Arturs
Duselis
BK Ogre (#8) forced the game against Jurmala (#5) into an overtime, but lost by four points 84-88 on Saturday night. The game took place in Ogre. But the guests from Jurmala were better at the end. It was a good game for Arturs Duselis who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Jurmala maintains fifth place with 10-12 record. BK Ogre at the other side keeps the eighth position with 12 games lost. Jurmala will face Liepaja/Triobet (#6) at home in the next round. BK Ogre will play against Latvijas Universitate in Riga and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

The most impressive performance of 21th round was 19 points and 10 assists by Abdul Gaddy of VEF Riga.

Valka/Valga - VEF Riga 75-112

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked VEF Riga (10-2) crushed on the road bottom-ranked Valka/Valga (3-11) 112-75 on Wednesday. The game without a history. VEF Riga led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter.
