Peiners
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 susprises and upsets.

LBL round 34 caused change at the leadership position. Eleventh defeat of league's leader Jekabpils (18-11) against seventh ranked Latvijas Universitate (14-17) 94-73 was the most important game of the last round. 25 personal fouls committed by Jekabpils helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Zanis Peiners (204-90, agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording 24 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Forward Klavs Strazdins (192-93) contributed with 19 points and 8 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. American center Todd O'Brien (213-89, college: UAB) replied with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds (made all of his ten free throws !!!) for Jekabpils. 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 fourth place. Newly promoted Jekabpils dropped to the second position with 11 games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Barons kvartals. Jekabpils will play next round against Turiba trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Latvijas Universitate will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
LBL top team - Jekabpils (18-11) added another victory to their record. This time they beat seventh ranked Latvijas Universitate (14-17) 72-67. American point guard P.J. Hill jr. (182-87, college: Ohio St.) scored 18 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Todd O'Brien chipped in 10 points and 14 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side guard Zanis Peiners (204-90, agency: Interperformances) responded with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Despite that victory Jekabpils went down to second position due to points difference. Latvijas Universitate at the other side dropped to the fourth place with 17 games lost. Jekabpils will play against Turiba (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Latvijas Universitate will have a break next round.
A very close game took place in Jurmala between Turiba and Jurmala. Tenth ranked Turiba (10-19) got a very close victory on the road over 8th ranked Jurmala (11-18). Turiba managed to escape with a 2-point win 87-85 on Wednesday evening. Karlis Apsitis notched 16 points and 9 rebounds to lead the effort. Turiba's coach Arnis Vecvagars used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Even 20 points and 5 rebounds by Atis Ozols did not help to save the game for Jurmala. Turiba maintains tenth position with 10-19 record. Jurmala lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eighth place with 18 games lost. They share the position with Liepaja. Turiba will meet league's second-placed Jekabpils on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Jurmala will play against Valmiera (#3) and hope to secure a win.
The game between third ranked Valmiera (17-12) and 6th ranked Jelgava (13-15) in Valmiera ended with biggest points difference. Valmiera outscored guests from Jelgava 99-71. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Jelgava. Janis Berzins fired 16 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Valmiera's coach Varis Krumins felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Valmiera maintains third position with 17-12 record behind leader Barons kvartals. Jelgava at the other side dropped to the seventh place with 15 games lost. Valmiera's next round opponent will be Jurmala (#8) on the road where they are favorite. Jelgava will play against Ventspils and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 34 Jelgava beat Liepaja on the road 112-94.
The most impressive performance of 34th round was 21 points and 8 rebounds by Lauris Mizis of Jelgava.

Newly promoted Jekabpils dropped to the second position with 11 games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Barons kvartals.

Liepaja - Jelgava 94-112

No shocking result in a game when sixth ranked Jelgava (13-15) beat on the road 9th ranked Liepaja (11-18) 112-94. It looked good early as Liepaja took an 2-point lead at the end of first quarter.
