Latvijas Universitate defeated one of their biggest challengers Jurmala in Riga 66-62. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Jurmala. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 7 points after three quarters before their 20-9 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Latvijas Universitate made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. They also forced 19 Jurmala turnovers. Guard Kristaps Dargais (198-G-90) had a double-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and guard Zanis Peiners (204-90, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 15 points and 8 rebounds during the contest. Latvijas Universitate's coach Arturs Visockis-Rubenis used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side forward Atis Ozols (199-81) responded with 14 points and 8 rebounds. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Newly promoted Jurmala keeps the fourth place with four games lost.

Jurmala's coach Jevgenijs Kosuskins allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 29 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists by American forward P.J. Hill jr. (182-87, college: Ohio St.) did not help to save the game for Jekabpils. Newly promoted Jurmala maintains fourth position with 5-4 record. Jekabpils lost third consecutive game. Jekabpils at the other side, also newcomer in the league, dropped to the eighth place with six games lost. They share the position with Turiba.
