Rakvere Tarvas/Palmse Metall
A good win against Tartu05-12-2016
After dramatically losing the first game of the season against Tartu (Kalev led by 21) the hosts were eager to prove themselves and they did, winning – 86:63.
“The breaking point was when Kriisa came on for Tartu, Dorbek took full advantage of that and we got our initiative and there was no going back,” said coach Varrak.
Demonte Harper had 18 and Sten Sokk who shot 5 for 5 from the field added 13. In his second game for Kalev Cedric Simmons felt good and had a nice game with 11 points and 8 rebounds and coach Varrak on his performance – “Taking in consideration that he hasn’t played in a year and a half, I am very satisfied with him, adding later – He has all the tools to be a high-class player but he just isn’t in shape at the moment, but we hope he’ll get there.”
Playing without Tanel Sokk, meant that other guys needed to step up for Tartu, Janari Jõesaar had 16 points and 7 rebounds, Mandell Thomas and Talts added 12 points.
