Basketball Ireland Men’s Division One: Titans 62-80 DBS Éanna Titans were once more the last team in action at the weekend, and were unlucky not to pip Northern conference leaders, DBS Eanna at the Jes on Sunday.

A big 26-point display from the hugely impressive Tom Rivard saw Titans up by one at the half time break (30-29) but Éanna put in a huge second half display with Stefan Zecevic and Conor Gallagher causing major trouble for the hosts, to see them win out 62-80 in the end.
