Tralee go top of the table as Swords go down to DCU Saints
October 30, 2017
Garvey’s Tralee Warriors went top of the Basketball Ireland Men’s Super League table on bank holiday Monday, with an 80-71 point win over Éanna at the Complex in Tralee.
The Kerry team now boast six wins from seven games, having won six in-a-row following an opening round stumble against UCC Demons down at the Mardyke.
Griffith College Swords Thunder meanwhile fell at the hands of DCU Saints for the second week in-a-row, losing out 65-69 at the ALSAA.
Dee Proby ignited the Saints’ offence as they went down by five against Swords in the fourth, and coupled with strong inside play from Provizors, brought the game back level with just minutes on the clock, and Proby kept a cool head at the free throw line in the dying stages to secure the win.
Speaking afterwards, a thrilled head coach, Joey Boylan, was delighted with the result.
Elsewhere, Moycullen overcame KUBS in Galway, with a Brandon McGuire inspired home team running out 93-81 point winners in the end, while Lorcan Murphy top-scored with 28 points in Black Amber Templeogue’s defeat of Maree (104-52) at Oblate Hall.
