GAME REPORT

06.09.2006
First Half Surge Propels Latvia

Six players tallied double digit scoring as Latvia earned their second win in Group D by beating Denmark 90-74.

Uvis Helmanis led the way with 20 points, while Kristaps Janicenoks and Kaspars Cipruss each added 15.

Latvia opened a double digit lead by outscoring Denmark 25-14 in the first quarter and increased their advantage to as many as 19 in the second quarter.

Danish forward Nicolai Iversen pulled no punches in his assessment of his side's first half display.

"I'm disappointed. I don't think we fought hard enough early in the game. I think it's embarrasing. I think it's really embarrassing that we started the game so poorly."

"If I could explain what goes wrong in the first half, I would have done something about it before the game," added Denmark head coach Allan Foss. 

"We seemed not to be aware how good the Latvians really are."

Denmark responded offensively in the third quarter by tallying 26 points, one more than their total from the entire first half, but it wouldn’t be enough to overcome their huge deficit.

Latvia have an important game this Saturday when they host undefeated Croatia.

Jasmin Repesa’s men have won all three of their games by 20 points or more.

Latvia would love nothing more than to take down the top team in the Group and earn revenge from an 84-56 setback to the Croatians last week.

Winless Denmark will take on Estonia.
