And a victorious series " Zhalgiris " it was not settled by Uniform league VTB where he was in time " to put " The main competitor — the operating owner of a trophy of CSKA. Lithuanians go W/ O failures and in more status competition — to Euroleague, having won all five matches. Therefore defeat from not sufficing stars from sky VEFa has called so wide resonance.
Latvians it is surprisingly tenacious kept for the favourite throughout all match, without allowing " to Zhalgiris " to escape FWD and as a result have dragged Lithuanians in the extremely intense ending. The mad spirit has allowed rizhanam to take away in a solving quarter already eight selections on another`s board that has predetermined MTG exod. Veteran Donatas Zavatskas who has typed 17 points, and 30 seconds prior to a siren broken 2 a ring W a solving throw was ESP Gud.
