Janis Timma
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of top-ranked Valmiera (12-7) on the court of fourth ranked Ventspils on Friday night. Visitors were rolled over by Ventspils 102-71. The game without a history. Ventspils led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 46 of its points in the paint compared to Valmiera's 26 and made 26-of-34 free shots (76.5 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Valmiera 37-23 including a 30-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Ventspils especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 71.4 percentage. 24 personal fouls committed by Valmiera helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. International forward Janis Timma (201-92, agency: FCM) scored 20 points (perfect from the field making all six shots) to lead the charge for the winners and American point guard Donald Sims (185-87, college: Appalachian St.) chipped in 20 points during the contest. Ventspils' coach Roberts Stelmahers felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side forward Janis Berzins (202-93, agency: Players Group) responded with 17 points and 5 rebounds. Ventspils (10-1) have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position. Valmiera at the other side still keeps top place with seven games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
LBL top team - Valmiera (12-7) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed ninth ranked Liepaja (6-13) 87-62. Forward Janis Berzins (202-93, agency: Players Group) notched 22 points and 8 rebounds to lead the effort and Viktors Iljins supported him with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Coach Varis Krumins's team controlled all game and the coach could let to play 11 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Even 20 points and 5 rebounds by guard Roberts Krastins (194-94) did not help to save the game for Liepaja. Valmiera maintains first position with 12-7 record. Liepaja at the other side keeps the ninth place with 13 games lost. Valmiera will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Liepaja will play at home against Latvijas Universitate (#8) in Riga and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Riga supposed to be also quite interesting. Seventh ranked Jelgava (9-9) played at the court of 8th ranked Latvijas Universitate (8-11).

Kristaps Dargais produced a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds for lost side. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Jelgava moved-up to sixth place. Loser Latvijas Universitate keeps the eighth position with 11 games lost. Jelgava will meet higher ranked Jekabpils (#3) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.
