Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius cruised to an important 63-77 road win over Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd on Wednesday. The victory lifted Rytas into a share of second place in Group E at 2-1, while Oktyabr, playing its first game under new coach Dirk Bauermann, dropped to 1-2. The game was close through halftime, at which points Rytas led 29-32. The hosts went ahead 36-34 early in the third quarter but Rytas used a 0-12 third-quarter run and a 0-10 fourth quarter charge to wrap up the win. Adas Juskevicius paced Rytas with 13 points and 5 assists, Mindaugas Lukauskis and Martynas Gecevicius added 10 points apiece and Gediminas Orelik corralled 10 rebounds for the winners. Marcus Cousin netted 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Oktyabr and DJ Kennedy scored 13 in defeat.

The visitors scored the first two baskets through Antanas Kavaliauskas and Orelik en route to a 1-6 start. A Gecevicius triple made it 3-9 before the hosts responded quickly through Bernard King and Kennedy – both assisted by Cousin – to get within 1. Kennedy tied the game with a three, but Juskevicius put Rytas back ahead and Lukauskis added a three, however Fedor Likholitov scored on the offensive glass and Kennedy, with his 9th point of the quarter, tied the game at 18-18 through 10 minutes. Paulius Dambrauskas put Rytas up 4 early in the second quarter, but Oktyabr answered back to take a 23-22 edge on King’s basket-plus-foul. Billy Baron come off the bench and made an impact for Rytas with a layup and a triple to make it 27-30. After a Cuthbert Victor basket for Oktyabr and another from Kyryl Natyazhko, the teams headed into the break at 29-32.

Baskets by Cousin and Kennedy put Oktyabr ahead early in the second half. Cousin made it 36-34 with a free throw. Rytas responded as Juskevicius and Orelik drained threes in a 0-12 charge to take control. Deandre Kane and Deandre Liggins each scored to keep Oktyabr in the picture at 41-46, however Lukauskis and Gecevicius answered with back-to-back triples. Gecevicius free throws gave the visitors their biggest lead, 41-54. A Likholitov tip-in made it an 11-point game through three quarters. Cousin carried Oktyabr within 47-54 early in the fourth quarter, but a pair of Juskevicius threes devastated the home crowd at 49-63. Juskevicius finished off a 0-10 charge with a layup as Rytas essentially put the game to rest. Both teams scored plenty more baskets over the final few minutes, but Rytas never led its comfortable lead slip en route to second place in the group.

BAUERMANN, DIRK
Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd
"First of all, I want to thank all of the Volgograd fans, they are really amazing. I think that today our players wanted to do very much and overreacted sometimes. We need some time to build a team that can beat such teams as Lietuvos Rytas. This process is very complicated, but believe me – things here will be only getting better. "
SESKUS, VIRGINIJUS
Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius
"First of all, I think the focal point of today game was our defense in the second half. It was good for that we shot better and made a lot of threes. Krasny Oktyabr is going through the transition process and today their players tried to show all their best abilities in front of a new coach. Maybe it played against them. "
