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.
