Three Galway Mens Teams Commence National Basketball League

Maree meet Ulster University this Saturday (30th September) in the opening round of the Men’s Super League. 

Tip-off at the Kingfisher is 7pm.  Maigh Cuilinn travel to Garvey’s Tralee Warriors from 7.30pm.

Titans begin Division 1 against Limerick Sport Eagles.  That’s at 6pm in Knocknacarra Community Centre.  In the Women’s Super League, University of Galway Mystics head to Gurranabraher Credit Union Brunell on Sunday at 2.30pm.


With one sentence Irish international and Energywise Ireland Neptune star Jordan Blount has ignited the torch paper beneath the opening game of the InsureMyVan.ie Super League.

Beaten InsureMyVan.ie Super League finalists from last season Maree welcome back Charlie Crowley as head coach for a third season at the helm, but gone are the spine of their InsureMyHouse.ie National Cup victory in Jarrett Haines and Rodrigo Gomez. Ulster University make their way to Galway in the opening round still surfing the crest of their promotion wave.

Elsewhere Garvey’s Tralee Warriors are hoping a bounce back season begins with victory at home to Maigh Cuilinn (Moycullen).

Gurranabraher Credit Union Brunell matched DCU Mercy on the opening weekend of the Miss Quote.ie Women’s Super League for the widest margin of victory in a very promising start for the Kyaja Williams, Edel Thornton, Jayla Johnson axis.

The trio combined for 72-points in an offensive display that will have given University of Galway Mystics head coach Paul O’Brien a midweek headache. Mystics will have to address their rebounding (-22) and outside shooting (25%) if they want to gain their first win of the season on the road in Cork.
