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.

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.
