The coaching staff was in New Jersey today to watch St. Benedict’s 6’10″ Lithuanian forward Norbertas Giga. Giga chose to come to the states for high school basketball back in May and follows a similar path as current Patriot Marko Gujanicic. Florida State is one of the bigger programs on his radar as well.

Paul Hewitt’s coaching in the FIBA U19 games two years ago plays a role here. I always think of international recruits as risky but hopefully Hewitt’s made enough connections overseas to bring in someone who is the real deal.
