Conor Meany and Basketball Ireland

Congratulations to our own Conor Meany on his recent appointment as Commercial Manager with Basketball Ireland. Conor takes a wealth of social media, PR and indepth basketball knowledge to the role and we wish him every success.

December 2nd-4th recap

 

A thrilling win by the Division 1 team was the highlight of the week. A very tough draw saw them having to travel down to Neptune Stadium to face a Neptune team that included former Superleague Star Ger Noonan. Undaunted by the challenge the team managed to pull off a huge win 73-69. Mark Ryan led the way with 26 points and was helped out by Jack Nolan who added 18 and Mike Chubb who scored 11. The team are now in National Cup semi final in January. Well done to John and the team.

The u15s had mixed results with a comprehensive win over Malahide on Friday followed by a tough loss to Templeogue in the cup. Trailing by 1 at half time a tough 3rd quarter allowed Templeogue open a lead that despite great efforts in the 4th we couldn't overcome.

The u14s had a great win on Sunday against Kubs. In a really exciting game a huge basket by Ruairdhi MacDonnacha helped seal the win. 

The Superleague team had a busy couple of days with Eanna and UL both visiting UCD. On Thursday night Conor Meany led the way with 22 points and the guys won by 19 points. After a slow start on Saturday the inside scoring of Dustan, Neil and Mike helped overpower UL and seal another 20 point win. The team are now 8-2 and in 2nd place in the country. There is a huge game next Friday night in UCD and the team need as much support as possible. 

In club news, congratulations to Paraic Moran on making the final 36 of the Irish u15s development squad. Hard luck to Luke Gilleran on missing out narrowly. Both players are a credit to the club and will continue to have lots of success if they keep up their hard work.

Lastly best of luck to D1 player Mike Chubb who is getting married next Saturday. All the best from all of us in the club! 

November 18-20th recap.

 

Another busy week for the club saw some brilliant results and some tough lessons.

Starting the week off Liam Lavelle and the Division 5 team had a big win in Collinstown against Ballyfermot. Some great offense and stellar defense lead to a 61-45 win.

The division 2 team had a tough mid week challenge against an undefeated Bullets team. In a great game the team were disappointed to come up just short on a scoreline of 66-63. Hopefully they will be able to get the win the next time the two teams meet,

On Friday night turnovers cost the u15s as they lost out to a strong St. Vincents team in Oatlands.

The u18s progressed in the Dublin Cup with a narrow win over Kubs. This continues the strong recent form of the team and they will now face Killester in the semi final.

The u16s continue to make progress but came up just short against Killester by 6 points.

it was a tough day at the office for both the u14s and u12s on Sunday. The 14s lost out to a really good Ongar team. They showed great spirit despite going down and lost by only 13 points. The 12s also lost out to Ongar after a tough game. Ongar built an early first half lead but the team managed to get it back to 5 before losing.

The 16(2) team were missing some players and lost out to Portlaoise. Portlaoise had a considerable size advantage and it proved too much to overcome.

Lastly in the underage the u13s went to Galway on Sunday and played some of the top teams in the country from Galway and Cork. It was a real learning experience for the team and will definitely stand to them as they move forward over the next few weeks.

UCD was home to a double header in UCD with the D1 and the Superleague team both in action. The D1 team faced Portlaoise in the National Cup. Led by 23 points from Shane Egan, 15 from Jack Nolan and 8 from Mark Ryan the team managed to win 66-51 and book their place in the 1/4 final. They face Neptune in Cork in the next round.

The Superleague team had a big clash with Northside rivals Killester. A fantastic first half saw us opening a 20 point lead and despite Killester clawing it back we won 74-62. Dustan Moreira lead the way with 24 points but Neil Baynes was the star on the night with 13 points and some great defense on Jermaine Turner. Highlights of the game can be seen here.

Next week the Superleague team are away to Tralee. Tralee average 1,000 fans at each home game so it should be a great occasion. If you want to come and support the team there is a bus leaving from Oatlands and all support is welcome!

We have some exciting news from some of our underage teams. 

Firstly congratulations to Ronan Byrne from the u14s who has been selected on the Dublin u14 panel. 

There have been 51 players pre-selected to try out for the Irish u15 squad and two of our u15s have been chosen. Best of luck to Paraic Moran and Luke Gilleran. (details here)

Lastly Owen Nelson and Jake Owens from the u17s have been selected on the Irish u17 development squad. Hopefully they will be able to follow in the footsteps of their U18 teammate Donal Ring and make the final squad. (details here)

For those who were disappointed not to be selected keep working hard and your day will come.

 

November 11-13th Recap

It was a busy weekend with 8 teams playing over the 3 days. 

On Friday night in Oatlands the u15s got us off to a great start with a convincing win over Drogheda Bullets in the first round of the cup. Unfortunately the Division 1 team came up short away against an excellent Tolka Rovers team.

On Saturday there was disappointment for both U16 teams as they both lost out in the cup. The 16(1) team lost out narrowly to Eanna while the 16(2) team had a tough draw against St. Vincents but accounted for themselves very well despite losing. 

In the u13 league there was a fantastic game over in Kubs which we managed to win while playing some great basketball. 

Also on Saturday afternoon the u18s played away to Tolka B. Unfortunately the refs didn't both show up so we were only able to play a friendly game. We won the game comprehensively and it's another strong step for Mike Clancy's team as they prepare for their National Cup Quarter Final. 

To cap off a busy Saturday the Superleague team were away to St. Vincents in Glasnevin. Things were looking bad going into the 4th quarter with the team trailing by 10 but they managed to win the last quarter by 21 and take the game by 11 points. Mike Garrow led the way with 32 points and Dustan added 23.

Last but certainly not least were the u14s who beat Kubs by a single basket in the cup! Well done guys!!

Next week sees the D1 team in National Cup action on Saturday and the Superleague team facing Killester in UCD at 7pm on Saturday.
