With a series of outstanding performances in Tallinn earlier this summer at the U20 European Championship Men, the product of Valmiera and later VEF basketball school, did enough to play himself into a position on the national team. Not named on Coach Bagatskis's initial roster, Berzins made the national team coach reconsider after making the All Tournament Team in Estonia, ending with 15.4 points, and 7.4 rebounds-a-night. Spending a season warming the bench at VEF Riga, Berzins was loaned back out to Valmiera this past off-season where he had previously played in 2009-2011. His numbers were impressive as he also averaged 15.4 points, and seven rebounds an outing. No relation to Kaspars Berzins, or Arturs Berzins.
