Well done to Inspirus Sports Management who organised a brillant weekend of US College Basketball in Dublin last weekend, with college bands, hot dogs and Dave Hopla (NBA Shooting Coach) atempting his shooting world record at half time. The MAAC/ASUN Dublin Basketball Challenge hosted a number of very exciting Mens and Womens games between US Division 1 College Basketball teams that included Central Arkansas, Niagara, Rider, Eastern Kentucky, Marist, Stetson & North Florida. Also well done to SETU for arranging a Dave Hopla workshop in Carlow last night where a sold out crowd got a chance to enjoy Dave Hopla tell his story while shooting the lights out all at the same time.

Episode drops Wednesday!

Havana, Cuba 2018 Full Court 21 Qualifier rain out didn’t stop me, Kobe Bryant's former shooting trainer Dave Hopla, Roman Perez and the local participants from a shooting contest. Hopla was talking mad sh*t to all of us and backing all of it up with buckets!!! He hit 25 in a row at one point—easily. Props to Full Court Peace for bringing us, as well as playground legend Jack 'Blackjack' Ryan all out to spread love. Unforgettable experience and today’s showers reminded me of this :)
Thanks Dave Hopla for your support🙌🙏🌟🏀

Next up in our 'Meet the board' series we are introducing Marc Mulholland.

Marc was brought up in a basketball family with St Gall's Basketball Club and coached in De La Salle College by, Basketball Ireland Hall of Fame Coach, Danny Fulton with Sean McGourty. He went on to represent Ireland in junior Men's European competitions and played across the US in a number of Scholar Athlete Games.

After time away from the game he returned as a player/coach with the Lisburn Scorpions and then Andersonstown Tigers Basketball Club . Joining Basketball NI Academies set up as Coach for U16 & U18 Mens team for 3 years.

Most people will know Marc for his work with the Sport Changes Life foundation and being the Executive Director of the BHOF Belfast Classic in 2017 & 2018. His passion goes beyond the court as seen with his documentary Scram Films House of Hopla. Telling the story of NBA shooting coach Dave Hopla and his time in Belfast during the early 1980's.

Most recently he was selected to represent Basketball Ireland on the FIBA TIMEOUT 2.0 Programme which is a great opportunity for Marc and BNI.

Learn a little more about Marc below and help us welcome him onboard.

Name: Marc Mulholland

Board Role: Strategy and Marketing

Club Association (if Any): No Active Club

Favourite thing to do? (other than basketball) Spending time with my family especially my two boys Luca and Leon - making movies and generally being creative.

What is your Favourite Film? That's way to tough for me, I will have to go with House of Hopla 😉failing that 'Gladiator'.

Favourite Sporting Moment? Tough to name one...I don't think anything will ever beat the feeling of bringing the first ever NCAA Basketball tournament to Belfast with the Belfast Basketball Classic with Gareth Maguire and Sport Changes Life- Then the 2018 event was also an amazing moment - seeing 5,500 schools kids cheering on basketball in The SSE Arena, Belfast on the Friday morning was something really special and I will remember it the rest of my life. I think only a few people really understand what we went through to bring such a high level event to Belfast in an aim to try and inspire people through sport. From a basketball stand point Ray Allen hitting 'the Shot' in game 6 of the NBA Finals Vs the Spurs. I then later met him at his HOF enshrinement and chatted about it along with seeing, my friend across the pond Katie Smith getting inducted was something special. I have to say recently I witnessed when Shane Lowry won The Open - It was simply amazing energy and personally I was nominated to carry the London 2012 Olympic Torch. It's an experience I will never forget.

Can you tell us something about yourself that we wouldn’t already know?

Basketball wise - Lamar Odom once dunked on me in a game - thankfully before social media existed 😅 and since the new year I have taken up Judo and love it.

If you can invite 4 people to dinner who would they be (excluding family & friends)?

Assuming currently living - Tough one - it would need to be fun - Reggie Miller 🏀, Kevin Hart 🤣, Ellen DeGeneres🥰, Spike Lee 🎬. Should be a good night with plenty to talk about but this changes day by day in lockdown 😆.

What advice would you give to your teenage self, knowing what you know today?

When you're 17 you will meet the girl you are going to spend the rest of your life with 🙌🏼. Take even more risks. Worry less. Always believe in yourself and follow your passions in life. Most importantly, be kind and take care of other people.

What are your hopes for the future for basketball in Northern Ireland?

I hope we can continue to grow the sport we love. Bring a professional approach to the sport so that it can have a sustainable future.

I would love to see it flourish in schools, see new clubs develop and the basketball community grow. Growing up basketball wasn't the coolest sport to play and thankfully that has changed massively in recent years.

I would love to see more local news stories being reported regularly in the media which I feel will generate more interest and develop potential avenues for funding.

I would hope to develop a positive culture throughout our basketball community and introduce ways for new and returning members to get involved in the sport such as Pick Up basketball and FIBA 3X3 Competitions.
It’s Halloween week😈🎃 which means there are some very exciting camps happening!

Here’s some footage from Kieran Donaghy’s ‘Be a Star’ camp last year, we hope this years camp goes well with NBA shooting coach Dave Hopla!

Always love talking hoops with HOF Coach Bob Hurley. Thanks for having me speak at your camp. Hope the weather holds up for you.


Started another summer of basketball camps. Was in El Paso, Texas June 1-3. Heading to DMV area June 15-25. Always great when you see coaches from the past and meet new ones. Nowadays I get kids coming up to me telling me that their dad saw me at camp. It's a shame that camp numbers are down. Kids just want to play, they don't want to do stations, drill work or work on fundamentals; they would rather do some real stupid stuff like pushing tractor trailer tires while dribbling. SMH
GO TO CAMP!!!!!!!!!


2018 is going to be my busiest spring and summer ever. If you would be interested in having me speak at your camp or for your company please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
