Hard fought win in overtime14-11-2014


Fifth consecutive win for BC Kalev/Cramo in BBL came against Pieno Zaigzdes who lost on overtime 96 : 84 (regular time 81 : 81).  The game was so tight mainly due to a very poor second quarter from Kalev/Cramo who truggled against the opponents zone defence and were outscored 6 : 24 .

Rolands Freimanis had a big double-double with 21 points and 15 rebounds. Armands Škele added 16, Scott Machado 15, Erik Keedus and Mindaugas Kupšas 14 points. Alexander Oriakhi scored 14 points for Pieno.

Coach Varrak after the game: ” Whatever league you are playing in if you let your opponent get a good rythm in the game you’re going to struggle to win. Thats why our pre-game plan of letting everybody play 15-20 minutes went down the drain. We needed the win. I have to say good job to the guys who managed to turn the deficit to a win.”
