KILLARNEY’S Scott’s Lakers will finish second in the southern conference of the National Basketball League, with 18 wins and five losses to reflect on as they enter the latter stages of the campaign.
They trail Ballincollig who managed 21 victories and just two reverses, thanks mainly to the brilliance of their American Andre Nation.
Cormac O’Donoghue’s side enjoyed a great win on the road with an impressive 17-point victory over Kubs of Dublin last weekend while the second place final position on the northern conference is still up for grabs with Sligo All-Stars and Dublin Lions both enjoying a 16-6 record.
With this in mind, Killarney’s home game against Sligo in Killarney Sports Centre on this Saturday night is a big encounter for the visitors from the north west. Likewise, Scotts’ Lakers will be hoping to finish the regular season on a high and to hit winning form entering the forthcoming play-offs.
Having enjoyed some notable wins of late, Sligo will travel to Killarney in confident form and will look to the likes American Victory Scholars, Zack Yonda and Connor McClenaghan as well as Tobi Brockmann, Inigo Zabalo, Cian Lally Oisín O’Reilly, Emmet Keogh and Jesus SanMartin.
The visitors are coached by Shane O’Meara, son of the late Pat O’Meara, a native of High Street, Killarney. The tip-off in Killarney Sports Centre is at 7.30pm.
