Kuzminskas Returns to Lithuania
July 10, 2001
BERKELEY - Saulius Kuzminskas, 6-11 forward, has elected not to return to the Cal basketball team, deciding instead to play professionally in his native Lithuania.
Kuzminskas saw action in 14 games as a freshman last season, scoring six points in 23 minutes of action. He missed the first six games of the year with a knee injury.
'We wish Saulius well,' said head coach Ben Braun. 'We appreciate his contributions to our program, but certainly understand his desire to be closer to his family.'
A native of Vilnius, Lithuania, Kuzminskas is training with the Under-20 Lithuanian National team this summer.
