Here is the weekly review of the top performing Lithuanian players, who play currently abroad.


Martynas Gecevicius
Martynas Gecevicius
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Martynas Gecevicius (193-88, currently plays in Greece). He was the major contributor in Olympiacos' victory against the league outsider Kavala (0-6) crushing them 113-62 in the Greek A1 in Monday night's game. Gecevicius scored 17 points in a mere 19 minutes on the court. Olympiacos S.F.P. Pireus (6-0) is placed first in the A1. So far his team won all six games in the Regular Season. But this is still an early stage of the season and everything may happen. This year Gecevicius averages: 9.2ppg, 1.4rpg, 1.4apg, 3FGP: 31.6% and FT: 87.5% in the five games he played so far. He played for the Lithuanian senior national team one years ago.

Jonas Valanciunas
Jonas Valanciunas
   #2. Second place goes to an international center Jonas Valanciunas (211-92, currently plays in NBA), who plays in the NBA. Valanciunas could not help the Toronto Raptors (3-9) in their last game on Wednesday. Despite his very good performance the Toronto Raptors were edged 98-97 on the road by the Charlotte Bobcats. Valanciunas recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and getting 10 rebounds. But the season just started, so everything may happen. Valanciunas has relatively good stats this year: 8.6ppg, 6.0rpg, 1.2apg and FT: 77.8%. He is in the roster of the Lithuanian senior national team.

Simas Jasaitis
Simas Jasaitis
   #3. The Lithuanian player who performed third best last week abroad was an international small forward Simas Jasaitis (202-82, currently plays in Eurocup). Jasaitis led his Russian team Lokomotiv to an easy victory against the closely-ranked Galatasaray (2-1) crushing them 91-66 in the Eurocup on Wednesday night. He scored 16 points in 39 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. Lokomotiv Kuban (3-0) is placed first in the Eurocup. So far his team won all three games in the Regular Season. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. This year Jasaitis has relatively solid stats: 14.3ppg, 3.3rpg, 2FGP: 69.2%, 3FGP: 46.7%(7-15) in the three games. He is also a member of the Lithuanian senior national team.

Martynas Pocius
Martynas Pocius
   #4. Shooting guard Martynas Pocius (196-86, agency: Interperformances, college: Duke, currently plays in Spain) contributed to a Real Madrid's victory against the league outsider Assignia Manresa (0-8) 97-84 in the Spanish ACB in Sunday night's game. Pocius scored 6 points. Real Madrid (8-0) is placed first in the ACB. So far his team won all eight games in the Regular Season. But the season is still in it's first stage and everything can happen. Pocius' overall stats this season are: 7.6ppg and 1.9rpg. He is also Lithuanian national team player.

Darius Songaila
Darius Songaila
   #5. An experienced international power forward Darius Songaila (204-78, agency: Priority Sports, college: Wake Forest, currently plays in Eurocup) led his Ukrainian team BC Donetsk to an overtime victory over the closely-ranked Trefl Sopot (0-3) 92-87 in the Eurocup last Wednesday. Songaila was MVP of the game. He scored 24 points, had 7 boards, passed 4 assists and added 3 steals in 30 minutes. It was the game of the round between two top 4 ranked teams. BC Donetsk (1-2) is placed third in the Eurocup. There are only three games left until the end of the Eurocup Regular Season. So now every game is very crucial. Songaila has reliable stats this year: 13.7ppg, 5.3rpg and 2.7apg in the three games. He plays currently for the Lithuanian national team.

Jonas Maciulis
Jonas Maciulis
   #6. Swingman Jonas Maciulis (199-85, currently plays in Euroleague) led his Greek team Panathinaikos to a victory against the second-ranked Real Madrid (4-2) 79-68 in the Euroleague on Thursday night. Maciulis scored 12 points. Panathinaikos Athens (3-3) is placed fourth in group A. There are only four games left until the end of the Euroleague Regular Season. So now every game will be important. It's Maciulis' first season with the team. His stats this year are: 11.0ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.7apg and 1.2spg. Maciulis is an international player who is currently on the senior Lithuanian National Team roster.

Linas Kleiza
Linas Kleiza
   #7. International small forward Linas Kleiza (203-85, college: Missouri, currently plays in NBA) is a teammate of previously mentioned Jonas Valanciunas. But that was another game of his team in NBA which we would like to mention. Kleiza helped Toronto Raptors win their game against the Orlando Magic (4-7) 97-86. He scored 12 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in 26 minutes. The Toronto Raptors have rather weak 3-9 record this season. Kleiza averaged so far 8.1ppg and 3.3rpg in the seven games. He is also Lithuanian national team player.

Donatas Zavackas
Donatas Zavackas

Zavackas scored 11 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. VEF Riga (4-2) is placed third in group B. But there are still lots of games to play and it's a long way to go. Zavackas' overall stats this season are: 9.0ppg, 5.5rpg and 1.2apg. He used to play for the Lithuanian U20 national team back in 2000.

Antanas Kavaliauskas

Kavaliauskas helped his Latvian team VEF Riga edge the eighth-ranked CEZ Nymburk (2-4) 83-81. He scored 10 points, had 6 rebounds and dished 3 assists in 26 minutes. Kavaliauskas averaged so far 10.8ppg, 5.8rpg and 1.2apg in the six games. He is also in the roster of the Lithuanian national team.

Despite Peciukas' very good performance Targu Mures was badly defeated 93-75 at home by the higher-ranked (#4) CSM Bucuresti. He was the top scorer with 25 points in 37 minutes. Peciukas averaged so far 13.3ppg, 2.6rpg and 1.6apg in the eight games. He used to play for the Lithuanian university national team seven years ago.

   #12. Former U21 international power forward Valdas Dabkus (204-84, currently plays in Poland) helped Energa Czarni win their game against the closely-ranked Trefl Sopot 78-72 in the Polish TBL last Sunday.
