Detailed Results


Basketball Ireland Men's Super League

TEMPLEOGUE saw their winning streak at the top of the Basketball Ireland Men’s Super League come to an end this weekend as they lost out 88-82 to UCD Marian in a nail-biting game in the National Basketball Arena.


The two sides were neck-in-neck throughout the game, with UCD driving into an early 17-9 point lead midway through quarter one and an impressive display from Mike Garrow saw them ahead 47-42. A comeback from Templeogue seemed to suggest that they would go on to win, but UCD had other ideas and a fantastic fourth quarter display saw them take the victory, 88-82. 



Pyrobel Killester, Garvey’s Tralee Warriors and DCU Saints all winning their respective games in the Men’s Super Series at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght on Sunday. Pyrobel Killester looked in control throughout their tie with Belfast Star, holding a comfortable 51-30 point lead at half time and drove on to a 71-56 point victory. 


Tralee and SSE Airtricity Moycullen went head-to-head in the second game and though Tralee were without the services of Kieran Donaghy, an incredible display from Trae Pemberton saw them home to victory as he netted a whopping 41 points on the day. 



DCU Saints took the spoils against Commercial.ie Éanna in the last game, turning over their loss the last time the two sides met to win 80-55.

 


Sunday saw another two more games aside from the Templeogue game, with Griffith Swords Thunder easing to victory over Radisson Blu UL Eagles, with the ever-impressive Isaac Westbrooks guiding the win throughout. That was Eagles’ second loss of the weekend having gone down to KUBS On Friday night. 


KUBS meanwhile just didn’t have enough to close out and win against UCC Demons in the second game. The last time these two sides met, Demons just pipped KUBS, so it was set to be another close game and it certainly lived up to its billing, with the sides drawing level numerous times throughout the game. Demons showed that extra bit more experience though to push out and win 72-66 in the end.

Basketball Ireland Women's Super League

Maxol WIT Wildcats were the team that finally broke Ambassador UCC Glanmire’s winning streak at the top of the Women’s Super League on Saturday evening, as they overcame the league leaders in a thrilling game in Waterford. 

Wildcats, who now have Jillian Hayes at the helm, were delighted with their dogged and determined performance that saw them pull back a win from the side who knocked them out of the Cup in a close game just before Christmas. Indeed, Glanmire will need to regroup this week as they prepare for the Hula Hoops National Cup final clash against Courtyard Liffey Celtics next Sunday but for now, this victory is all Wildcats’ as they keep their semi-final hopes alive.

“We’re delighted,” said new Head Coach Hayes. “The girls were really, really upset after the Cup game as they had been in the lead for most of it, but Glanmire got a few huge shots at the end to win, so everyone wanted this game, everyone was ready for it. We’ve been working towards this game for the last three weeks and it paid off in the end. It was anyone’s game in the last few minutes so it was great to see Wildcats hanging in there and being able to close it out. Grit and determination won the game.”
