Interesting battles in store in Super League

It’s regular Super League action in the Women’s league, with some interesting battles in store. NUIG Mystics will welcome DCU Mercy on Saturday in what is set to be an interesting affair as the two sides will also meet each other in the Hula Hoops Women’s National Cup semi-finals in January following wins over Portlaoise Panthers and Courtyard Liffey Celtics respectively last weekend.

Maxol WIT Wildcats will travel to Upper Glanmire to face Ambassador UCC Glanmire, while Pyrobel Killester will be aiming to keep their unbeaten home record intact as they host Singleton SuperValu Brunell. The final game of the weekend will see Courtyard Liffey Celtics battle it out with IT Carlow Basketball.

The Basketball Ireland Players and Coaches of the Month for November were also announced this week. In the Women’s Super League, DCU Mercy player Tiffany Corselli scooped the Player of the Month award, with Pyrobel Killester’s Karl Kilbride winning the Coach of the Month after an unbeaten run in November.
