Mario Paiste
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Alexela KML.

The most exciting game of round 22 in the Alexela KML took place in Tallinn. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of 6th ranked TLU/Kalev (8-15) to eighth ranked BC Rakvere (7-17) 87-86 on Friday evening. TLU/Kalev was trailing by 7 points at halftime but managed to get 2-point lead after three quarters before a 21-18 charge of BC Rakvere, which allowed them to win the game. They made 20-of-26 free shots (76.9 percent) during the game. 25 personal fouls committed by TLU/Kalev helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Guard Mario Paiste (186-89) scored 15 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists to lead the charge for the winners and forward Karl-Johan Lips (198-96) chipped in 11 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side the former international point guard Reimo Tamm (188-84) responded with 21 points. BC Rakvere maintains eighth position with 7-17 record. TLU/Kalev at the other side keeps the sixth place with 15 games lost. BC Rakvere are looking forward to face higher ranked Parnu (#4) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. TLU/Kalev will play against the league's leader Tartu Ulikool having rather not much hope for a victory.
Important game to mention about took place in Rapla. Third ranked Rapla (15-9) saved a 2-point victory at home edging one of their biggest challengers Parnu (13-11) 93-91 in the fight for the third place. International Martin Paasoja (191-93) notched 28 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his nine free throws !!!) to lead the effort and Thomas van-der-Mars supported him with 24 points and 11 rebounds (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field). Even 30 points and 8 rebounds by Lithuanian swingman Edvinas Seskus (196-95, agency: Players Group) did not help to save the game for Parnu. Rapla maintains third position with 15-9 record having three points less than leader Tartu Ulikool. Parnu at the other side keeps the fourth place with 11 games lost. Rapla will play against Valga (#7) at home in the next round. Parnu will play against BC Rakvere and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Alexela KML top team - Tartu Ulikool (20-2) had no problems winning another game on Thursday. This time they crushed fifth ranked TTU (12-10) 94-72. Maks-Adam Konate fired a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds for the winners. Joonas Jarvelainen produced 17 points for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Tartu Ulikool have an impressive 11-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 20-2 record. Loser TTU keeps the fifth place with ten games lost. Tartu Ulikool will meet TLU/Kalev (#6) in the next round where they are favorite. TTU's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Tallinn to the arena Noorteliiga.
Third ranked Rapla (15-9) crushed at home 8th ranked BC Rakvere (7-17) by 35 points 92-57, which is the biggest margin this round. Worth to mention a great performance of Indrek Kajupank who helped to win the game recording 19 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. BC Rakvere's coach gave up on the game allowing to play twelve players seeing no chance for a win. Rapla maintains third position with 15-9 record having three points less than leader Tartu Ulikool. BC Rakvere at the other side keeps the eighth place with 17 games lost. Rapla's next round opponent will be Valga (#7) at home. BC Rakvere will play against Parnu and hope to win that game.
