Kestutis Kemzura announced preliminary list of candidates for the Lithuanian National Team for the pre-Olympic Qualifying Tournament, which will be held in Venezuela this summer. In a press conference in Vilnius, the coach confirmed the extended list of players, but also said that only 15 of them will be invited to the first training camp. I wanted to let all these players know that they can be of use to the national team and they can end up being invited, but we just dont have enough time to test them all before the pre-Olympic Qualifying Tournament, said Kemzura. According to the coach, it is still unclear whether Sarunas Jasikevicius (192-G-76, college: Maryland) will put on a Lithuanian jersey this summer, as the player hasnt made a final decision about the coming to the national team. There are also some doubts about the two Montepaschi players, as Ksistof Lavrinovic (210-C-79) has admitted back pains and openly doubted whether hell be available for selection in the summer and Rimantas Kaukenas (192-G-77, college: Seton Hall) has just returned from a serious injury, but should start playing soon. Four players got the first call-up to the national team, amongst which are the names of Rolandas Alijevas (192-G-85, agency: Ryzhov Stanislav), Adas Juskevicius (194-G/F-89), Zygimantas Janavicius (192-G-89, agency: Interperformances) and Antanas Kavaliauskas (208-C-84, agency: Interperformances, college: Texas A&M).
