The inaugural Wheelchair Basketball National Cup Semi finals will take place this Saturday the 5th of December in IWA,Clontarf. The prize for the winners is a final date on the Basketball Ireland National Cup Finals weekend in January 2016.
The first semi final will see Titans Wheelers from Galway play Ballybrack Bulls from Dublin at 11am. Given their current form Titans Wheelers will be slight favourites but Ballybrack Bulls will relish the challenge.
The second semi final sees two Munster teams pairing off with Fr Mathews from Cork facing off against Limerick Scorpions. Limerick are the 2014/2015 league champions and unbeaten in the league so far this year and will be outright favourites for the competition, but like the Bulls in the first semi final, Fr Mathews will provide a good contest. Tip off at 3pm.
