Edgaras
Zelionis
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets.

An interesting game for Ventspils (24-2) which hosted in Ventspils second-best Valmiera (18-10). First ranked Ventspils managed to get a 5-point victory 89-84. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Valmiera. The hosts trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 26-18 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Ventspils made 25-of-31 free shots (80.6 percent) during the game. They also forced 19 Valmiera turnovers. 28 personal fouls committed by Valmiera helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for Lithuanian forward Edgaras Zelionis (207-89) who led his team to a victory with 14 points and 6 rebounds. The former international forward Kristaps Janicenoks (196-83) contributed with 15 points for the winners. American-Israeli center Dor Fischer (211-81, college: W.Virginia) answered with 17 points and 8 rebounds for Valmiera. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Ventspils have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They maintain first place with 24-2 record. Defending champion Valmiera keeps the second position with ten games lost. Ventspils are looking forward to face Latvijas Universitate (#9) in Riga in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Valmiera will play at home against Jurmala (#7) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
The game in Ogre was also worth to mention about. Sixth ranked Liepaja/Triobet (13-15) played at the court of 8th ranked BK Ogre (11-17). Liepaja/Triobet defeated BK Ogre 87-77. It was a great evening for guard Arturs Ausejs (192-90) who led his team to a victory scoring 17 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Artjoms Butjankovs helped adding 21 points and 8 rebounds. The best for the losing side was the former international forward Janis Poznaks (203-83) with 21 points and 7 rebounds. Liepaja/Triobet moved-up to fourth place. BK Ogre at the other side keeps the eighth position with 17 games lost. Liepaja/Triobet will play against bottom-ranked Valka/Valga (#10) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. BK Ogre will play against the league's leader Ventspils and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between third ranked Jekabpils (16-12) and 5th ranked Barons Riga (12-13) in Jekabpils on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. Jekabpils beat guests from Riga 79-63. It was a quality performance for Jurijs Aleksejevs who led the winners and scored 17 points and 7 rebounds. Tyler Larson came up with 15 points for Barons Riga in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The victory was the third consecutive win for Jekabpils. They maintain third place with 16-12 record having six points less than leader Ventspils. Loser Barons Riga dropped to the sixth position with 13 games lost. Jekabpils will meet Jurmala (#7) on the road in the next round. Barons Riga will play against Jurmala and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

BK Ogre - Liepaja/Triobet 77-87

The game in Ogre was also worth to mention about. Sixth ranked Liepaja/Triobet (13-15) played at the court of 8th ranked BK Ogre (11-17). Liepaja/Triobet defeated BK Ogre 87-77. BK Ogre was ahead by 4 points at the halftime before a 51-37 second half run of Liepaja/Triobet. It was a great evening for guard Arturs Ausejs (192-90) who led his team to a victory scoring 17 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Power forward Artjoms Butjankovs (205-91) helped adding 21 points and 8 rebounds. The best for the losing side was the former international forward Janis Poznaks (203-83) with 21 points and 7 rebounds and center Guntis Sipolins (206-93) scored 19 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Liepaja/Triobet moved-up to fourth place. BK Ogre at the other side keeps the eighth position with 17 games lost. Liepaja/Triobet will play against bottom-ranked Valka/Valga (#10) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.
