Slovenia fought back from a 23-point second quarter deficit with Dallas Mavericks star Luka Dončić leading the resurgence as they came within one point of turning the tables in the final quarter. 

Poland neverthless held firm as they reached the last four for the first time since 1971, thanks in no small part to a superb showing from Mateusz Ponitka who claimed 26 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists in the upset.

France meanwhile required overtime to see off Italy 93-85 in their quarter-final.

Thomas Heurtel chalked up up 20 points while Rudy Gobert registered 19 and 14 rebounds as the French mounted a fourth-quarter rally for the second game in a row to claim their place in the last four of the tournament.
