Latvian Students’ basketball team wins the 8th place in XXX World Summer Universidade (0)

Latvian Students’ basketball team with two students from the Turiba University- Elvijs Mičulis and Klāvs Čavars after getting among eight best teams has concluded its participation in XXX World Summer Universidade that took place in Italy.

“Unfortunately, in the quarter-final we suffered a loss against the strong Israel team that prevented reaching semi-finals. Then was a game against German national team which determined whether we’re going to play for the fifth or seventh place in the tournament. The team of Germany turned out to be stronger and we played for the seventh place once again with group opposite – Argentine. In tough and tense game Argentinians won the game and we finished the tournament in the eighth place. Of course, the aims of each team player were definitely higher, but getting among the eight best teams is also not a bad achievement. In general, I assess positively the tournament! Teams against which we had games, were strong and well set. Universidade is definitely a high level basketball tournament. Thanks everyone for support!” says Elvijs Mičulis.

The Turiba University greets boys and the whole Latvian students’ team with the 8th place!
