Birutis rakes in March MVP honors

After full-out dominance in both international and domestic fronts, Laurynas Birutis was named the Player of the Month of March, making it his second award in the league this season.


After raking in the monthly honors in the Lithuanian Basketball League (LKL), the big man adds another Baltic Basketball League Player of the Month award to his tally.

Birutis averaged 18.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 21.8 ranking points per game, as his club continues its battle for a podium finish.

The young Center from Siauliai started the month off dropping 16 points and 13 rebounds as he finished off Ogre in the Quarterfinals. He followed that up with another great series against Pieno Zvaigzdes. His best game of the month was a loss against the Pasvalys club, where he tallied 22 points and 8 rebounds.

The award will be presented in Siauliai's final game of the season on the 4th of May, as the Lithuanians try to hold on to a slim margin in their battle for bronze.
