DETAILED RESULTS Hula Hoops Men's National Cup - Pat Duffy Cup:
Pyrobel Killester 51 Griffith Swords Thunder 72 National Basketball Arena
Report: Ross O'Donoghue
That's the funny thing about Swords. It's not the sharp edge that does the damage, it's the man at the hilt. For the 2017 Hula Hoops Men' National Cup winners, Isaac Westbrooks new exactly when to parry and when to go for the kill. His Griffith Swords Thunder side saw off Pyrobel Killester 72-51 at a packed National Basketball Arena. Watching from his half-court seat, President Michael D. Higgins might have wondered if he could have been a point guard in his day. Looking down at Westbrooks, it would have occurred to him to leave it to the professionals.
Westbrooks was up against friends and teammates from his old club. A Killester trio of 2010 National Cup winners all started the game with Al Casey captaining the side alongside Peder Madsen and the indefatigable Jermaine Turner. Coach Brian O'Malley elected to use the 42 year old sparingly in the first quarter as Thunder built up a seven point lead through 20 year old Charlie Coombes.
It was Killester's young guns who brought them back into contention as Paddy Sullivan let fly with his first touch of the game for three points. Turner's reintroduction late in the first brought with it his first and only Superman impression of the evening either side of an 'and-one' play. 17-15 to Thunder at the end of the first.
Only four players on the Griffith Swords Thunder squad had competed in the club's maiden final in 2016. New recruit Alex Calvexe chipped in from outside while American duo Justin Goldsborough and Conroy Baltimore rotated to put the squeeze on Turner who did manage to kick out to Cian Nihill for an open three late in the second. It looked destined to be a low scoring game but with 27 points off the bench, Dave Baker's side had enough fire power for a six-point lead at half-time.
Killester had failed to score from play in the last four minutes of the third. A block, steal and rebound by Jose Gil Narbon teed up six points on the run and it was the Spaniard who clinched the MVP award.
If Swords were to be bested, Killester would need Turner's tomahawk. Instead it was Westbrooks with the killer blow. He fooled everyone in the Arena with a midair switch to Alex Dolenko for an open triple. Less than a minute later, he repeated the trick for his seventh assist of the night.

BFG Neptune: 97 EJ Sligo All-Stars: 85 (Saturday, January 28th, 2017, National Basketball Arena)
Report: David Naughton
BFG NEPTUNE secured their second National Cup of the weekend as they were victorious 97-85 in a tremendous team effort over EJ Sligo All-Stars in the Hula Hoops President's Cup Final. Neptune were lead by their talisman Sean Jenkins who finished with 32 points, along with Gary Walsh who made 5 three pointers at crucial times. The game started off at a very fast pace with both teams getting scores in the opening thirty seconds. As it usually tends to be for teams that play in the Arena, it took a few minutes for the nerves to settle for both Neptune and All-Stars. Sligo's Oisin O'Reilly and their American, Kaylim Noel both got scores early while Gary Walsh made a bright start for Neptune. Noel began to turn up the intensity, showcasing his ability to drive at the defence and pull up for three. Neptune's Sean Jenkins made a statement of his intent by scoring 8 points in just four minutes on the court. Adam Drummond of Neptune made a three just before the buzzer to reduce Sligo's lead to eight at the end of Q1; 21-29.
Noel made another three to start the second quarter as well as he finished the first. Both Neptune and Sligo exchanged scores during the opening minutes of the second quarter. Noel made his fourth three of the half to give Sligo a ten point lead but after a couple of scores, Neptune's American, Tanner Brooks, made a three to bring the lead down to four. Neptune scored another three to bring the lead to two in the last minute of the quarter. It was looking like Sligo All-Stars would lead going into the break until Neptune's Gary Walsh made a huge three from half court to tie up the game; 49-49. Sean Jenkins scored a three at the beginning of the second half to give Neptune the lead for the first time since the first quarter. Neptune coach Paul Kelleher must have had some words of wisdom for the men from Cork as they built up a seven point lead, causing Sligo coach Shane O'Meara to call a timeout in an attempt to settle his players. Neptune began to build a lead and they had big shots from Sean Jenkins and Tanner Brooks. Brooks made a huge block to keep Neptune's lead at 7 heading into the final quarter; 74-67. Lovely link-up play from Neptune's Shane Duggan and Sean Jenkins lead to them keeping their lead. Luke McLoughlin made a layup on the fast break under immense pressure from the Neptune defence to claw at the Corkmen's lead. Neptune began to build up a lead again and it was the man of the hour, Sean Jenkins who made it his responsibility to get big-time scores.
