Lithuania turn focus to EuroBasket with final roster revealed

KAUNAS (Lithuania) - Lithuania wasted little time in turning their attention to FIBA EuroBasket 2022 after revealing their final 12-player roster following a win in the World Cup European Qualifiers.

The big man duo of Domantas Sabonis and Jonas Valanciunas lead the way for Lithuania with Sabonis set for a first EuroBasket appearance since 2015. Meanwhile, Valanciunas will make it five in a row having first appeared at the tournament over a decade ago.

Lithuania picked up two wins in the August window of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Qualifiers as they head to Cologne, Germany with plenty of confidence to take into Group B action.

Rokas Jokubaitis is the youngest player on the roster with the 21-year-old guard taking on the mantle in the backcourt as one of several players set to make their EuroBasket debuts.
