Limerick Basketball sides drawn in Men's and Women's National Cups

The draw for the 2019/20 Hula Hoops National Cup was made today at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght. 

The Men’s Presidents Cup sees holders Tradehouse Central Ballincollig on the road to Scotts Lakers St Paul’s Killarney in one of the most anticipated games of the opening round, while Limerick Celtics will also be on the road as they meet Fr Matthews of Cork. The newly formed Limerick Sport Eagles will be at home to LYIT Donegal. 

In the Women's Division One national cup, UL Huskies will be on the road to the Phoenix Rockers, while Limerick Celtics are in action against Portlaoise Panthers at home. 

There are some interesting clashes in store, as a big Kerry derby looms in the Men’s Pat Duffy National Cup as Keane’s SuperValu Killorglin host Garvey’s Tralee Warriors in what is set to be one of the big games of the opening round. All eyes will also be in Dublin as Griffith College Templeogue host UCD Marian in another big derby showdown, while Cup holders, Pyrobel Killester, have a bye into the next round.
