The most exciting game of round 23 in the LBL took place in Jekabpils. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 3rd placed Jekabpils (12-11) to eighth ranked BK Ogre (9-13) 72-69 on Saturday evening. Jekabpils were trailing by 6 points at halftime but managed to get 3-point lead after three quarters before a 23-17 charge of BK Ogre, which allowed them to win the game. Strangely Jekabpils outrebounded BK Ogre 44-31 including 31 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. 28 personal fouls committed by Jekabpils helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was point guard Marcis Vitols (183-92) who scored 22 points. The former international forward Janis Poznaks (203-83) chipped in 19 points and 7 rebounds. The former international point guard Rinalds Sirsnins (186-85) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 assists for the hosts. Jekabpils' coach Rudolfs Rozitis rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. BK Ogre maintains eighth place with 9-13 record. Jekabpils at the other side keep the third position with 11 games lost. BK Ogre are looking forward to face higher ranked Jurmala (#7) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Jekabpils will play against the league's second-placed Valmiera (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Leader Ventspils delivered the twentieth victory. This time they crushed 7th ranked Jurmala (10-15) 99-74. Guard Artis Ate (192-89) orchestrated the victory by scoring 14 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Maris Gulbis contributed with 8 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Ventspils' coach Karlis Muiznieks felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The former international point guard Edgars Jeromanovs (186-86) answered with 14 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for Jurmala. Ventspils (20-2) have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They maintain first place. Jurmala lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with 15 games lost. Ventspils will play against VEF Riga (#4) on the road in the next round. Jurmala will play against BK Ogre and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 23 Liepaja/Triobet was defeated by Valmiera in a road game 103-99.
