Basketball Ireland rebranded the Super League as the Premier League in 2013, but Division 1 remained the same.

In 2013-14 Portlaoise Panthers won the Division 1 title, but lost the Playoff Final to Tralee Imperials 51-33. The following year saw a repeat of the previous year for Portlaoise, again winning the League title, this time undefeated, but again going down in the Playoff Final, losing this time 63-59 to Oblate Dynamoes of Dublin. They were, however, promoted to the Premier League.

In 2015-16, NUI Galway Mystics completed the League and Playoff double, winning 79-61 in the Final against Fr. Mathews of Cork. Again the League champions failed in the Playoff Final in 2016-17, as IT Carlow lost out to neighbours Marble City Hawks of Kilkenny, 55-47, but were promoted.

In 2017-18, Marble City Hawks continued the pattern of League winners failing in the Playoff Final, as they lost to Fr. Mathews 48-43. For 2018-19 the Division was split into Northern and Southern Conferences, with Conference champions, Maree of Galway and Ulster University Elks, successfully negotiating the Playoffs and meeting in the Final, which was won by Maree, 73-65.
