Mazeikiai dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Gargzdai-Bremena's 28. Mazeikiai forced 21 Gargzdai-Bremena turnovers.

Top ranked Suduva-Mantinga (9-4) recorded its fourth loss in Marijampole. Hosts were defeated by fifth ranked Dzukija (9-3) 86-75. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Suduva-Mantinga.

Giedrius Kurtinaitis contributed with 23 points for the winners. Center Mindaugas Kalvelis (205-80) answered with 20 points and 6 rebounds for Suduva-Mantinga. Suduva-Mantinga's coach Gintautas Zibuda rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Dzukija have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to third place. Suduva-Mantinga at the other side dropped to the fourth position with four games lost. They share it with Statyba. Dzukija will play against Delikatesas (#13) in Joniskis in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Suduva-Mantinga will play against Zanavykas (#9) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Vilnius: S.Marciulionio (#8) and Statyba (#2). S.Marciulionio (8-5) won against visiting Statyba (9-4) 99-89. Tomas Rakauskas stepped up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 assists for the winners. At the losing side Darius Tarvydas responded with 33 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds. S.Marciulionio have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Statyba dropped to the fourth position with four games lost. They share it with Suduva-Mantinga. S.Marciulionio will meet Zalgiris-Sabonio (#6) in the next round. Statyba will play against Radviliskis and hope to secure a win.

Other games of round 13 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Perlas-MRU was defeated by Ezerunas-Karys in Moletai 75-67. Meresta beat Birstono at home 78-70. Zanavykas won against Radviliskis on the opponent's court 81-67.

Meresta - Birstono 78-70

No shocking result in a game in Pakruojis where fifth ranked Meresta (10-4) defeated 16th ranked Birstono (3-11) 78-70 on Friday.

The hosts trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 32-20 charge, which allowed them to win the game. S.Marciulionio looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists.

Radviliskis - Zanavykas 67-81

Very expected game when 16th ranked Radviliskis (3-10) was defeated at home by ninth ranked Zanavykas (8-5) 81-67 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Zanavykas. Radviliskis managed to win third quarter 27-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Zanavykas forced 19 Radviliskis turnovers. Guard Edgaras Stanionis (193-88) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 30 points, 11 assists and 4 steals for the winners and center Vilius Sumskis (213-84, agency: Interperformances) chipped in 13 points and 6 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field).

Triobet - Silute 74-66

Rather predictable result in Jonava where eleventh ranked Triobet (7-6) beat 14th ranked Silute (4-9) 74-66 on Friday. Triobet forced 24 Silute turnovers. Forward Martynas Linkevicius (197-85) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds for the winners and forward Henrikas Vorotnikovas (203-90) chipped in 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Triobet moved-up to tenth place. Loser Silute keeps the fourteenth position with nine games lost. They share it with Nafta Universitetas. Triobet will meet bottom-ranked Gargzdai-Bremena (#18) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Silute will play against Ezerunas-Karys (#12) in Moletai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
