The match of the weekend in the men’s National Cup first Round First Leg is the clash of the giants Killester against C&S UCC Demons tonight at 7 in Clontarf where the full house signs should go up early. The game will be streamed live on www.killester.com.
Colin O’Reilly’s Demons are the favourites but that didn’t stop the Cork man making the long journey to the National Basketball Arena to watch his opponents last week.
“I still say it will be tough in Clontarf, it is a venue I don’t like playing in as it is so tight but we are prepared for this one. They will have Michael Westbrooks and Ciaran Roe a little bit more match fit but they are still without Kieran O’Brien and Mariano Gomez and that affects their rotation” said O’Reilly.
The Killester coach Jonny Grennell was far from happy with his side’s offensive performance against Travelodge Thunder last Sunday. “Apart from Jermaine (Turner) who had 33 points we were awful and I can only hope that we have learned from the shooting drills during the week. It is going to be tough but I do believe while they are rightfully favourites we can take it” said Grennell.
