Basketball Ireland Men's and Women's Division One Weekend Round Up

Basketball Ireland Men’s Division One


LYIT Donegal continue their great start to the league with a 94-84 point win at home Saturday afternoon against their North West rivals EJ Sligo All-Stars. The Sligo side managed to keep the game close throughout with a fantastic scoring outing from Alvero Romo who tallied 34 points, but LYIT had an answer to every scoring run from the All-Stars.

Tradehouse Central Ballincollig remain top of the league and undefeated with a 64-84 away win over Waterford Vikings. The Cork side got off to an early lead and didn’t let it go. There was balanced scoring across the team for Ballincollig, but the stand out performance was from Ciaran O’Sullivan who scored 28 points. The Vikings battled hard throughout and a prolific scoring performance from Michael Grassey (35 points) was not enough to get the Waterford side back in the game.

Ulster University got the win at home Saturday afternoon against McGowans Tolka Rovers, running out 87-79 point winners. The game started off close, but Ulster managed to create a 45-38 point lead at the half. Tolka rallied back, going into the fourth quarter they were down just 63-60. Ulster managed to extend their lead in the fourth quarter with the help of Kadeem Smithen (25 points) and leave Tolka Rovers searching for their first win of the season.

IT Carlow Basketball got a 98-84 win over Limerick Celtics in a closely fought game. A strong showing from Jordan Fallon played a key role in the Carlow side getting the win. Limerick side kept in touching distance for most of the game due to the fantastic scoring performance from Carlos Hortelano (40 points) and Kevin Oberweiser (32 points), as they entered the fourth quarter IT Carlow were able to keep the Celtics at arm’s length through some nice scores from Kevin O’Donoghue and James Butler.

Portlaoise Panthers lost out at home to Scotts Lakers St Pauls Killarney.

Overtime was needed to separate the winner between the two unbeaten sides, Team Tom McCarthys St Marys and Trinity Meteors. The teams were trading leads throughout the game, with Trinity holding a 31-37 point lead at the half. Edel Thornton and Lauren Grigsby lead all scorers with 23 a piece for the meteors, to keep the Dublin side in contention and to force overtime.

Ulster University remain undefeated after a home win over NUIG Mystics. Kollyns Scarborough was instrumental for the Ulster side as she tallied 33 points in a fantastic performance.

Portlaoise Panthers get the home 83-66 win over Phoenix Rockets Saturday. Rockets managed to keep the game close at the half with the score 36-32 points in favour of the home side. The game remained close going into the fourth quarter, due to Kayonna Lee 21 points keeping the Rockets in contention.

Fabplus North West struggled against a traveling Tipperary Knights team, the game started close with Tipperary having a narrow 14-15 point lead at the end of the first quarter. Courtney Michelle Strait (27 points) play helped spark a second quarter performance for the Knights that continued to the rest of the game, Roise and Shelby Tobin performing well on both ends of the floor helped cement the win.
