His rival will be Francewhich beat Italy 84-77.

Despite some arreón of Slovenia, motivated above all by his success from the line of 6.75, Spain dominated the match from start to finish. It started better (14-26), with a very toned Mario Saint-Supery. The base, who became the youngest player to debut with Unicaja last year (he had not yet turned 16), had 14 points at the break (he finished with 31 plus 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 6 steals for a PIR of 35 ), but Slovenia he kept the pulse of the National Team at the hands of Urban Kroflic (15 goals).

Spain came out overwhelming in the third quarter and with a partial run of 0-14 they put it 39-53. Slovenia threatened to return to the match (52-60), but their attempt was left at that, in a feint. Saint-Supery, from the free throw line, put the +10 (52-62) and the National Team never came down from there. What’s more he had fun squeezing back and running whenever he could.

But Saint-Supery was not the only outstanding player of the National Team. Two players finished with a double-double: Jorge Carot, center of Valencia Basket, scored 16 points and grabbed 14 rebounds (30 rating); and Asier Miguel, forward for Real Madrid, with 16 and 13 (24 credits).
