Turība Basketball Team will Start a New Season (0)

This week our basketball club teams will start the annual and, all-in-all, the 17th basketball season.

The first team that has been joined by some students from other higher educational institutions and also by secondary school students will contend in the 2nd division tournament of Latvian Basketball League. The general sponsor of the second division this season will be “Ramirent” LTD; therefore the name  Ramirent LBL2 is also natural

As the main aim for this season, the team has set the goal to win the medals. Such a goal is real and could be achieved; however, it could be reached only by fighting hard and making great efforts. It will not be easy to fight against the teams supported by larger municipalities that have already very experienced basketball players, including also the graduates of our university who have mostly mastered their basketball skills at our basketball club “Turība University”.

As usual before each season, there is a general meeting of the club hold. This year was no exception. During the meeting the responsibility and discipline were defined as the most important cornerstones for achieving the goals. The motto of the team remains the same – one for all, all for one!

There were 5 test games played during the preparatory stage before the commencement of season – there were 3 victories won and 2 defeats faced.

In its turn, the opening game of the new season will be played on October9 at 5 p.m. in our gym, and we will play against the basketball players of BC Ķekava.

The second team of the club, mostly consisting of Turība graduates, has been improved also by some graduates of other higher education institutions. The team, under the name Turība +, will take part in one of the best tournaments of amateur league – the Double-Amateur League. During the first game of the season, the team was able to win a powerful victory over BC Mangaļi, but the second game is scheduled for October 8, at 7 p.m. at the gym of Turība University.
