U18 men 3x3
The 2018 Ireland Under 18 men’s team that will compete at this year’s FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup qualifiers in Italy this August has been announced today by head coach, Paul Kelleher.
Speaking about the announcement, Coach Kelleher said: "It was hard to look beyond the core of last year's team that did so well a year young last year. Darragh, David and James played so well and have learned and excelled at this game. Cian Heaphy was a wonderfully unexpected addition, as his recovery hadn't enabled him compete for the 5v5 game, but he got some goods ahead of the 3x3 trials.
“We have length, size, athleticism, experience, defence and scoring. All great attributes to hopefully be successful in Bari, Italy and qualify for Hungary in September."
The Ireland U18 men's 3x3 team 2018 is:
Cian Heaphy, Colaiste an Phiarsaigh, Neptune BC
Darragh O' Sullivan, Colaiste Choilm, Neptune BC
David Murray, Presentation Brothers, Neptune BC
James Beckom, Bentonville High School, Arkansas, USA
The squad will compete in Bari, Italy on August 3rd and 4th.
