Basketball Ireland Detailed Results: November 18th-19th 

Basketball Ireland Men's Super League:

The ALSAA played host to a cracking Men's Super League clash on Saturday evening as Griffith College Swords Thunder welcomed UCD Marian for a tough top of the table clash. 

Swords came into the game off the back of a hugely impressive win over Garvey's Tralee Warriors, and despite trailing most of the game thanks to a fantastic performance from Marian's Mike Garrow and Mario Markowicz, managed to pull it back and go on to win 93-86 in an explosive fourth quarter.





Elsewhere, Black Amber Templeogue had the edge over Garvey’s Tralee Warriors in the battle of the kingdom, as Lorcan Murphy, Mike Bonaparte and Stephen James impressed to send the red army home to victory. A blistering third quarter from the Dublin side - which saw them outscore the hosts 25-13 - was enough to seal victory, despite the best efforts of a top-scoring Trae Pemberton. 



Mike Bonaparte - who bagged 15 of his side's third quarter points, also reacted to a big win in Tralee. 




Indeed, it was a weekend of big games, as Éanna overcame Pyrobel Killester in a thrilling Dublin derby - a superb second half comeback proving to be the foundations for victory. Top scoring from Garny Garcia Nivar and Aidan Dunne brought Éanna back within one point of Killester to ensure a nervy finish.


Emmet Donnelly was the hero of the hour for DCU Saints meanwhile, as his buzzer-beating shot saw them pick up a thrilling two-point win over UCC Demons, 80-78. 

Meanwhile in Galway, Moycullen's clash with Belfast Star lived up its billing, and proved to be a tense and competitive affair - with Star just pipping the hosts in the end, 75-80, while Maree got their second win of the season running out winners over KUBS on Sunday afternoon.
