Vytautas bounce back with a win against Betsafe/Liepaja

PRIENAI - A fulfilling victory for Prienai, as they bounced back after last week's scandal with an 87-70 win against Betsafe/Liepaja. This was Vytautas' third win in four outings in the BBL.


The visitors enjoyed their first, and last, lead early in the opening quarter, as they started the quarter 5-2. However, that was as close to victory, as they got - Vytautas made their presence felt and finished the quarter up by seven.

The margin remained around the 8-10 point zone for most of the remaining half and Vytautas seemed on pace to victory.

After the break Betsafe/Liepaja managed to come as close as 6 points, but a surge in the middle of the third quarter put them way behind. Vytautas had 14 consecutive points and put the game out of reach.


Justas Sinica was the go-to guy, as he dropped five three-pointers en route to a 22-point performance. Martynas Linkevicius added 16 points and 8 rebounds, while Denys Lukashov had 12. Egidijus Dimsa and Eigirdas Zukauskas ended the game with 11 points apiece.

Karlis Apsitis was the top scorer for Liepaja with 13 points, as Roberts Krastins added 11. Kyle Benjamin finished close to a double-double with 10 points and 9 rebounds in his account.
