In what was the only InsureMyVan.ie Super League fixture to be played this weekend due to Ireland’s FIBA Basketball World Cup 2027 European Pre-Qualifier with Switzerland, Maree recorded an 84-58 triumph over Bright St. Vincent’s in the Kingfisher Sports Arena to take the outright lead in the South Conference.

The hosts hit the ground running in this game, taking a 16-point lead by the close of the first quarter and extending that to 27 heading into the fourth.

Terence Lewis II enjoyed a big game for Maree, emerging with 23 points and 10 rebounds, while Tahmir Gadsden and Kyle Carey added a further 33 against a St. Vincent’s side who still had four players on double figures, including William Jenkins with 17.

“It was always going to be tough against a strong St. Vincent’s side” said Maree head coach, Charlie Crowley.

“We knew that if we didn’t bring our best, we’d be in trouble, but, in fairness to all the lads, they put the shoulder to the wheel and reaped the rewards of it.

“We’re now fully focused on next weekend’s trip to Tralee” he insisted.
