Basketball Ireland Men's Division One Round Up

Tradehouse Central Ballincollig finish 2019 still unbeaten at the top of the Men’s Division One table thanks to a 64-85 point win over Portlaoise Panthers in Portlaoise on Sunday afternoon. Andre Nation and Ciaran O’Sullivan led the charge for the visitors as they drove into a big 14-31 point lead at the end of the first quarter, and continued to dominate at the half, leading 24-47. Good displays from Mantas Vilimas and Sean Condon of Portlaoise just wasn’t enough in the face of a clinical Ballincollig side, who head into 2020 with a perfect 13-0 record. 

Limerick Sports Eagles earned a convincing 67-101 point away win over Waterford Vikings, with Reece Dupler and Diarmuid O’Shea leading the charge with a combined 43 points. Craig O’Neill put on a strong display for the Vikings, but a huge defensive performance and clinical offensive execution saw Eagles run out comfortable winners in the end.

EJ Sligo All-Stars pushed second-placed Fr Mathews all the way on Saturday evening, but lost out by six points in the end, 70-76. Sligo edged the opening half, leading by five at the break, 42-37, thanks to scoring from Alvaro Romo and Carson Long. Fr Mathews dug deep though and big scores from Jarvis Pugh and Luke O'Mahony pushed them back in front in the fourth quarter. Sligo tried their best to rally back but Mathews had the momentum, and converted their free throws down the stretch to help them home to victory.

Scotts Lakers St Paul’s Killarney ran out winners over IT Carlow Basketball on Saturday afternoon, with Toby Christensen and Brian O’Neill shining for the Kerry side, as they saw home a 70-111 point away win. Kevin Donohoe put on a good showing for IT Carlow Basketball, but St Paul's offensive performance kept them in the lead throughout and they won out well in the end.
