BC Kalev/Cramo showed good spirit in a win against the finnish champion Tampere Pyrinto when they won 83 : 72 at Tallinn Arena. EJ Singler scored 23 and Kristjan Kitsing 21 points both also grabbed 9 rebounds for the winners. Mindaugas Kupšas collected a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Sten Olmre and Erik Keedus both scored 9 points. Tyrone Kent of Tampere was their scoring leader with 28 points and 10 rebounds. Scott Machado, Gregor Arbet, Armands Škele, Rolands Freimanis and Frank Elegar basically got a day off by just playing a few minutes at the end due to foul trouble. On the down side Kalev/Cramo had 25 turnovers against the finns agressive defence.

Coach Varrak was satisfied with the win but wasn’t pleased with the amount of turnovers: ” The finns pressured us a lot. But to turn the ball over 9 times in the last quarter is too much! Getting the win against a strong team despite resting our starters is always good.

Next game will be at Tallinn Arena on sunday when Kalev/Cramo hosts Krasnojarski Jenissei in VTB League. The game starts at 17.
