Croatian U20 Basketball Team Is Playing Finals
After a great success of our football team...
It has come time for a little bit of basketball.
Our U20 team qualified for the finals of EuroBasket.
And the interesting thing is that they are playing Isreal, lol.
We're going into the last quarter.
And we're losing 60-50.
We still have 10 minutes.
But, Isrealians have been looking really great so far.
They wrecked both France and Germany.
Closest was Lithuania.
We weren't so dominant.
But, no one came close to us, too.
Closest was 8 points.
Our future looks great in this sport, too.
We're champions in waterpolo, 2nd best in football, tennis, and one of the in handball.
We're actually not really far from the top in basketball.
We have few really great talents that are making their impact in NBA.
Some of them are Saric, who should've been named the ROTY last year.
He's been doing great, and he's getting better and better with each year.
Hezonja signed with NY Knicks this season.
He's a great athlete, and a shooter.
He just needs to work on his "head".
And probably the biggest talent is Bender.
He's like 220cm tall, can shoot, and has a talent to be elite defender.
Not many players like him exist in NBA.
Hopefully, we'll get a medal in that sport, too.
