 Our three u10 girls teams who took part in our  2014 home blitz.



Undoubably the best Female Irish Player of all time. Local girl Susan left Ireland to play at D1 University St. Josephs inPhiladelphia USA. Susan had the best college career any Irish player has ever had and she picked up numerous awards along the way. Susan was the Atlantic 10 and Big 5 rookie of the year in 1999. 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.

Susan now enters her 10th season as an assistant coach on Hawk Hill. 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. The team ran a clinic for our young girls on Saturday 18th August. It was well attended by Coaches, Parents and local media. Thanks to Susan and Head coach Cindy Griffin for organising clinic. The young girls are already dreaming of a return visit to Philadelphia some day!

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.

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.

Senior Men: Tullamore welcomed favourites for the Midland League title this season Carlow IT to Colaiste Choilm on Friday night last. The home side threw the form book out the window early as they took the game to the Carlow team. Kasys Garkauskas impressed from the point guard position in the first half ensuring that Tullamore were only four points behind at half time 31-35. Carlow upped the tempo in the third quarter despite their american player Connaghan leaving the game with a leg injury with 20 points scored. Tullamore showed a lot of heart to hang in especially with Post player Victor Vaitcus causing the Carlow boys a lot of trouble on the inside with his determined and strong play. Martin McManus, Mareks Matulis and John Burns also showed their shooting prowess. Sebastian and Kacper Skura also kept the scoreboard ticking with a mixture of long range shots and fast break layups to keep Tullamore in touch. Unfortunately time ran out for Tullamore and Carlow made all their free throws as Tullamore tried to slow the game down in the last 3 minutes. The final margin of 66-78 was a little unfair on Tullamore as they were only 7 points adrift with 2 minutes left. Coach Nicholas Mvula will be happy with the overall performance and also that nine players got significant minutes and made positive contibutions. They turn their attention now to Athy BC whom they play away on the 6th December and they will be hoping for a convincing victory. Tullamore team: Sebastian Skura, Kacper Skura, Victor Vaitcus, Mareks Matulis, Martin McManus, Sean Spollen, Paulius Simkevicius, Kasys Garkauskas, John Burns, Chris Todd and Tomas Ramelis.
