The game had a very big importance for third-ranked Suduva-Mantinga as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Suduva-Mantinga defeated second-ranked Statyba in Marijampole 83-67. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Suduva-Mantinga led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Suduva-Mantinga made 7 blocks. Guard Zilvinas Kuklierius (180-85) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Forward Audrius Mineikis (201-77) contributed with 11 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Suduva-Mantinga's coach Gintautas Zibuda used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Center Vitalijus Luksa (206-86) answered with 15 points and 8 rebounds for Statyba. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Mazeikiai and Statyba. Statyba will play next round against Delikatesas trying to get back on the winning streak. Suduva-Mantinga will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Zalgiris-Sabonio in Kaunas.
Leading Mazeikiai (8-3) recorded its third loss at the home court. Hosts were edged by fifth ranked Dzukija (7-3) 88-86. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Mazeikiai. It was a great evening for forward Povilas Sakinis (199-80) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 10 rebounds. Mindaugas Reminas helped adding 23 points. Forward Osvaldas Macernis (196-82) responded with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 14 rebounds. Newly promoted Dzukija maintains fifth place with 7-3 record. Mazeikiai at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. They share it with Suduva-Mantinga and Statyba. Dzukija will play against Triobet (#8) in Jonava in the next round. Mazeikiai will play against Zanavykas (#7) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Jonava between Triobet and Olimpas. Ninth ranked Triobet (6-5) got a very close home victory over 7th ranked Olimpas (6-5). Triobet managed to escape with a 3-point win 80-77 in the game for the eighth place. It was an exceptional evening for Tomas Milinskas who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Audrius Maneikis came up with 24 points for Olimpas in the defeat. Olimpas' coach Alidas Zukauskas rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Triobet moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Olimpas. Triobet will meet at home higher ranked Dzukija (#5) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Olimpas will play against Ezerunas-Karys in Moletai and hope to secure a win.
The game between fourth ranked Meresta (8-4) and 16th ranked Silute (3-8) in Pakruojis ended with biggest points difference. Meresta outscored guests from Silute 94-62. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Silute. The best player for the winners was Tomas Gaidamavicius who scored 13 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Meresta maintains fourth place with 8-4 record. Silute at the other side dropped to the fourteenth position with eight games lost. Meresta's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Gargzdai-Bremena (#18) on the road which should be another easy win for them. Silute will play against Perlas-MRU (#11) in Vilnius.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 11: Birstono was smashed by Perlas-MRU on the road 90-68. S.Marciulionio destroyed Nafta Universitetas on its own court 88-64. Zalgiris-Sabonio managed to outperform Radviliskis in Kaunas 75-65. Delikatesas was rolled over Zanavykas at home 64-87. Bottom-ranked Gargzdai was defeated by Ezerunas-Karys on the opponent's court 56-47.
The most impressive performance of 11th round was 28 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals by Mantas Virbalas of Perlas-MRU.


Perlas-MRU - Birstono 90-68

No shocking result in a game when twelfth ranked Perlas-MRU (6-5) crushed 17th ranked Birstono (3-9) in Vilnius 90-68. The game was mostly controlled by Perlas-MRU. Birstono was better in third quarter 28-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Birstono 48-25 including a 32-14 advantage in defensive rebounds. The best player for the winners was power forward Mantas Virbalas (203-88) who had a double-double by scoring 28 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Forward Antanas Udras (202-92) chipped in a double-double by scoring 23 points and 14 rebounds. Four Perlas-MRU players scored in double figures. Paulius Kleiza (195-88) produced 19 points and forward Julius Kalnietis (197-89) added 17 points and 5 rebounds respectively for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Perlas-MRU have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Birstono at the other side keeps the seventeenth position with nine games lost. Perlas-MRU's next round opponent will be Silute (#16) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Birstono will play against S.Marciulionio in Vilnius.

S.Marciulionio - Nafta Universitetas 88-64

Rather expected game when 14th ranked Nafta Universitetas (3-8) was smashed by eleventh ranked S.Marciulionio (6-5) in Vilnius 88-64. The game was mostly controlled by S.Marciulionio. Nafta Universitetas was better in fourth quarter 22-10. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. S.Marciulionio made 20-of-24 charity shots (83.3 percent) during the game. They also forced 20 Nafta Universitetas turnovers. S.Marciulionio brought some defensive toughness making 7 blocks. The best player for the winners was guard Tomas Rakauskas (183-81) who scored 24 points. Denis Krestinin (202-94, agency: Beo Basket) chipped in 17 points, 8 rebounds and 6 blocks (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). S.Marciulionio's coach Gintaras Kruckauskas felt very confident that he used 10 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Guard Haroldas Venskus (180-91) produced 12 points and 5 assists and forward Viktoras Chodosovskis (200-89) added 12 points and 7 rebounds respectively for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. S.Marciulionio moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Nafta Universitetas at the other side keeps the fourteenth position with eight games lost. S.Marciulionio's next round opponent will be Birstono (#17) and are hoping to win another game. Nafta Universitetas will play against Radviliskis and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Radviliskis - Zalgiris-Sabonio 65-75

Very predictable result when sixth ranked Zalgiris-Sabonio (7-4) won against on the road 15th ranked Radviliskis (3-8) 75-65. Radviliskis was ahead by 6 points after three quarters before a 28-12 charge of Zalgiris-Sabonio, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was swingman Tomas Dimsa (195-94) who scored 19 points and 6 assists. Center Arturas Gudaitis (208-93) chipped in 17 points and 6 rebounds. Forward Janas Jurgo (200-83) produced a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds and guard Rytis Rauktys (187-84) added 17 points respectively for the hosts. Zalgiris-Sabonio maintains sixth place with 7-4 record, which they share with Zanavykas. Radviliskis at the other side dropped to the fourteenth position with eight games lost. Zalgiris-Sabonio's next round opponent will be league's leader Suduva-Mantinga in Marijampole and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Radviliskis will play on the road against Nafta Universitetas (#14) in Klaipeda and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Delikatesas - Zanavykas 64-87

Not a big story in a game when 10th ranked Delikatesas (5-6) was outscored by eighth ranked Zanavykas (7-4) in Joniskis 87-64. The game was mostly controlled by Zanavykas.
