Betsafe/Liepaja finish season with a win

LIEPAJA - In a game that had little meaning to the final standings, Betsafe/Liepaja held on to a 63-61 victory over visiting Tsmoki Minsk.


Liepaja earned their third victory, improving to a 3-7 record and tied the 4th-seeded Port of Parnu in the win column, but that was not enough for a place in the Playoffs due to their head-to-head results.

The loss means Tsmoki finish with the league's worst record, with their only victory coming against the aforementioned Parnu club a couple weeks ago. The Belorussian side is dead-last with a 1-9 record.

Liepaja had a great effort from Markes Jurevicus, who dropped 16 points and dished out 4 assists. The trio of Toms Leimanis, Karlis Leimanis and Roberts Krastins all ended the night with 9 points apiece.

Tsmoki had two players in double-digit scoring, as Yauheni Beliankou led the way with 16. Anton Vashkevich added 12 points to the tally. Viktar Ausepian was strong under the boards, tallying 8 points and 11 rebounds, while Aliaksei Laskevich added another 8 points and 7 boards.
