Croatia has a chance to reach the Paris Olympics in basketball despite its defeat against New Zealand

Croatia advanced in its attempt to secure one of the last tickets to the basketball tournament of the Paris Olympicsbut not with the impetus I expected.

New Zealand beat Croatia 90-86 on Wednesday in the Olympic qualifying tournament in Piraeus, Greece. Corey Webster had 21 points and Shea Ili added 18, including a go-ahead layup in the final minute to give New Zealand a comeback.

“I think it was a gutsy win,” said New Zealand captain Reuben Te Rangi. “We’re happy, but we’ll move on tomorrow.”

Ivica Zubac had 29 points and 16 rebounds, and Dario Saric added 19 points and eight rebounds for Croatia, which confirmed its place in Saturday’s semifinals by four points. But the loss left the tournament’s most dangerous player alive.
