Slovenian outfit Zlatorog slumped to a 78-69 home defeat to BC Amak S.P. to crash out of contention for a place in the EuroChallenge.
After prevailing in the first leg one week ago in Ohrid in the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, Ales Pipan's team returned home to Lasko and went down, ending up with a 148-145 setback on aggregate.
It wasn't that long ago that Ales Pipan was calling the shots as the coach of Slovenia, trying to engineer a run to the Beijing Games via the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
While the Slovenians played well early on, they came unstuck against Puerto Rico and missed out on travelling to China.
