A day after destroying poor Lebanon by 61 points, Slovenia beat Venezuela 88-61 in the Alpos Cup in the Slovene city of Maribor. Bostjan Nachbar scored 13, the only one of the team's five NBA players to reach double figures. Slovenia plays again Sunday against Canada. The team's four other NBA players are Primoz Brezec, Ben Udrih, Rasho Nesterovic and Uros Slokar. USA Today describes Nachbar as "one of the players Lawrence Frank refers to when he says the Nets must improve from within."
