Luka Doncic had a huge run with Slovenia in the Olympic Qualifying tournament in Kaunas as he led his team over Lithuania to seal the ticket for the Tokyo Olympics.
After the game, Doncic reflected on Slovenia making the Olympics for the first time in the history of the team. The Mavericks’ superstar finished with 31 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists.
“I’m speechless. We didn’t have much time to prepare [for the final]. We have an amazing team, the chemistry is incredible and everybody plays their heart out,” Doncic said in his opening statement.
The Slovenian wonderkid was named the MVP of the Kaunas tournament, leading Slovenia to four wins to secure its spot in the Olympics.
“I don’t care about the MVP. We’re going to the Olympics. Every kid in Slovenia dreams of being in the Olympics, I did too. We deserve to be here. We [as a team] are making history. Not me. That was our goal. We will go from here.”
