Men’s Super League 

Belfast Star began the defence of their InsureMyVan.ie Super League title with an 83-74 home defeat to UCD Marian at De La Salle. 

They also suffered a devastating injury to Aidan Quinn, who dislocated his knee six minutes before tip off.

UCD head coach Adrian Fulton said: “The only thing that matters right now is that Aidan Quinn makes a full recovery. 

“A horrible injury unfortunately. UCD are an excellent team, very well coached and have a lot of talented and experienced players.  I was very encouraged by a lot of what I saw from us today despite the loss. “

“Disappointing to lose, given that we were right in the mix until the last 40 seconds. We have had a difficult pre-season, but we were much better today than we were last weekend in our first two pre-season games. 

“The atmosphere was as electric as ever in La Salle and our supporters did their best to will us over the line. Every week is going to be a battle.”

DBS Éanna and Killester played out a tight contest, which went to overtime with the team’s level at 83 points apiece, before DBS Éanna managed to take the win 94-88.
