Great weekend for Galway teams in National Basketball Leagues

There was a clean sweep for all four Galway teams in action over the weekend in the National Basketball Leagues. In the Men’s Super League, South Conference leaders Maree defeated Ballincollig 83-69 in the Kingfisher Sports Arena on Saturday night. Damaria Franklin hit 26 points and Tom Dumont weighed in with 19 for the Galway lads, as Maree surmounted the challenge of the defending champions. “The games have been so tight and this one was no different,” said Maree Head Coach, Charlie Crowley. “We look forward to playing Moycullen next Sunday”, he added. Maree’s opponents next weekend Maigh Cuilinn beat UCC Demons on Sunday by 87-78, setting up a mouth-watering derby match next Sunday afternoon at 3pm in the University of Galway Kingfisher. In the Women’s Super League, Shannon Cunningham hit 13 points down the stretch, as University of Galway Mystics turned an eight-point deficit into a 75-61 victory over Portlaoise Panthers to register their first league win of the season. In Division One of the Men’s League, Titans kept Killarney Cougars rooted to the foot of the table with a narrow 82-80 victory and will go to Drogheda Wolves next Saturday night.
