    Default ASK Riga

    So you guys have lots of future plans with this team and overall it doesn't seem to be so bad (considering it reached Latvian league semifinal), but can someone explain me why ASK Riga didn't play in BBL this year?

    Well, Im not Latvian, but the answer is that they didnt finish in Top5 of Latvian League last year. And only 5 teams from Latvia were allowed to play in BBL this year.

    Riga has huge plans and big ambitions and I'm sure they'll have success.
    Why ASK didn't played in BBL already this season?
    There was few factors why they didn't played.
    One was that our Basketball Federations (LBS) president Mr. Kehris didn't wanted them there, because he wanted to re-launch old giant by himself, but it didn't come true, so he didn't gave them wild card.
    But I don't think that LBS didn't wanted ASK Riga in BBL, they were just didn't ready for it. Also results in 04/05 weren't best.
    For this season their goal is to be in LBL TOP 3 and they've very good chances to fill goal.
    Now they've went off big pressure, because they beat Valmiera in 1/4 finals and now they can use advantage in 1/2 finals series vs. Barons. If they'd lost to Valmiera, that would almost end all ambitions and projects, cuz sponsors wants results. But they beat Valmiera and all gates for success are open.
    Talking about sponsors: this season budget already is 1 million dollars, which is big and will only increase when they'll play in BBL + Eurocups.


    Any more questions about ASK, Latvian bball?

    Were did u hear that?
    Write the source please!
    Anyway, I think Kambala will play in ASK, because next is his last year of contract with Fenerbache and then I think his value will be lower then it was before 2 years, when he played at Real Madrid. And also ASK's budget will increase so he'll play there.

    Kambala contract ran out?? wow, it can be great purchase for LRytas

    and I didn't want to create new topic and didn't find topic about LBL, so I will ask there.

    http://eurobasket.lt/?news.id.15323

    How u can understand this article is about G.Vėtra. Can u tell me more about him? Is he good coach? Is it positive step for Barons?

    Is "Arena Riga" the same arena where SEB BBL StarsGame was?

    What about Barons president and Bagatskis? will they go to trial?

    In which arena next year ASK Riga will play? how much seats are there?

    Which Latvian teams in which Eurocups will play next year?
