Pieno zvaigzdes break another scoring record

PASVALYS - Gediminas Petrauskas seems to have transitioned into his new position as Head Coach of Pieno zvaigzdes unbelievably quickly, as his team has just broken another scoring record in a 119-72 win against Tartu University.


The whopping 119 points was the best result in over a decade, as the all-time record was set back in the 2006/2007 season by another Lithuanian club Lietuvos Rytas.

The game seemed over before the players even broke a sweat, as the Lithuanians broke out to a 29-15 first quarter. If that wasn't bad enough, Pieno zvaigzdes put the game to bed in the second one, winning 33-14 and advancing their margin to 33 points.

The hosts kept on piling the points and it was clear to see Tartu were shocked and disheartened. The margin rose to a shocking 52 points late in the game, but the Estonians managed to cut back a couple points.

It was a wild night for the Pasvalys side, as they got 75 percent of their two-pointers and 53 percent of their threes to fall. They reached an incredible 161 ranking points, as every single player got on the score-sheet.

Eight players reached double-digit efficiency, but Vyacheslav Bobrov stood out with 21 points, playing a nearly faultless game and collecting an efficiency rating of 28. Arturs Ausejs added 19 points, while Tomas Lekunas chipped in with 17. Martynas Varnas also had a good night, tallying 16 points.

For Tartu University, Kristjan Kitsing and Janar Talts stood out as the best players, scoring respectively 16 and 15 points. Vytenis Cizauskas added another 15 points, but his 6 turnovers showed the trouble he went through throughout the game.
