Basketeball Ireland Men's Division One:
Meanwhile in the Men's Division One, it was a busy weekend of action, with wins for BFG Neptune, Kestrels, Sligo All-Stars, Keane's SuperValu Killorglin, Dublin Lions and Ulster University Elks.

BFG Neptune had a 101-59 point win over ITC Basketball in Carlow, but Head Coach Paul Kelleher had mixed emotions about the win.
"We played in a hurried way, not the way we are used to playing," he reflected. "I thought we struggled defensively, we didn't work as hard as we normally do but I thought we did a much better job in the second half - we were more disciplined, we were more composed. We executed things a little bit better in the second, but my practise session is already lined out for next week, I know what we need to work on."

An oft repeated pattern of Basketball in Ireland is the segmenting of teams into a strong top group a significant middle grouping and a third group who from week to week as the Superleague progresses find the likelyhood that they will take one of the top teams on and beat them an unlikely proposition, a scenario where in The United states N.B.A. league it in reality can happen from time to time where playoff teams at least,lose to bottom of the basement outfits and thus make for at least from the fans perspective make every game potentially at least a viable investment of the hard earned dollar. This past weekend's Pat Duffy Cup games results wise mirrored the Superleague early season form of teams and thus continue to make competitions here interesting and more interesting perhaps given the added dimension of it being a 12 team affair as opposed to the more traditional 10 teams.The standout result in the home and away Cup format was the Templeogue win over U.C.C. Blue Demons at 96 plays 87 again pointing to the significance to Demons of the loss of player coach Colin O Reilly to The British Basketball League. Jacob Lawson the new import replacement for Lehmon Colbert though obviously not in the category of the superstars of the 80's (Marion Elie, Mike & Ray Smith, Bob Stephens, Kelvin Troy etc) is strong enough scoring wise to have the team change their approach offensively and focus on separating their offence into 2 and 3 man units as opposed to the sets being run at the minute which has Lawson waiting for things to happen team wise on offence negating his mental alertness and making things difficult for him to operate as best he might when he does receive the ball. In truth with his leaping ability and finishing skills he is potentially a 25/30 ppg average if set up differently. Lawson's defence too is sharp enough for a higher level competition given the opportunity. Table toppers Templeogue (4-0 after beating the now 3-1 UCD Marian the previous week) will in all probability go from strength to strength after establishing a 9 point advantage to take to game 2 against Demons. Tralee too for their part as returnees to competition after a lapse of 7 years continue to impress and for them too the 6 points advantage going into round 2 of the Cup will give them confidence as they continue to grow and develop together as a team unit. They have reignited interest in basketball locally and provide a home atmosphere many opponents will find more and more challenging as the competitions move on. The added advantage of having an import player to chop and change so to speak will too perhaps become significant.
