The biggest surprise of round 14 in LBL was guest Barons kvartals' (5-6) easy road victory over 7th ranked Jelgava (4-7) 83-66 on Thursday evening. The game without a history. Barons kvartals led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Jelgava's 30. Barons kvartals forced 19 Jelgava turnovers and outrebounded them 52-37 including 18 on the offensive glass. 25 personal fouls committed by Jelgava helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was Portuguese forward Maris Gulbis (202-85, agency: Players Group) who scored 21 points and 8 rebounds. Spanish forward Aigars Skele (192-92) chipped in 17 points and 6 rebounds (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!). Forward Andris Justovics (200-89) produced 22 points for the hosts. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Barons kvartals moved-up to seventh place. Jelgava lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth position with seven games lost. Barons kvartals are looking forward to face Turiba (#10) on the road in the next round. Jelgava will play against Jekabpils and is hoping to win this game.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Riga. First ranked Valmiera faced second-ranked Latvijas Universitate. Guests from Valmiera (9-3) defeated host Latvijas Universitate (7-5) 75-66. Power forward Artjoms Butjankovs (205-91, agency: FCM) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 17 rebounds. Janis Berzins contributed with 14 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Guard Kristaps Dargais (198-90) replied with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds for Latvijas Universitate. Latvijas Universitate's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Valmiera have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 9-3 record. Latvijas Universitate at the other side keeps the second place with five games lost. They share the position with Jurmala. Valmiera will play against Jurmala (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Latvijas Universitate will play against Jekabpils and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 14 Turiba was defeated by Liepaja in a road game 88-73.
