Kerry's Kieran Donaghy with his daughter Lola Rose

Kieran Donaghy's Kerry GAA days may be behind him, but he's still producing the goods on the basketball court.

Last night, Donaghy lived up to his nickname 'Star' with a brilliant display for Garvey's Tralee Warriors in their heart-stopping overtime win over UCD Marian, which leaves them on the cusp of becoming Men's Super League champions for the first time.

Reigning champions UCD Marian led by 74-64 with time running out, but with Donaghy to the fore, the Warriors fought back to tie the game at 80-apiece and send it to overtime.

They eventually prevailed 89-84 and will be crowned champions if they can repeat last night's dramatic victory over UCD Marian when they teams meet again in Tralee at 5 o'clock this evening.
