Birutis named Betsafe LKL Player of the Week
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.
