Magic began with a 77-19 win over Ballyshannon, then followed that with victories over Galway Titans (52-34), Sligo All Stars (37-12) and Dublin Sonics (35-26).

Their final group game was against Blue Demons, winning 50-28 before defeating the same opponents in the final a few hours later.

Magic coach Gary Williams praised his players on Twitter, quickly turning his attentions to the National League play-offs, which start later this month.

"So proud to coach the U14 boys with Coach Sam Gray this year! Great bunch of lads and parents! Onto the playoffs

"Shoutout to for inviting us over for the U14 International. Great hosts as always for a great Irish basketball programme"
