Belfast Star will have a huge say on who wins the All-Ireland Superleague title as they prepare to face Tralee.

The championship is up for grabs and the Belfast team proved in their victory over Marian, who moved back to the top of the table with 16 wins and five losses after overcoming Griffith College Swords Thunder 75-69 on Wednesday, that they can mix it with the best.

Star coach Darren O'Neill commented: "We showed what we are capable of in the win over Marian. Everyone contributed so well."

Killester stormed into a much stronger position with a 92-63 win over Templeogue on Tuesday and have two games still to play - meeting both DCU Saints and Eanna this weekend.

If UCD, Killester and Tralee all win their remaining games, there could well be a play-off for the regular season title.

The bottom of the men's Superleague table is just as close, with KUBS currently propping up the standings.

But both Maree and Eanna are still in danger of dropping into the relegation zone. Maree will meet both teams this weekend, while Eanna and KUBS also face tough challenges in Killester and UCC Demons respectively.
