Basketball Ireland Super League Preview:

'This game is going to be a huge challenge,' admitted Mick Thompson, Commerical.ie Eanna's Head Coach as his side prepares to face off to table toppers Templeogue in the Men's Super League this weekend.
'We're missing one of our main scorers, Luke Thompson, but this is a local derby and our players are definitely up for it,' he continued.
Indeed as all teams prepare to face back into Super League action again this weekend, Templeogue will be hoping that they can do enough to make it a lucky 13 this weekend, as they finished off 2016 with 12 wins from 12 games.
Head coach, Mark Keenan, however was preparing for a tough local battle this weekend.
'A local derby always raises team's games,' he reflected. 'We want to keep our momentum going and won't be taking anything for granted. We had a very tough game at home last season against Eanna so we won't be underestimating them. We do have more room to improve and we aren't forgetting what happened to us at this stage last season, so I believe that will drive us on for our remaining games.'
An interesting clash also awaits in the ALSAA on Saturday evening as Griffith Swords Thunder gear up to host UCC Demons.
"Saturday, we host Demons who, being honest, embarrassed us earlier this season in the Mardyke so we're hoping to return the favour," said Swords' Dave Baker. "It should be a great game."
Elsewhere, UCD Marian will welcome Belfast Star, while KUBS travel to Kerry to face Garvey's Tralee Warriors, Pyrobel Killester are away to SSE Airtricity Moycullen and Radisson Blu UL Eagles face off to DCU Saints.
In the Women's Super League meanwhile, Courtyard Liffey Celtics travel back to Cork to face Singleton SuperValu Brunell in the League on Sunday afternoon.
'We're really excited to be heading back to Cork this weekend to play Brunell,' said Head Coach Mark Byrne. 'We know they've some really good players and an excellent coach, so we're expecting a really tough challenge. After the Cup semi-final win last weekend, the mood in the camp is fantastic. We're excited to be heading to our first Cup final but we know that we have to park that for two weeks now and be 100% focused on the League.'
Brunell's Francis O'Sullivan was also preparing his charges for the game as they attempt to bounce back from last weekend's Cup semi-final loss to Ambassador UCC Glanmire.
'We got back to work on Monday after the Cup weekend and our priority now is our League status,' he stated. 'The players have worked hard and showed a great attitude after our Cup defeat, so we're excited about the second round of the League and have a lot to play for.'
Reigning Cup champions Glanmire will also play at home in Cork this weekend, and aim to continue their impressive unbeaten run at the top of the League when they welcome Portlaoise Panthers to the Mardyke on Sunday.
'We're delighted after the weekend and we're expecting a really tough game from a vastly improved Portlaoise team,' said Glanmire Head Coach, Mark Scannell. "They're strong and physical and we'll need to be at our best to match them - we want to keep our unbeaten run going.'
Portlaoise's Peter O'Sullivan was not daunted by the task ahead against the table toppers: 'I'm really looking forward to the second half of the season,' he said. 'We've won our last there League games to put us right in the mix for a play off place. Facing an unbeaten Glanmire in the Mardyke will be a tough test, especially after their emphatic win in the Cup last weekend, but we've nothing to lose and we'll go in with the same attitude as we always have in that we can put it up to the best teams in the country on any given day."
Meanwhile in the third game of the weekend, DCU Mercy will welcome Meteors to the National Basketball Arena on Sunday in a game that follows on from the re-fixed Hula Hoops Women's NICC semi-final between Muckno Lakers and Limerick Celtics which tips off in the Arena at 1pm on Sunday.
