Basketball Ireland weekend round-up
16 Mar 2014 19:07
The final four teams to compete in the Men’s Champions Trophy were finalised after both DCU Saints and JM&L Auctioneers Titans progressed when they overcame Men’s Division One League Winners, Maree and Men’s Premier League side, Bord Gais Neptune, respectively.
This weekend, DCU Saints were forced to work hard for their win when they made the trip to Galway but eventually came out on top 63-83, Eoin Quill putting in a stellar performance by netting a cool 27 points for his side on the night.
Head coach of DCU Saints, David Donnelly, said, “It was an intense game and our 20-point win does not reflect the closeness of the game at all, it was very competitive from start to finish.
“We did start the game strong and went 10-0 so that ten point lead acted as a buffer for us throughout the game. Although we went up 20 points early in the fourth quarter they pulled it back to nine points at one stage but we managed to stretch it out once more.”
However, the surprise result of the weekend was the Men’s National Shield Champions, JM&L Auctioneers Titans, defeating the Premier League side, Bord Gais Neptune. Many believed the Cork side would sail into the next round but the character and skill of Titans was too much for them to overcome.
