One of the most pleasant surprises to emerge from the HoopHall Classic, Lithuanian power forward Gilvydas Biruta did an excellent job of asserting himself and showing his potential as a high major sleeper.

6-8, with long arms, a big frame that is currently lacking definition, and athleticism that initially appears to be below average, Biruta doesn't overwhelm you on first glance. He's a tough guy, though, and a better athlete than he gets credit for, running the floor well and getting off the ground for a couple of impressive finishes in transition and put-back dunks.

Biruta produced in this fashion, and also stepped outside and knocked down a couple of 3-pointers, which is a nice skill to have from your big man. On the downside, he doesn't appear to be a great rebounder and is a bit limited on the defensive end with his average lateral quickness. While his potential probably isn't off the charts, Biruta looks like a nice pickup for Rutgers, and will likely develop into a solid Big East player.
