They will be the hosts of the next EuroBasket and that is synonymous with the fact that the Slovenian team is putting together the pieces to create a team that is as competitive as possible for the summer of 2023. A goal that is not far from what La Familia sets out to do.
Thus, against the 12 from Spain there will be a rival with players with a long history in European clubs such as Eva Lisec, Teja Oblak or Shante Evans. Although, the experience of these players is combined with a lot of youth and with the illusion of being a National Team that is taking the first steps of its history on the fields of the old continent. They have only participated in the last three editions of a EuroBasket being the tenth place in the tournaments of 19 and 21 the best position they have achieved.
Spain-Slovenia is an unusual duel, just has been held once and it was in 1993 at the Mediterranean Games. The match ended with a Spanish victory by 67 to 60.
The national team will seek against Slovenia the third consecutive win of the summer and the fifth in the Miguel Méndez era, but above all, a different habitat will be tested when measuring a little-known rival on a neutral court.
