The game had a very big importance for second-ranked BC Rakvere as it allowed them to take a leadership position. BC Rakvere edged 5th ranked Valga at home 75-74. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 23-14. But Valga won second period 19-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. BC Rakvere forced 25 Valga turnovers. Strangely Valga outrebounded BC Rakvere 41-27 including 26 on the defensive glass. 29 personal fouls committed by Valga helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Latvian swingman Juris Umbrasko (197-79) scored 15 points and 5 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international point guard Reimo Tamm (185-84) chipped in 11 points and 5 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was Latvian guard Edgars Cunda (195-84) with 21 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Valga lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 12 games lost. Valga will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. BC Rakvere will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Tln Kalev in Tallinn.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Tallinn: TTU (#4) and Tln Kalev (#8). Tln Kalev was smashed at home by 30 points 43-73 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The former international forward Erik Keedus (198-90) notched 9 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort and Kiur Akenparg supported him with 16 points and 5 rebounds. Even 13 points and 4 assists by American-Italian guard Marc Campbell (180-86, college: N.Carolina) did not help to save the game for Tln Kalev. Tln Kalev's coach Kalle Klandorf gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. TTU maintains fourth position with 11-9 record. Tln Kalev lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 16 games lost. TTU's supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Tallinn .

Valga lost third consecutive game. They keep the fifth place with 12 games lost. Tln Kalev will meet league's leader BC Rakvere on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Valga will have a break next round.
Fourth ranked TTU (11-9) crushed at home 9th ranked Hito/Johvi (1-18) by 32 points 103-71, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a good game for Erik Keedus who led his team to a victory with 21 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists and 7 steals. Hito/Johvi's coach Priit Sternhof already knew that his team would not have a big chance, so allowed to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. TTU maintains fourth position with 11-9 record. Hito/Johvi lost eighteenth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 18 lost games. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
