WATCH: Irish Basketball Cup quarter-final throws up some seriously impressive skills

By Steve Neville

Griffith Swords Thunder and Templeogue put on a bit of a show in the Hula Hoops Cup Quarter-Final at the National Basketball Arena.

Swords Thunder came out on top, winning 88-81 to advance to the semi-final but fans will have been impressed by the game.

Templeogue's Lorcan Murphy made sure his side didn't go down without a fight producing a classy double dunk, the second being particularly impressive.

Justin Goldsborough of Swords Thunder wasn't going to let Murphy steal the limelight with a throw down of his own.

And there wasn't just impressive scoring in the game either. This full-court pass from Jason Killeen is a joy to watch.
