Liepaja - Ventspils 70-94 (1-1)

The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 94-70. Ventspils made 17-of-20 free shots (85.0 percent) during the game. It was a great shooting night for Ventspils especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 61.1 percentage. American guard Jahmar Young (196-86, college: N.Mexico St.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 25 points and 6 rebounds. International center Arturs Berzins (204-88, agency: FCM) contributed with 20 points (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for the winners. Four Ventspils players scored in double figures. Swingman Janis Timma (201-92, agency: FCM) replied with 20 points and 5 rebounds and American guard Josh Mayo (182-87, college: Ill.-Chicago, agency: Ryzhov Stanislav) added 16 points (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!) in the effort for Liepaja. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
Top scorers:
Liepaja: J.Timma 20+5reb+1ast, J.Mayo 16+4reb+3ast, M.Kravcenko 8+2reb+5ast, T.Leiteris 8+4reb, A.Bricis 6+1reb+1ast, K.Miglinieks 5+1reb+1ast

LU - VEF Riga 47-112 (0-2)

The game without a history. VEF Riga led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Latvijas Universitate to just 2 points in fourth quarter. VEF Riga held Latvijas Universitate to an opponent 18.8 percent shooting from the field compared to 59.7 percent accuracy of the winners. VEF Riga forced 21 Latvijas Universitate turnovers and outrebounded them 48-33 including a 33-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. VEF Riga players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists comparing to just 5 passes made by Latvijas Universitate's players. Latvijas Universitate was plagued by 26 personal fouls down the stretch. Lithuanian forward Donatas Zavackas (203-80, college: Pittsburgh) scored 20 points and 8 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international power forward Kaspars Berzins (213-85) chipped in 22 points and 6 rebounds (on 9-of-10 shooting from the field) during the contest. Five VEF Riga players scored in double figures. Guard Zanis Peiners (203-90, agency: Interperformances) responded with 16 points and guard Kristaps Dargais (195-90) scored 8 points and 7 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.
Top scorers:
LU: Z.Peiners 16+2reb+1ast, K.Dargais 8+7reb+1ast, M.Vitols 6+5reb+1ast, Z.Plivda 5+5reb+1ast, I.Aizpurs 4+4reb+1ast, R.Zebergs 3+4reb
VEF Riga: K.Berzins 22+6reb, D.Zavackas 20+8reb+3ast, A.Kavaliauskas 16+9reb+1ast, C.Millage 13+5reb+4ast, K.Janicenoks 13+2reb+6ast, S.Valters 10+5reb+4ast
