Sarunas Jasikevicius Carries Lithuania's Flag at Olympic Opening Ceremony

Sarunas Jasikevicius (1994-98) is not only the only former Terp playing basketball in the Olympics this summer, but he was selected to be Lithuania's flag bearer for the opening ceremonies tonight. Watch for him on TV tonight!

Several former Terps are also competing in Beijing in field hockey and soccer. Former Terp field hockey players Lauren Powley and Sara Silvetti are blogging their Olympic experience.

Michelangelo do you know if Sarunas still keeps in touch with the Maryland program. They gave him an opportunity and I don't see him at any games? FREDTERP

I don't know how much he keeps in touch with the team or Coach Williams, but Sarunas plays professionally for a top team in Greece, so that doesn't afford many opportunities to stop by College Park during the basketball season.
