One of the young stars in Poland was 1.90m point guard Antoine Diot who spelled Parker during the early rounds and went on to play significant minutes as the tournament progressed. After his team's Quarter-Final loss to eventual champions Spain, Diot averaged 27 minutes per contest and averaged 15.5 points.
