STA, 4 July 2021 - The Slovenian national basketball team will compete in the Tokyo Olympics after NBA star Luka Dončič led the team to a 96:85 win against Lithuania in the final of a qualifying tournament on Sunday.

Dončič scored a triple double with 31 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds. Vlatko Čančar added 18 points and Jaka Blažič 16.

Slovenia heads to Tokyo with a 4:0 record in the qualifying tournament, having defeated Angola, Poland, Venezuela and now Lithuania, a European basketball titan.

Indeed, this will be the first time after 1992 that Lithuania does not compete in the Olympic games.

In Tokyo Slovenia will play in group C alongside Spain, Argentina and Japan. The first game, against Argentina, is scheduled for 29 July.
