LBL Round 27: Barons kvartals keep a leadership position - Feb 17, 2013


POSTED BY:

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Barons kvartals as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Barons kvartals smashed 6th ranked Jelgava in Riga 100-81. The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 100-81. Barons kvartals had a 32-20 advantage in offensive rebounds. 26 personal fouls committed by Jelgava helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for American forward Tyler Cain (203-88, college: S.Dakota) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks. His fellow American import guard Jamar Diggs (187-88, college: Wofford, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) contributed with 13 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. Forward Lauris Mizis (198-89) answered with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 12 rebounds for Jelgava. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Jelgava at the other side keeps the sixth place with 11 games lost. Jelgava will play next round against strong Jekabpils trying to get back on the winning streak. Barons kvartals will try to continue on its current victory against second ranked Valmiera on the road.
Important game to mention about took place in Valmiera. Eighth ranked Jurmala (10-13) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging second-best Valmiera (14-9) 65-62 on Sunday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Valmiera. It was a great evening for forward Atis Ozols (199-81) who led his team to a victory scoring 13 points and 7 rebounds. Roberts Mednis helped adding 13 points and 5 rebounds. Jurmala's coach Jevgenijs Kosuskins allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. The best for the losing side was power forward Maris Ziedins (203-90) with 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Jurmala moved-up to seventh place. Valmiera at the other side keeps the second position with nine games lost. They share it with Jekabpils. Jurmala will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Valmiera will play at home against the league's leader Barons kvartals where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
The game between fourth ranked Ventspils (12-1) and 7th ranked Latvijas Universitate (10-15) in Ventspils on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. Ventspils outscored guests from Riga 95-60. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Latvijas Universitate. It was a quality performance for Janis Timma who led the winners and scored 16 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Kristaps Dargais came up with 14 points and 6 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. Ventspils have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 12-1 record. Loser Latvijas Universitate dropped to the eighth position with 15 games lost. Ventspils will meet bottom-ranked U18 (#11) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Latvijas Universitate's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Riga VEF Riga.

In the last game of round 27 Jekabpils beat Turiba on the road 93-83.



Valmiera - Jurmala 62-65

Important game to mention about took place in Valmiera. Eighth ranked Jurmala (10-13) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging second-best Valmiera (14-9) 65-62 on Sunday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Valmiera. Valmiera was ahead by 2 points at the halftime before a 16-8 third quarter run of Jurmala. They made 19-of-21 charity shots (90.5 percent) during the game. It was a great evening for forward Atis Ozols (199-81) who led his team to a victory scoring 13 points and 7 rebounds. Center Roberts Mednis (204-89) helped adding 13 points and 5 rebounds. Four Jurmala players scored in double figures. Jurmala's coach Jevgenijs Kosuskins allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. The best for the losing side was power forward Maris Ziedins (203-90) with 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists and forward Janis Berzins (202-93, agency: Players Group) scored 11 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Jurmala moved-up to seventh place. Valmiera at the other side keeps the second position with nine games lost. They share it with Jekabpils. Jurmala will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
