Laurynas Birutis was named the Betsafe LKL Player of the Week after helping Siauliai cement fifth place in the league standings with another strong couple of games.

After a rather quiet 8-point and 7-rebound performance in a defeat against Lietuvos Rytas, the up-and-coming big man bounced back with a 19-point and 12-rebound double-double versus Dzukija.

He averaged a league-best efficiency of 23.5 during the two-game stretch last week.

His teammate Donatas Sabeckis, Zanis Peiners of Lietkabelis, Aleksandr Zakharov of Nevezis and Vytautas big man Egidijus Dimsa rounded out the Team of the Week.
