LWBL 24/2008 - SK Cēsis 91, Liepājas Metalurgs 50

In front of a crowd of only 500 spectators on their home court, SK Cēsis (22-2) continues to roll up the opposition in the Latvia Women's Basketball League. The designated victim today was Liepājas Metalurgs (12-14) who were blown out on SK Cēsis's home court by a score of 91-50.

The box score is here.

There really isn't much to say about this game. SK Cēsis won every quarter and led 42-26 at halftime. SK Cēsis furthermore won the last quarter by sixteen points as I suspect that Liepājas Metalurgs mailed it in after the third quarter.

Liepājas Metalurgs only hit 31 percent of their field goal attempts, including 3-from-18 from behind the 3-point line in what must have been desperation shots. SK Cēsis, on the other hand, hit 53 percent of their shots. SK Cēsis out-rebounded their opponent's 44-32 and only turned the ball over 11 times. SK Cēsis would send Liepājas Metalurgs to the free throw line 23 times, but Liepājas Metalurgs would only hit 53 percent of their free throws. SK Cēsis would only hit 65 percent of their attempts, but with their other advantages this game would not be decided on the free throw line.

Amazingly, no one had a double-double in this game.

SK Cēsis

Sandra Dijon: 35 points and nine rebounds. It isn't the most points ever scored by SK Cēsis, but she shot 15-for-21 during the game.
Tamera Young: 12 points and 8 rebounds on 5-for-12 shooting.
Kristen Mann: 12 points, 4 assists and 8 rebounds on 4-for-9 shooting.

Liepājas Metalurgs

Sabīne Niedola: 20 points and 8 rebounds, but 5 turnovers.
Viktorija Nazarova: 11 points and 6 rebounds.

Hoping to have some pictures from this game. SK Cēsis is pretty good at providing pictures from Latvian league games.
