Basketball is life #2 And we’re off!

Ire V GB U20--7640

Hola bball heads! It really is true when people say time flies when your having fun or you’re so up the walls you can’t tell night from day! Either way the past four weeks have whizzed by and all of our senior teams have begun their seasons.

Our Senior “Men In Black” got off to a fantastic start beating off close rivals CIT in their first game of the A league. They won on an impressive scoreline of 102 – 96 #BucketzForDayz. Impressive performances were put in by the freshers of the team in their debuts for the club. Our boys will have their next game against Carlow IT at home.

Our “A team” ladies also played CIT in their first game of the season however were unlucky to lose out in a well fought game with a score of CIT 75 – 62. Believe me when I say us ladies will be back and looking for the #Dub when we play Waterford IT in our next match this Wednesday (9th of November) away in WIT. Let’s go #TheAteam

Our “Queen B’z” played our C Ladies in their first game of the season in a face off of the #AgressiveHunz. The B ladies came out victorious in the end. They play their first away game of the year this Tuesday  (the 8th of November) against Tralee IT. You know what they say about them Bees, you mess with them you’re gonna get stung!

The newbies of the club, the C Ladies, are ahead of all of us when it to games played having won their first ever game against AIT beating the 51 – 34! (Good job ladies!) They then played our B ladies and put up a good fight while missing both their top scorers from the game against AIT. They now look forward to playing Mary I tonight away in Mary I (Monday the 7th of November) #TheyCmeBallin

Up and coming this month we have the much anticipated Fresher’s tournament in Carlow IT on the 26th to 27th of November where both our #FreshAsFudge ladies and men’s teams will play for the coveted  Fresher’s Cup! Our ladies will be looking to retain this title for the college once more. Staying with our freshers they will be hosting a quiz in the Rock this Wednesday at 7pm with some of the proceeds going to the CUH Charity. It will be €20 per table with 4 at each table. The quiz will be followed up with the ever famous trad session. The Rock always promises to be good craic so get yer butts down there and test those brains (or internet connections).

Keep an eye on the Facebook, website, twitter and snapchat for updates on any games, results or events we will have coming up this month!

Also big shout out to all them skull and bonez graduating this month with a special mention to Men In Black Daragh Fleming, Ryan Murphy and Adrian O’ Sullivan. Somehow Adrian managed to weasel his way back into the UCC enrollment so luckily for us we don’t have to say goodbye quite yet but we wish Flembucketz and Murphy the best of luck in the future and thank them for all their blood, sweat and tears over the past couple of years!

Thank ye all for reading (especially if you stuck it through to the end!) and remember #TravelStrong

Peace out!
