Dario Saric earned the MVP trophy of the U18 European Championship in Vilnius on Sunday after winning the Gold Medal as well. These were two more awards for the already richly decorated young man (U16 Gold in 2010, NIJT 2011) from Croatia who once again showed that he is among the most dominant youth players [...]

The Lithuanian 1992 generation is one of the most successful ever in Europe. It all started with the Olympic Youth Festival in 2007 where the team from the Baltic country won the Gold Medal in the U15 category. They won the Gold Medal in 2008 in the U16 category where they dominated the tournament massively [...]

In the first part of our review on the U17 World Championship 2012, we take a look at the European players in the event. Four teams had qualified for Kaunas next to the hosts, so this might not be a good representation of whole talent group of the 1995 born players in Europe. But some [...]

The last day of the U17 World Championship 2012 started with the same situation than the days before, 30 degrees in the streets and nice atmosphere in the Zalgiris Arena. One major change though, Lithuania has qualified for the Olympic Games in London during the night. But that’s not why we traveled to the Baltic [...]
