2010 HoopHall Classic: Top Prospects
January 20, 2010
Jonathan Givony

One of the most pleasant surprises to emerge from the HoopHall Classic, Lithuanian power forward Gilvydas Biruta did an excellent job of asserting himself and showing his potential as a high major sleeper.

6-8, with long arms, a big frame that is currently lacking definition, and athleticism that initially appears to be below average, Biruta doesn't overwhelm you on first glance. He's a tough guy, though, and a better athlete than he gets credit for, running the floor well and getting off the ground for a couple of impressive finishes in transition and put-back dunks.

Biruta produced in this fashion, and also stepped outside and knocked down a couple of 3-pointers, which is a nice skill to have from your big man. On the downside, he doesn't appear to be a great rebounder and is a bit limited on the defensive end with his average lateral quickness. While his potential probably isn't off the charts, Biruta looks like a nice pickup for Rutgers, and will likely develop into a solid Big East player.
