Damier Pitts
Top ranked Ventspils (16-2) recorded its second loss on the court of second ranked Valmiera on Saturday night. Visitors were edged by Valmiera 97-95. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 6 points at the halftime before their 32-20 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Valmiera made 19-of-23 free shots (82.6 percent) during the game. 26 personal fouls committed by Ventspils helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American point guard Damier Pitts (177-89, college: Marshall) who scored 24 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!). point guard Janis Kaufmanis (186-89) chipped in 20 points and 4 assists. Lithuanian forward Edgaras Zelionis (207-89) produced a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Valmiera (13-7) have an impressive eight-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains second position having just one point less than leader Ventspils. Ventspils at the other side still keep top place with two games lost. Valmiera will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Ventspils will play at home against Jekabpils and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Ventspils delivered the sixteenth victory. This time they crushed 10th ranked Valka/Valga (3-9) 119-70. The former international point guard Ingus Jakovics (186-93, college: Liepaja-2) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Willie Deane contributed with 18 points and 6 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Ivars Rihards Zvigurs (198-95) replied with 22 points and 9 rebounds for Valka/Valga. Ventspils maintains first position with 16-2 record. Valka/Valga lost fifth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with nine games lost. Ventspils will play against Jekabpils (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Valka/Valga will play against VEF Riga (#4) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Rest of the games of round 20 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:

Jekabpils - Jurmala 83-70

Not a big story in a game when 5th ranked Jurmala (9-12) was defeated on the road by third ranked Jekabpils (11-8) 83-70. It was a very close game until the last quarter, when Jekabpils's pressure prevailed and they won that period 26-16 extending their advantage to 13 points. They made 18-of-21 charity shots (85.7 percent) during the game. Guard Janis Antrops (193-91) orchestrated the victory by scoring 19 points and 4 assists. The former international point guard Rinalds Sirsnins (186-85) contributed with 19 points and 4 assists for the winners. The former international point guard Edgars Jeromanovs (186-86) replied with 17 points and 6 assists and forward Arturs Duselis (201-89) added 13 points and 7 rebounds in the effort for Jurmala. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Jekabpils maintains third position with 11-8 record having four points less than leader Ventspils. Jurmala at the other side keeps the fifth place with 12 games lost. Jekabpils will play against league's leader Ventspils on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Jurmala will play against BK Ogre (#8) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
