He was known internationally as a pure shooter, his smooth, left-handed launches leading the Soviet Union to the 1988 Olympic gold medal. But in his first National Basketball Assn. season, Golden State Warriors guard Sarunas Marciulionis has displayed a flashy, penetrating style that would make one wonder whether he's been studying tapes of Nate Archibald. "A lot of players in Lithuania are like that," Marciulionis said, matter of factly.

One of the reasons Golden State Coach Don Nelson traded veteran Mitch Richmond to Sacramento for rookie Billy Owens was Sarunas Marciulionis.

In a questionnaire he filled out for the school's sports information office a few years ago, California quarterback Troy Taylor listed among his future goals and ambitions a desire to buy a white Lamborghini Countach. As an undergraduate, Taylor drives "a '69 VW bug that I basically push more than I drive," he said.

Waiting with outstretched arms to catch him, along with other members of the team, are four Lithuanians, including perhaps the best players the Soviets have ever had--center Arvydas Sabonis and guard Sarunas Marciulionis.
