Tim O’Halloran, UCC Demons Head Coach:
After a week of some of the toughest practices to date we were looking for a response from the team after the poor showing in Marian. Everyone was ready from the tip, and we played some great basketball in many stages during the game. Up 17 at the half time we knew Swords Thunder would come at us , but we held the nerve and came out deserved winners I feel. Coach Baker has an abundance of American and bosman players at his disposal but it was great to see our Demons players go toe to toe with them. Our passing, shooting, spacing and especially our defense was where it needs to be every game. We look to improve every week and move onto KUBS this weekend in the arena. Carlton Cuff and Niall Murphy are our only injury concerns this week.
