A member of the 2009-10 Lithuanian National Championship team and won the 2010 Lithuanian National Cup with Lietuvos rytas Vilnius...Took part in the 2010 Lithuanian All-Star Game...Won the gold medal at the 2008 European U-16 Championship...Paced the 2008 European U-16 Championship in blocked shots (2.3 bpg.)...Played at the 2009 European U-18 Championship and has had scouts anticipating his arrival on the international scene since breaking in with his native national program...A very good athlete who is still growing into his body and may not be done building on his height...Shows fluid movement towards the basket and can also face up and convert shots from 12 feet away...Doesn`t always show maximum effort at defensive end and when he gets lazy he gets into foul trouble...Must develop more moves on offense, but still his potential and up-side are something to marvel.
