Tobey's experience in Slovenia helps Slovenia reach the Olympic semifinals

After a convincing win over Germany in quarterfinals, the Slovenian men's basketball team is now on the way to the semifinal round at the Tokyo Olympics.

Tobey's experience in Slovenia helps Slovenia reach the Olympic semifinals

They moved up to 4-0, winning their games an average of 21.3 points each. Mike Tobey, a former Virginia big man, continued his impressive streak with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Tobey has scored a double-double in three games of Slovenia, his teammate Luka Docic being the other player to achieve the feat.

Tobey was 5-for-6 in the field against Germany, and went 2-for-3 from three.

Slovenia will now face France in the semi-finals, following the victory. The USA will face Australia in the second semi at 12:15am on the same day.

Slovenia could be the most popular team at the Olympics right now. They are playing well as a team, and they are dominating their competitors. They are No. They are ranked 16 in the FIBA World Rankings, but it is clear that they have a chance at winning the gold.

After the victory over Germany, Doncic's coach Aleksander Sekulic stated that Doncic was not here to show off. He's here to support the team. He came to the court to have fun, and to have fun with the other guys. We are here to make use of him as much as we can, to use his magic.

Tobey has greatly benefited from playing alongside the 22 year-old Slovenian. They work well together, especially in their pick-and-pop offense. Doncic, who plays for the Dallas Mavericks during NBA season, was credited with that connection.

"He's one of the best players in the world," Tobey told Eurohoops.net back in July. "Me?" "Me? I tried to do what they asked me in every offensive situation. Roll, go through all the pop and try to play along. Take a look at what he is doing. He deserves all the credit for the amazing chemistry we created right away.

It's amazing to see what Tobey has been able do, considering that Tobey wasn't allowed to join the Slovenian team until June. This was right before the squad qualified for Tokyo. Tobey has averaged a double-double in four games with 11.5 points per game and 12.5 rebounds.

"A couple of months ago, I didn't even know where Slovenia was," Tobey told the media following one of Slovenia's wins. "This is an unrealized dream that I have come true and I don’t want to get up."
