The SIL-King Mindaugas Cup trophy will return to Kaunas for the second year in a row, as title-holders Zalgiris defended their crown with an 81-62 victory against Lietuvos Rytas in the Final.

Having spearheaded the team's back-to-back title run, Edgaras Ulanovas was once again named the Most Valuable Player after also receiving the honors last year.

The 26-year-old forward finished the game with a game-high 21 points and 8 rebounds. Meanwhile, Aaron White and Kevin Pangos chipped in with 14 and 11 points, respectively.

Zalgiris found themselves down 35-33 at the halftime break, but stepped up their game after the intermission and outscored their opponents 48-27 in the third and fourth quarters.

Chris Kramer was the only double-digit scorer for Lietuvos Rytas with 16 points next to his name in his losing effort.

Earlier in the day, Lietkabelis triumphed in the third-place game after defeating Dzukija 81-78 in a close-fought game.
