UCC Demons seek rebound from first loss


BASKETBALL:After their first loss of the season a week ago to UL Eagles, UCC Demons will be looking to rebound against a dangerous Killester this weekend in the latest round of Nivea For Men’s SuperLeague action.

After that loss Demons are off the top of the table and it will be interesting to see what leaders emerge in the squad as they travel to Clontarf on Saturday evening.

Their opponents, Killester, lost by 21 points in Galway to Moycullen last Saturday, before beating UCD Marian in UCD by 10 points on Sunday. Defending champions UL Eagles have replaced Demons atop the league and have the benefit of a home game against young challengers Moycullen on Saturday to help cement their position.

Also on Saturday Bord Gáis Neptune, the closest challengers to the top two, host the inconsistent UCD Marian in Neptune Stadium.

The final game on the weekend ticket pits DCU Saints against Dublin Inter, a rematch from the first game of the year, when Inter produced a shock win.

In the Nivea Women’s SuperLeague, WIT Wildcats take on one-loss Team Montenotte Hotel Cork, while Killester and UL host Liffey Celtics and Meteors respectively.

On Sunday, DCU Mercy play Ulster Rockets.

Saturday: Men’s SuperLeague Killester v UCC Demons, IWA Clontarf, 6.00; Bord Gáis Neptune v UCD Marian, Neptune Stadium, 7.00; DCU Saints v Dublin Inter, DCU Complex, 7.00; UL Eagles v Moycullen, UL Arena, 7:30. Women’s SuperLeague: UL Basketball Club v Meteors, UL Arena, 5.00; Team Montenotte Hotel Cork v WIT Wildcats, Upper Glanmire Sports Centre, 7.00; Killester v Liffey Celtics, IWA Clontarf, 8.00. Sunday: Women’s SuperLeague DCU Mercy v Ulster Rockets, DCU, 3.30.
