Pure magic from Armagh

Armagh Magic look set to leave Division 1 with an undefeated record, currently at 16-0. No team in their division is coming close to the quality of basketball that this team are bringing each game. Former Dungannon Cavs’ point guard, Darius Surginas, is perhaps the most talented player in the Division 1. Last season, Surginas was a league leader in 3-point shots made – he has more range than Rory McIlroy.

The Courtside Collective would like to thank Bisons Video for allowing us to share some highlights of last week’s match-up between Armagh Magic & Tyrone Towers. The final score was 79-67 with Armagh recording their 14th victory of the season.

Top scorers for Magic:

Darius Surginas (22 points), Tadas Bubliauskas (19 points) & Audrius Verikas (19 points)

Tony started playing basketball when he was 11, after realising that he couldn’t kick a ball. Enjoying every opportunity to be around the game, Tony has been a player, scorekeeper, referee, coach and MC. In 2009, he coached women's basketball in Sweden for a season with the Umeå Comets (now bought over by Udominate). He then returned home and worked with PeacePlayers International, which uses the game to bring young people together from divided communities. Tony has since taken on a role in Google and has worked in Dublin and Singapore. He is now based out of London, playing for a local London D2 team, the United Nations Basketball Club.
