Awesome first day, highlighted by a German team of 'nobodies' stunning France 80-74, making big shot after big shot down the stretch.
Finland upset Turkey 61-55, Spain hammered Croatia 68-40, a young Serbian team beat Lithuania 63-56 and the home team Slovenia only just squeaked past the Czech Republic 62-60.
Perhaps the most interesting result was between Italy, who have struggled in their lead up games, and Russia, who had to replace their coach only weeks before the tournament and are missing some big names.
Italy led by double figures for much of the way before Russia charged home to get within four but Italy won 76-69. A long time since Italy has claimed a big scalp, although it remains to be seen how good this Russian team is.
