Superleague Preview / Sean Jenkins MVP at Haris Tournament as Ireland Win. - Dec 30, 2016

The Men's Super League teams will be ringing in the New Year with a bang this weekend as fixtures get back underway following the Christmas break.

First to take to the court will be Garvey's Tralee Warriors on Friday evening as they welcome Cork neighbours, UCC Demons to the Sports Complex in Tralee. The game marks a big test for Demons as they look to regroup following a loss to Belfast Star in the last round, and with both teams sitting neck-in-neck on the table with seven wins and four losses apiece, it looks set to be a very competitive game indeed.

'It's a huge game for us,' Demons Head Coach, Tim O'Halloran acknowledged. 'The two of us are 7 and 4. We had a bad loss up in Belfast the other week, I thought we were cruising in that game, but we just let it slip in the third quarter.

'I wasn't planning on being 7 and 4 at this stage of the season,' he admitted. 'I thought maybe 9 and 2, but it is what it is. There are a few good teams out there with some good professionals, so we just have to keep our heads down and keep battling. Tralee will be tough - they have six or seven steady players, and have a few others such as [Kieran] Donaghy and young [Ryan] Leonard so they are going to be very strong. It's always a tough place to go.'

Elsewhere, KUBS - who secured their first win of the season against Eanna just before Christmas - are heading to Galway on New Year's Eve to face off to SSE Airtricity Moycullen.

'The Eanna game was a good win and will hopefully give them the confidence to win two or three more,' said KUBS Head Coach, Mark Ingle. 'I don't think we were ready for Moycullen the last time we played them but we have come on an awful lot since then with hard work, so hopefully we can get a lot closer to them now.'

Also looking ahead to the game, Moycullen Head Coach John Cunningham stated: 'It's an unusual day for a game, but given that we have the Cup semi-final the following week, it actually suits us well. KUBS have been improving and had their first win just before Christmas and we would have to be another 'target win' for them. Despite us winning comfortably against them in the end in Dublin, the game was very tight for three quarters. However, I have faith in our guys to deliver again.'

Radisson Blu UL Eagles meanwhile will be hoping to take some points from their clash against Belfast Star on New Year's Eve, as they are currently bottom of the table with just one win from 11 games, while Star are sitting in eighth spot off the back of a big win over UCC Demons.

New Year's Eve will also see two big Dublin derbies, with Griffith Swords Thunder welcoming Pyrobel Killester and the unbeaten Templeogue playing at home to DCU Saints. Swords sit second on the table with nine wins from 11 games, having most recently lost out to table toppers Templeogue, while Pyrobel Killester are coming into the game off the back of a hard-fought win against DCU Saints. Templeogue meanwhile are still the team to beat with 11 wins from 11, but DCU will be hoping they can secure themselves some vital points.

Ireland U18 Men crowned tournament champions in Manchester
Dec 29,2016

Teams :England Under-18s
Ireland Under-18s
Worcester Academy, Massachusetts, USA
City of Edinburgh U18, Scotland
Nova School, Malaga, Spain
Sligo All Stars, Ireland
Derby Trailblazers Under-18s, England
Manchester Magic Under-18s, England

'I'm completely overwhelmed,' were the first words Ireland Under 18 Head Coach, Conor James said this evening, as his side overcame Worcester Academy, USA, 103-91 in the final of the Haris Tournament in Manchester to be crowned tournament champions.
'I've never seen anything like the way the lads played today before in my life - it was brilliant,' he continued.
Indeed, it's been a glorious journey for the squad the last two days as, following on from an opening round loss against Derby Trailblazers in the tournament, they went on to beat England and Sligo All-Stars in the remaining two group games to top Group B and book themselves a spot in the semi-final earlier today against Edinburgh.
'The win against England was unbelievable yesterday - we were the underdogs,' James reflected. 'We knew they were going to come out and think they could walk over us, but we had more talent and played to our strengths and they weren't able to stop us, so we gave them a bit of a rude awakening I think."
Indeed, the semi-final today was not for the faint hearted either, as Ireland won out by just one point over Edinburgh in the end (79-78) following a nail-biter to get through to the final.
'To go on from that win over England then and beat Edinburgh in the semi-final earlier today, that was a nerve-wracking game as there was only one point in it," James continued. "We had big motivation for the final. These lads are by far the most talented group of lads here. They ran so hard, they attacked hard, they put everything into it and were pretty good at their free throws in the final too, which got us over the line. Sean [Jenkins] got MVP of the tournament, which was brilliant, and Adam Drummond got an All Star so it just goes to show how much these lads impressed,' he added.
'Getting to work with them has been brilliant. The one thing that we as a coaching staff said is that these guys have put 12 years of hard work and training in to get them this far, so it was up to us to guide them that bit more of the way and offer them advise, but really, they are a fantastic squad and hard work has paid off.'
