Sirsnins
Round 29 in LBL means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Jekabpils where host Jekabpils (16-9) beat league's leader Valmiera (15-10) 83-71 on Thursday evening. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 2 points at the halftime before their 44-30 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Jekabpils dominated down low during the game scoring 46 of its points in the paint compared to Valmiera's 26 and made 22-of-26 free shots (84.6 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Valmiera 46-29 including a 18-7 advantage in offensive rebounds. 24 personal fouls committed by Valmiera helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was the former international point guard Rinalds Sirsnins (186-85) who scored 22 points and 5 assists. American center Todd O'Brien (213-89, college: UAB) chipped in 18 points and 8 rebounds. Forward Janis Berzins (202-93, agency: Players Group) produced 16 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the guests. Jekabpils have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Barons kvartals. Valmiera at the other side dropped to the third place with ten games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Jekabpils. Valmiera will play next round against Liepaja trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Jekabpils will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
The game in Jurmala was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Barons kvartals (16-9) played at the court of 7th ranked Jurmala (10-14). Barons kvartals managed to secure a 7-point victory 84-77. American forward Tyler Cain (203-88, college: S.Dakota) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 15 rebounds. Jamar Diggs contributed with 21 points and 4 assists for the winners. Barons kvartals' coach Martins Gulbis allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. point guard Davis Coders (188-92) answered with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for Jurmala. Barons kvartals keep a position of league leader, which they share with Jekabpils. Jurmala at the other side keeps the seventh place with 14 games lost. Barons kvartals will play against Jelgava (#6) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Jurmala will play against Latvijas Universitate in Riga and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Jelgava, where 6th ranked Jelgava (10-13) lost at home to ninth ranked Liepaja (10-15) 70-84 on Wednesday. Pierce Caldwell stepped up with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Keith Chamberlain responded with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 rebounds. Liepaja have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to eighth place. Jelgava lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixth position with 13 games lost. Liepaja will meet higher ranked Valmiera (#3) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Jelgava will play against the league's second-placed Barons kvartals and will have a slim chance for a victory.
