Decisive matches for medals were held last week in both the Latvian Women's Basketball Championship and the National Basketball League for men.

For the second year in a row, Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) players managed to reach the Latvian Women’s Basketball Championship finals, which is the highest achievement for the RSU women’s basketball team. The women fought as hard as they could, and came in second overall after losing to the team TTT Rīga with a score of 89:63. Enija Paula Vīksne was chosen as the most valuable player of the final game with 14 points, followed by Evelīna Otto who scored 13 points. Vīksne was also the most valuable player on the RSU team in the whole past season with an average of 12.5 points, while the second most efficient player was Luīze Šepte with 10.75 points.

Since 2014, RSU has finished 3rd four times and 2nd twice in the Latvian Women’s Basketball Championship.

In the men's bronze medal match, the team RSU/VEF Rīga lost to Gulbenes Buki by 69:75. In this series, our players lost two games and thus finished fourth in the season. Rihards Ginters was the most valuable player for RSU/VEF Rīga in the bronze medal match with 17 points, while Nils Baumeisters was the second most valuable player with 15 points. The team’s top scorer this season was Dāvis Matīss Žilde with an average of 10.9 points per game, followed by Mārtiņš Krūmiņš with 9.8 points.

Since 2012, the RSU men’s basketball team has finished second in the National Basketball League twice and third once.

We warmly congratulate the teams on their achievements and wish them good luck in finishing the academic year!
