Snowcream Wexford would be back in Division 2 after one season in Division 1 and would win the title with 13 wins from 14 matches. The 1994-95 season would see a drop in the number of teams to five as Brunell of Cork  took the title with a 9-3 record. MSB wouuld take the title in 1995-96 with a 9-3 record and defeat Eagles of Kildare 74-61 in the Final.

Following the 1996-97 season which was won by Blarney with an unblemished 12-0 record, though they lost the Final to Killester in Overtime, 79-75, it was decided to merge Divisions 1 & 2 into one Super League, with a Regional League below this.
