The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Mazeikiai as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Mazeikiai defeated 6th ranked Zanavykas at home 86-76. The game was mostly controlled by Mazeikiai. Zanavykas managed to win third quarter 22-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 25-of-29 free shots (86.2 percent) during the game. 27 personal fouls committed by Zanavykas helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Forward Osvaldas Macernis (196-82) orchestrated the victory by scoring 27 points and 5 steals. Rokas Giedraitis (198-92) contributed with 17 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Guard Edgaras Stanionis (193-88) answered with 22 points and 6 rebounds for Zanavykas. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Zanavykas lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the sixth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Statyba. Zanavykas will play next round against Delikatesas trying to get back on the winning streak. Mazeikiai will try to continue on its current victory against second ranked Dzukija in Alytus.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Dzukija (17-6) against fifth ranked Triobet (15-8) on Friday night. Host Dzukija was defeated by Triobet in a tough game in Alytus 73-79. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Dzukija. It was a great evening for forward Martynas Linkevicius (197-85) who led his team to a victory scoring 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Arturas Lencevicius helped adding 18 points. Forward Povilas Sakinis (199-80) responded with 20 points. Triobet have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Suduva-Mantinga. Newly promoted Dzukija keeps the second position with six games lost. Triobet will play against higher ranked Olimpas (#3) in Plunge in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Dzukija will play at home against the league's leader Mazeikiai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game was also surprising home defeat of 4th ranked Suduva-Mantinga in a game in Marijampole versus Zalgiris-Sabonio (#8) 80-76. It was an exceptional evening for Marius Grigonis who led the winners and scored 24 points and 8 rebounds. Zilvinas Kuklierius came up with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for Suduva-Mantinga in the defeat. Suduva-Mantinga's coach Gintautas Zibuda tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Zalgiris-Sabonio maintains eighth place with 13-10 record. Suduva-Mantinga at the other side keeps the fourth position with eight games lost. They share it with Triobet. Zalgiris-Sabonio will meet at home Radviliskis (#14) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Suduva-Mantinga will play against Statyba (#7) in Vilnius and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Vilnius. It ended with only three-point home defeat of higher ranked Perlas-MRU (10-13) to sixteenth ranked Silute (7-16) 101-98 on Friday evening. The best player for the winners was Dustin Heiman who scored 28 points and 8 assists. Perlas-MRU's coach Erikas Kuciauskas tried various players' combinations and tested in total twelve players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Silute maintains sixteenth place with 7-16 record. Perlas-MRU at the other side keeps the eleventh position with 13 games lost. Silute's next round opponent will be higher ranked Meresta (#9) in Pakruojis and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Statyba (14-9) and Delikatesas (10-13), which took place in Joniskis. Higher ranked Statyba lost to thirteenth ranked Delikatesas in a road game 71-85 on Friday. Aivaras Kvedaravicius orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Statyba's coach Gintautas Regina let to play eleven players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Delikatesas moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Perlas-MRU. Loser Statyba dropped to the sixth position with nine games lost. Delikatesas will face higher ranked Zanavykas (#6) in Sakiai in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 23: Birstono was beaten by S.Marciulionio on the road 75-70. Ezerunas-Karys lost to Olimpas on its own court 59-68. Bottom-ranked Gargzdai was outscored by Meresta in Pakruojis 47-73. Radviliskis managed to beat Nafta Universitetas at home 87-70.
