“Ryto” basketball players played much more successfully in the productive beginning of the match. After 3 minutes of play, the people of Vilnius were ahead 13:6. Long-range shots helped G. Žibėnas’ students keep the initiative in their hands for a while (they hit 4 out of 5 three-pointers), but the home team equalized the score at 19:19 after Martin Geben’s two-pointer.

BAXI continued to increase the revolutions – at the beginning of the second quarter, after a spurt, they completely took control of the game in their hands, and the Vilnius players, who started to make mistakes, trailed 21:31. Marcus Foster ended Ryto’s scoring drought with an accurate foul shot. With the efforts of the defender and Jarvis Williams, the guests’ offensive machine rebounded – 30:33.

Frankie Ferrari knocked the “Ryto” team back with two three-pointers and restored a double-digit advantage to the home team (30:41). M. Foster slowed down the accelerating Manresa team a little with a three-pointer – Rytas trailed 37:45 in the middle of the game.

After the big break, the hole for the people of Vilnius began to deepen. BAXI organized an 8-point run without an answer, the difference between the teams increased to 16 points (37:53). M. Foster ended the scoreless break of more than three minutes with a three-pointer.
