Demonte
Harper
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of TU/Rock (7-1) in Tallinn on Thursday night. Visitors were rolled over by fourth ranked Kalev/Cramo (5-2) 86-63. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of TU/Rock. The game was mostly controlled by Kalev/Cramo. TU/Rock managed to win second period 22-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Kalev/Cramo dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to TU/Rock's 32. It was a good game for American guard Demonte Harper (193-89, college: Morehead St.) who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 5 rebounds. American-Bulgarian power forward Cedric Simmons (206-86, college: N.Carolina St.) contributed with 11 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. International Janari Joesaar (198-93, college: UTRGV) answered with 16 points and 7 rebounds for TU/Rock. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Kalev/Cramo have an impressive series of five victories in a row. Defending champion maintains fourth place with 5-2 record. TU/Rock at the other side still keeps top position with one game lost. Kalev/Cramo's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tallinn to the arena TLU/Kalev.
Bottom-ranked Noorteliiga is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their seventh consecutive match to fourth ranked Kalev/Cramo (5-2) 102-69. The former international forward Erik Keedus (198-90) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners and Martin Dorbek chipped in 20 points and 4 assists. The best for the losing side was power forward Madis Soodla (205-97) with 16 points and 8 rebounds. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for Kalev/Cramo. Defending champion maintains fourth place with 5-2 record. Noorteliiga lost their seventh game in a row. They still close the standings with seven games lost. Kalev/Cramo's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tallinn to the arena TLU/Kalev.

Justin Baker came up with 14 points and 8 rebounds for BC Rakvere in the defeat. BC Rakvere's coach rotated eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Rapla moved-up to second place. Loser BC Rakvere dropped to the seventh position with six games lost. Rapla will meet at home Valga (#6) in the next round.
