LYIT Donegal guard Shannon Cunningham was named as the Division 1 Player of the Month for December.

Cunningham had a stellar month for LYIT Donegal, topped off when she scored 40 points in a win over Limerick Celtics.

Cunningham hit high notes in the 82 to 69 win at St Munchin’s College having bagged 20 points in a home win over Marble City Hawks a week previously.

The Letterkenny Blaze clubwoman has taken with ease to the national league courts.

Ireland finish joint top of Group A in European Qualifying with three wins from four matches, only to be eliminated on a count-back with Cunningham’s team-mate Maria Kealy also donning the Irish jersey.
