After the appointment of the world association Fiba, the team of national coach Gordon Herbert meets the top team around the defensive player of the Dallas Mavericks in the Audi Dome in Munich on August 28th. An official confirmation from the world association is still pending, but it is considered a formality. Slovenia secured second place in their Group C with an 84-81 victory in Sweden. Doncic scored 31 points.
Germany won its preliminary round group D prematurely. In August there is an away game on the 25th, before the home game in Munich on the 28th is also the dress rehearsal for the European Championships at home in Cologne and Berlin (September 1st to 18th). “That would be an ideal showdown and the ideal preparation for the European Championships,” Vice President Armin Andres said in advance of the possible constellation with Slovenia in Munich. Against group winners Finland it is only after the European Championship.
