Brazil had three wins by 20+ points until the final game, where the German national team got the 75-64 triumph and the ticket to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo after a real dogfight. Moritz Wagner with 28 points on 9/12 FG led the charge for the winning side, getting help from Robin Benzing (13 p.), Maodo Lo (10 p.), and Johannes Voightmann (8 p. 11 r.). The Germans did it without having available Lakers guard Dennis Schroder for the qualifiers.
Robin Benzing Rumors
As confirmed by his agent Marko Pesic, Robin Benzing won’t play in NBA next season at “99.99%”. “Next season Robin Benzing will play in Europe” said the son of coach Svetislav Pesic. “Now he is not interested in playing in America. He will be at the draft. If he will be selected is ok, but he is going to stay in Europe at least another season. I like to compare him with Tibor Pleiss. He needs three full season in Europe before trying to go overseas” added Pesic.
