21-year old power forward Egle Siksniute (198-F/C-91) had an amazing evening in the last round for Fortuna and receives a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 11. She had a double-double of 17 points and 14 rebounds, while her team beat Kibirkstis-Tiche (#1, 10-1) 75-67. The game was between two of the league's top four teams. Fortuna is placed at 3rd position in Lithuanian LMKL. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Fortuna will need more victories to improve their 8-4 record. Siksniute has many years of experience at Fortuna, through which he has constantly improved. Siksniute has impressive league stats. She is in league's top in rebounds (9th best: 7.3rpg).
Second best performed player last round was Laura Juskaite (187-PF-97) of Jaunieji Talentai. She is a forward in her first season at Jaunieji Talentai. In the last game Juskaite recorded impressive double-double of 13 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Jaunieji Talentai lost that game 43-62 to the higher-ranked Aistes-LSU (#5, 4-7). Jaunieji Talentai are still at the very bottom. 9 lost games are too many comparing to just one victory Jaunieji Talentai managed to get this year. Juskaite is a newcomer at Jaunieji Talentai and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.
Third place about best performers goes to guard Santa Okockyte (175-PG-92) of Ruta Siauliai (#6). Okockyte scored 25 points and grabbed six rebounds. Despite Okockyte's great performance Ruta Siauliai lost 63-71 to the higher-ranked Sirenos (#2, 8-3). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Ruta Siauliai not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 7 games, recording just four victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Okockyte could try to bring Ruta Siauliai's a little bit higher in the standings. Okockyte has individually a great season in Lithuania. After only 8 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.1ppg (3rd best).

The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3*(REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4*(2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3*(2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3*(3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
