Basketball Ireland Men's Super League

UCD Marian are back at the top of the Men’s Super Leagues after an action-packed weekend of games across the league.

Indeed both Super Leagues and the Men’s Division One are set for thrilling finales to the season, with a number of teams still in the running to claim the regular season title.

Marian stormed back from last weekend’s loss to Pyrobel Killester in style, winning out in convincing fashion (72-46) against Dublin neighbours Éanna on Thursday evening, before playing out a cracking game of basketball against Tralee in a top of the table clash on Saturday evening. Huge displays on the night from Tralee’s Goran Pantovic and Trae Pemberton were just not enough in the face of sharp shooting from UCD’s Dan James, Barry Drumm and Conor Meany, which saw them eke out an 86-83 point win in the closing minute.

“It was a really, really difficult game,” UCD’s Ioannis Liapakis said afterwards.  “Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to prepare the team for it as we had a game Thursday, but the main thing we needed to remember was what happened last year, where we were 25 points ahead and we lost the game.




“It doesn’t matter if you play 39 minutes really well, you have to play 40 minutes really well and that’s what happened today. They played well, we played well and it was great game for everybody to watch, but in the end, I think we wanted it a little bit more.


“There is no safety net unfortunately, we lost that a few weeks ago. Now, every loss counts. We’re still really far away from winning the league so we have to go step by step. The only thing we care about right now is the next practice on Monday.”

Griffith College Swords Thunder meanwhile maintained their second place spot on the table with a 20-point victory over Moycullen at the ALSAA on Saturday evening, while sheer grit won out for Black Amber Templeogue to see them win out 74-70 against Belfast Star. They are now in fifth place by point difference on the table, with Pyrobel Killester just above them in fourth after winning out 79-72 over Maree in Galway.

Elsewhere KUBS secured their first win of the season over DCU Saints in a cracking nail-biting finish. A last gasp shot from Kevin O’Hanlon saw them run out 87-86 winners.


Sunday afternoon saw UCC Demons overcome Éanna in another nail-biting finish at the Mardyke Arena. The game’s fate wasn’t decided until the final seconds as Adrian O’Sullivan’s buzzer beater saw Demons finish the game ahead 74-73.

Basketball Ireland Women’s Super League

Over in the Women’s Super League meanwhile, Courtyard Liffey Celtics remain at the top of the table after a convincing win over Maxol WIT Wildcats on Saturday evening. Top scoring from Devon Brookshire, Aine O’Connor and Erin Bracken saw Celtics in control by half time, and they powered out to win out by 73-47 in the end.

All eyes were on Portlaoise on Saturday evening for the big midlands derby between rivals Portlaoise Panthers and IT Carlow Basketball. Portlaoise came out on top the last time these two sides met down in Carlow, but revenge was sweet for Martin Conroy’s charges this time around as Carlow won out 70-59. Pyrobel Killester also had a big win on Saturday evening, running out 95-38 point winners over NUIG Mystics in Clontarf.

"It was a massive win for us yesterday," head coach Martin Conroy said. "The extra numbers we had meant the girls could go longer into the game without gasing out. We’ve been playing well recently but were getting hurt down the stretch in games. Last night we had a huge start to the fourth quarter that put 16-points between us and Panthers and our defence was superb all game so I didn’t think we let it slip. I’m hugely proud of our girls and the way the approach each game. The team mentality is what keeps us going."