The last couple of minutes were as tense as could be. Sean Jenkins scored with 1:40 left on the clock to put Neptune up 9. Neptune began to play with the clock until Gary Walsh made his fifth three pointer of the game to put Neptune up 10. Sligo tried to get back in the game but time was not on their side as Neptune secured their second cup of the weekend, winning 97-85.

Blue Demons: 78 UCD Marian: 72 (Saturday, January 28th, 2017, National Basketball Arena)
A TIGHT and competitive Men's NICC final saw Blue Demons hold firm to finally take the spoils after a thrilling fourth quarter finish that saw the sides neck-in-neck right up to the final buzzer.
Indeed, it was a close and tight game throughout, and quarter one saw UCD Marian in the lead, with Mark Ryan netting 14 points in style early on and Shane Egan adding to their tally with 10 well-taken points in a fast-paced and lively quarter. Demons weren't too far behind though, with a big spread of scoring and good rebounding from Luke O'Mahony seeing it end 21-27 to UCD at the end of the first. The second quarter was just as close, with Shane McCarthy and Niall O'Reilly proving crucial for Blue Demons, keeping UCD to under 10 points for the quarter to drive into the lead, with Shane Coughlan also adding points. Good defence by Demons saw them take the lead and went on to have the advantage 44-36 at half time.
A stronger third quarter display from UCD brought them right back into it, with Shane Egan and Ryan proving crucial at both ends of the court, while Luke O'Mahony, Shane Coughlan and Shane McCarthy were core for Blue Demons to help to maintain their lead in the face of a good UCD hustle, to see just six in it going into the last, 62-56 in favour of Demons. A fantastic fourth quarter had fans on the edge of their seats as just five point separated the sides for most of the quarter. UCD tried to close the gap on numerous occasions with Shane Egan and Mark Ryan working hard to keep the scores coming in and Demons out but Coughlan, O'Reilly, McCarthy and Ryan Murphy proved just too much.
BLUE DEMONS:Ryan Murphy (16), Shane McCarthy (14), Shane Coughlan (16), Robert McGowan, Dylan Olden, Daniel Thompson, Niall O'Reilly (15), Luke O'Mahony (14), Cian Clernon, Stuart Rodgers, Shane O'Connell, Kyle O'Mahony, Craig Duggan (2).

BFG Neptune retained their Hula Hoops U18 Men's Cup title despite a battling performance from KUBS with a 90-73 win at the National Basketball Arena. Eoin McCann's 37 points kept the Dubliners in touch for long periods but a disciplined cohesive performance proved Paul Kelleher's side to be worthy champions with the MVP award going to Cian Heaphy.
Sean Jenkins showed his prowess inside and out in the opening exchanges for an 11-point quarter. KUBS saw no need to hit the panic button and Donal McKay calmly stroked home a three-point opener with Jordan Fallon strong under the basket. Eoin McCann needed all of his athleticism to go hard and add the extras, but for all KUBS' toil they were still 28-17 down for the first period.
BFG Neptune were punishing every turnover that came their way and they had the better of the open looks with Cian Heaphy draining his first three-point attempt.
Neptune went to their bench in the second quarter for some extra zip from the Hannigan twins and Robert Cahill netting one from the top of the key. Conor Ennis came in for KUBS while McCann notched a double-double with some bullish offence and strong work on the boards.
The Cork men were still ultra-efficient and their zone defence looked imposing until the hot hands of Jordan Fallon changed the momentum of the game. His perimeter shooting brought the crowd to their feet and a 12-0 run reeled in Neptune's 18 point lead to a two-possession game.
