   #1. Benas Veikalas (192-G-83, college: Metro St., currently plays in Germany) led Telekom Baskets to a victory over the league outsider LTi 46ers (4-20) crushing them 94-56 in the German BBL last Sunday.

This season Stauskas averages only 8.1ppg. He has a dual citizenship: Canadian and Lithuanian. Despite Stauskas' Lithuanian passport, he previously played for the Canadian U19 national team and is probably not eligible to play for the Lithuanian team.

He recorded a double-double by scoring 17 points and getting 12 rebounds (made all of his five free throws). There are only two games left until the end of the NCAA Regular Season.

He was the top player that evening. Juozapaitis scored 38 points (!!!) and grabbed 6 rebounds. Hoganas Basket (9-10) is placed seventh in South group. There are only three games left until the end of the Regular Season. Juozapaitis is one of the most experienced players in a team as it's his sixth year in Hoganas' roster. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Juozapaitis averages: 16.8ppg, 3.7rpg, 2.8apg and 1.6spg.

   #6. Zygimantas Jonusas (200-F-82, currently plays in Italy) was not able to help Juvecaserta in their game against Cimberio Varese in the Italian SerieA.
