Kisielius rakes in January honors

Pieno zvaigzdes have proved to be one of the premier teams in the Baltic Basketball League this season, as they tallied 8 victories in 10 games. One man, who has contributed a great deal to this success is Laimonas Kisielius. The forward led his team to three victories this month and earned the January MVP honors.


Kisielius had an outstanding month, as his statistical numbers grew exponentially. He doubled his scoring, rebounding and assist averages, while increasing all his shooting percentages.

Throughout the month, the Lithuanian averaged 21.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

What makes it all even more impressive, is his shooting – Kisielius' converted on 65% of his shots from two-point range, 56% of his long-range bombs and 80% of his free-throws.

The forward's best game was in Parnu, where the Lithuanian scored 27 points and tore down 9 rebounds, en route to his team's blow-out 108-80 victory against the Estonian club.

He followed it up with a 24-point, 6-rebound outing against Kalev/Cramo and then finished off the month with another double-digit performance in the big win against Jurmala/Fenikss.
