Another busy weekend of Basketball Ireland Super League action is in store this weekend as a full complement of fixtures gets underway this Friday evening. First up will see Cup champions Griffith Swords Thunder travel to Belfast on Friday at 8pm where they will take on home side Belfast Star. Both teams are playing a double header of fixtures this weekend, with Swords then welcoming KUBS to the ALSAA on Saturday evening, while Belfast Star will travel down to table toppers Templeogue on Sunday afternoon in what is set to be a hotly contested match. Elsewhere, there are some interesting line-ups in store, with all eyes on Tralee on Saturday evening as Garvey's Tralee Warriors take on Pyrobel Killester at home. Having lost just one game at home so far this year - to League leaders Templeogue - this is a must-win clash for Tralee, who currently sit just one spot above Pyrobel Killester on the League table and they will be hoping they can hang on to their coveted top four spot this weekend. Killester meanwhile, have two games in hand on Tralee and will be hoping a win down in the Kingdom will help them on their path to leapfrogging Mark Bernsen's charges on the table.
It's an all Dublin affair for UCD Marian meanwhile, as they face off to DCU Saints, while SSE Airtricity Moycullen play UCC Demons and Radisson Blu UL Eagles face Commercial.ie Eanna in a must-win game for UL. There will be four games played in the Women's Super League meanwhile, and it is set to be yet another crucial weekend of games as the positions for second, third and fourth place change every week. DCU Mercy - who currently sit second on the table - will be watching proceedings closely as they have a week off from playing, but snapping at their heels will be fourth place (on points difference) Maxol WIT Wildcats who will be hoping to secure a win over Portlaoise Panthers in Waterford Saturday evening. Meanwhile, it's a repeat of the Hula Hoops National Cup final in Leixlip on Saturday evening as League leaders Ambassador UCC Glanmire face third place Courtyard Liffey Celtics, while bottom of the table Meteors welcome Pyrobel Killester and Singleton SuperValu Brunell are home to NUIG Mystics in what is set to be a very close tie on Sunday.

Kieran Donaghy (198-G/F-83) was the star of the show in Letterkenny today as Tralee swooped home to glory and scooped the silverware in the final of the Basketball Ireland Men's Champions Trophy. It was a thrilling finale in Donegal as Donaghy drove down the court and laid the ball up in style to send another epic battle with Regular Season champions, Templeogue, to overtime (66-66).

Kieran Donaghy (198-G/F-83) was the star of the show in Letterkenny today as Tralee swooped home to glory and scooped the silverware in the final of the Basketball Ireland Men's Champions Trophy. It was a thrilling finale in Donegal as Donaghy drove down the court and laid the ball up in style to send another epic battle with Regular Season champions, Templeogue, to overtime (66-66). That last gasp bucket was just one story of many that can be told from today's game, with Jason Killeen (211-C-85, college: Augusta) shining brightest for Templeogue in one of the closest Men's Super League clashes of the year. The story, however, lies with Tralee and the glory of their achievement and it is one that will be told for many years to come. From Donaghy to Trae Pemberton (193-G-92, college: Maryville, MO) - a guard who has dazzled for the Kingdom throughout the season - to Goran Pantovic (208-F-91, college: Drexel), the team worked as a unit throughout and managed to hold on in the dying seconds to add another page to the history books. It was Pemberton who stepped up to the mark with 7.8 seconds on the clock in overtime as they trailed Templeogue 73-70 and as hearts dropped around the court when his first effort did not find the mark, Donaghy was on hand for the offensive rebound to feed Pemberton once more and he made no mistake second time of asking to tie it yet again, 73-73. With double overtime looming, Donaghy had the final say of the game, adding a free throw in the dying seconds and it was with bated breath for all of Kerry as they watched the clock tick down in agonizing fashion.
