His father, Darius, is a legendary former professional player in Lithuania and is currently one of the nation’s top player developers. His sister, Ugne signed on to play for Providence this season.

Sirtautas is the 10th newcomer to the program this offseason, joining guards Jacob Theodosiou, Kobe Newton, Akuel Kot, Sam Griffin, Nigle Cook and Kael Combs. Forwards Cam Manyawu, Mason Walters and Kojenets also signed with the Pokes.

Linder also inked Laramie native Levi Brown last week. The 6-foot, 167-pound true freshman helped lead the Plainsmen to the state title game for the first time since 2011. He netted 23 points in a semifinals victory over Cody. That was a career high.
