Ok. Let's see what eja can immediately tell you about this.
Vytautas.....Grand Duke...basically the father of Lithuania. The team is named after Lietuva's George Washington character. Defended the country from the Teutonic knights (basically of Germany/Prussia). I think may have Christianized that country.
Lietuva (as they call themselves). Size of West Virginia and Rhode Island combined.
The language....one of the oldest unchanged languages in the world. Not slavic. Not romance. Baltic. Totally learnable if you put in the effort, but it will throw you off.
Cooking there is basically a thousand ways to make a potato. The winters are pretty harsh leading to a love of fresh foods/vegetables. Almost no American chains whatsoever, and almost certainly not in the town they are in.
Women.....some of the most gorgeous in the world. Way more so than LA. Very charming. Then you marry them and they take over.
Alcohol. They need to start working on their tolerance asap. Due to the climate it's a beer/vodka place.
Culture....with the possible exception of American basketball players it is well within the realm of possibility every Lithuanian in that town has never seen a black person in their entire lives.
Basically LaVarr has managed to steer his boys to a team worse than any D League team and any team in D1. I mean maaayybbbee a bad team in whatever division Farleigh Dickinson is in could maybe be worse than this team. Maybe.
Ok. They'll be in the town of Birstonas. Nice place to live really. Not far from Lietuva's 2nd biggest city Kaunas, well known as the most Lithuanian of Lithuanian cities as their capital Vilnius was quite Polishized at one point. Kaunus is a huge university town, so assuming the boys learn their Lithuanian (Taip! Ira ka ira!) they could go shopping there and enjoy a nice time. The two pizza places I recommend are Cili pica and Charlie Pizza (named after Charlie Chaplin ...I kid you not). I recommend the ham and hollandaise sauce pizza and the Utenos beer. Some of the younger crowd in this town will speak some English.
I am certain the value of their UCLA scholarships exceeded (possibly by quite a bit) the value of their new Lithuanian minor league contracts.
