“The decision was based on our positional needs. We couldn’t find a place where Lukauskis’ could use his skills to the maximum. Eitutavicius, on the other hand, just lacked some experience at the highest level,” Kemzura said.
Lithuanian roster for the World Championship in Turkey: Mantas Kalnietis, Tomas Delininkaitis, Renaldas Seibutis, Martynas Gecevicius, Martynas Pocius, Simas Jasaitis, Jonas Maciulis, Linas Kleiza, Paulius Jankunas, Tadas Klimavicius, Robertas Javtokas and Martynas Andriuskevicius.
