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.

Kaukenas playing really great, he's shooting 85% in the tournament averaging most points in the team, it can't be bad
