The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Riga: VEF Riga (#4) and Barons kvartals (#6). Barons kvartals were defeated at home 72-84 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Barons kvartals. The game was mostly controlled by VEF Riga. Barons kvartals managed to win fourth quarter 17-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. 27 personal fouls committed by Barons kvartals helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a great evening for American-Bulgarian guard Earl Rowland (188-83, college: St.Mary's, CA) who led his team to a victory scoring 10 points and 9 assists. Lithuanian center Antanas Kavaliauskas (207-84, college: Texas A&M, agency: Interperformances) helped adding 13 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side American forward Tyler Cain (203-88, college: S.Dakota) responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds. Barons kvartals' coach Martins Gulbis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. VEF Riga have a solid series of four victories in a row. Defending champion (9-1) moved-up to third place. Barons kvartals at the other side dropped to the seventh position with seven games lost. VEF Riga will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Barons kvartals will play at home against Jelgava (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Second ranked Jekabpils (10-7) crushed at home 9th ranked Liepaja (5-10) by 39 points 106-67, which is the biggest margin this round. It was a quality performance for American center Todd O'Brien (213-89, college: UAB) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 28 points and 12 rebounds. Jurijs Aleksejevs accounted for 23 points and 9 rebounds. Arturs Bricis (196-92) came up with 13 points and 5 assists for Liepaja in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Jekabpils have a solid series of four victories in a row. Newly promoted Jekabpils maintains second place with 10-7 record behind leader Valmiera. Liepaja lost third consecutive game. They keep the ninth position with ten games lost. Jekabpils will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
