Susan was selected to the Atlantic ten and big 5 first team in 2000 and 2001. In 2002 Susan was the Atlantic Ten player of the year and the conferences leading scorer. Susan left St. Joe's as their all time leading scorer (2,340 points). Susan went on to be the first Irish player to be drafteed to the WNBA and she played for the New York Liberty and also played professionally in Spain, New Zealand and Australia. In 2005, Moran earned MVP honors of the Women's National Basketball League in New Zealand after leading the Canterbury Wildcats to the league title. In the summer of 2006, Moran earned MVP honors of the Queensland Australia Basketball League as a member of the Rockhampton Cyclones. Through out this time Susan was also playing with Ireland's senior womens team in the European Championships were she showed tremendous leadership.

Moran is responsible for post development, opponent scouting and international recruiting. Tullamore basketball club are honoured to host the "Hawks" and to have Irelands most decorated female basketball player come home.

 U10 GIRLS WIN TOMMY KEOGH ATHLONE TOURNAMENT 2012
U10 Girls
Congratulations to our youngest team, the U10 girls on winning the Tommy Keogh Athlone Tournament last weekend. This was the first time the club has won this tournament which had all the top Midland clubs taking part. The young girls played three games to qualify for the Final, beginning with a victory over Kestrels. Maedhbh O Brien and Hannah Dooley showed some great determination and were ably assisted by the impressive Emma Glavin and Lucy Fennelly in this game. A tough second game against home club Athlone followed. Good baskets from Emma Hand, Aoife Farrell and Sarah Jane Lynam were needed to secure victory 14-8. Emma Beatty and Eimear Cullen fought hard for any loose ball in their third game against Clonaslee. Confident performances from Mia O Mahoney and Katie Bourke along with the superb defending of Ellie Glavin and the top class shooting of Kate Healy saw Tullamore home 20-8. The Final was played on the full court in the Bower School with 10ft baskets, so scores were at a premium. All the Tullamore girls had to work hard to cover the court in the high intensity encounter with Clonaslee. A 2 point lead at half time looked slender but a late basket in the final quarter saw Tullamore home amid wild cheers from their supporters. The Tullamore girls were presented with medals before the hard working Shauna Slattery proudly accepted the magnificent trophy from Ronan Keogh on behalf of the team.
 ALL IRELAND u14 FINALISTS

Under 14 Girls claim All Ireland Bronze

The first team ever from Tullamore Basketball Club to qualify for the All Ireland Club Championships performed very well against a very high standard of opposition and came away with bronze medals.Big attendances from all over Ireland watched the games during the tournament which took place in Portarlington last weekend. The Tullamore girls were drawn to play in pool D with two of the strongest teams in the country. First of all they played Killenkere who eventually lost the Division 1 final by 2 points and then they played Meteors of Dublin who won the Division 2 title on the Sunday. The girls were not disheartened and played well in both games. On Saturday night they took on Kiltimagh Giants in the division 3 semi final and looked to be coasting at half time when Tullamore led by 5 points 18-13. The Kiltimagh girls were not fiinshed though and showed why they are Mayo champions by storming back to take an 8 point lead with three minutes left on the clock. Tullamore then really showed their mettle by fighting back to a 2 point deficit in the last minute. Tullamore turned over the Kiltimagh ball but unfortunately it ran out of play to save Kiltimaghs bacon. The Mayo girls managed a final score near the buzzer to win 33-29. Tullamore played Sligo Giant Warriors in a consolation game on the Sunday and then were presented with their All Ireland Bronze medals. A notable achievement for a team which has some girls who have not played the game for a full year yet. All at Tullamore Basketball are proud of them all and look forward to many successful years ahead.

Final Four Weekend 2014

The Midland League basketball season drew to a close last week with a flurry of games at underage level in the Final Four competitions. First into action were the under 12 Flames girls team who were drawn against Athlone in the semi-final. All 13 young girls put in a big effort and were unlucky to come out the wrong side of a 20-23 result. Next up were the under 12 boys who lost out to league winners Kestrels in the semi-final. The vast majority of both boys and girls u12 teams are underage again next year so hopes are high for next season. The under 18 boys faced up to Portlaoise in their semi-final on Saturday night. Unfortunately it was the Panthers side buoyed by a vociferous home support ran out winners. Commiserations to Coaches Mareks Matulis and Rob Bailey and the boys. The under 14 boys also gave a good account of themselves going down against a strong Kestrels side in their semi-final.

Senior Men The senior team lost out to league leaders IT Carlow on Friday last in Colaiste Choilm 62-74. Carlow had enough of a cushion from the second quarter on to hold Tullamore at bay all through. A feature of the game for Tullamore was the performances of the three Skura brothers with Sebastian and Kacpar leading the scoring on 17 and 15 points respectively and the senior debut of 16 year old Dominik who acquitted himself very well. Tullamore scorers: Scorers Sebastian Skura 17 Kacper Skura 15, Kazimiras Garkauskas 4, Martin McManus 4 Sean Spollen 5, Dominik Skura 5 Mareks Matulis 2. The team still hold onto 8th place in the league and a possible division 2 semi final spot.

U16 Girls The Under 16 girls played Athlone on Saturday in the Midland League where a 16 point haul from Rebecca O Mahoney gave them a 30-20 lead going into the fourth quarter. Unfortunately foul trouble for key players led to a complete collapse in the final quarter. Athlone eventually running out 37-33 winners. The girls were quick to put the disappointment behind them as they headed for the Longford Invitational tournament on Sunday last. They defeated a Mayo County select side and also Sligo Giant Warriors before playing a highly competitive semi-final against the home side Falcons. Tullamore led with 4 minutes left on the clock but Longford eventually emerged winners by 4 points. It proved a satisfying day for the team and Coach Niamh McEnhill as all ten players got on the scoresheet during the day. The team was Rachael Dunne Maisie Currams, Aoibheann O Mahoney, Rebecca O Mahoney, Aisling Lydon, Emily Bailey, Shannon Coyne, Caoimhe Guinan, Aoife Spain, Rachel Heffernan O Brien and Amy Galvin.

U16 Boys The Under 16 boys short Centre Jordan Huang suffered two defeats on Sunday, losing to Newbridge Gliders 30-55 and to Athlone 53-57.

U20 Boys The Under 20 boys also suffered two defeats on Saturday, losing to Kestrels by 20 points and to Portlaoise by ten even though scores were tied with three and a half quarters gone.

Senior Men The senior men suffered a heartbreaking last seconds loss to Lit-Pol of Birr last Friday in the Midland League. The game was close at half time 27-26 to the Birr side but Tullamore spurned a chance to take the lead with five seconds remaining for Lit Pol to run out 74-71. This result puts Tullamores post season involvement in jeopardy. The team is now relying on gaining points against some of the front runners in the league.

Next weekend the Under 12 Flames team try to secure runners up position in the league when they platy Athlone at home and the Phoenix team will also qualify for the final 4 tournament if they can secure an 18 point win over Clonaslee: Fixtures: Wednesday 12th March U16 Girls V Kestrels.
