Basketball Ireland Detailed Results

Basketball Ireland Men's Super League

It was a busy weekend once more in the Men's Super League as the regular season officially came to a close. KUBS may well be looking at a relegation play off against Ulster University Elks as they suffered an 89-74 point defeat at the hands of Commercial.ie Éanna on Saturday evening. Éanna turned around a poor first half performance to put up a 60-point second half and secure their safety in the Men’s Super League with Neil Lynch the star of the show, bagging 35 points.

Elsewhere, Jermaine Turner bid farewell to Irish basketball in DCU this evening, as he checked out of Pyrobel Killester’s game with DCU Saints with a whopping 35 points. 


Speaking afterwards he said: “You always want to win your last game, to go out like this on top feels even better.

“I will be coming back to Ireland, but not as a player – maybe a coach, a spectator, a commentator, but definitely not a player. To end my last game with my two teams I’m most known for is like something out of Hollywood script, I was so happy to have my last game against a team that means so much to me, so does Killester, so it was good to end it right here, right now.”

UCC Demons won out in a nail-biter against Belfast Star in the Mardyke on Sunday, winning out by two in the end, while there were also wins for Griffith Swords Thunder, UCD Marian, Garvey’s Tralee Warriors and Pyrobel Killester.

Basketball Ireland Men's Division One

MAREE were today crowned Basketball Ireland Men’s Division One Regular Season champions for the second year in a row with a win over Ulster University Elks in Oranmore.

In an extremely close and competitive game, it took Maree until the fourth quarter to put some breathing space between the two sides, with momentum swinging from end to end throughout the game. Good scoring from Kenneth Hansberry and Eoin Rockall sealed the deal in the end for the Galway side, and Maree were crowned champions.




“It feels brilliant. We had a really tough game today, Ulster Elks are a really good team and they really put it up to us,” said a thrilled Head Coach, John Finn. “We were nine points down going into the fourth quarter and played really well to win the game so we’re delighted. I felt that if we could play to our ability we could win, but it wasn’t until the fourth quarter that we played the way we can play.”


In the other games of the weekend, BFG Neptune were crowned Southern Conference winners and secured third place in the Division with a 89-98 point win over Keane's SuperValu Killorglin. 

Elsewhere on Sunday, Team Kilkenny overcame Kestrels, Ej Sligo All-Stars won out over LYIT Donegal and Dublin Lions had the better of Titans.
