Slovenia took a huge step towards the second round tonight in LuleƄ as they picked up their second victory in Eurobasket, 73-62, over Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Bosnia gave a good account of themselves throughout, but despite taking a 54-48 lead into the 4th quarter, they could not capitalise.

The game was close througout, but Bosnia built a small lead in the 3rd quarter thanks to some sloppy shooting and turnovers from Slovenia.
