THE RADISSON Blu UL Eagles have signed American Professional Ryan Wilson from Spanish Club Union Linense. Ryan comes with a lot of experience, he played College basketball with William Penn University in the US, and also has played for teams in England, Italy and Spain, he made his debut against UCD Marian on the 4th Dec, scoring 26 points.
After a disappointing start to the season it is hoped that Ryans experience will provide some additional leadership on court as the Eagles have come up short in recent weeks having worked their way to promising positions. French man Jonathan Dogbo continues to show good form averaging 20pts and 12 rebounds. Despite our lowly league position the local players that have stepped up from the under 20’s, Diarmuid O’ Shea, Krystian Burchardt, Ronan Howlin and David O’ Connell have provided some optimism for the remainder of the season.
On Sunday they travel to Galway to take on Moycullen, the next home game is on Saturday the 17th Dec. against Kieran Donaghys Tralee Warriors at the UL Arena tip-off 7:30, this is a game not to be missed. Dec 31st sees the Eagles back at the UL Arena for a 2pm tip-off to take on Belfast Star. Two wins from three would help the Eagles avoid the relegation scramble.
