Adas Šimonis and Rokas Jocius also joined him, but in 7bet-NKL these two basketball players will be able to compete for a double license. Jacob Rubin and Andreas Kalogiros remained on the team coached by E. Justas, who are expected to continue to lead the capital’s team forward.
“We had a short vacation in the summer,” said E. Justa. – After that, we immediately got to work. To this day, we are happy with the players we have and the coaches who are online. It is very important that we managed to keep the leaders of last season, it shows the continuity of the team. We want to grow with them and give them the best conditions to play at the highest level. “
New faces. Pearl Energies this summer Lukas Valantinas, Pijus Rimkus, Erikas Jermolajevas and others remained in the ranks. However, the capital team not only preserved the core of last season, but also received a solid reinforcement – one of the most promising Lithuanian eighteen-year-olds Gytis Valickas and Augustinas Kiudulas came from Vilnius “Rivilė”, who became the vice-champions of the Regional Basketball League last season.
“They are ambitious and motivated players,” the newcomers praised the team. coach, – Vilnius residents who give themselves one hundred percent in training. During the preparation stage, A. Kiudulas demonstrated stable results, we believe that this may be his breakthrough season. ”
