Siauliai defeat Parnu, make it five in a row

JONISKIS - The second game in Siauliai's region tour was met with another victory, as they handled Port of Parnu by a safe margin, taking home a 93-78 win.


Siauliai were deemed heavy favorites for this game, yet for over 25 minutes, the two teams battled as equals - trading blow for blow and the largest lead stuck at just five points.
