THE biggest home game in the history of Ballincollig Basketball Club takes place this afternoon.
The losers of that promotion game tomorrow will still have another shot at going up to the SuperLeague, in a play-off against Neptune, but the Collig will be eager to get the job done this weekend.
Dublin Lions have a decent American in Conroy Baltimore, but Andre Nation has been sensational this term. The former Division 1 college player has offered up a constant highlight reel of vicious slam-dunks and devastating drives.
Ciarán O’Sullivan is the playmaker and spiritual leader of Ballincollig, while homegrown players Colin Murray, Issac James, Daniel O’Sullivan, Andrew O’Connor, Alex Chandler and Dylan Corkery are integral to the squad.
“To retain the President’s Cup was a great achievement and everyone in Ballincollig is hoping they can follow up now with another trophy.”
