Raitis Grafs
KML round 20 caused change at the leadership position. Sixth defeat of league's leader BC Rakvere (17-6) against sixth ranked Valga (10-13) 66-59 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of BC Rakvere. The hosts trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 39-28 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Valga had a 34-23 advantage in offensive rebounds. Latvian center Raitis Grafs (208-81, college: Valparaiso) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 13 rebounds. Serbian guard Sasa Djordjevic (190-85) contributed with 17 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. The former international point guard Reimo Tamm (185-84) replied with 21 points for BC Rakvere. Valga maintains sixth position with 10-13 record. BC Rakvere at the other side dropped to the second place with six games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by TU/Rock. BC Rakvere will play next round against strong TTU trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Valga will try to continue on its current victory against fifth ranked Rapla on the road.
The game in Tallinn was also worth to mention about. Sixth ranked Rapla (10-11) played at the court of 8th ranked Tln Kalev (5-19). Rapla managed to secure a 5-point victory 75-70. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Rait-Riivo Laane (179-93) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and Raido Ringmets who added 10 points and 12 rebounds during the contest. Forward Janis Vahter (193-86) responded with 16 points and 7 rebounds. Tln Kalev's coach Kalle Klandorf rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Rapla have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Tln Kalev lost third consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 19 games lost. Rapla will play against Valga (#6) at home in the next round. Tln Kalev will play against KK Parnu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between 9th ranked Hito/Johvi (1-20) and top-ranked TU/Rock (17-0) in Johvi on Friday ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Tartu outscored Hito/Johvi 90-51. The winners were led by Kristo Saage who scored that evening 22 points. Even 10 points and 6 rebounds by Edvard Trumm did not help to save the game for Hito/Johvi. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated TU/Rock have an impressive 12-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. Hito/Johvi lost twentiethth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 20 lost games. TU/Rock will meet at home KK Parnu (#7) in the next round where they are favorite. Hito/Johvi will play against KK Parnu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 20 TTU beat Hito/Johvi on the road 77-59. Valga lost to Parnu on its own court 62-72.
The most impressive performance of 20th round was 18 points and 12 rebounds by Rain Raadik of Parnu.

Hito/Johvi - TTU 59-77

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked TTU (12-9) beat on the road bottom-ranked Hito/Johvi (1-20) 77-59 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by TTU. Hito/Johvi managed to win fourth quarter 19-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The winners were led by the former international power forward Kristjan Makke (205-81, college: W.Illinois) who scored that evening 19 points and 5 rebounds and the former international forward Erik Keedus (198-90) supported him with 8 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Four TTU players scored in double figures. Even 10 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists by guard Siim Laur (189-87) did not help to save the game for Hito/Johvi. Georg Tambre (194-94) added 8 points and 5 rebounds for the hosts. Hito/Johvi's coach Priit Sternhof tested twelve players seeing no chance for a win. TTU have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 12-9 record. Hito/Johvi lost twentiethth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 20 lost games. TTU will meet at home league's second-placed BC Rakvere in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Hito/Johvi will play against KK Parnu (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Valga - Parnu 62-72

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 6th ranked Valga (10-13) lost at home to seventh ranked KK Parnu (8-12) 72-62 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 12-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 72-62.

The winners were led by international center Rain Raadik (208-89) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds and Lithuanian guard Augustas Peciukevicius (192-91) supported him with 17 points. Even 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists by Serbian guard Sasa Djordjevic (190-85) did not help to save the game for Valga. Latvian center Raitis Grafs (208-81, college: Valparaiso) added 11 points and 5 rebounds for the hosts. KK Parnu maintains seventh position with 8-12 record. Loser Valga keeps the sixth place with 13 games lost. KK Parnu will meet bottom-ranked Hito/Johvi (#9) on the road in the next round.
