World Cup update: Doncic, Powell set for quarterfinal match

If Luka Donu010diu0107 and the Slovenians needed a wake-up call at the FIBA World Cup, they got it on Sunday morning.

After bolting out to an early 14-point lead, Slovenia fell asleep and was run over by a potent German squad 100-71 at Okinawa in the final group phase game for both teams.

Slovenia and Germany already had punched their tickets to the quarterfinals by going undefeated in their first four group phase games, but Slovenia’s perfect run came to an abrupt end.

Slovenia will meet Canada in a match involving two Mavericks with Luka going against Dwight Powell and a Canadian team packed full of NBA players.
