Neptune hosted UCD Marion in there 3rd clash of the season.UCD travelled without an american player and were always up against it in that regard.Neptune went into an early lead led by Ger Noonan whos ability to find team mates as he drives to the basket was a treat to watch.Phil Taylor was enjoying the game aswell and finished with 15 points.

UCD did shoot the ball very well  hitting 6 from outside the 3 point line in the first half alone.Kieran Foley and Niall Meaney were excellent. Neptune led the game by a comfortable 15 points at the half time break.

Coach scannel took the oppourtunity the lead gave him and began to introduce some of the teams younger players who's committment to the cause is very admirable indeed. Jason Wilkinson and Roy Downey seem to enjoy playing at this level and with some more court time and experience im sure they will be a great asset to the team.

It was Ron Thompsons contribution which stood out finishing the game with 29 points and an impressive 18 rebounds, Ger Noonan finished with 24 with Taylor adding 15.