It looked telling that the last basket of the half went to Sean Jenkins for a 50-42 lead, but KUBS burst into the third quarter with a 5-0 run. The noise only switched back to the blue half of the crowd when Cian Heaphy made a three that sparked the defending champions back into life. Jenkins, Murray and Drummond combined on the rest of the 11-0 run. KUBS hung in there with stirring resolve to trail 69-57 for the final stanza.
Ultimately it was BFG Neptune's strength in depth and cup winning knowhow that won them the day. They had 19 points off the bench from with nine players scoring and Liam Chandler's monster dunk early in the fourth left the crowd in no doubt that the Cup was returning to Cork.
BFG Neptune: Adam Drummond* (20), Cian Heaphy* (18), Sean Jenkins* (19), David Murray* (8), Liam Chandler* (6), Scott Hannigan (3), Jake Collins, Ciaran Fitzgerald, James Hannigan (6), Darragh O'Sullivan (8), Robert Cahill (2), Ronan O'Driscoll.

(Saturday, January 28th, 2017, National Basketball Arena) Hula Hoops Under 20 Men's Cup final KUBS: 75 BFG Neptune: 86 (Sunday, January 29th, National Basketball Arena) BFG Neptune made history on Sunday afternoon in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght as they stormed home to their third Hula Hoops National Cup final in as many days following a thrilling 10-point win over KUBS in the Men's Under 20 final. Indeed this afternoon's game was simply the icing on the cake for a team that has been dazzling spectators in the Arena all weekend. First, they overcame KUBS in the Under 18 final on Friday night, before going on to overcome Ej Sligo All-Stars in a nail-biting President's Cup final on Saturday evening and today, it was three from three as the side - powered by an MVP performance from Adam Drummond - stormed home to glory.
As expected, the first quarter opened with a thrilling back-and-forth display, culminating in dazzling plays on both ends of the court. Neptune's Cian Heaphy opened his account early, but things heated up when KUBS' Kevin Doran scored back-to-back baskets, first finishing in the key, and following with an aggressive drive to the hoop to keep his side in contention. Marcus Black also shone bright for the Dublin side to tie the sides at 24 apiece going into the second quarter. There was an outstanding volley of three-point baskets by both sides to open the second quarter, but play loosened up and Neptune's Jenkins and Heaphy took advantage with a barrage of drives to the basket, giving them a 10-point lead at the end of the half. Adam Drummond continued to unleash scores from all over the hardwood, culminating his outstanding play with a break-out dunk, but the roar was heard from Dublin's KUBS who responded ferociously to keep the sides close at the half when Carroll drained a three-pointer with 15 seconds on the clock (56-64). Neptune again were out of the traps to start the final quarter with clinical displays from stars Drummond and Sean Jenkins but yet again, the KUBS roar could be heard and they clawed the margin back to 8 points-a three score difference. As the quarter closed though, it wasn't enough. The explosive Drummond racked up 31 points to earn him Most Valuable Player honours and Neptune took the final, 75-85. As the clock ticked down and the cheers rang out around the National Basketball Arena, the story of the weekend was obvious: this Neptune club travelled to Dublin with domination in mind. The Cork club picked up three trophies in three straight finals over the weekend, with the stars mesmerizing in all three.
KUBS BC: Jack Polion, Robert O'Meara, Eoin McCann (7), Kevin Hughes (6), Kevin Doran (10), Marcus Black (17), Ryan Lawlor, David Quirke, Stephen Allen, Rory Carroll (20), Shane McCann (11), Gabriel Ogundipe.

Naturalized American Forward Jermaine Turner (195-F-74) put on an amazing game in the last round for Killester, receiving a Usbasket.com Player of the Week award for round 22. The 42-year old player had a double-double of 27 points and 15 rebounds, while his team beat Eanna (#11, 5-16) 89-75. Killester maintains the 5th position in Irish Super League. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Killester will need more victories to improve their 13-8 record. In the team's last game Turner had a remarkable 61.5% from 2-point range. He has many years of experience at Killester, through which he has constantly improved. Former Dowling College star has very solid stats this year. Turner is in league's top in points (5th best: 20.7ppg), rebounds (4th best: 12.5rpg) and averages impressive 1.7bpg and 55.1% FGP.
