There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Top ranked Dzukija (11-5) recorded its fifth loss in Alytus on Saturday night. Hosts were edged by seventeenth ranked Radviliskis (4-12) 87-84. Radviliskis dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to Dzukija's 44. 24 personal fouls committed by Dzukija helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Forward Vaidas Trepocka (200-80, agency: Court Side) fired 24 points for the winners. Power forward Erikas Kaupaitis (202-84, college: USC Upstate) chipped in 10 points and 14 rebounds. Guard Mindaugas Reminas (190-86) produced 24 points and 7 rebounds for lost side. Radviliskis moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Silute and Nafta Universitetas. Newly promoted Dzukija dropped to the second position with five games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Radviliskis is looking forward to face bottom-ranked Gargzdai-Bremena (#18) on the road in the next round. Dzukija will play against Nafta Universitetas (#15) in Klaipeda and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Plunge. Sixth ranked Olimpas (11-5) saved a 3-point victory at home edging one of their biggest challengers Suduva-Mantinga (10-6) 74-71 on Saturday evening. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Ignas Razutis (185-87) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 5 steals (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Audrius Maneikis contributed with 21 points for the winners. Guard Zilvinas Kuklierius (180-85) replied with 18 points and 8 rebounds for Suduva-Mantinga. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Olimpas have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. Suduva-Mantinga at the other side dropped to the sixth position with six games lost. They share it with Meresta and Zalgiris-Sabonio. Olimpas will play against S.Marciulionio (#10) in Vilnius in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Suduva-Mantinga will play on the road against Silute (#17) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Kaunas between Birstono and Zalgiris-Sabonio. Fourteenth ranked Birstono (5-11) got a very close home victory over higher ranked Zalgiris-Sabonio (10-6). Birstono managed to escape with a 2-point win 66-64 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Zalgiris-Sabonio. Worth to mention a great performance of Paulius Kleiza who helped to win the game recording 27 points and 4 assists. At the losing side Arturas Gudaitis responded with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds. Birstono maintains fourteenth position with 5-11 record. Loser Zalgiris-Sabonio keeps the sixth place with six games lost. They share the position with Meresta and Suduva-Mantinga. Birstono will meet at home higher ranked Statyba (#3) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Zalgiris-Sabonio will play against the league's second-placed Zanavykas having rather not much hope for a victory.
A very interesting game took place in Vilnius. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 11th ranked Perlas-MRU (7-9) to tenth ranked Triobet (9-7) 91-88 on Saturday evening. The winners were led by Vytautas Kruzikas who scored that evening 17 points and 9 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Triobet moved-up to ninth place, which they share with S.Marciulionio. Perlas-MRU at the other side keeps the eleventh position with nine games lost. Triobet's next round opponent will be Ezerunas-Karys (#13) in Moletai. Perlas-MRU will play at home against Delikatesas in Joniskis and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Silute. Local Silute (4-12) was outscored by second ranked Mazeikiai (12-4) 94-65 on Saturday night. Osvaldas Macernis fired 25 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Silute's coach Justas Brazas gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Mazeikiai keeps a position of league leader. Silute lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the fifteenth place with 12 games lost. Mazeikiai will face Meresta (#6) in Pakruojis in the next round where they are favorite. Silute will play at home against Suduva-Mantinga (#7) in Marijampole.

Rest of the games of round 16 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:

A very interesting game took place in Vilnius. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 11th ranked Perlas-MRU (7-9) to tenth ranked Triobet (9-7) 91-88 on Saturday evening. It looked good early as Perlas-MRU took an 4-point lead at the end of first quarter.

The guests trailed by 8 points after three quarters before their 24-9 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Delikatesas forced 22 Gargzdai-Bremena turnovers.
