Sten Olmre
The Regular Season in Alexela KML is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

The most exciting game of round 20 in the Alexela KML took place in Rapla. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of one of their biggest challengers Rapla (12-8) to second ranked Kalev/Cramo (15-2) 80-77 in the game for the second place. The guests trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 80-77. Kalev/Cramo have an impressive 15-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains second position with 15-2 record having 3 victories less than leader Tartu Ulikool. Rapla at the other side keeps the third place with eight games lost. They share the position with TTU. Kalev/Cramo will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Rapla will play at home against the league's leader Tartu Ulikool and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Tallinn: TTU (#5) and TLU/Kalev (#6). TLU/Kalev was defeated at home 85-92 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Sten Olmre (192-95) orchestrated the victory by scoring 26 points and 5 assists. Kiur Akenparg contributed with 20 points for the winners. The former international point guard Kristo Saage (186-85) replied with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for TLU/Kalev. TLU/Kalev's coach Kalle Klandorf rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. TTU (12-8) moved-up to third place, which they share with Rapla. TLU/Kalev at the other side keeps the sixth position with 14 games lost. TTU will play against BC Rakvere (#8) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. TLU/Kalev will play against Parnu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Rapla (12-8) against fourth ranked Parnu (12-9) on Tuesday night. Visiting Rapla was defeated by Parnu in Parnu 64-49. Worth to mention a great performance of Domagoj Bubalo who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Thomas van-der-Mars responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds. Parnu have a solid three-game winning streak. Despite that victory Parnu went down to fifth position due to points difference. Loser Rapla keeps the third place with eight games lost. They share the position with TTU. Parnu will meet at home TLU/Kalev (#6) in the next round. Rapla will play against the league's leader Tartu Ulikool and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Tartu Ulikool delivered the eighteenth victory. This time they crushed 8th ranked BC Rakvere (5-15) 91-67. The winners were led by Mandell Thomas who scored that evening 23 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 steals. BC Rakvere's coach gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Tartu Ulikool (18-2) have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They maintain first position. BC Rakvere lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 15 games lost. Tartu Ulikool's next round opponent will be Rapla (#4) on the road. BC Rakvere will play against Valga (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Rakvere was also quite interesting. Sixth ranked TLU/Kalev (7-14) played at the court of 8th ranked BC Rakvere (5-15). TLU/Kalev did not have too big problems and got a relatively easy victory 88-69 on Tuesday. The best player for the winners was Djordje Dzeletovic who had a double-double by scoring 27 points and 10 rebounds (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. TLU/Kalev maintains sixth position with 7-14 record. BC Rakvere lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 15 games lost. TLU/Kalev will face higher ranked Parnu (#5) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.

In the last game of round 20 Valga was crushed by TTU in Tallinn 102-77.
