Janar Talts
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of TTU (5-2) in Tallinn on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by TU/Rock (5-0) 75-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of TTU. The guests trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 42-29 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. It was a good game for Janar Talts (206-83) who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 5 rebounds. American guard Mandell Thomas (188-93, college: Fordham) contributed with 10 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. TU/Rock's coach Gert Kullamae used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Power forward Joonas Jarvelainen (202-90, agency: Octagon Europe) replied with 24 points and 9 rebounds for TTU. Undefeated TU/Rock have an impressive five-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. TTU at the other side dropped to the second place with two games lost. TU/Rock are looking forward to face Rapla (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. TTU will have a break next round.
Kalev/Cramo's fans can finally celebrate the first win of their team after two consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Rakvere, where they outplayed BC Rakvere (2-4) 107-77. American Mark Tollefsen (206-92, college: Arizona) had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Erik Keedus chipped in 12 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American power forward Justin Baker (203-89, college: Utah Valley) with 26 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending champion maintains seventh position with 1-2 record. BC Rakvere at the other side dropped to the sixth place with four games lost. Kalev/Cramo will play against higher ranked Parnu (#5) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. BC Rakvere will play against Valga and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked TLU/Kalev is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their fifth consecutive match to third ranked Rapla (4-1) 79-76 on Saturday evening. Thomas van der Mars notched a double-double by scoring 15 points and 16 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 28 points and 6 assists by Jahmal Jones did not help to save the game for TLU/Kalev. Rapla have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 4-1 record behind leader TU/Rock. Loser TLU/Kalev still closes the standings with five games lost. Rapla will meet league's leader TU/Rock in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. TLU/Kalev will play against Valga (#4) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Noorteliiga is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their fourth consecutive match to sixth ranked Parnu (3-3) 101-55. The best player for the winners was Vaidotas Volkus who scored 26 points and 7 rebounds.
