LJUBLJANA, Slovenia -- Slovenia powered into the quarterfinals of the European basketball championship with a 73-65 victory over Greece on Sunday, with point guard Goran Dragic scoring 28 points. Slovenia joined Croatia in the last eight and its victory allowed Italy to advance as well, despite its 76-68 loss to Croatia. The host team nearly blew a huge lead but held on to send the home fans into a frenzy in Stozice Arena. Spain, the defending two-time champion, cruised past Finland 82-56. Spain, with two wins and two losses, plays Italy (2-2) in its final second-round game. Greece and Finland also still have a chance of making it to the last eight. Greece (1-3) plays Croatia (3-1), and Finland (1-3) goes against Slovenia (3-1). From the other group, France, Lithuania and Serbia have already advanced. Dragic scored his teams first 11 points, before his younger brother Dragan scored the next four to set the tone for the game. Goran Dragics impact was huge, at both ends of the court. After making one free throw, the NBA player grabbed an offensive rebound and dished out an assist for Nebojsa Joskimovics 3-pointer that put Slovenia up by 20 early in the third quarter. The lead quickly grew to 26, and Greece suffered even worse when forward Kosta Papanikolaou limped off with an ankle injury midway through the quarter. "Its a very bad ankle sprain," Greece coach Andrea Trinchieri said. "We came back with desire and passion in the second half but we missed the chance to close within three and that was that." While Goran Dragic had a rest in the fourth, Slovenias lead melted to six by the time he returned. He stole the ball and put in a layup -- his only points in the fourth quarter -- to make it 70-62. Greece missed three straight 3-point attempts and Jaka Lakovic made three of four free throws to keep Slovenia ahead. Goran Dragic also had five rebounds and four assists, while his brother added 11 points. "We had a huge lead but it wasnt over," Goran Dragic said. "We knew they dont like to play fast, especially in the first two quarters. The key was our rebounding." Slovenia coach Boza Maljkovic said his teams 21 offensive rebounds made the difference. "We played well for 26 minutes, then we went down and I didnt like it." Vassilis Spanoulis led Greece with 21 and eight rebounds. Croatia trailed by 13 early and was down by five at halftime but outscored Italy 26-9 -- including a 10-0 run -- in the third to go ahead for good, holding off a late rally. Shooting guards Bojan Bogdanovic and Krunoslav Simon had eight points each during the run and point guard Roko Leno Ukic scored six straight to spark Croatias comeback. Bogdanovic finished with 18 points, while Luigi Datome had 24 for Italy. "I dont think we need to lose any confidence now. We lost the games against Slovenia and Croatia but we were not dominated and we dont need to fear Spain," Datome said. "The crucial moment was the third quarter, they went 10-0 and turned the game around." Italy cut the deficit to four with 2:44 left to play but Marco Cusin missed a dunk, Bogdanovic grabbed the rebound and Simon hit a jumper before sinking two free throws to end Italys hopes. Croatia got 21 points from its bench, compared to seven for Italy. Jose Calderon led Spain with 23 points, while Petteri Koponen had 17 for Finland. Spain had 15 more rebounds and 10 more assists than Finland, which dropped to 1-3. Wholesale Shoes China .

Cody Eakin, Stephane Robidas and Ryan Garbutt produced a three-goal flurry in a 53-second span of the third period, and the Stars beat the Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks 6-3 on Tuesday night for their first home win in more than month. "We were just still talking on the bench about, OK, its a tie game. Lets get this thing (under control), stay the course, do that, and next its 3-2," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It just went boom, boom. They got the goal, and the crowd got into it, and then the rest is history." After giving up a goal to Nick Bonino in the final seconds of the second period that put the Ducks ahead 2-1, Dallas wiped out that deficit with the fastest three-goal stretch in the NHL since January 2012. "Youre thinking that we fought hard to tie it up and want to go into the third period and try to play a 20-minute period of the win, and now were going to chase the game again as soon as we come out," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "But we were able to turn it, I can tell you a nice story now. Otherwise, we might have blamed the game on that late goal." Eakins sixth goal of the season tied it 2-2 with 14:35 left. Only 25 seconds later, Robidas was between the circles when he scored his fourth of the season. Garbutt then gathered a loose puck and scored with a backhanded swipe with 13:42 left to make it 4-2. He didnt realize how quickly the trio of goals had come. "But it was pretty cool," said Garbutt, who also had two assists. Fans in the building were suddenly in a frenzy as Boudreau finally called timeout. "We might have had to have a little bottle of NoDoz after the first period, but we woke them up in the third," Ruff said. Roussel was in the crease when he netted his second goal with just under 8 minutes left. Hiller quickly argued with the referee to no avail, trying to get an interference call. Dan Ellis stopped 28 shots, winning for only the second time in seven games. Dallas had been 0-2-2 at home since a 5-1 victory over Calgary on Oct. 24. Emerson Etem, Nick Bonino and Dustin& Penner scored for the Ducks, who are 10-4-3 in their last 17 games.ddddddddddddPenners tally was a power-play goal with 6 1/2 minutes left. "It does happen quickly," Ducks centre Andrew Cogliano said. "When momentum turns and it starts going the other way, its really hard to stop it." The Stars played the first of three straight home games. Next is Friday night against the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks, who have an NHL-best 38 points -- one more than Anaheim and St. Louis. This was the second of three meetings this season for the former Pacific Division rivals who used to play six times a season. It was the only trip to Dallas for the Ducks, who won 6-3 at home on Oct. 20 and will host the Stars again on Feb. 1. Hiller, who faced 32 shots, gave up three goals on 12 shots against the Stars in the previous matchup before he was pulled from the game. Boninos seventh of the season came with 36 seconds left in the second period. He took a pass from Cogliano, and the puck went off his skate before he used his stick to score from the right side of the net for a 2-1 lead. Etem scored from in front 6:06 into the game to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead. Roussel tied it when the puck caromed in off his skate with 6:47 left in the second period. Officials reviewed the goal before ruling that it wasnt kicked into the net to the left of Hiller after a pass from Vernon Fiddler. "That was a team win," Roussel said. "Were very excited about that win because everybody was involved."
