Latvia out of Eurobasket after epic battle

Take note – story published 6 years ago

Latvia's participation at the Eurobasket 2017 basketball championships came to an end September 12, but not before an epic and nail-biting clash with Slovenia.

A game of the highest quality saw the classy Slovenians book a place in the semi-finals by 103 points to 97. The loss temporarily broke Latvian hearts but soon afterwards social media was flooded with messages praising the team of 2017 for its efforts.

Indeed the basketball squad has performed outstandingly well and the Slovenia game would have graced any championship final -- it's doubtful there will be a better match-up in the rest of the tournament.

The team is due to return to Latvia today, where it will be accorded a heroes' welcome.
