Rytas and Zalgiris have qualified to the Final Four directly while 3rd-6th placed teams will play best-of-three play-offs.



Ventspils vs. VEF Riga

Siauliai vs. Rock



Now about Rytas - Zalgiris game. It was probably the most entertaining game between these two teams this season. Rytas played without two leaders - Jomantas and Bjelica while Zalgiris had all of their players available. Despite that the game was very close. Baynes was fouled out in the middle of the third quarter. Then Bajramovic and Valanciunas got into foul trouble but the score remained very tight. In the end both teams had the chance to win and it was Zalgiris who was victorious this time.



Zalgiris fails to use their potential. That's happening for a number of years now. Looking at today's rosters of both teams it was Kaunas side who seemed to be the favourite. But that wasn't the case on the floor.



Rytas showed they're no quitters again. Despite getting in the foul trouble they did not give up and even went ahead in the third quarter. When Zalgiris went up by 10 in the fourth quarter Rytas managed to close the gap.



This game suggest the BBL final and LKL finals to be very tight but history has shown that a conclusions drawn after one game don't always come true.

The Final Four will be hosted in Siemens arena on April 23-24. Yet another Final Four in Siemens this season. They should have rather chosen some venue which would have the chance to be sold out. It was already weird watching LKF Final Four in a half-empty arena.

Quote:[size="3"]Fate of MasterCard BBL Final Four Bronze medals and upcoming MasterCard BBL Season 2010/2011[/size]



On May 5th, The MasterCard BBL Board met in Vilnius.



The main accepted resolutions were:



1. The protest of BC Ventspils regarding the result of the bronze-medal game was declined because the Regulations of the BBL Elite Division do not provide for the use of scoreboard video in the arbitration of the games. In the interests of Fair Play, the BBL Board decided to award third place to BC Siauliai and BC Ventspils jointly. The third-place award ceremonies will be conducted for each of these clubs during the bronze-medal games of their respective countries. The third-place prize fund will be split equally among the two teams, 7500 EUR to each.



2. During the meeting the Board approved the system of play, and participant teams for the 2010/2011 season. The BBL teams for next season are:



Lithuania:



o Lietuvos Rytas

o Zalgiris

o Siauliai

o Nevezis

o Perlas

o Rudupis



Latvia:



o Ventspils

o VEF Riga

o Valmiera

o Liepajas Lauvas



Estonia:



o Kalev/Cramo

o TU/Rock

o TTU



Sweden:



o Dolphins



For the 2010/2011 Season, Zalgiris and Lietuvos Rytas will be given byes during the regular season, and will join play during the playoffs with the reigning BBL Champion, Zalgiris being seeded first, and the runner up, Lietuvos Rytas second. The remaining six playoff teams will come from the six top positions at the end of the regular season.
