Experienced Jason Killeen (6'11''-C-85, graduated '09, plays pro in Ireland) led Templeogue to a victory over the closely-ranked Eanna (7-3) 101-87 in a derby game in the Irish Super League last Saturday. He was MVP of the game. Killeen scored 26 points (!!!) and grabbed 6 rebounds in 26 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Griffith College Templeogue (7-4) is placed fourth in the Super League. It was his team's third consecutive victory in a row. It's Killeen's sixth season with the team. He has individually a very good year with high stats. Killeen averages 15.8ppg, 8.4rpg, 1.9apg, 1.3bpg and 1.3spg in nine games he played so far.
#2. Marko Cergic (6'8''-F-95, graduated '15, plays in Romania) managed to help CSM Miercurea Ciuc to win against the fifth-ranked Constanta (3-6) 65-58 in the Romanian Liga Nationala on Saturday night. He scored only 2 points. CSM Miercurea Ciuc (2-7) is placed seventh in Group B. It was his team's first victory after three consecutive loses. This season Cergic averages 3.8ppg and 2.1rpg.
#3. Ben Madgen (6'4''-G/F-85, graduated '10, currently in Australia), who plays in the Australian NBL could not help South East Melbourne Phoenix (6-6) in their last game. Despite his very good performance South East Melbourne Phoenix lost108-98on the road to the second-ranked Perth Wildcats. Madgen had a double-double by scoring 20 points and getting 11 rebounds. He also added 3 assists and 2 blocks in 35 minutes. Madgen has relatively good stats this year 12.3ppg, 5.6rpg and 2.4apg in 12 games.
#4. KJ Sherrill (6'8''-F/C-91, graduated '14, plays pro in Germany) was not able to help Koblenz in their game against Saarlouis/Dillingen (6-6) in the German Regionalliga (fourth division). He scored 5 points, had 9 rebounds and made 2 blocks. The second-placed Koblenz (8-4) was edged71-68at home by the lower-ranked Saarlouis/Dillingen (#7) in the South-West group. It was Koblenz's first loss after four consecutive victories. There are only four games left until the end of the Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Sherrill has relatively good stats this season 10.4ppg, 6.9rpg and 1.6apg.
#5. Keshun Sherrill (5'9''-PG-94, graduated '17, plays in Turkey) was not able to secure a victory for Yalova Bld (4-6) in their last game.

Sherrill also added 3 passes in 40 minutes; quite an impressive performance considering it's only his third season in pro basketball. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. It's Sherrill's first year with the team. Sherrill has very impressive stats this season 23.1ppg, 4.1rpg, 5.4apg and 1.2spg in 10 games.
