UL Eagles men's basketball created history yesterday by winning the
Southern Conference of the Nivea for Men Superleague with a hard earned
95 to 82 win in Dublin over DCU Saints. In doing so they became the
first Limerick men's basketball team to win their super league division.
Winning the Southern Conference means the Eagles get a bye into the
semi-finals when the league reaches the play-off stage and they will
have a home semi-final.

 

The game with DCU Saints was a really tough one with the Dubliners also
chasing a play-off place in their conference.  The game was extremely
physical and sometimes gave the lie to the idea that basketball is a
non-contact sport!  The Eagles led by 8 points at half time 43 to 35.
They held this gap through the 3rd quarter and the game was nicely set
up for the final 10 minutes. The teams traded scores in a high tempo
last quarter where the Eagles shot well with excellent 'threes' from
Campbell, Wong and King, and solid free throw shooting from Lynch, Hall
and Robbins.

 

The game ended with the Eagles ahead by 13 points to claim the game and
with it the Southern Conference.

 

DCU Saints had solid performances from the Donnellys, Trimmer, Quill and
Nagle. UL Eagles played a great team game with excellent work from Glen
Wong (20 points), Neil Campbell (24), Stuart Robbins (18), Rob Lynch,
Matt Hall, Stephen King, Aidan Holden, and Paul O'Sullivan, and coached
by Tony Hehir.

 

The Eagles have 2 games left in the regular season and are at home next
Saturday against Belfast Star, 7.30pm at UL Arena.
