Terp alum Sarunas (94-98) leads Lithuania into the Olympics. Too bad Greivis couldn't lead the Venezuelan team to the Olympics
Dangerous floater is probably the best way to describe Lithuania. This roster, thanks in part to the injury absence of seasoned big man Robertas Javtokas, lacks the depth and know-how of the Lithuanian squads that racked up three bronzes and two fourth-place finishes in their first five trips to the Olympics as an independent nation.
But you can rest assured that no one looks forward to playing these guys. You can also rest assured that, with longtime Stein Line HQ favorite Sarunas Jasikevicius still running the show at age 36 and bouncy rookie big man Jonas Valanciunas about to receive his first dose of extended exposure to an NBA audience before joining the Toronto Raptors, your trusted rankings committee (of one) will be at the front of the line to watch them.
