Vita Kuktiene - EuroBasket Women 2015 Profile

Kuktiene is playing abroad in a top-ranked European league, something of a rarity for a member of the modern Lithuanian women's national team. This is even more surprising considering that she will soon turn 35-years old and is firmly in the twilight years of her career. But the physical prowess and productivity of the Ukmerge-born star is so high, that she has been granted the chance of a Final Round return, some eight years since she last featured at the event. While she might not be so impressive in numbers at Girona, Kuktiene is still adept in doing the dirty work and stands as a formidable figure on defence. She is famous for her determination to succeed and so will be of great help in the process of forming a winning mentality inside this young Lithuanian camp.
