PREVIEW: We look ahead to this weekend's games

Tralee thriller in store as Swords make the trip to the Kingdom while Glanmire could win regular season title

COUNTY KERRY is the place to be this weekend as one of the most-anticipated games of the week gets underway in Tralee Sports Complex at 8pm on Saturday evening. Garvey's Tralee Warriors are expecting a full house early on as they welcome Griffith Swords Thunder to their stomping ground in what is set to be an absolute thriller.
The last time these two sides met down in Tralee in the Cup, Warriors won out by six in the end (61-55), while Swords returned the favour twice up in Dublin - winning out in the return leg of the Cup and the first round of the League.
'This is a huge game for both teams,' admitted Swords Head Coach Dave Baker. 'Tralee have been great this season, and everybody wants to play down there with the great atmosphere they create, but few get the result there. We've had some injuries recently, but now we're looking forward to this game to return back and play well.'
Tralee meanwhile, are in great form following on from their memorable win against UCD Marian last weekend.
'I've been thinking about this game - I've been thinking about all of our games,' said Tralee Head Coach Mark Bernsen. 'Last weekend, our guys chipped away at UCD's lead and it paid off. They showed grit, a lot of toughness and I was very proud of them. Now, we have to get to work again for this weekend - we'll sort it out and we'll have a good plan in place come Saturday. There's going to be a great crowd in Tralee too, our fans have been brilliant all year.'
Elsewhere, a big north Dublin derby pits DCU Saints against KUBS in St Vincent's on Saturday evening. KUBS come into the game off the back of a win against Pyrobel Killester, while DCU Saints will need to regroup following a thrilling clash with Belfast Star last weekend that saw Star win out in overtime. Pyrobel Killester meanwhile will welcome UCC Demons in what is set to be a must-watch game, SSE Airtricity Moycullen face off to Templeogue, Radisson Blu UL Eagles go head-to-head with UCD Marian while Commercial.ie Eanna take on Belfast Star on Friday evening.
Meanwhile, Ambassador UCC Glanmire's Head Coach Mark Scannell is enjoying his time at the top of the Women's Super League this week, after they overcame DCU Mercy in a close and competitive affair in Dublin last weekend. All eyes will be on Cork this weekend though as, if Scannell's charges win out over NUIG Mystics, they will be crowned Regular Season champions 2016/17.
'I'm delighted we won against DCU,' said Scannell. 'We prepared well for it and the girls were focused all week. We needed a win, we've been a bit…since the Cup - so that win was important. That was a big statement today and now we have to win against NUIG at home this week and if we do, we will win the Regular Season and we will look on to the play offs then.'
Maxol WIT Wildcats meanwhile will be hoping that they can turn their dreams of a top four place into a reality when they welcome second place Courtyard Liffey Celtics to Waterford. Wildcats sit in fifth place behind DCU Mercy and Pyrobel Killester with just points difference separating the sides, but they will need a big performance to overcome a very in-form Liffey Celtics. Pyrobel Killester welcome DCU Mercy in what will undoubtedly be a nail-biter, while Portlaoise Panthers will be hoping to bounce back from their loss on the road last week to Liffey Celtics when they welcome Singleton SuperValu Brunell to St Mary's.

Bernard O'Byrne signs new four-year contract with BI

Secretary General and CEO of Basketball Ireland, Bernard O'Byrne, has signed a new four-year contract with Basketball Ireland, which will run until the end of 2020.
Mr. O'Byrne is delighted to be continuing in a role that he has held since 2011.
'I am really looking forward to the coming months and years. There are a lot of exciting events ahead for Basketball Ireland, most notably this August when we host the FIBA Under 18 Women's European Championships Division B here in Dublin. We are also looking forward to working closely with our new Irish senior men's head coach, Pete Strickland, and his team in the coming months and years.
'The end of 2017 will also be notable for the organization as we aim to be completely debt free for the first time in a number of years. This is thanks in no small part to a strategy that we put in place a few years ago, and we have achieved our target ahead of schedule which we are really happy about, so there's a lot to look forward to and I can't wait to be part of it.'
