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.

New Basketball Season. The 2014/15 basketball season is gearing up to start over the next fortnight. Some of Tullamore’s teams got in some pre-season games last weekend including the senior mens team who took part in the Longford Torpedoes invitational tournament in Edgeworthstown.

Senior Men The lads got in some good games last Saturday and Sunday starting off with a comfortable win over neighbours Athlone 40-28. A strong Torpedoes side had a small bit to spare over Tullamore in the second game winning 55-47 so the lads knew they had to put in a strong performance in the third pool game against the rebels side over from Manchester to have any hope of qualifying for Sundays semi finals. A  first half  lead of 20 points for Tullamore looked good but the English boys fought back to level at the end of normal time. Each team spurned free throw opportunities to win at the death so overtime loomed. Manchester won but Tullamore had done enough to earn the right to play Trinity College Dublin in the semi final. The students proved a strong outfit winning out the tournament eventually and they beat Tullamore 55-41. Kacper Skuras three point shooting was a highlight for Tullamore. Other noteworthy performers over the weekend were Sebastian Skura, Viktoras Vaitkus and Kasys Garkauskas. Tullamore will welcome back Conor McNiff next week now that gaa season is ending and he will add a major scoring threat for their first Midland league game away to Portlaoise.

Underage friendlies. There were 3 friendlies in Colaiste Choilm last Sunday. The u14 girls defeated Kilcock 26-21. Niamh Lydon impressed as did Leah Spollen. The u16 boys played Longford falcons and came away with a close 55-48 win. All 11 players gave solid performances with Edvinas Roscenkovas, Cathal Kavanagh and Martynas Garkauskas heading the scoring. David Donoghue also showed well in his debut for the club.

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.
