Long play-off winning streak finally ends18-05-2015


The local championship continued in Tartu. A poor second quarter cost the game for BC Kalev/Cramo, who showed awful offence and lost the quarter 6:20. The final score was 68 : 61 for Tartu.

Keith Benson had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Scott Machado added 17 points and 13 rebounds but also had 7 turnovers. BC Kalev could not hit from the three-point line at all, their first make was in the last minutes of the third quarter. They also lost the rebounding battle second game in a row. Tanel Kurbas had 21 points for Rock.

Alar Varrak said in the press conference after the game that it was one of the worst games of the season. He added: ” We made a lot of bad decisions, the players and the coaches. In the end I was hoping that players who had brought us back in the game during the regular season would bring us back today but that wasn’t the case today. A few times we were getting the control of the game but the referees made interesting calls and the momentum shifted.”

Gregor Arbet added that it wasn’t in the players mind that the series must end 4:0 like the years before. “Our goal is four wins and I believe after the awful performance we showed today we are still able to win the series,” added the team captain.

  1. Russia seems to be making lots of irennnatiotal business deals lately. I’m optimistic that this will lead to an increasing economic interdependence and therefore greater peace on the Eurasian continent. Those that wish to “contain” Russia are really those that that desire to foster hostility and conflict.
