Well they did it again!
Another great win for KUBS Super League team last night, this time in the return leg of this local derby with Killester. And as usual it didn’t disappoint in the excitement department. These two teams seem to be so closely matched that they provided a super entertaining night of basketball for the large crowd of supporters. KUBS hit the ground running with a fast paced first quarter and the lead was theirs to hold for the rest of the game. Killester managed to draw level towards the end in no small way due to the heroic effort of Ciaran Lawlor who was on fire as usual and put in an amazing performance. KUBS kept cool heads and played it out steady to the final buzzer with a 6-point win. New dad Kevin Foley wore his path to the basket in the usual style, and with his super free-throw skills, made sure he was definitely the wrong man to fowl. Gary Barron drew the biggest cheer of the night with a full court buzzer beater that brought the crowd to their feet. Brian Edwards and Corbin Jackson played a strong game on the inside with Corbin on 11 rebounds. Well done guys.
Templeogue rattled by another strong KUBS performance.
It was an exciting evening of basketball, keeping spectators on the edge of their seats, as KUBS hosted top ranked Templeogue in Greendale. KUBS delivered a good defensive game that kept the normally high scoring Templeogue to a top of 76 for the game. Templeogue had the edge with some great shooting, but a relentless drive from the home team made it a high-pressure game right to the end. Templeogue came out on top at the final buzzer but only by 5 points. KUBS can take a lot away from their great effort overall and hopefully build on this to steer the team in the right direction into the future.

U17 Boys Strong Win Over Eanna.
Our U17 Boys came out on top in their home game this evening against Eanna in Greendale. The Eanna bench had plenty of height available and this might prove to be a great advantage in the future. But, for todays game, the KUBS boys were in top form, driving and stealing balls at a hectic pace. Eanna came back into it in the last quarter with a sharp burst of fast breaks and strong effort. But the clock wasn’t on their side and KUBS took a comfortable win. Well done lads and Coach Brian Edwards.
Final Score – KUBS 69 – Eanna 41
Top Scorers- Rory Howe 28pts, Jamie McDonagh 22pts & Jack Doyle 6pts.
KUBS Girls Go Through To Finals
Our D3 Girls were away playing Firhouse last night in the Cup Semi-Final. They put in a very strong performance and came away the victors with a 65 - 40 win. Well done girls, maybe we can look forward to some Cup Final celebrations after all. (No pressure.)
Div 1 Men Overpower Tolka.
A class game of basketball was on show on Monday evening in Greendale. Our Div 1 team hosted Tolka and put in a great performance on the night. Dylan Kessie proved that he still hasn't lost his 3 point sharp shooting, dropping in a bunch of well timed shots. All were on great form and it was brilliant to watch.
Great Weekend Of Semi-Final Wins For KUBS
U18 Boys and U20 Mens teams go through to the Hula Hoops National Cup Finals in a couple of weeks after showing up in top notch form for both their semi-finals in Neptune Stadium this weekend. Thrilling games to watch and awesome skill levels were on display on both days. The U18 Boys shut out Templeogue in a tight game that was punctuated by some very timely 3 pointers from Donal McKay.
The U20 guys stepped up on Sunday and proved they could battle with the best of them. They matched a tall and strong Moycullen side with speed, agility and some great shooting skills. They led in all quarters and only let Moycullen back near them by 5 points when they took the foot of the throttle at the start of the fourth quarter. An amazing Cup Semi weekend and very entertaining basketball for the many spectators.
U20 Girls v Meteors in Cup Quarter Final
Hard luck to our U20 Girls who faced a very strong Meteor side last night in Greendale. The game was a Cup quarter final game, and a tough loss, after the girls put in such hard work to bring it back in the final quarter. Hannah Feerick was on fire throughout the game but found it hard to battle her way through a very strong Meteor defense under the basket.
