Audentes SG/N. forced 21 Tartu U. turnovers and outrebounded them 50-29 including a 31-15 advantage in defensive rebounds. 37 personal fouls committed by Tartu U. helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.

The best player for the winners was Laina Mesila-Kaarmann who scored 24 points and 5 rebounds. Anete Vorma produced 7 points and 6 rebounds for the hosts.
