Lorcan
Murphy
The most important game in the last round took place in Tralee between third ranked UCD Marian (6-2) and fifth ranked Tralee (6-2) on Saturday night. UCD Marian was defeated by Tralee in a tough game on the road 74-79. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of UCD Marian. Tralee moved-up to third place, which they share with UCD Marian and UCC Demons. Tralee is looking forward to face league's second-placed Swords Thunder in Dublin in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. UCD Marian will play at home against UL Eagles and is hoping to win this game.
Super League top team - Templeogue (8-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed eleventh ranked UL Eagles (1-7) in Limerick 113-64. The winners were led by the former international forward Michael Bonaparte (196-82, college: Coll.of the Ozarks) who had that evening a triple-double by scoring 22 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and Lorcan Murphy supported him with 34 points (!!!) (on 15-of-19 shooting from the field). Templeogue's coach Mark Keenan felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds by French guard Jonathan Dogbo (193, college: Gannon) did not help to save the game for UL Eagles. Undefeated Templeogue have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 8-0 record. UL Eagles lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the eleventh place with seven games lost. Templeogue will play against Moycullen (#8) in Galway in the next round and are hoping to win another game. UL Eagles will play on the road against UCD Marian in Dublin to get more than just one victory in their record.
The game in Galway supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Swords Thunder (7-1) played at the court of 7th ranked Moycullen (2-5). Swords Thunder smashed Moycullen 102-79 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Jose Maria Gil who had a double-double by scoring 29 points, 23 rebounds and 4 blocks (on 13-of-17 shooting from the field). Paul Freeman produced a double-double by scoring 16 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists for the hosts. Swords Thunder have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 7-1 record behind leader Templeogue. Moycullen at the other side keeps the seventh place with five games lost. They share the position with Belfast Star. Swords Thunder will meet at home Tralee (#5) in the next round. Moycullen will play against the league's leader Templeogue in Dublin and hope to secure a win.
The game in Dublin was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked UCC Demons (6-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Eanna (2-6). UCC Demons managed to secure a 5-point victory 86-81. UCC Demons have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to third place, which they share with UCD Marian and Tralee.

DCU Saints - Belfast Star 78-82

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams in Dublin where 9th ranked DCU Saints (2-6) were defeated by tenth ranked Belfast Star (2-5) 82-78. Strangely DCU Saints outrebounded Belfast Star 50-25 including a 25-5 advantage in offensive rebounds. They brought some defensive toughness making 7 blocks. American forward Dillon Stith (200, college: St.Vincent) orchestrated the victory by scoring 28 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. International forward Keelan Cairns (211-92, college: Pennsylvania) contributed with a double-double by scoring 25 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. International center Martins Provizors (202-87) replied with a double-double by scoring 29 points, 22 rebounds and 5 assists (on 12-of-13 shooting from the field) and Latvian forward Arkadijs Makarenko (194) added 12 points and 6 rebounds in the effort for DCU Saints.
