Sirsnins
Coincidentally all visitors won their games.

The game in Jurmala was quite interesting. Second ranked Jekabpils (17-9) played at the court of 6th ranked Jurmala (11-16). Jekabpils managed to secure a 4-point victory 88-84 on Wednesday. The guests trailed by 10 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 4 points. Jekabpils made 21-of-26 free shots (80.8 percent) during the game. Jekabpils outrebounded Jurmala 45-23 including a 19-6 advantage in offensive rebounds. 24 personal fouls committed by Jurmala helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international point guard Rinalds Sirsnins (186-85) who helped to win the game recording 17 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists. Polish center Michal Hlebowicki (204-76) contributed with 22 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Forward Atis Ozols (199-81) answered with 32 points and 6 rebounds for Jurmala. Jekabpils have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Barons kvartals. Jurmala at the other side dropped to the seventh place with 16 games lost. They share the position with Liepaja. Jekabpils is looking forward to face league's second-placed Barons kvartals in Riga in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Jurmala will play on the road against Jelgava (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between 11th ranked U18 (1-15) and eighth ranked Latvijas Universitate (12-16) in Riga ended with biggest points difference. Guests from Riga outscored U18 92-62. Worth to mention a quality performance of guard Zanis Peiners (204-90, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points, 11 assists and 4 steals. Kristaps Dargais helped adding 8 points and 9 rebounds. At the losing side center Andzejs Pasecniks (211-95) responded with 17 points and 9 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Latvijas Universitate moved-up to sixth place. U18 lost eleventh consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom position with 15 games lost. Latvijas Universitate will play against Liepaja (#8) on the road in the next round.
