In their final tune-up game before tipping off in the FIBA World Cup in Spain on Saturday, Team USA defeated Slovenia by 30 points, 101-71.

Andre Drummond played roughly 7 minutes, all of which came in the fourth quarter when the game was already decided. He finished with 2 points and 2 rebounds, and believe it or not, his only bucket was an alley-oop dunk. It was a highlight alley-oop dunk. In fact, it was the No. 1 highlight from the game.

Zoran Dragic, the brother of Phoenix Suns guard Goran, led Slovenia with 16 points.
