Latvian U-16 basketball players finish the Baltic Cup with victories in…

first_imgLatvian U16 girls basketball team Photo: LBSThe Latvian U-16 women’s basketball team won all three Baltic Cup games this weekend.On Sunday, the Latvians closed the tournament in Kaunas with a victory 84:58 (21:15, 22:19, 24:12, 17:12) beat their peers from Estonia.As in the games with both Lithuanian teams, the Latvians were superior in the fight against baskets (50-41) and in the accuracy of three-point shots (9/19 – 4/24), as well as often intercepted the ball (18-11) and skillfully used the mistakes of opponents (29 -16).On Sunday, Katrīna Ozola had 19 points and nine rebounds, Luize Sila had 16 points and nine balls under the baskets, Andija Sedliņa had 13 points, but Līva Liniņa had 12 points and ten rebounds.As in the conversation with the Latvian Basketball Union (LBS), Aigars Nerips, the head coach of the Latvian U-16 national team, emphasized that all players, including the leaders, still have a lot of work to do to improve and stabilize their skills.“Several basketball players have good prospects, provided they continue to work. The Lithuanians had divided their players into two approximately equal teams. Both victories did not come easily, but every time we found opportunities to neutralize the opponents’ trumps and take advantage of their weaknesses. By joining forces, Lithuanians will be stronger, but we would not be weaker. In addition, for various reasons, several basketball players stayed at home, who could have helped, ”LBS quotes Neripa.At the beginning of the last match, after a collision, unpleasant injuries came to life and two main basketball players – Raina Tomašicka and Tīna Grausa – could not continue the game.“Others had more playing time, and our dominance was not particularly affected. The organizers of the tournament, this time without consulting the coaches, awarded the prize for the best player of our team to Louise Sila, but the most valuable player of the whole tournament was Raina Tomašickas, who was more diverse this time than before. It is nice to end the summer work cycle with three victories. We have used the difficult time usefully, promoting the progress of the players, ”said Nerips.On Friday, the Latvians won the Lithuanian “white” team with 76:64, but on Saturday with 78:58 they defeated the “green” team of the southern neighbors.Meanwhile, the U-16 men’s team finished the tournament with a success of 77:61 (13:18, 15:10, 25:21, 24:12) played against the Estonians.Latvians prevail in three-pointers (10/32 – 3/23), in the fight for rebounds (50-40), but more mistakes (21-16).Dāvis Ozers scored 19 points, Mārtiņš Zuments 13 points, but Christopher Karlson and Ernest Ločmel had ten points each.The head coach of the Latvian U-16 national team Agris Galvanovskis concludes that there is a feeling of unfinished work, because no real opportunities were used to win the third match.The Lithuanian “green” team did not have bright talents, but everyone worked with great fighting spirit, collecting 23 balls at our basket. We did not lack centimeters, but they were not enough. Overall, we played better than in the winter tournaments, but the results should not be overestimated. Lithuanians, combining all the best forces in one team, would be more powerful, this time the Estonians were not helped by a 210 cm long leader who trains in the “Real” system of Madrid, “LBS quotes Galvanovskis.Galvanovskis emphasizes that Latvia does not lack talent against the background of its opponents, but the rival teams were more fierce and sportier.Many people still want to get the result by playing in “white gloves”, but in modern basketball it does not go through. When conclusions are drawn, the result also appears. As today, when we broke the Estonian resistance in the second half, ”says Galvanovskis.Dans Galdiņš received the award for the best player of the Latvian team.On Friday, Latvia overtook the Lithuanian “white” team with 78:75, but on Saturday with 75:81 it lost to the Lithuanian “green” team.Composition of the Latvian U-16 women’s team for participation in the Baltic Cup in Kaunas:Enija Vīksne, Marta Zariņa, Katrīna Ozola (all – “Riga” / TTP), Madara Liepniece, Elizabete Feierberga, Raina Tomašicka (all – “Riga” / “Center”), Līva Kristiāna Gode, Andija Sedliņa, Tīna Grausa, Luīze Sila (all – RBJSS / “Rīdzene”), Līva Liniņa (“Rīga” / ”Jugla”), Valērija Baranovska (“Daugavpils”).Composition of the Latvian U-16 men’s team for participation in the Baltic Cup in Kaunas:Kristofers Karlsons, Dans Galdiņš, Markuss Mamajs (all – “Rīga” / DSN), Kristofers Krivišs (“Rīga” / ”A.Kraukļa VEF BS”), Markuss Lastiņš (“Ogres BS”), Ernests Ločmelis (“Rīga”) / Basketball class ”), Mārtiņš Zuments (IMSS,“ Rīga ”/” Basketball class ”), Dāvis Dāvids Ozers (“ Valmiera ”-“ Ventspils University College ”), Rūdolfs Rudmiezis (“ Cēsis ”-“ Valmiera ”), Armands Gailišs ( “Ezerzeme”), Frederiks Meinarts (BS “Ķeizars”, “VEF school”, “Rīga” / DSN), Pēteris Pinnis (IMSS – “Salaspils”, “Rīga” / “Centrs”).last_img read more
