Another tight game in store as Inter travel to Galway seeking revenge
BASKETBALL:One weekend after playing out a thrilling overtime battle, Moycullen and Dublin Inter will square off in Galway tomorrowwith another tight and tense affair expected in the Nivea for Men’s SuperLeague.
With the venue switching from the National Basketball Arena – where Moycullen persevered by three points a week ago – to NUI Galway, the men from the west will be confident of getting their fifth win of the season and forcing their way into a tie for fourth place with DCU Saints. With fourth place almost certain of securing a spot in the end-of-season Champions Trophy, this pre-Christmas match could prove crucial come March.
Inter, however, will know that while they have just two wins so far this season, they are well capable of getting a victory. Their first season in the top flight has seen them improve weekly and they have become a match for any team.
Indeed they will feel hard-done-by not having won last week, having missed a free throw late in regular time. It is yet to be seen if they can reproduce the same level of passion in Galway, where Moycullen draw perhaps the largest crowd in the SuperLeague.
In the Nivea Women’s SuperLeague, two of the true heavyweights of the game meet in Limerick as UL Huskies play host to Team Montenotte Hotel Cork.
Elsewhere Killester and Ulster Rockets play a mini two-game series as the teams meet first in Clontarf in Dublin tomorrow night before playing the return leg in Belfast on Sunday.
