BBL Weekly Review: Volume 7

Week seven is in the books and there is only one team yet to achieve a victory remaining in the Baltic Basketball League. Let us round the week’s events out with the seventh volume of the BBL Weekly Review!


SLUMP. Pyrinto started the season off with two victories, yet followed it up with 5 consecutive losses. However, their tough run seems to be over, as they thrashed Barons/LDz on Wednesday evening.

RUNS. Valga Maks ja Moorits were responsible for the biggest run this week, as they used a 15-0 stretch to take over the game against TTU.

COACHING CHANGE. Nevezis were the second ones to endure a coaching change, as former Lietkabelis coach Mindaugas Budzinauskas took reins in Kedainiai.

WINLESS. Despite that, however, Nevezis are still struggling in the BBL. They are now the only team with no wins in the entire league.

TURNAROUND. After starting the season with two wins and two losses, Lietkabelis turned it around recently. The Lithuanians have now won three consecutive games and lead the league in both points scored and overall efficiency.

Lauris Blaus becomes this week’s MVP with an impressive 20-points and 12-rebound performance, adding up to 30 ranking points.

Toomas Raadik and David Haughton were named runners-up this week, as they both had 28 ranking points. Raadik scored 23 points and 9 rebounds, while Haughton contributed 17 points and 12 rebounds.

Marcus Monroe of Nevezis was impressive in his team’s loss with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists, summing to 27 ranking points.

Jaan Puider closed the top five with a great performance against Valga. The TTU guard scored 17 points, added 15 rebounds and 6 assists.
