It was a good game for Lithuanian Tauras Jogela (202-93, agency: Players Group) who led his team to a victory with 23 points and 8 rebounds. Lithuanian forward Denis Krestinin (202-94, agency: BeoBasket) contributed with 17 points (went 9 for 9 at the free throw line !!!) for the winners. The former international power forward Rolandas Zakis (206-87) replied with 15 points and 8 rebounds for Ventspils. Ventspils' coach Karlis Muiznieks tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Barons Riga have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourth position with 16-14 record. Ventspils at the other side still keep top place with four games lost. Barons Riga are looking forward to face league's second-placed Valmiera at home in the next round and it may be the game of the week. Ventspils will play against Jekabpils and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
