LIEPAJA – Liepaja/Triobet dominated from start to finish, thrashing the visiting Tarvas 94-69 (28-12, 22-19, 16-20, 28-18) at the Liepaja Olympic Center in a Group C game on Wednesday evening.


The hosts took command right from the get-go and jumped out to a 20-8 lead seven minutes into the game. After another couple of baskets, Liepaja’s lead increased to 18 points.

The game got out of hand early for Tarvas and although the Estonians tried to rally back, their attempts failed, as Liepaja’s lead only grew as the game went on. Having led from start to finish, Liepaja snatched an easy win.

Edgaras Zelionis led the winners with 18 points, Kristaps Miglinieks and Lauris Blaus chipped in with 12 points for Liepaja/Triobet.

Brandis Raley Ross and Juris Umbrasko carried the load for Tarvas, scoring 22 and 19 points respectively, but it wasn’t enough for the Estonian team.
