Basketball Ireland Weekend Review

In the Nivea Womens SuperLeague, UL Huskies captured their third straight regular season crown defeating WIT Wildcats in Waterford on Friday night.

Unlike in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague, the Nivea Womens SuperLeague will be decided by playoffs, meaning that while Huskies achievement is noteworthy, it was certainly never the ultimate goal.

We had a look at our strength and conditioning again and lifted quite heavy this week getting ready for playoffs so Im happy with where we are at and the fact that we got a win this weekend while looking ahead a little bit, said head coach James Weldon.

We play DCU next week and might face Waterford again in the playoffs so great to get the win on the road against them when we might see them in our place in a few weeks.

While Huskies have top spot locked up, the fight for playoff positions is very much alive. It was important therefore for Wildcats to bounce back from Friday nights loss with a win on Saturday versus Liffey Celtics.

Wildcats duly defeated Celtics 35 points to 60, moving them up to fourth in the table and guaranteeing themselves one of the six playoff places.

On Sunday, DCU Mercy overcame a superb start to the game from their Dublin rivals Meteors to run out fourteen point winners 71 to 55.

We came out in the third quarter and made shots. We had a 22 to 11 run which was probably the winning of the game, said Mercy head coach Mark Ingle.

We have UL next week but it doesnt really matter for playoff positions so we will use that to get ready for what will be a home quarter final for us and try to get better each week as always.

Elsewhere, Team Montenotte Hotel Cork proved too good for a gutsy Ulster Rockets. The ladies from Glanmire overcame a half-time deficit to win by 12 in Belfast while there was a win also for DCU Mercy and Singleton SuperValu Brunell.
