Slovenia, Eurobasket reigning champions, are out of the FIBA Basketball World Cup
Slovenia lost against Ukraine 82-54 and is mathematically out of next the FIBA World Cup.
This is the biggest surprise of the day in the FIBA WC Qualifiers.
Luka Doncic and Goran Dragic, that a little more than 12 months ago won Eurobasket in Turkey, won’t be able to compete in the next FIBA flagship event in China in September 2019.
Slovenia is at risk of missing the next Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.
Slovenia needs a wild card to participate in one of the Olympic prequalifying tournaments and win it.
