Basketball Ireland Weekend Review

The weekend just past in Irish basketball saw UL Eagles lift the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague trophy for a second straight season on the same day that ULs womens team, UL Huskies, accepted the Nivea Womens SuperLeague regular season title for the third year running.

Meanwhile there were noteworthy wins for UCD Marian, DCU Saints, Killester and Bord Gais Neptune on the mens side, while Ulster Rockets, Team Montenotte Hotel Cork and WIT Wildcats all notched up victories heading into the womens playoffs.

Nivea For Mens SuperLeague

While their victorious homecoming celebrations may have been tempered by an upstart Bord Gais Neptune, UL Eagles can look back at a memorable weekend that saw the Limerick side capture the 2012/13 Nivea For Men s SuperLeague title.

The defending champions secured one of Irish basketballs most coveted trophies on Friday night with a win over Dublin Inter at the National Basketball Arena.

Having already let one opportunity to win the Nivea For Mens SuperLeague slip through their fingers a week earlier, head coach Mark Keenan was relieved to finally put the title race to bed.

We were all relieved to finally get the job done, said Keenan, who added that the speculation that they might blow the title served as motivation for his squad.

The players read the stuff on the Basketball Ireland website and other places questioning if we were going to blow it and I think that helped focus the minds and gave us a bit of motivation. We were very focused Friday night.

Despite that focus, Eagles trailed early in the game before benefiting from a major surge either side of half time that helped them win the second and third quarters by a combined 17 points.

On a night when their influential centre Jason Killeen led all scorers with 21 points, that push proved crucial as a late Inter comeback fell short with Eagles finishing winners by eight points.

I was never worried that we couldnt get it done. Inter are a good team but when we changed up to zone defence it broke their rhythm, said Keenan of the match.

As the party for Eagles began, Keenan was able to reflect on another season that has ended in a Nivea For Mens SuperLeague title. It is also his second straight back to back achievement having led Killester to the same mark in 2009 and 2010.

This Eagles team is as good as any other team I have coached, lauded Keenan.

We may not play up to our talent as much as wed like to but when we do, we are as good as any team that I have been with.

Neptune obviously did not get the message that Saturday was to be a Limerick celebration however and led by an inspired Mike McGinn, they toppled the champs on their home court 77 to 81.

Despite admitting that Eagles possibly didnt have much left in the tank after Friday, Neptune head coach Mark Scannell was still delighted with the result.

We needed this heading into [the Champions Trophy]. We had lost three in a row and that wasnt like us.

We have had a bad stretch since winning the cup and we know we cant just turn the tap on and off when we want. We have another tough one to finish the regular season in Galway against Moycullen coming up and we need that to get us ready.

While Neptunes place in the Champions Trophy is guaranteed after their cup triumph in January, several teams are scrapping for fourth and the final spot in the tournament.

Two of those teams are Killester and Moycullen, who met in Clontarf Saturday night, with the Dubliners getting the best of a physical affair.

Our depth was probably a key factor in the end, remarked Killester head coach Tom Doherty as he digested his teams 10 points win that leaves them right in the hunt for fourth.

We arent thinking about who needs to win or lose for us to go through. Leading up to this one we were totally just focused on we have two games left, lets win those and if we get through then great.

Whether they are focused on it or not however, Killester will need DCU Saints to drop a game if they are to advance. Saints showed no signs of letting up however when they toppled UCC Demons in Cork on Sunday afternoon, winning 73 to 80.

The result means that Saints now need just one win from their two games this coming weekend to wrap up fourth. They play Dublin Inter on Thursday before a rematch with Demons again on Saturday.

Elsewhere, UCD Marian continued their red-hot streak to record their fourth win in a row as they took down Dublin Inter 83 88 in the famed Oblate Hall in Inchicore. While the run comes too late for them to challenge for a place in the Champions Trophy, the south side Dublin club have shown why they were ranked so highly prior to the season.
