KUBS Mens Division 1 Team Take DMBB Cup Title.
What a game! In a tightly contested final game of the DMBB Cup Weekend, the KUBS Div 1 Men played a blinder and kept a very strong Drogheda Bullets away from ending, what was a great season for them, with a win. Right from the tip off the KUBS guys were relentless in their title battle. Although Bullets had some height advantage, the KUBS lads would not be deterred. Nobody can doubt that the MVP position goes to Marcus Black who truly was awesome. Shane McCann can share some honours also as he was dominant under the basket. Another player who lit up the night and the supporters was Tom Kenny, who with sheer basketball guts made sure he made his mark on the game. The three pointers weren't abundant today but the few from Kevin Hughes and Marcus were very welcome indeed. Rory Carroll was slow to get his mojo working on three pointers, but when he did, it made all the difference. Conor McCracken, Greg Campion and Dylan Kessie where always in the right place when needed and these things can make or break of a game if not done right. Well done to Coach Danny O'Mahony on the great job done throughout the season. Congratulations to all.
KUBS U16 Boys Take DMBB Cup Title
In an exciting mid-day game out in the Oblates, our under 16 boys did their club, coach and parents proud by having a convincing win over a skilled and tall Templeogue. The guys provided a near textbook team game with superb passing and shooting skills. It looks like all that time spent in the gym pays off on occasions like this. Well done to Coach Andy Flood and to all involved with this team.
KUBS Girls Take Div 3 Cup Title
With a fair bit of style and great defense work together with great shooting skills, the KUBS girls had a decisive win over Dublin Lions in the DLBB Cup Final out in the Oblates today. The girls were able to set the pace while playing a great passing game that highlighted a great team effort. It was a well deserved win for KUBS, even though Lions put in a major effort right to the final buzzer. Well done to Katie Vanhoutte for coaching these girls while playing, which is not easy, and getting them to a Cup Title. It was great work by all involved
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.
