Basketball Ireland Weekend Review

In one of the most dramatics weekends in recent memory, UL Eagles let a golden opportunity to wrap up the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague title slip through their fingers as they lost to a red-hot UCD Marian in Limerick.

Eagles took to the court knowing that a victory would win them the league after their closest challengers UCC Demons had suffered a shock loss in Galway to Moycullen.

Despite the incentive of achieving a historic repeat, the home side started flat and let the men from Dublin jump out to an early lead. Apart from a purple patch late in the first half that actually had them leading at the break, Eagles played second fiddle to Marian for most of the contest with the visitors up seven entering the closing minutes.An inspired Rob Taylor, who finished the game with 29 points, wouldnt let his team lose that easily and converted an incredible three point shot to give the defending champions some hope late.

Big scores from Dan James and Thomas Viglianco for Marian quickly quelled that comeback however with Marian going on to win by six, 72 78.

We played great team defence all game. The overall effort from the team was absolutely fantastic, commented Marian head coach Fran Ryan afterwards, who did single out the efforts on one player in particular.

Barry Drumm was just brilliant for us. He came in and changed the whole tempo of the game and pushed the fastbreak.

They (Eagles) had a good run either side of halftime but even then we felt like we had taken their best shot and were still with them, so we felt good about that and always had confidence we were going to win, added Ryan.

While Eagles are still top of the table with just two weekends to go, the loss will frustrate their players and fans knowing that a win would have sealed the clubs first back to back Nivea For Mens SuperLeague titles.

They had been handed that opportunity this weekend after their closest challenger, UCC Demons suffered a shock loss in Galway to a young Moycullen team.

Busy chasing fourth place and the final spot in the Champions Trophy, Moycullens work effort and fast paced style of play eventually proved too much for Demons as the westerners emerged victorious by five points, 85 80.

We played with great desire all game, said Moycullen head coach Salva Camps.

We were first to every loose ball, won the rebound battle and got up and down the court quicker. A lot of people might say that Demons have more talent than us on paper but I thought we out-worked them and Im very proud of all the players for their effort.

To round of the weekend of upsets, Bord Gais Neptune lost at home to Dublin Inter to make it a losing weekend for all of the three top teams in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague.

Standing in for the absent Irmantas Griskas, Inters temporary head-coach Toomes Iives pointed to his teams improved fitness as a reason for the win.

We are definitely in much better shape now than when we first came up to this league at the start of the season.

We fell off in the second half a lot before this but not now and not in this game. We kept on pushing after being in control early on. It did get close towards the end but we kept our heads, unlike in other games, said Iives.

The only fixture on Sunday handed Moycullen a chance to make it two wins from two and put them in themselves in the driving seat for fourth place. However a determined DCU Saints proved too much for the westerners, winning 56 72.

We had been playing well but had not won in four games so to get the win here is great, especially after Moycullen had won such a big game the day before against Demons, said Saints head coach Dave Donnelley.

We got the ball inside well I thought and when they collapsed we kicked to shooters who made their shots.
