Lithuanian Guard Makes His Choice

Linas Lekavicius, a point guard from The Miller School in Charlottesville, made a commitment. Last year, Lekavicius averaged 28 points a game.

American Lands Guard

Lithuanian Linas Lekavicius was down to College of Charleston and American. He visited both schools and reached a decision this week.

"He's committed to American University," Miller School coach Fred Wawner said. "They've been recruiting him for a good while. They did a great job. He visited two weeks ago and felt real comfortable. He feels like he can go in there and make an impact right away."

As a junior Lekavicius averaged 28 points and five assists a game. He's been an integral part of The Miller School's team since his arrival from Lithuania. "He's the heart and soul of our success. We went to the state semifinals and he's just a great kid. Basketball wise we've been fortunate to play some really good teams and I haven't seen anyone better than him."

At American, Linas could find himself playing both guard positions. "He's athletic enough that he gets to the rim and he's strong enough that he can defend kids bigger than him."
