MVP. It comes as no surprise that Jeromanovs’ historic night brought him the December MVP trophy. It was one-man dominance against Liepaja/Triobet, as he put up 39 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists to lead his team to an OT win. He was solid in two other games and averaged 23.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists throughout the month.
WEEKLY MVP. Karolis Petrukonis has been putting up terrific numbers in limited minutes this season, so it was quite logical he’d deliver when called upon. For the first time this season, he played more than 25 minutes and was an unstoppable force down low, scoring 25 points and tearing down 9 rebounds to become the Player of the Week.
IMPACT. It was possibly a career night for Vaidotas Volkus, but even that wasn’t enough for Parnu to take home a victory. The Lithuanian tallied 36 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists and finished the game with an efficiency rating of 40.
ZERO. That’s how many wins Barsy finish the year with. After getting drowned in a three-pointer hail against Jurmala/Fenikss, they suffered a tough defeat after a very close fight against Barons kvartals. They finished the year with a 0-6 record and are dead-last in Group A.
REVENGE. Three-pointers were key for Pieno Zvaigzdes, as they took revenge against Ogre/Kumho Tyre for their only loss of the year. The Lithuanians made 14-of-21 shots from behind the arc and that propelled them to a 102-91 win, pushing their record to 8-1.
