Mockevicius, Egidijus Evansville 6'10" 237 C SR. Mockevicius is an outstanding rebounder and highly efficient player. He is a 23 year old power forward that was dominant at times for Evansville. He averaged 15.7 points, and 13.9 rebounds per game as a Senior. The 13.9 boards was the best in the entire NCAA. He improved during his four years, besting his previous scoring and rebounding averages with each season. He shot a career 61% FG, and 73% FT. He uses either hand well around the basket. He did not attempt any three point shots. Mockevicius also had the best defensive rating in the entire NCAA. Mockevicius is from Lithuania. Mockevicius is 6'10" but his standing reach is 9'0" (or a full 3.5" higher than 7'0" prospect, Stephen Zimmerman). Mockevicius will be in the lower half of NBA athletes. His 3/4 court sprint time (3.49 seconds) is similar to Greivis Vasquez, and Alan Williams. His decision making is suspect too. He had just nine assists this season (55 turnovers).  ...While the Missouri Valley Conference is never known for production of NBA BIGs, we think Mockevicius has a chance. He was named to the MVC All-Defensive team three seasons in a row. His rebounding ability is sure to translate to the NBA. ...We think Mockevicius is being underrated. The consensus is that he will not be drafted. We would use a pick on him for sure.
