BelfastT Star reign supreme at the top of the Super League table after beating Tralee Warriors 89-79 in the Sports Complex.

The Kerry side, now three points behind the northern leaders, were just three down at the end of the third quarter on Saturday night before scores from Mike Davis and Matthew Jackson sealed victory for Star.

"It's so much fun coming to Tralee and playing with this crowd, I wish we could do it every week. We're delighted obviously, it's a win and it's a big win as it's on the road, and we're delighted," said coach Adrian Fulton.

Templeogue, who are level on points with Tralee, suffered a surprise 68-67 defeat to DCU Saints thanks to a late Tariq Guebaili score.

Templeogue's Martins Provizors and Mike Bonaparte combined to secure 42 points for the side but it was not enough to prevent defeat - the result ensuring Star sit top of the table.

Meanwhile in Cork, C and S Neptune recorded their first victory of the season when edging old rivals Maree 90-84 thanks to the efforts of Lehmon Colbert (24 points) and Darragh O'Sullivan (23 points).
