Liepaja/Triobet unfazed by Tarvas

RAKVERE – Liepaja/Triobet didn't have too many problems in Rakvere, as they raced off early to their seventh win in ten games with a solid 77-59 victory against Tarvas.


It wasn’t much of a contest from the early stages of the game and although the two clubs stood at nine apiece midway through the first quarter, Liepaja/Triobet then hurried off to a quick double-digit lead.

The sides were already separated by 13 points at halftime and it just got worse later on, as the Latvians soon pushed their lead to game-high 25 points. While Tarvas did trim the deficit down, it was all said and done, the final score had blow-out written all over it.
