Basketball[edit]

Men's tournament[edit]

Lithuania's men's basketball team qualified for the Olympics by placing third at Eurobasket 2007. Because the reigning world champions (and automatic qualifiers), Spain, were second at that tournament, Lithuania joined Russia to fill out Europe's two continental qualification spots. The Lithuanian team will seek to get past the semifinal round for the first time since beginning to compete separately—in the four tournaments since then, Lithuania has taken three bronze medals and a fourth-place finish.

Roster

The following is the Lithuania roster in the men's basketball tournament of the 2008 Summer Olympics.[1]
