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.
