Basketeball Ireland Men's Division One:
Meanwhile in the Men's Division One, it was a busy weekend of action, with wins for BFG Neptune, Kestrels, Sligo All-Stars, Keane's SuperValu Killorglin, Dublin Lions and Ulster University Elks.
BFG Neptune had a 101-59 point win over ITC Basketball in Carlow, but Head Coach Paul Kelleher had mixed emotions about the win.
"We played in a hurried way, not the way we are used to playing," he reflected. "I thought we struggled defensively, we didnât work as hard as we normally do but I thought we did a much better job in the second half â we were more disciplined, we were more composed. We executed things a little bit better in the second, but my practise session is already lined out for next week, I know what we need to work on."

Basketball Ireland Women's Division One:
There were wins for ITC Basketball and UL Huskies this weekend in the Women's Division One as they overcame the challenges of Fr Mathews and Oblate Dynamos respectively. For ITC Head Coach Martin Conroy, it was an extra special win though.
"We've played Fr Mathews four times in the last two or three years, theyâve beaten us twice in the Cup in very close games, theyâve beaten us in the League twice - this is the first time we've beaten them recently," he stated.
"We showed a lot of character today. All of the girls stepped up to the mark when we needed them to, especially coming towards the end of the game when they started coming back at us, we found our composure again , we moved the ball very well, we hit our free throws and that was the difference between us winning a game and losing a game."
