Thursday July 14 2011 – 3:55pm Eastern – Toronto, ON

After leading Lithuania to the gold medal in the Under 19 World Championship earlier in the week and winning the tournament MVP award as well, the folks at FIBA put together this highlight pack of Jonas Valanciunas.

For Raptor fans starving for anything and everything related to Toronto’s 5th overall pick, check out this link and see some of Valanciunas’ standout plays from an impressive two weeks overseas:

Valanciunas averaged 23 PPG, 13.9 REB, and about 3 BLK at the Under 19′s and he shot  just under 60% FG and 81% from the free throw line.

Rumblings out of Lithuania say the young big man could suit up for his homeland’s senior team when they compete in Euro Basket 2011 later this summer.
