BK „Biznesa augstskola Turība” finishes the season (0)

On Saturday 6th April our basketball players ended their season in a tense and exciting game at the Turiba University hall and won a commendable 5th place in the overall table. 

In the 1/8 finals, Turiba basketball players in a sum of two games managed to beat the team from Rezekne, by a total of 24 points. In the 1/4 finals, our players had a match against Kekava, a team which includes a number of experienced players who have played at a much higher level. It was expected that quarter finals of the games would be tense, intense and exciting, where none of the teams would be ready to give up any square centimetre, in the battle for victory and entry into the semi-finals.

The quarter finals last till a team has two wins. In the first match, guests from Kekava turned out to be more successful, the match progressed neck to neck with the winner emerging at the last second of the game. When the final whistle was blown Kekava players sent the ball into the net and won by a margin of just one point. The second game was played in Kekava, where Turiba basketball players who were in control throughout the game ended up victorious. This meant that the winner of the series and the participant of the semi-final would be decided in the final third game that took place at Turiba University. During the whole game, there was tense and sometimes even sharp fight with none wanting to concede because the bets were so high - semi-finals. Unfortunately, Kekava players were more successful and won in the end with a four-point lead. In semi-finals, the team from Jelgava will play against Kekava, and the other semi-finals will be played between the teams of Riga Stradins University and Gulbene.

Overall, the season was good, but it goes without saying that both team supporters and basketball players themselves are a bit disappointed and feel that they could have achieved more.

That is sports and that's why it is so interesting.  You gain experience from each and every season, you learn from the mistakes you made so that the new season is even more successful than the previous one. Turiba's basketball players are motivated and committed to preparing themselves well to go on the court next season and achieve their high goals in the new season.

Thanks for the season, the emotions and the victories won. Let's meet again in the new season!