The second best player in last round's games was 25-year old American Mike Garrow (193-G-91) of UCD Marian. Garrow had a very good evening with a double-double of 23 points and 25 rebounds. Bad luck as UCD Marian lost that game 66-94 to slightly higher-ranked Swords Thunder (#2, 18-3). It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the title. UCD Marian still maintains its place in the top 3 of the standings, even despite this loss. His team's 16-5 record is not bad at all. Garrow is a newcomer at UCD Marian, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was Latvian center Martins Provizors (202-C-87) of DCU Saints (#8). Provizors showcased his all-around game by recording 21 points, sixteen rebounds (!!!) and five assists in the last round. Despite Provizors' great performance DCU Saints lost 64-76 to slightly higher-ranked UCC Demons (#6, 11-10). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of DCU Saints not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 14 games, recording just seven victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Provizors could try to bring DCU Saints' a little bit higher in the standings. Provizors has individually a great season in Ireland. After 19 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 21.1ppg (4th best) and rebounds with 16.7rpg (#1 in league). He also has 1.5bpg and FGP: 69.5%.
Other top performing players last week: 4. Paul Freeman (201-F-83) of Moycullen - 22 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists 5. Lorcan Murphy (182-PG-94) of Templeogue - 31 points and 5 rebounds 6. Jason Killeen (211-C-85) of Templeogue - 27 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists 7. Justin Goldsborough (203-F) of Swords Thunder - 18 points and 12 rebounds 8. Dustan Moreira (202-F-89) of UCD Marian - 21 points and 10 rebounds 9. Isaac Westbrooks (189-PG-85) of Swords Thunder - 9 points, 7 rebounds and 14 assists 10. Michael Bonaparte (196-F-82) of Templeogue - 25 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists
The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc. The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy. The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
Basketball Ireland Detailed Results Basketball Ireland Men's Super League TEMPLEOGUE WILL be awash in a sea of red for the next few days as the men's Super League team stormed to a 96-93 point win over Garvey's Tralee Warriors at Oblate Hall this evening. This win, coupled with their midweek win over Pyrobel Killester, was enough to see them safe at the top of the table and they were officially crowned Basketball Ireland Men's Super League Regular Season champions 2016/17. 'Absolutely thrilled - we had to really dig deep after a slow start, maybe the occasion, maybe a bit nervy, but once we got going the boys were amazing,' said Head Coach Mark Keenan. 'We pulled that out of the fire. Our defense wasn't up to scratch early on, so we knew that needed to step up and it did. 'You're there and thinking is this one getting away from me? And then we put in that effort and I'm just over the moon and a little bit speechless - it's hard to take it in now.' While Tralee stormed into an early 17-31 point lead, Lorcan Murphy was the star of the second quarter for Templeogue, urging his team on with superb scores to close the gap to 48-54 by the half. It remained neck in neck throughout the third and fourth, with the real story of the game coming down to the last minute, which saw Mike Bonaparte soar through the air for a massive offensive rebound with 58 seconds on the clock and netted the ball home to send Templeogue into a three-point lead. Trae Pemberton took to the free throw line at the other end, and with the battle of the free throws well underway, it soon was back to a one-point game (94-93). However, Bonaparte was on hand to keep a cool head in the last 20 seconds, as he went to the line to shoot two and netted them with panache to see Templeogue home to their first League title, 96-93. Elsewhere, Mark Ingle's charges at KUBS are relishing the prospect of a showdown with Commercial.ie Eanna next Saturday evening, as they overcame Belfast Star in a cracking game up in Belfast on Saturday to put them on level pegging with Eanna on 15 points apiece. The KUBS win now ensures that next weekend's game will be an all-out battle as it's a must win for both teams in order to avoid relegation. Eanna meanwhile suffered an 89-75 point defeat at the hands of Pyrobel Killester, while SSE Airtricity Moycullen won out over Radisson Blu UL Eagles and UCC Demons overcame DCU Saints, while Griffith Swords Thunder overcame UCD Marian in emphatic fashion.
