Brazdeikis, who was born in Kaunas and raised in Canada, compared his first impressions to his memories of college basketball. Specifically, with the game in the knockout stage of the NCAA tournament – the so-called “March Madness”.

– It’s definitely something new for me, this kind of game and environment. Eurobasket reminds me a bit of March madness, all the national teams from our group were in one gym, a bunch of teams around… – said the Lithuanian.


He made his first appearance at EuroBasket 2022 against current champion Slovenia, where he met one of the biggest basketball stars in the world, Luka Dončić.

Brazdeikis scored 8 points and 4 rebounds in 15 minutes of play, and Lithuania lost the match 85:92, while the aforementioned basketball player had to guard Luka Dončić and feel what it means to stop the Slovenian prodigy.

– Definitely, some referee decisions were debatable. There is no doubt. You know, when you have a superstar like that, he’s going to get some decisions in his favor. So you just need to keep your cool. You can’t pay too much attention to that – said Brazdeikis, a reports “BasketNJuz“.
