Gortnar played only 20 minutes before her injury, but still led Slovenia in rebounds (5) and was second in scoring (13).
Santa Okockyte and Paulina Zaveckaite scored 17 points each with 50 percents two-point field goal shooting each.
Lithuania had a better start, but lost their rhythm when Slovenia began to use full-court pressing and converted a few steals into easy baskets to gain a slim 20-19 lead.
Both teams traded baskets and turnovers and couldn't gain any significant advantage until Baric switched gear and rose to to the purpose. She scored a few baskets in transition and hit a
few three pointers including a halftime buzzer beater that gave Slovenia a 48-38 lead.
Gortnar's injury made rather than broke Slovenia. Lithuania reduced the deficit to 52-55 after Kriste Druskyte triple, but then Baric responded with an impressive run of her own, scoring ten points in five minutes to get her team into the final quarter with a 61-69 advantage.
With 6:22 to go in the fourth quarter Eva Rupnik was left open beyond the arc and she buried the triple to push Slovenia ahead by 16 points (63-79). Lithuania tried to respond with 10 unanswered points behind two three-pointer by Druskyte and Laura Svaryte but Rupnik again fired from downtown to seal the historic win for Slovenia.
