Exclusive interview with Jurgita Kausaite -Current Men's Ass.Coach of Solna Vikings - Jan 7, 2013

Jurgita Kausaite won't say for sure she's the first female assistant coach of professional male basketball players in the world, but she almost certainly is in Sweden.With her busy schedule, Jurgita Kausaite took the moment to tell us more about making a huge transition in her career and taking the opportunity to be part of the one most respectable men's clubs in Sweden - Solna Vikings. Also, she is Ass.Coach of Swedish Senior Women's National Team that will participate in Eurobasket 2013 in France. Kausaite is Head Coach of Boys 99' of Solna Vikings too.

1) Coach, it is a true joy to be able to chat with you. How have you found your way as a Lithuanian woman in Men's Swedish league, and as the first men's assistant coach of Solna Vikings? Most recently, you were in coaching womens seniors Solna Vikings team, now you are First mens Assistant Coach for Solna Vikings.

This curve in my coaching career was definitely unexpected and challenging in so many ways. Decisions we make are based on our past experiences. Throughout my playing career I have had many great coaches in my life who influenced and shaped my thinking. My mom was an inspirational woman. I look at every challenge as an investment. I stopped playing at age 38. I was fortuned to get a head coach job in Solna Vikings womens team direct after winning my last championship with them. I am very driven and competitive person, so I search for things which are challenging, different and demanding. I am still a young coach (my 4th year) and I want to learn that is why I said yes to assist in the mens league. I find it very educational to work with Aristeidis Lykogiannis, a greek coach with many years of experience.

2) Can you tell us the main difference between womens and mens basketball?


There is no need to discuss about mans phsycial ability eventhough every year we see increase in great athletes in the womens basketball as well. There is more and more women players who are fast, strong and can dunk.
I will try to compare eventhough I have very little work experience with being involved in the mens basketball. I always thought that men tend to have less patience and carry bigger egos, but with every day I am changing my perception. It is up to coach what kind of basketball your team will demonstrate. We have great characters in our team, and that makes a big difference in how we play as a unit.
On the basketball floor women tend to trust more on the group performance. They execute plays with higher patience and rely more on each other as guys trust more on there 1x1 ability. Language is definitely rougher in the mens league. Women are more in details.
There are more similarities than differences. Women work as hard as men, dreams are the same and both are vulnareble equally.

3) How do you see the evolution of the game, over the course of your career as a professional player? Having been a part of epic games in International competition and National Team Games.
Increased versitality. By that I mean, that gap of skills between point guard and post players descreases. Even a post player can be a playmaker in todays basketball. Players mobility allows more switches in pick/roll game for example. Versitality and mobility combined make sport very attractive. Supplements/resourses/deeper knowledge in training - all those things make players better and stronger. Changes in rules elevate basketball to different highs.

4) You are a womens assistant coach for Swedish National Team.
What have you learned in mens basketball so you can apply in womens national team during the summer?


It has been only 3,5 month since I am working with men. First few practises I felt like swimming in the unknown waters. I had to get familiar and comfortable quick. I did it. Everything is more intense. Since we play more games than in the womens league, the load of work in terms of scouting is bigger. I also work with someone who comes from a different culture. I learn small things everyday, it is hard to put in a few sentences. I work in the mens world and I feel good and confident. That feeling I definitely bring with me to the Swedish womens national team.

5) : What are you plans for this season 2012/2013 with Solna Vikings?


We have won last 5 games and we feel strong. I am so pleased how good people we have to work with. In this business it is very important to be surrounded by geniuine and hard working players. There so little time and so many expectations. First step to success is finding a dialog and being on the same page. At this moment we have both and that is why I think we have pretty good chances being very competitive in the playoff time.

6) Do you want to share anything with young players and coaches, not only in Sweden but also in Lithuania and across the globe?

Make mistakes. Find your own style. Learn as much as you can. Be a role model for someone, it shows your character! It is important to give back. Be fair. Have a mentor. Be honest and humble in your work. That I learned from my father.

7) Whats the best advice you can give to the basketball player?


Nothing in life comes easy, so you need to be pationate and patient in what you do. Expect ups and downs but never be happy with your average effort.

Thank you Coach for your time. Eurobasket and Tamara Ruzic wish you good luck with men's team Solna Vikings for the rest of the season. We also wish you the best with Women's Senior National Team in France 2013

Basketettan Round 12: Derby game ends with KFUM Fryshuset's defeat of KFUM Central - 3 days ago

The most interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Stockholm: KFUM Fryshuset (#6) and KFUM Central (#7). KFUM Central was smashed at home by 23 points 77-100 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. The game without a history. KFUM Fryshuset led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter.
