20 Oct 2014 10:10
Men’s Premier League
-
Killester continued their 100% record this season with an 86-75 win over BFG Neptune in the Premier League.
-
John Behan had 16 points and five rebounds by half-time, while Jermaine Turner hit 20 points in the final quarter to ensure the win.
-
Ricky Taylor made his debut for Belfast Star in their 72-88 loss at the hands of C&S UCC Demons.
-
The 6’5 guard flew in from the US this week after parting company with BBL side Newcastle Eagles.
-
Niall Murphy stepped up to shoot 18 points for C&S UCC Demons, while Lehmon Colbert and Kyle Hosford also dominated.
-
Another jetlagged debutante was on the losing side as Orlando Parker’s 16 points weren’t enough for UL Eagles against DCU Saints.
-
Saints were cohesive in defence while their accuracy from outside the arch was unerring, with Mick O’Dwyer and Graham Brannelly helped themselves to 15 points apiece in the 96-62 win.
-
UL coach Paul Kelleher felt it was too easy for DCU Saints.
-
“We let them do what they wanted,” Kelleher lamented.
-
“We weren’t as aggressive defensively as we have been in the last couple of weeks and we just weren’t clicking offensively. Our timing was off on both ends of the floor.”
-
UCD Marian were on the right side of a 79-56 scoreline against Templeogue to record a first win of the season.
-
Templeogue’s start to the game was much improved on recent performances, but they struggled to contain the athleticism of Marian star Preston Ross, who claimed 20 points and nine boards before sitting out the final stages.
-
Winning Captain Conor Meany is looking for this game to act as a catalyst in his team’s season.
-
“Hopefully we will start rolling now, Meany said.
-
“We lost our first two games in the last seconds, so it was nice to get our first win. We're just taking each week as it comes, so hopefully next week we can get another win up in Belfast.”

Women’s Premier League
-
Singleton Supervalu Brunell went top of the table after recording a 69-51 win over Killester.
-
New recruits Katie Hanneman and Rosie Taylor have added height and scoring prowess to the Nellies this season and American Hanneman hit a game-high 23 points.
-
Killester remain bottom of the table and are now three games without a win.
-
Meteors, who saw off UL Huskies 82-59, took control of the game in the first quarter through the Ganser sisters and the outside shooting of Eimear Mairtin.
-
Huskies had an understrength match-day squad but looked to rally late on through Cathy Grant and Kelsey Harris.
-
Harris hit 16 points but admitted Huskies were likely to struggle, saying: “We tried to push through our disadvantage in numbers but Meteors are a good team and have some great shooters. We improved after we switched to a zone defence so we’ll know what to do when we play them again.”
-
Team Montenotte Hotel came through a tense affair with DCU Mercy 68-54 to maintain their unbeaten run.
-
Claire Rockall notched 16 points for TMH while Grainne Dwyer kept them in contention early on.
-
