Luka Doncic and the Slovenian national team are making the most out of their time in Kaunas. While both Poland and Angola aren’t considered traditional powers in the basketball world, combining a total of 230 points in just two days is impressive.
Doncic stepped up for Aleksandar Sekulic’s selection with a double-double of 18 points, 10 assists along with 6 rebounds in 21 minutes in a 112-77 win over Poland, before heading to the bench as Slovenia held on to a large margin by the middle of the third period.
Sharpshooter Klemen Prepelic took charge in the second half to finish the game with 17 points, 4 assists and Gregor Hrovat had 16 points, as Sekulic kept shuffling his rotation, taking advantage of the large deficit.
On the other end of the court, Mateusz Ponitka had 16 points to lead Poland, which will play against the winner of Group A in the semifinals.
Slovenia has topped Group B of the Kaunas tournament and has already advanced to the semifinals, where they will face the team that ranks second in Group A (Venezuela, Lithuania or South Korea).
