“This little town of ours was electric last night,” admitted Garvey’s Tralee Warriors Head Coach, Mark Bernsen, as his side marched to a crucial 86-80 point win over Pyrobel Killester in the Men’s Super League.

“We had our big game here and then we had Kerry playing Mayo in the football so a lot was going on down here and it was just great. It was a good win for us and I thought it was a fair result.

“We made some runs, they made some runs, but we had a nice defensive effort in the first half and good offensive in the second, it was a good win and an important win for us. We still have some big games to come though, so we’re not looking past our next game. It may be a cliché, but at this stage, we’re taking every game as it comes and we’re on the road a good bit and you just don’t know what will happen once you go on the road. It was crucial that we won that game, and I thought we did well."




Elsewhere, Griffith Swords Thunder had less than 24 hours recovery time between their two games but they didn’t let that deter them as they romped home to victory in Belfast on Friday evening, overcoming Star 69-81 before notching 100 points on the scoreboard in the ALSAA on Saturday evening, to defeat KUBS 100-61. Belfast Star also had a double header of games, facing off to the two top teams in the League, and after losing out to Swords at home on Friday, travelled to the Oblates on Sunday afternoon where they lost out 106-78 against League leaders Templeogue. SSE Airtricity Moycullen meanwhile are celebrating a hard-fought win over UCC Demons in Galway where they ran out 85-83 point winners, while Commercial.ie Éanna dashed Radisson Blu UL Eagles’ hopes of getting their second win of the season, as they overcame the Limerick side 61-79. UCD took the spoils from their clash with DCU Saints meanwhile, running out 88-67 point winners.

Basketball Ireland Women's Super League

There were some big results in the Women’s Super League this weekend as well, as Courtyard Liffey Celtics got redemption for losing out in the Hula Hoops National Cup final to Ambassador UCC Glanmire, when they overcame the Cork side 72-65 in Leixlip. There was a big win for Portlaoise Panthers on Saturday evening as well, as they got the better of Maxol WIT Wildcats in a close and competitive clash, winning out 58-63 in the end.


“I’m feeling very relieved,” said Peter O’Sullivan as the final buzzer sounded on a nervy last two minutes of the game. “It could have went either way there, we know that from the game we played against them up in Portlaoise [which went to overtime] and we felt that we had left it behind us back then. We had a few injuries coming into this, so the seven that were fit to play had to step up - and they did. Defense won it for us in the end, there was just three points in it there in the last minute, so we had to go out and have our individual battles and we won those. We’re very happy to get over the line.”




Elsewhere, Pyrobel Killester overcame Meteors on Saturday evening, while Singleton SuperValu Brunell recorded their third win of the League when they overcame NUIG Mystics on Sunday.

There was an interesting weekend of fixtures in the Men's Division One this weekend as the crossover between the conferences continued. ITC Basketball recorded a huge win over Ej Sligo All-Stars in Carlow on Saturday afternoon, with Mike Klinger proving to be the hero of the hour, netting a whopping 41 points on the day. 




This was the side's first win since October, and it was a good day all round for Head Coach Martin Conroy, as the win came just after his Women's Division One side overcame Ulster University Elks to remain unbeaten in the League. 


Elsewhere, there was a very close tie between Keane's SuperValu Killorglin and Maree down in Kerry, with both teams going into the game with just one loss each. A late comeback from Killorglin wasn't enough though, and Maree took the spoils on the day. They will now go on to play BFG Neptune in Galway next weekend in another hugely anticipated clash. 

Meanwhile, Kestrels had the better of Dublin Lions, Fr Mathews secured a win over LYIT Donegal, while Team Kilkenny had the edge over Titans.
