The most exciting game of round 18 in the LBL took place in Turiba. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 4th ranked Jelgava (9-9) to seventh ranked Turiba (7-11) 75-72 on Friday evening. The hosts trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 25-19 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Turiba forced 22 Jelgava turnovers. Center Roberts Mednis (204-89) scored 21 points to lead the charge for the winners and guard Krists Piternieks (202-87, agency: Dynamics Global Management) chipped in 13 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. Turiba's coach used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was swingman Edgars Krumins (194-86) with 30 points and 8 rebounds. Turiba have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain seventh position with 7-11 record. Jelgava at the other side keeps the fourth place with nine games lost. Turiba are looking forward to face higher ranked Liepaja (#3) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Jelgava will play against the league's second-placed Ventspils where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Even 12 points by guard Edgars Stelmahers (185-94) did not help to save the game for U18. U18's coach gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Valmiera maintains first position with 12-7 record. Newly promoted U18 still closes the standings with nine games lost. Valmiera will play against Latvijas Universitate (#6) in Riga in the next round where they are favorite. U18 will play at home against the league's second-placed Ventspils and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Jurmala was also quite interesting. 7th ranked Turiba (7-11) played at the court of eighth ranked Jurmala (5-13). Jurmala managed to secure a 9-point victory 91-82 on Monday.

At the other side the best for losing team was Roberts Mednis who recorded 20 points and 8 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Newly promoted Jurmala maintains eighth position with 5-13 record. Loser Turiba keeps the seventh place with 11 games lost. Jurmala will meet at home bottom-ranked U18 (#9) in the next round. Turiba will play against Liepaja and hope to secure a win.
