BC, Riga, 22.02.2019.Print version

The Latvian national men's basketball team tonight will host Spain in an important FIBA World Cup qualifier, reported LETA/BNS. 

The match will be played at Arena Riga and will tip-off at 7:30 p.m. The sold-out match will also be broadcast live on TV6.

In the other group I matches tonight, Turkey will host Slovenia, while Ukraine will host Montenegro.

Spain and Turkey have already booked their places to the FIBA World Cup in China later this year, while Latvia, Montenegro and Ukraine are still in the hunt.

If Latvia defeats Spain this evening, it will need to beat Montenegro in its final match by just a point to qualify, but if Latvia loses and Montenegro defeats Ukraine tonight, Latvia will need to defeat Montenegro by ten points to qualify.
