Slovenia looks set to challenge for a medal
It has been a very successful first appearance in the Olympics so far for Slovenia. They won their three matches in the group stages with commanding style. With Luka Doncic being at his best and his teammates also contributing with their best efforts, Slovenia have looked like a serious contender to challenge for the Gold Medal in Tokyo.
In their last match against Spain, Slovenia had to come back from 12 points down in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, they finished the match with a 9-0 run and turned the game around winning by eight points. Vlatko Cancar of the Denver Nuggets was the best scorer of the match with 22 points. Coach Sekulic has a host of NBA players at his disposal and will use them to challenge for a medal in this Olympics.
