Motiejus Krivas a 7-foot-2 center has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the University of Arizona. Krivas who played Zagiris pro team last season in Lithuania averaged 13.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 26 minutes per game.
“Motiejus is an outstanding player and person,” Lloyd said, “and we are excited to have he and his family join our program. His is a skilled front court player with great touch around the basket, strong passing ability and can make an impact at the rim on the defensive end. Coming from Zalgiris II in Lithuania, one of the top youth clubs in Europe, he has been part of their elite development program and helped them win at the highest level.”
Krivas is ranked No. 18 on Eurospects’ list of top European players born in 2004. He helped lead Zalgiris’ top youth club to the Lithuanian second division championship last season.
