It was a great evening for swingman Ieva Krastina (175-90, agency: LBM Management) who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Center Liga Surkusa (194-91) helped adding 12 points and 7 rebounds. TTT Riga's coach used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was point guard Gabriele Gutkauskaite (172-90) with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Defending Latvian champion maintains fourth place with 2-3 record. Lemminkainen at the other side dropped to the second position with two games lost. They share it with Minsk-2006. They were replaced at the leadership position by Gorizont.
