LSBL top team - Cesis (11-0) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed ninth ranked Kolibri/U-16 (3-8) 89-43. The game was mostly controlled by Cesis. Kolibri/U-16 managed to win second period 15-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Kolibri/U-16 to just 7 points in first quarter. Cesis dominated down low during the game scoring 50 of its points in the paint compared to Kolibri/U-16's 24. Cesis forced 28 Kolibri/U-16 turnovers and outrebounded them 43-30 including 28 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 4 passes made by Kolibri/U-16's players. International forward Zane Jakobsone (180-85, college: Houston, agency: Josep and Nicolas) orchestrated the victory by scoring 31 points and 9 rebounds. The former international guard Anda Eibele (170-84, agency: Josep and Nicolas) contributed with 13 points and 15 assists for the winners. Forward Paula Strautmane (184-97) replied with 9 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks for Kolibri/U-16. Kolibri/U-16's coach Ainars Cukste gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Undefeated Cesis have an impressive 11-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 11-0 record. Newly promoted Kolibri/U-16 keeps the ninth place with eight games lost. They share the position with LU.
