To be fair, Lithuania played a bit over their heads last summer (of course they could have had an even better result if not for the refs rigging their game against the USA). And then this summer they have no Klieza, who seemed to have become their new leader last summer, and really I don't think adding back in Kaukenas and Saras was the smartest thing to do.

However, it is still Lithuania, with many very experienced Euroleague players and they are playing at home. So yeah, saying they have no chance to advance is nuts. Lithuania is capable of winning the whole tournament.
