Basketball Ireland Weekend Preview

UL Eagles stand on the cusp of a second straight Nivea For Mens SuperLeague title this weekend, needing just one win from their two games to lift the coveted trophy.

Meanwhile it will be out with calculators in the Nivea Womens SuperLeague as the final weekend of the regular season has thrown up some tantalising playoff possibilities depending on results Saturday night.

For UL Eagles fans, all eyes will be on the National Basketball Arena on Friday when their team take on an in-form Dublin Inter.

A win for Eagles and they are champions for 2012/13, a loss and the pressure will mount on a team that have already let one chance to wrap up the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague slip through their fingers.

We are definitely not looking past Friday night, insisted Eagles head coach Mark Keenan, who will lead out his charges again the following day at home against Bord Gais Neptune.

We are bitterly disappointed that we didnt finish things last weekend but even by Monday at training, the mood was good in the team.

There is no such thing as waiting until Saturday and trying to win the league at home. We want to win it Friday night and well be gunning to get it there and then.

Eagles opponents, Dublin Inter, have enjoyed a superb run of form recently, topped by their stunning win in Cork last Saturday versus SuperLeague Cup Champions Bord Gais Neptune.

They are really finding their feet now and theyve had some huge wins recently, said Keenan of Inter, who are currently coming to the end of their first ever season in SuperLeague.

They have quality players and we will have to keep battling for a full forty minutes if we want to win.

Should Eagles fail to rise to the occasion on Friday night, they will get one more bite at the cherry this weekend when they host Bord Gais Neptune on Saturday.

The SuperLeague Cup champions have suffered a small dip in form recently and are on a three game losing streak but will know that they have what it takes to defeat Eagles after getting the better of the sides recent Cup final meeting.

Waiting in the wings should Eagles fall are UCC Demons who play a DCU Saints side on Sunday that are busy chasing fourth place and a spot in the end of season Champions Trophy.

The Dublin side had a huge win last weekend in Galway over their closest challenger Moycullen, gifting them a head to head advantage that could prove crucial.

Its really tight and every game is really important. We played good defence last weekend after being in trouble with referees a lot in the weeks prior. Well need another game like we had in Galway to get a result Sunday, said Dave Donnelly, head coach of Saints.

They have firepower all over the court so all we can do is to make them work for what they get.

Donnelly will no doubt be casting an eye over the Killester v Moycullen matchup Saturday night as both teams are lurking dangerously behind in fifth and sixth place.

While both teams would need to win out as well as have Saints drop two of their remaining three games to steal fourth, considering the topsy-turvy season so far, nobody is counting out either side just yet.

We have just two games left so we will give them everything. Then, we will pray that Saints lose a couple, said Moycullen head coach Salva Camps, who has led his young Galway team to their best ever record in the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague.

Saints have three very tough games left and it is very possible for them to lose two. We need to try our best to take care of our business and if we lose let it be because we didnt get the breaks, not because we didnt prepare thinking the season was over.
