Greece crash out of FIBA World Cup despite win (84-77) against Czech team
The Greek national basketball team crashed out of the 2019 FIBA World Cup after it failed to cover the required 12-point needed despite defeating the Czech team (84-77).
In the fourth quarter, Greece had managed to cover the 12 points it needed but was unable to maintain the difference.
A dubious offensive fouled called on Giannis Antetokounmpo, his fifth, was a serious blow to any slim chances the Greeks had.
