Slovenia National Basketball Team Gets Through to the Semifinals of the European Championship

Slovenia made it into the top four teams having defeated Latvia in the EuroBasket tournament in Lille with a score of 103:97. In the semifinals, the Igor Kokoškov’s team will compete with the Spaniards – the current title-holders.

Slovenia and Spain are the only teams that have not lost a single match at the current championship.

The first ten minutes of the game with the Latvians ended with a score of 34:23 in favour of Slovenia. However, in the second quarter of the meeting, the teams exchanged places.

During the final part of the match, Slovenian basketball players managed to retain self-control. Using free throws, Luka Dončić made all 4 free shots and brought 27 points to the team for the last 21 seconds. This is the best spectacular result of the 18-year-old basketball player at the European championships.
