Moycullen will move into the top six in the Men’s Super League if they can get the better of UCC Demons in the Kingfisher Arena at 7pm. Both teams are level on 24 points and Moycullen will leapfrog their opponents if they can get the victory.
Thanks to Brandon McGuire and James Loughnane, Moycullen were 117-94 winners over UCC Demons in December. And with Dylan Cunningham and Patrick Lyons also proficient scorers, they’ll be confident of repeating that result.
February 3rd in ALSAA.

Maree ran table toppers UCD Marian close in their last outing only going down 83-79 in Oranmore. They are on their travels this Saturday when they face Griffith College Sword Thunder in ALSAA, Dublin at 5pm.
It’s a difficult assignment away to the third placed side but after Maree’s efforts against UCD, they won’t go in fear. They did go down 70-84 to Griffith College in October and will depend on strong performances from Kenneth Hansberry, Eoin Rockall, Jamelle Tolliver, Corey Hammell and Cathal Finn.

They face Maxol WIT Wildcats at 3pm who are only nine points ahead and they’ll look to build on their 68-65 result over Singleton Supervalu Brunell.
