said, Inter are on a good run at the moment and we know the pressure they like to bring. We must step up our own defence and be ready to challenge every shot they put up.

Meanwhile, UCD Marian will play their second game this weekend against Corks UCC Demons in the National Basketball Arena.

Demons must secure a win over the Dublin side this weekend in order for them to keep their League Champions dreams alive come March. Coming off the back of a tough loss to UL Eagles last week, Demons will be rearing for the opportunity to set the record straight that they deserve a spot at the top of the table.

Finally for the men Killester will take on Moycullen in the IWA in Clontarf.

Both sides have had patches of good and bad spells this season with their last encountered ending with an impressive victory for the young Galway side.

Nonetheless, Killester will be rejuvenated entering the game as the last time the two teams meet the Dubliners were under different management and without their power-house inside man, Michael Bonaparte.
