A center who is beginning to establish her reputation at the pro-level having produced some nice tournaments through the youth ranks, Svaryte is a bona-fide contender to be handed a place as a back-up under the hoop. She finished her youth career with a near double-double of 11.6 points and 9.1 rebounds last summer at the U20 European Championship in Debrecen and went on to post a strong club campaign. Not only able to operate effectively in the paint, Svaryte also brings her ability to stretch defences due to the threat she poses from long-range. She shot over 40% from downtown for Aistes, managing to drop 53 triples to show she won't hesitate to release whenever she is open. This additional dimension should weigh in her favour when Coach Paulauskas is deciding on his bench players.
