Varsities day 1 match reviews

The 66th Intervarsities basketball tournament got underway at the University of Limerick, with hugely competitive games across all of the divisions.

In the Men’s Division A, NUI Galway dominated their two group games, finishing the day unbeaten as too did Griffith College Dublin, who wrapped up the day with a win over LYIT.

In the Men’s Division B, games were played out across the four pools, with some big upsets along the way, leaving it all to play for tomorrow, while the Women’s Division B is still wide open with coveted final four spots still very much up for grabs.

Griffith College, division 2 league matches took places for the women. The match was completely action packed from beginning to end. However, WIT fell behind in the last quarter which left Griffith College to a huge lead at the end. There was in total 30 baskets from Kelsey Carey and 22 from Kristine Miller. There were some great rebounds from Sindhuri Shastri.

Overall, WIT lacked defence and missed out on pivotal rebounds. They fell a good bit behind and Griffith conquered the last round.

The Griffith College male team won 2 out of 2 of their games and were absolutely ecstatic about the end result. Dave Baker said ”It was a well-deserved win as they have been training non stop all season.”

LYIT fell behind but had some great free shots and rebounds. However, their defence and game plan were not in their favour.
