Chris Lofton
The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Zalgiris (22-3) in Kaunas on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by sixth ranked Neptunas (14-11) 78-69. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Zalgiris. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Zalgiris won third quarter 20-11. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Chris Lofton (188-86, college: Tennessee) who helped to win the game recording 20 points. His fellow American import Daniel Ewing (191-83, college: Duke, agency: Stealth Sport) contributed with 15 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. The former international Paulius Jankunas (205-84) answered with 7 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for Zalgiris. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Neptunas moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Vytautas and Juventus. Defending champion Zalgiris still keeps top position with three games lost. Neptunas is looking forward to face Nevezis (#9) in Kedainiai in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Zalgiris will play on the road against Vytautas (#5) in Prienai and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Utena. Third ranked Lietuvos rytas (17-8) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 4th placed Juventus (14-11) 87-85 in the fight for the third place. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Juventus. American-Georgian point guard Corey Fisher (186-88, college: Villanova) stepped up and scored 19 points for the winners and Jimmy Baron chipped in 14 points and 5 assists. Lietuvos rytas' coach Rimas Kurtinaitis allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. At the losing side American point guard Jamar Diggs (188-88, college: Wofford, agency: Octagon Europe) responded with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists. Lietuvos rytas maintains third place with 17-8 record having five points less than leader Zalgiris. Juventus at the other side keeps the fourth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Neptunas and Vytautas. Lietuvos rytas will play against Dzukija (#8) in Alytus in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Juventus will play at home against the league's second-placed Lietkabelis (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Lietkabelis (18-7) against eighth ranked Dzukija (7-18) on Sunday night. Visiting Lietkabelis was defeated by Dzukija in a tough game in Alytus 80-89. Julius Kazakauskas nailed 13 points and 9 rebounds (made all of his ten free throws !!!) for the winning side. Mindaugas Lukauskis came up with 11 points for Lietkabelis in the defeat. Lietkabelis' coach Kazys Maksvytis rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Dzukija maintains eighth place with 7-18 record. Loser Lietkabelis keeps the second position with seven games lost. Dzukija will meet higher ranked Lietuvos rytas (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Lietkabelis will play against Juventus in Utena and hope to secure a win.
The game between ninth ranked Nevezis (6-19) and 10th ranked Siauliai (3-22) in Kedainiai ended with biggest points difference. Nevezis outscored guests from Siauliai 86-56. Toni Prostran fired 24 points and 5 assists for the winners. Nevezis maintains ninth place with 6-19 record. Siauliai lost fourth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 22 lost games. Nevezis' next round opponent will be higher ranked Neptunas (#4) in Klaipeda and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Siauliai will play on the road against P.Zvaigzdes (#7) in Pasvalys and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 25 P.Zvaigzdes was beaten by Vytautas on the road 86-74.

Dzukija - Lietkabelis 89-80
