Once one of the most intriguing youngsters of his generation in all of Europe, Rupnik made his official debut for the Slovenian national team in Lithuania four years ago. Back then he was the youngest player at EuroBasket 2011, and huge expectations were placed on him before the true beginning of development of his senior career. However, as seasons unfolded this smart and quick point guard with good shooting abilities, could not quite manage to make a step forward in his career at Slovenian powerhouse Union Olimpija and receive a key role on the team. Most of all, the key reason is believed to be a lack of physical strength, an aspect in which he has made a huge improvement during the past year. Now he has received another opportunity to prove himself on the big stage and perhaps 2015 could turn out to be the breakthrough year for him.
