For the Regular season the teams were divided into three groups of six and one group of five.[1] Top four teams of each group advanced to Last 16 where they were divided into four groups. Two best teams of each group advanced to the play-offs. All play-off games were played in home-and-away series.[2]

Ventspils became the first ever Latvian team to win the tournament by beating Lithuanian side Prienai 161–142 on aggregate score in the finals.[3] Kalev/Cramo from Estonia won their first Baltic League medal by downing Latvian side Barons kvartāls 144–137 in the bronze medal playoffs.
