Greece dropped to 0-3 despite 11 points and 10 rebounds from Emmanouil Tselentakis and will now play to stay in the Division.

Slovenia led 10-5 before the Greeks scored six straight points to take their first lead 11-10. The game was deadlocked 17-17 after one quarter.

The second period was tight throughout with Greece leading by three points at 27-24 but Slovenia up 34-33 at halftime.
