The game between Lietuvos Telekomas and Lotos VBW Clima Gdynia should not have been terribly exciting. Lietuvos Telekomas had already lost their chances of qualifying for the playoffs long before tonight’s game and Lotos VBW Clima were already there. But that was before the game started...
The one thing that Ros Casares Valencia could not afford in their final home game of the season was a loss. Matched up with Lithuanian side Lietuvos Telekomas Vilnius, that is exactly what they got, losing 60:61. The pill was all the more bitter to swallow due to the fact that Vilnius scored at the buzzer, seriously denting Valencia’s play-off hopes.
For Vilnius, on the other hand, the win was one of the sweetest of the season. Having lost 5 of their 13 games this season by 4 points or less, they were certainly due a victory.
Despite a 3-9 record in the EuroLeague Women, Lietuvos Telekomas can consider themselves slightly unlucky this season. 7 of their 12 games have been decided by 5 points or less, and they have lost 5 of them.
Tonight against Russian side Samara they put up another good fight, but ultimately lost by 3 points, 56:59.
With probably the most improbable win of the EuroLeague season, MiZo-Pécsi VSK have preserved their chance of making the quarterfinals, even grabbing the top spot in Group B. The Hungarian champion beat Lietuvos Telekomas of Vilnius 63-56
