If Silas was still be here, I would say this was a pretty could pickup as I see Dainius as a guy who can give you a few minutes here and there and clog up the middle and get a few rebounds and that is the type of player that Evansville needed - a serviceable BIG guy - and Dainius potentially fits that role. However, I don't see him as THE guy (esp since Silas left). Looks like our best option is to pick up another "decent" big guy and play the center spot by committee (like last year). Evansville does have some players around the 5 spot, but they are looking like a donut team at the moment.
He seems like a nice kid who will work hard - so who knows.
I agree with your assessment. If Silas had stayed he might possibly have been a guy that could come in and bang the boards and set some screens. He is a substandard recruit IMO, but I am intrigued by his wide frame and strength - Aces have not had many players like that.
Sure wish Marty Hill would convince Vance Johnson to come down and join us.
