Irish Basketball Association National League Women’s Citrus Spring League Division 1 Results 1991-92 [Ref: 2-30]


The Irish Basketball Association National League Women’s Division 1 (the top Division in Ireland) was sponsored by Citrus Spring for 1991-92. The League turned into an exciting four-team battle as West Coast Coolers Meteors (from Stillorgan in South Dublin), Naomh Mhuire (St. Mary’s, Inchicore, Dublin), Lee Strand Tralee (Co. Kerry) and Snowcream Wildcats (Waterford) only separated by one game at the end of the season.

Meteors won the title ahead of Naomh Mhuire, after both finished on 11-3 records, with Tralee and the Wildcats one game back on 10-4. Meteors weren’t to get the double, however, as Naomh Mhuire defeated them 59-48 in the Top 4 Final in Neptune Stadium, Cork. The team from Inchicore sprinted into an 11-point lead after 6 minutes, with Coolers switched to a man-to-man defense to claw back into the game, trailing 27-26 at the half. A low-scoring third quarter followed, with both sides level at the end 37-37, before good free-throwing in the last quarter from Naomh Mhuire and a three-point spree from Junior International June Blount secured the title for Naomh Mhuire.
