Tim O’Sullivan, UCC Demons Head Coach:
We are off again on the road for the 4th away game in a row. Coming off the back of the two bad losses in a row either side of Christmas the lads know what is needed in a tough game to Swords Thunder. Thunder have 2 Americans and 4 bosman players which will cause us many problems. On top of this they have one of the best guards in the league in Westbrook. Adrian (O’Sullivan) will be looked upon to keep his fine vein of form going and Roy (Downey) will need to bring his defensive pressure and composed offensive game this Saturday. Our bigs all know they must knock down open outside looks to stretch Thunder. Ciaran (O’Sulilvan) will need to hit some big shots for us also. Only injury worry is Kyle (Hosford) who may miss the remainder of the season with his ongoing knee injury.
