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.
U20 Men Go Through To National Cup Semi-Finals.
The guys were truly in great form Sunday facing Fr Mathews in Greendale. Rory Carroll was also in great form with 3 pointers. Everyone really brought their A game with them and worked so well as a team. It was great to watch. This win sees them go through to the semi-finals which will be held in Cork. Well done guys.
Christmas Tree time at KUBS.

KUBS U18 Boys Top Their Group
What a weekend of basketball! .
Absolutely nail biting games throughout the weekend had the supporters on the edge of their seats. KUBS had just a 3 point win over Liffey Celtics this morning and then a short break before meeting Lions in the final to decide home advantage. Another really close game this time, but the guys kept their cool and despite Lions having the amazing Aiden Harris on the court, were unable to overcome the pressure KUBS put up. Well done to Gary and all the boys.
KUBS Super League Team Go To Next Round of Cup.
The Super League guys were back in action this evening out in Colaiste Eanna, for the second leg of the Cup. Eanna needed to win by more than 7 to go through, but KUBS had other plans. The first meeting of these teams was a close game and this one looked like it was going the same way, until the last quarter that is. Conor Ross stepped in well to Stephen Ingles spot, after he suffered a knee injury from a fall. With tit for tat scoring throughout the evening and a high fouling struggle from both teams, it wasn’t until the last quarter that a better flow of play let the KUBS guys steam ahead. Jonathan Riles came on all fresh and lively and planted some sweet shots from outside. Gary Barron managed to get that 3 point shot of his back into action just in time and Kevin Foley plucked some amazing passes out of a very difficult air and through the strong defence that Eanna put up. Amazing stuff to watch.
Final Score 53 – 68 to KUBS.
KUBS Div. 1 Team Hold Back Marian
Last Monday’s game v UCD Marian was a furious paced affair and at times a scrappy game. Two strong teams refusing to back down makes for a tight game and that’s what we got on Monday last. Right to the end they had the supporters roaring and on the edge of their seats. Entertaining stuff for a Monday night and a nice win for KUBS at 66 – 62.
Under 11 start their KUBS career with a win 21-18 over Ongar Chasers.
We had a very competitive start last Saturday with a 3 point win against Ongar refereed ably by Noel Murphy. Laura Flynn Zarah Dempsey, Eve Elliott, Melinn and Becky Dingreville, Bronagh Conlon, Ellen O'Connell and Sophia Kelly came on court for the their first competitive KUBS game. Well done. All players were hungry for the ball and performed well with the experience of Aoife McGinley, Blessing Oliviera, Kate Mullen, and Hannah Jordan strengthening the squad and helping the coach Ella McCloskey to their first U11 win. This week's training was a lot more focused as the players liked that winning feeling and can feel the development work paying off.
Top Scorers: - KUBS: Aoife McGinley (8), Hannah Jordan(6), Kate Mullen (3).
Ongar: Laura McGuiness (4), Grace Iuravcu (4) Emma Deering (4).
