LSU-Baltai - Lietkabelis 90-64

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 9th ranked Lietkabelis (5-10) was smashed by tenth ranked LSU-Baltai (4-10) in Kaunas 90-64 on Wednesday. The game without a history. LSU-Baltai led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists comparing to just 11 passes made by Lietkabelis' players.

Important game to mention about took place in Siauliai. Second ranked Neptunas (11-3) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging 5th ranked Siauliai (7-6) 82-81 on Wednesday evening. It looked good early as Siauliai took an 1-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Neptunas had a 22-20 second period charge getting the lead and Siauliai was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 81-82. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international forward Valdas Vasylius (203-83, college: ODU) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 5 rebounds and center Vytautas Sarakauskas (204-82) who added 9 points and 8 rebounds during the contest.
