Basketball Ireland Weekend Round Up

The Men’s Division One produced some big results across the weekend, with IT Carlow Basketball getting the action underway on Friday night running out 98-72 point winners over Portlaoise Panthers in their midlands derby showdown. A superb display from Panthers’ American, Kareem Davis – who finished out the game with 25 points – just wasn’t enough in the face of a solid Carlow display, which included big performances from Duane Harper, Armands Vaikuls and Conor Gallagher.

Tradehouse Central Ballincollig also got their season off to winning ways, running out comfortable 82-55 point winners of Limerick Sport Eagles. Despite being without the services of American Andre Nation, Ballincollig dominated throughout, opening up a 43-25 point half time lead. Superb scoring from Ciaran O’Sullivan and Spaniard Inigio Zabolo saw them combine for 42 points and despite good work from Eagles’ Vadjikiba Dosso and Reece Dupler, Ballincollig just had too much in the tank.

LYIT Donegal stormed home to a 96-82 point win over Ulster University Elks in an absorbing contest. Dominique Uhl, Emmanuel Payton and Andrew McGeever combined for a whopping 84 points for Niall McDermott’s side as they managed to hold off a big Elks challenge - led by Kyle Dixon – to take home the win.

Fr Mathews also got off to a strong start, winning out 64-73 on the road to McGowans Tolka Rovers. Jack O’Mahony was the standout for the Cork side as, having returned from injury this year, he top scored for the game with 18 points. A determined display from Tolka just couldn’t cut the deficit down and Mathews won out by nine in the end.

Limerick Celtics laid down a firm statement in their opening game, running out 92-85 point winners over Scotts Lakers St Paul’s Killarney in a thrilling clash. Carlos Hortelano led the way for the hosts, finishing out with 32 points, and was well supported with a combined 36-point display from Davide Bellinzona and Kevin Oberweiser. Killarney’s Aaron Jackson was also to the fore with 31 points, but it was Limerick who kept the edge down the stretch and held on to win.
