A ‘cheating’ cross against a very competitive team and on a bad shooting day condemned Spain to fight for ninth place.

And they are doing it very professionally. Against Slovenia, they found themselves with a difficult game and a highly motivated ‘known’ Urban Klavzar, who put his team 11 points up (25-14) at the beginning of the second quarter. But Spain was gradually cutting the advantage until equalizing the game in the third quarter (43-43).

There began a match with minimal differences and decided by details. At the end of the fourth quarter, a spectacular basket by Juan Nuñez made it 63-63 and Klavzar missed the winning shot. And in overtime, a basket by Pablo Tamba and two free throws by Rubén Domínguez sealed the victory. 17 points for Tamba, 13 for Caicedo, 11 for Owen Aquino and 10 for Juan Nuñez, the Spanish players who finished in double figures.
