Last Friday, Charles Rhodes arrived in Riga, Latvia to join his new team, Barons LMT, and on Saturday he was thrown into the fire, appearing in his first Baltic Basketball League game.
In just under 10 minutes of action, Rhodes scored four points, connecting on two of his four attempts, snagged two rebounds, and turned the ball over once. It’s evident that Charles must do some adapting to his new environment as he managed to foul out of the game (the limit in Latvia is five), and even received a technical.
Nonetheless, Barons Riga defeated ASK Riga 90-68 and Rhodes left a fair impression on his new coach. Click to view the game box score. Stay turned for more on Charles Rhodes’ Latvian adventure.
