By: P.T., STA

The Slovenian men’s basketball team lost 89:90 against France in the semi-finals of the Olympic basketball tournament on Thursday and will hence play for the bronze medal against Australia on Saturday.

This is Slovenia’s first loss at the tournament after the team sailed through the group phase and outperformed Germany in the quarter-finals. In scoring, Slovenia were led by Mike Tobey with 23 points and Klemen Prepelič with 17 points, while NBA superstar Luka Dončić scored a triple-double, collecting 16 points, 10 rebounds and 18 assists for only a third Olympics triple-double ever.
