Hula Hoops Men’s National Cup - Pat Duffy Cup: 

Griffith Swords Thunder, KUBS BC, UCD Marian, Pyrobel Killester and Templeogue all booked their spots in the next round of the Hula Hoops National Cup folllowing wins for each of them this weekend. 
For Swords, it was with relief that Head Coach Dave Baker saw his side dig deep and overcome last weekend’s six point deficit to Irish TV Tralee Warriors to win 77-64 on the day.
“The win feels great – I’m over the moon. We knew that Tralee were going to come in tonight and throw everything at us. We didn’t want to focus too much on the six-point deficit but to try and win each quarter instead. Our focus all season is to try and get back to the Cup final, we had such a great experience there last year, but we know we’ve a tough test in the next game - another battle,” he said.

said DCU Head Coach Mark Ingle, who was glad to see his side take home victory this time having been defeated by Meteors in the opening game of the League earlier this season.  

“It was a tight game today, a bit tense on both sides and a very good game of basketball, we went up well then they pulled it back, it was tough but I’m delighted with the win. We’ve a break now next weekend, and then we head down to Cork to take on Ambassador UCC Glanmire which we’re really looking forward to."
