BASKETBALL IRELAND WEEKEND REVIEW

After a superb team performance from UCC Demons this weekend, the Cork side return to winning ways in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague with convincing victories over Bord Gais Neptune and Dublin-Inter respectively.

UCC Demons oversaw a resilient Dublin-Inter after they pulled away 88-80. With both teams eager to record a win it was the Cork side that controlled the game from the tip but were kept hot on their heels to maintain the result.

Clearly Demons win over Bord Gais Neptune two nights previous allowed them to play with confidence and conviction as they looked to add more crucial performances to their current record with a 82-75 win over their rivals.

Friday nights Cork derby most definitely invited passion and hunger from Demons after their last encounter with Neptune in the National Cup semi-finals. With the game on their court in the Mardyke Arena a packed out gym was sure to witness an entertaining game.

From the jump the tense atmosphere set the tone for the game as Demons lead the scoring with Kenton Walker & Niall O Reilly stepping up only for Neptunes Darren Townes & Ger Noonan to respond with big scores.

However, the fourth quarter saw the intensity spill over and result in unsportsmanlike fouls and 6 technical fouls, even Demons captain, Shane Coughlan, had to leave the gym after he picked up his second unsportsmanlike when he challenging a loose ball.

When the game finally settled down it was Neptune who took the lead with 2.35 remaining. Nonetheless, Ciaran OSullivan hit two huge three's to give Demons a three point cushion with a minute remaining. Demons continued to push and in the end ran out winners.

Speaking about the games, head coach Paul Kelleher said, We played well in both games and in fairness to the team, we have been putting in great performance but this weekend we got results.

We seem to have bounced back and are building our confidence back up. Against Inter, we went up 15/16 points on three different occasions with everyone chipping in and adding to the score-line.

We are back playing the way we did for our first 8/9 games. Right now we are focused on the post-season and are looking to challenge the Champions Trophy.

Meanwhile, another local derby was in full swing on Saturday night when Killester travelled to DCU Complex to take on DCU Saints. Both sides have ensured testing seasons however, it was the army of black and orange who recorded the win this time as they saw off the Saints 76-71.

Tom ODoherty, head coach of Killester said, It was a very close game from the start but in the last quarter we came into our own and kept the lead coming down the stretch.

Even though we maintained the lead near the end we were weary of DCU as they are a team that can come back at any time.

The game was there to be won and we took it. Big performances from Bonaparte and Westbrooks really saw us over the line.

Across the Liffey, southsiders, UCD Marian added another momentous win to their season as they trumped Moycullen 77-55.

Not only was this the teams third win on the bounce but, a packed out gym squeezed into the bleachers as UCD favourite, Niall Meany, played his last home game for his club.

Fran Ryan, UCD Marian head coach enthused, That has to be the best atmosphere I have ever witnessed in Belfield. The entire club came out to support Niall and also to celebrate our last home game of the season. It was great to get the win.

The committee worked so hard to ensure a huge crowd, there was even players there from the 70s and 80s. It was the biggest crowd we have ever had at a home game.

Defensively, we were very strong. We corrected a lot of the mistakes we have been making and offensively, we played some great basketball. Overall, it was a great club night for UCD Marian.
