POSTED BY:

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked Valmiera (11-5) at the home court on Friday night. Hosts were edged by sixth ranked VEF Riga (7-1) in overtime 107-105. The guests trailed by 6 points after three quarters before their 31-25 charge, which allowed them to tie the game at the end of regular time and get a 2-point victory in overtime. 27 personal fouls committed by Valmiera helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for American-Bulgarian guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA) who led his team to a victory with 32 points and 9 assists. Lithuanian center Antanas Kavaliauskas (207-84, college: Texas A&M, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 17 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Forward Janis Berzins (202-93, agency: Players Group) replied with 24 points and 8 rebounds for Valmiera. Defending champion moved-up to fifth place. Valmiera at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. VEF Riga's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Riga to the arena Barons kvartals.



Barons kvartals - LU 73-70

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams when eighth ranked Barons kvartals (7-6) edged 7th ranked Latvijas Universitate (7-9) in Riga 73-70 on Saturday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 16-13. But Latvijas Universitate won second period 17-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Barons kvartals won last quarter 18-17. Barons kvartals outrebounded Latvijas Universitate 44-26 including a 30-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. Latvijas Universitate was plagued by 32 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a good game for forward Maris Gulbis (202-85, agency: Players Group) who led his team to a victory with 23 points and 9 rebounds. American forward Tyler Cain (203-88, college: S.Dakota) contributed with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Guard Zanis Peiners (204-90, agency: Interperformances) replied with 26 points and forward Klavs Strazdins (192-93) added 17 points and 7 rebounds in the effort for Latvijas Universitate. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Barons kvartals have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place. Latvijas Universitate lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth position with nine games lost. Barons kvartals' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Riga VEF Riga.

Jurmala - Liepaja 82-64

Rather expected game when 9th ranked Liepaja (5-9) lost on the road to sixth ranked Jurmala (8-7) 82-64 on Saturday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Jurmala dominated on the defensive end, holding Liepaja to just 6 points in third quarter. It was a good game for forward Janis Dilevka (200-88) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds. Center Roberts Mednis (204-89) contributed with 10 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Five Jurmala players scored in double figures.

Jelgava - Turiba 108-94

Rather predictable result when eighth ranked Jelgava (7-7) won against at home 10th ranked Turiba (3-12) 108-94 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Jelgava. Turiba was better in second period 31-28. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Turiba 43-28 including 29 on the defensive glass. Turiba was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a good game for swingman Edgars Krumins (194-86) who led his team to a victory with 21 points and 5 rebounds. Forward Lauris Mizis (198-89) contributed with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds (perfect from the field making all six shots) for the winners. Forward Matiss Rudmiezis (190-91) replied with 24 points and forward Karlis Apsitis (200-92) added 23 points in the effort for Turiba. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. Jelgava have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to seventh place. Turiba lost seventh consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 12 games lost. Jelgava will face higher ranked Jurmala (#4) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Turiba will play against VEF Riga (#5).
Top scorers:

Ventspils - U18 96-62

Not a big story in a game when 11th ranked U18 (1-9) was outscored on the road by third ranked Ventspils (8-1) 96-62 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Ventspils. U18 was better in fourth quarter 21-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to U18's 28. They outrebounded U18 41-22 including a 30-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. Ventspils looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by U18's players. It was a good game for international forward Janis Timma (201-92, agency: FCM) who led his team to a victory with a triple-double by scoring 13 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. American point guard Donald Sims (185-87, college: Appalachian St.) contributed with 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Five Ventspils players scored in double figures. Guard Davis Geks (190-95) replied with 16 points and 8 rebounds and center Andzejs Pasecniks (211-95) added 13 points in the effort for U18. U18's coach Nikolajs Mazurs gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Ventspils have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 8-1 record having ten point less than leader Valmiera. U18 lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom place with nine games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.

Valmiera - VEF Riga 105-107 OT

The most surprising game was another loss of top-ranked Valmiera (11-5) at the home court on Friday night. Hosts were edged by sixth ranked VEF Riga (7-1) in overtime 107-105. The guests trailed by 6 points after three quarters before their 31-25 charge, which allowed them to tie the game at the end of regular time and get a 2-point victory in overtime. 27 personal fouls committed by Valmiera helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.
