Basketball players of Turiba University become the champions of Student basketball league for the 7th time (22)
Basketball team of Turiba University got the 7th champion title of Student basketball league after a hard win (86:77) against Riga Stradins University.
During the game even losing with 16 points our players found the strength and energy to get back on track and prove to everyone that Turiba’s team is the most powerful in this tournament. The opposing team got closer in the last quarter by losing only with 2 points, but our guys did not give them the lead.
A great thanks and appreciation go to current coaches- Guntars Jonans and Liga Klavina, as well as to Raimonds Feldmanis and Martins Teters who worked with the team till the end of the last year.
As the MVP of the final game was found our captain Rihards Adins. He also got the prize as the 3rd round MVP of the tournament. The most scoring player in our team was Arnis Ate with 18 points. Also more than 10 points scored Rihards Adins, Elvis Endzels and Juris Kalnins.
Hopefully this win will bring an additional motivation to fight for awards in Latvian basketball league’s 2nd division, where competition will continue on Wednesday, 23rd March.
