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. He cannot count Sunday's game as one of the best ones. Jonusas scored only 2 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 32 minutes. His team lost 62-74. He has averaged so far 9.4ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.2apg and 1.4spg in the 20 games.
