Hula Hoops National Cup finals preview

The last weekend of January is rolling around and that can only mean one thing - it's Hula Hoops National Cup basketball finals time!
Eleven thrilling finals will tip off this coming weekend at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght from Friday evening (January 27th) when the Wheelchair Basketball Final between Fr Mathews and NI Knights gets proceedings underway at 6pm. The games will run out across the remainder of the weekend, with some very interesting match ups in store.
The Men's National Cup final tees up a much-anticipated clash between Pyrobel Killester and Griffith Swords Thunder. The last time these two sides met in the Men's Super League was on New Year's Eve, with Swords coming from behind in the fourth quarter to power through and win by 21 points in the end.
Swords are in their second Cup final in-a-row, having been defeated at the death by Templeogue last year and will be relishing the challenge that this weekend brings. Isaac Westbrooks will be leading the charge from the point, but will need support from key players Jose Maria Gil Narbon, Justin Goldsborough, Kevin Lacey and Alex Dolenko to try and overcome an extremely determined Killester.

Killester meanwhile are looking forward to being back on one of the biggest stages in Irish basketball and will be hoping they can put the ultimate crown on their club's 50th anniversary celebrations this year when they line out on Saturday night. They will be looking to players such as Jermaine Turner, Cian Nihill, Peder Madsen and Ciaran Roe to bring their experience and skill to the fore on the night.
The Women's National Cup final is yet another interesting match up, as reigning Cup champions Ambassador UCC Glanmire prepare to defend their title and successfully complete their bid to win four Cup titles in-a-row (and their seventh overall). Glanmire have been dominating the women's Cup basketball scene in recent years, and Grainne Dwyer, Aine McKenna and Claire Rockall will prove key for them this Sunday evening if they are to overcome Courtyard Liffey Celtics.
Liffey Celtics are preparing for their first Cup final at this level and are relishing the underdog tag and have no fear going into this game as, with nothing to lose, they will be aiming to close down Dwyer, McKenna and Chantell Alford and will look to the impressive Jazmen Boone, Karen Mealey, Emma O'Connor and Ailbhe O'Connor to succeed in this task.

Some interesting games await in the Men's Presidents Cup and Senior Women's Cup too, as BFG Neptune - who have three finals to contest this weekend - will hope to have enough fire power to overcome Shane O'Meara's charges at Ej Sligo All-Stars. Marble City Hawks meanwhile will need Kelly O'Hallahan and Katie Fox to be on form if they are to overcome Ulster Rockets on Sunday afternoon in the Women's final.
There are a number of ones to watch in the Under 18 and Under 20 finals as well, with talented young stars including Ali Cleary and Ash McCann of Pyrobel Killester, Anna Brennan, Nicole Clancy, Rachel Huijsdens, Maeve O'Seaghdha, Bronagh Power Cassidy and Elizabeth Black (DCU Mercy) and Annaliese Murphy, Louise Scannell and Jayne Fitzgerald (Ambassador UCC Glanmire) sure to make their mark. In the Men's underage finals, KUBS and Neptune face off against each other at both age groups, and Eoin McCann, Kevin Hughes, Marcus Black and Shane McCann (KUBS), Adam Drummond, Cian Heaphy, Adam Heaphy, David Murray and Sean Jenkins (BFG Neptune) will make a big impression on the games.
Some interesting match ups also await in the Men's and Women's NICC finals, with a very experienced Blue Demons facing off to UCD Marian, while the clash of Michelle Aspell and Michelle Fahey in the Women's NICC final as Limerick Celtics and Maree BC go head-to-head will be one to watch. Session 3 tickets (Saturday evening) are now sold out, with Session 4 almost sold out as of 3pm on Thursday afternoon. Tickets for the games are available at
