LBL is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 10 rounds left. Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The game had a very big importance for third-ranked Latvijas Universitate as it allowed them to take a leadership position. 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 will have a break next week, which should allow them to rest in order to get back on the winning path. Latvijas Universitate will try to continue on its current victory against third ranked Valmiera on the road.
Important game to mention about took place in Jurmala. Fourth ranked Jurmala (5-4) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 10th ranked Jekabpils (3-6) 87-86 on Wednesday evening.

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. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.

Mikus Sokolovs fired 21 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Andzejs Pasecniks produced a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds for lost side. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Turiba maintains eighth position with 3-6 record, which they share with Jekabpils. Newly promoted U18 stay at the bottom place with five games lost. Turiba will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. U18 will play against Jelgava (#6).
