The team had a strong representation from Dublin with 7 players named in the squad and all contributing massively to the success during the tournament.

DLBB Mission Statement:

β€œThe DLBB are passionately committed to the development of basketball in the Dublin area. We are proud of the size and strength of our leagues and we have worked very hard to grow our association to its current size in Ireland. Our priority is and will always be the future of the Dublin leagues and we need to continue with our agenda particularly around our underage development programme which competes at national level in the AICCs. As Link agreements are for the development of basketball in other area boards we do not see that they are compatible with our development programmes and therefore we will not be engaging in Link Agreements for the foreseeable future.”
