Date: November 27, 2012 Rather expected game in Kaunas where bottom-ranked Lithuanian LSU-Baltai (0-6) was defeated by second ranked Estonian Kalev/Cramo (4-2) 73-61 on Tuesday. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 73-61. Kalev/Cramo dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to LSU-Baltai's 32. Kalev/Cramo forced 20 LSU-Baltai turnovers. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Kalev/Cramo made 7 blocks. American power forward Gary Wilkinson (205-82, college: Utah St.) fired 21 points for the winners. U.S. Virgin Islands center Frank Elegar (208-86, college: Drexel) chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds. Guard Arunas Sakalauskas (190-91) produced 11 points and guard Sarunas Vingelis (191-89) added 9 points respectively for lost side. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Defending Estonian champion maintains second position with 4-2 record having four points less than leader Pieno Zvaigzdes. Loser LSU-Baltai still closes the standings with six games lost. Kalev/Cramo will have a break next round. LSU-Baltai will play at home against the league's leader Pieno Zvaigzdes (#1) in Pasvalys and hopes to get finally their first victory.
