National Basketball Cup Draws Made Today

: 09/13/2017 - 16:05

Ambassador UCC Glanmire will get the defence of their Hula Hoops National Cup title underway with a quarter-final clash against Pyrobel Killester, it was revealed today at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght.

Glanmire, who are hoping to clinch five Hula Hoops National Cup titles in-a-row, will have a tough test ahead of them in Karl Kilbride's team.

Elsewhere in the Women’s Super League draw, NUIG Mystics and IT Carlow Basketball will play off a preliminary round before finding out who will advance to the quarter-finals, where the winner will face Portlaoise Panthers.

Courtyard Liffey Celtics meanwhile, will face DCU Mercy in a much-anticipated quarter-final clash (a repeat of last year’s thrilling semi-final battle), while Francis O’Sullivan’s charges at Singleton SuperValu Bruneill will play Maxol WIT Wildcats.

In the Men’s Pat Duffy Cup, reigning champions Griffith Swords Thunder will welcome DCU Saints to the ALSAA, while Regular Season champions Black Amber Templeogue will face off against Belfast Star.

Today's draw has also teed up a tantalising Galway derby as Maree were drawn against neighbours SSE Airtricity Moycullen. Elsewhere, KUBS will go head-to-head with UCC Demons, while Pyrobel Killester, UCD Marian, Garvey’s Tralee Warriors and Eanna all have a bye straight into the quarter-finals.
