Broken backboard stops game in Ogre: Tarvas take technical win

OGRE – The game in Ogre unusually ended after 27 minutes of basketball today, as the backboard broke after Guntis Sipolins' dunk. Ogre/Kumho Tyre couldn't manage to replace the basket in a timely manner, meaning it would be a 20-0 win for Tarvas/Palmse Metall.


The verdict was reached in accordance to Triobet BBL Regulations, section 6.13, "In case the backboard of the basket is broken during the game, the home team must provide its replacement in approximately 30 (thirty) minutes, but no later than in 45 (forty five) minutes: game lost by forfeit."
