Basketball Ireland Weekend Preview

With just three weekends remaining in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague, it remains all to play for as teams chase both the title and a top four finish that would grant passage to the Champions Trophy in March.

The Nivea Womens SuperLeague, which unlike the men will be decided by playoffs, enters its penultimate weekend of regular season play as teams jostle for home court advantage.

For defending Nivea For Mens SuperLeague champions UL Eagles, the task ahead is a straightforward one. Win their remaining games and they lift the title, lose and the door is opened for the chasing UCC Demons.

This Saturday, Eagles face a red-hot UCD Marian team that won three games in nine days last week to reinvigorate a season that had been on the brink of disaster.

We spoke about playing for some self-respect and I have to hand it to the team, for all the changes since Christmas the spirit and togetherness has been terrific, said UCD Marian head coach Fran Ryan, who replaced Sasa Punosevac at the helm in mid-December.

While not realistically in the chase for fourth, Marian are a team on a roll who, having beaten every team in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague except for Eagles this year, will be not be short of motivation.

Limerick is a tough place to go and get a win but we look forward to playing the role of kingmaker a bit and hopefully having a say in who the champion is, added Ryan.

The two teams most recently played out a tense cup semi-final in January, when Eagles eked out an eight point victory, a result head coach Mark Keenan would gladly grab again this weekend.

Winning the league outright is now in our own hands - UCD are a tough team and we just about got past them in the cup semi-final back in early January this year so we will need a full on performance to get the win.

Earlier in the day, Eagles closest challenger UCC Demons travel to Galway on Saturday to face Moycullen in a must win game for the Leesiders.

Two wins from two games last weekend kept their title dreams alive, but only just. Having played an extra game to Eagles they still have one less win and need the Limerick side to slip up if they are to lift the SuperLeague trophy.

Head coach Paul Kelleher has been encouraged by his teams play however and feels like they are finally getting some of the breaks that eluded them earlier in 2013.

In recent months we haven't hit clutch shots when the games were close down the stretch but this past weekend we did make those shots.

We still have improvements to make defensively but this past weekend we showed we are getting back to what we were performing like in our first eight or nine (games), said Kelleher.

This weekend against Moycullen will be as a difficult a task as there is. We are facing a Moycullen team who are still hungry and very much in the mix for the post-season Champions Trophy."

Meanwhile, Moycullen centre Stephen Tummon said that he couldnt think of a win that would be any sweeter than beating Demons.

We have lost an awful lot of close ones to them and they always seemed to catch us at the death with a killer basket. Weve played with a lot more confidence this season and if we ever needed to get a win against them then its this weekend.

Moycullen find themselves entangled with Killester and DCU Saints in a tight battle for fourth and are desperate for their first ever post-season berth. This is the clubs fourth season in the SuperLeague.

A pivotal fixture in that chase for fourth takes place in Galway the following day as Moycullen once again play the role of hosts with DCU Saints coming to town. Having beaten each other once already already this season and tied on seven wins and ten losses, the result will hand the winner what could be a crucial head to head tie-breaker.

The only other game of the weekend in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague pits cup champions Bord Gais Neptune against Dublin Inter in Cork on Saturday night.

While neither has much to play for in terms of league standings both will want to finish strong as Inter look to complete a successful first year at the top level with some more wins while Neptune begin preparations for the end-of-season Champions Trophy, for which they have entry guaranteed courtesy of their cup triumph in March.
