Nevertheless, Slovenia wasn’t about to simply pass off the opportunity to get a step closer to a medal. Thanks to a great 3pt performance and a cool head in the final two minutes, they are meeting Spain.

The aggressive approach on both sides made it nearly impossible to simply pick a favorite. Undoubtedly one of the best Eurobasket matches so far.

As the eight-finals have come to a close, here is an overview of the entire round results, and the schedules for the upcoming quarterfinal matches, that await on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Today marked the end of the last group stage competition day. Spain has barely won over Germany,  in a match where the host had a chance to get to extra time, using free throws. Sadly for the home fans, Dennis Schröder missed the third throw, allowing Spain to win by a point (77-76). In the B group, Serbia took the first spot, by a fifth win on the Championship, over Italy.
