The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Dzukija (11-4) in Vilnius on Friday night. Visitors were defeated by ninth ranked S.Marciulionio (9-6) 77-71. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Dzukija. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 4-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 77-71. S.Marciulionio dominated down low during the game scoring 46 of its points in the paint compared to Dzukija's 24. 26 personal fouls committed by Dzukija helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a great evening for guard Tomas Rakauskas (183-81) who led his team to a victory scoring 21 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Power forward Giedrius Staniulis (205-91) helped adding 20 points and 9 rebounds. The best for the losing side was American guard Bryan Harrison (188-84, college: Georgia Coll., agency: Global Sports Plaza) with a double-double by scoring 14 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists. S.Marciulionio maintains ninth place with 9-6 record. Newly promoted Dzukija still keeps top position with four games lost. They share it with Mazeikiai. S.Marciulionio are looking forward to face higher ranked Zanavykas (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Dzukija will play against Radviliskis and is hoping to win this game.
An interesting game took place in Jonava where 4th placed Meresta (10-6) was upset on the court of eleventh ranked Triobet (8-7) 92-83. It was an exceptional evening for forward Martynas Linkevicius (197-85) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Tadas Sebeziovas accounted for 20 points and 5 rebounds. Triobet's coach Kestutis Narusevicius used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Center Agnius Gurklys (205-88) came up with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 13 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for Meresta in the defeat. Triobet moved-up to tenth place. Meresta at the other side dropped to the eighth position with six games lost. Triobet will play against Perlas-MRU (#11) in Vilnius in the next round. Meresta will have a break next round.
14th ranked Nafta Universitetas (4-11) was outscored at home by seventh ranked Zanavykas (10-5) with the biggest margin this round 95-65 on Friday night. The best player for the winners was Vilius Sumskis who scored 23 points and 5 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field). Zanavykas' coach Giedrius Zibenas felt very confident that he used 10 players and allowed the starting five to rest. At the other side the best for losing team was Haroldas Venskus who recorded 20 points and 4 assists. Zanavykas have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with 4 other teams. Nafta Universitetas lost third consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Silute and Birstono. Zanavykas will meet at home S.Marciulionio (#9) in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Nafta Universitetas will play against Statyba (#7) in Vilnius and hope to secure a win.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 15: Olimpas won against Radviliskis on the opponent's court 77-69. Suduva-Mantinga outscored Gargzdai in a home game 91-71. Silute was rolled over Delikatesas on the road 93-66. Mazeikiai defeated Perlas-MRU on its own court 72-59. Statyba was beaten by Zalgiris-Sabonio in Kaunas 87-81.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 26 points and 6 rebounds by Darius Tarvydas of Statyba.


S.Marciulionio - Dzukija 77-71

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Dzukija (11-4) in Vilnius on Friday night. Visitors were defeated by ninth ranked S.Marciulionio (9-6) 77-71. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Dzukija.

Radviliskis - Olimpas 69-77

Very expected game when 17th ranked Radviliskis (3-12) was defeated at home by sixth ranked Olimpas (10-5) 77-69 on Friday. Radviliskis trailed by 15 points at halftime and as many as 21 after three quarters before a 27-14 last quarter charge cut the deficit to 69-77 at the end of the game. Olimpas dominated on the defensive end, holding Radviliskis to just 6 points in third quarter. The best player for the winners was forward Julius Kazakauskas (197-90) who had a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds.

At the other side the best for losing team was forward Antanas Montrimavicius (199-87) who recorded 17 points and point guard Laimonas Kutra (185-88) added 12 points and 4 assists respectively. Four Radviliskis players scored in double figures. Olimpas have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with 4 other teams. Loser Radviliskis keeps the seventeenth position with 12 games lost. Olimpas will meet at home Suduva-Mantinga (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Radviliskis will play against the league's leader Dzukija (#1) in Alytus and hope to secure a win.

Suduva-Mantinga - Gargzdai 91-71

Very predictable result in Marijampole where eighth ranked Suduva-Mantinga (10-5) smashed bottom-ranked Gargzdai-Bremena (2-13) 91-71 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Suduva-Mantinga. Gargzdai-Bremena managed to win third quarter 23-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Gargzdai-Bremena to just 7 points in second quarter. Suduva-Mantinga forced 21 Gargzdai-Bremena turnovers and had a 24-13 advantage in offensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Suduva-Mantinga especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.6 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. The best player for the winners was swingman Andrius Cizikas (197-88) who scored 19 points and 4 steals. Guard Zilvinas Kuklierius (180-85) chipped in 17 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Four Suduva-Mantinga players scored in double figures. At the other side the best for losing team was forward Laurynas Lucinskas (201-93) who recorded 13 points and 7 rebounds and point guard Dominikas Matutis (180-91) added 10 points, 5 assists and 4 steals respectively. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Suduva-Mantinga moved-up to third place, which they share with 4 other teams. Loser Gargzdai-Bremena stay at the bottom position with 13 games lost. Suduva-Mantinga will meet Olimpas (#6) in the next round. Gargzdai-Bremena will play against Delikatesas (#13) in Joniskis and hope to secure a win.

Delikatesas - Silute 93-66

Not a big story in a game in Joniskis where 15th ranked Silute (4-11) was rolled over by thirteenth ranked Delikatesas (6-9) 93-66 on Friday. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 9-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 93-66. Delikatesas made 16-of-21 free shots (76.2 percent) during the game. They also forced 20 Silute turnovers. The best player for the winners was swingman Zilvinas Petraitis (194-88) who scored 21 points. Guard Paulius Klemas (186-91) chipped in 15 points and 4 assists. Five Delikatesas players scored in double figures. At the other side the best for losing team was center Nerijus Anglickis (211-90) who recorded 17 points and 9 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) and guard Evaldas Saulys (193-93) added 12 points respectively. Silute's coach Justas Brazas gave up on the game allowing to play eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Delikatesas maintains thirteenth place with 6-9 record. Silute lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fourteenth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Nafta Universitetas and Birstono. Delikatesas will meet bottom-ranked Gargzdai-Bremena (#18) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Silute will play against the league's second-placed Mazeikiai (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
