Alytaus Dzukija shocked Neptunas Klaipeda as they beat them in the quarter-finals of SIL-King Mindaugas Cup on the road 85-77.

This was a huge blow for Neptunas, as the Final Four of SIL-King Mindaugas Cup will be held in Klaipeda.

The visitors were the better team from the start. They were by 7 (39-32) points after the first half and they hold onto that lead until the end.

Neptunas tried to bounce back with a winning third quarter, but they ran of fuel down the last strech.

The American Parrish “Perry” Petty led the winning side with a double-double game. He 17 points and 11 rebounds, but he was also dominating in defense. He locked the hosts with 6 steals.

Edgaras Zelionis had 13 points and 12 boards for Neptunas, but that didn’t cut it.

In the second game today Lietkabelis prevailed over Pieno Zvaigzdes at home  86-76 thanks to Simas Jasaitis who scored 20 points.
