The most exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Riga: RTU-Merks (#5) and TTT Juniores (#7). TTT Juniores were crushed at home by 22 points 47-69 and even the advantage of their own court did not help. The game was mostly controlled by RTU-Merks. TTT Juniores managed to win fourth quarter 14-12. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. RTU-Merks forced 19 TTT Juniores turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Asnate Fomina (176-94) who helped to win the game recording 15 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists. Center Daina Lazdeniece (187-89) contributed with 15 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. RTU-Merks' coach Aivars Vinbergs felt very confident using 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Guard Kate Aizsila (172-94) answered with 24 points for TTT Juniores. RTU-Merks have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Liepajas. TTT Juniores at the other side dropped to the eighth position with ten games lost. RTU-Merks is looking forward to face league's leader Cesis at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. TTT Juniores will have a break next round.
The game in Audentes was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Liepajas (11-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Audentes SG/N. (7-10). Liepajas managed to secure a 4-point victory 72-68. It was a great evening for power forward Sabine Egle (179-91) who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 16 rebounds. Joncelyn Peterkin helped adding 19 points and 8 rebounds. At the losing side Estonian center Trine Kasemagi (190-95) responded with 21 points and 8 rebounds. Liepajas have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with RTU-Merks. Audentes SG/N. at the other side keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. Liepajas will play against Rapla KK (#9) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Audentes SG/N. will have a break next round.
The game between second ranked TTT Riga (15-2) and 11th ranked Latvijas Universitate (3-14) in Riga on Wednesday ended with biggest points difference. TTT Riga outscored guests from Riga 103-41. It was a quality performance for Ieva Krastina who led the winners and scored 23 points and 9 rebounds. Paula Luke came up with 4 points and 8 rebounds for Latvijas Universitate 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. Defending champion maintains second place with 15-2 record having just -2 point less than leader Cesis. Latvijas Universitate lost their eighth game in a row. They keep the eleventh position with 14 games lost. TTT Riga will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Latvijas Universitate will play against Rapla KK (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games in round 19 were not that significant. Kolibri/U-16 was smashed by Audentes SG/N. on the road 77-53. Eclex Tallinn won against Liepajas on its own court 80-67. Kolibri/U-16 were outscored by Eclex Tallinn in a road game 86-42.

Audentes SG/N. - Liepajas 68-72

The game in Audentes was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Liepajas (11-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Audentes SG/N. (7-10). Liepajas managed to secure a 4-point victory 72-68. Audentes SG/N. was tied at the half but could not keep up in last two quarters eventually losing the game. It was a great evening for power forward Sabine Egle (179-91) who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 16 rebounds.

Audentes SG/N. - Kolibri/U-16 77-53

No shocking result in a game when seventh ranked Audentes SG/N. (7-10) crushed at home 9th ranked Kolibri/U-16 (3-13) 77-53 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Audentes SG/N..
