Unlike Great Britain, the Slovak Republic will have surprised those who made pre-tournament predictions about Coach Kovacik's unfancied side, narrowly losing out to Serbia in the opener thanks to a last second shot before putting that defeat behind them with an unexpected 64-61 win over Russia.
Great Britain's Frans Griffioen, has been impressed with what he has seen of Slovakia so far and believes he knows what their biggest strength is.
"The story comes that they played the whole year as a team together in the top division in Slovakia," said Griffioen when talking about Slovakia's refusal to give in. "They have incredible energy and intensity.
"The only problem is that they don't have good long range shooting, it's more of an inside team."
Great Britain have their own inside threat in the shape of Jess Hurd. Hampered by foul trouble in the first game against Russia, Hurd was able to move freely against Serbia, eventually finishing with a game-high 25 points and nine rebounds.
Both teams have injury worries heading into the final Group D game, with Great Britain's Renee Busch not at 100% against Serbia and her status today unclear. Slovakia were without small forward Martina Kissováduring the win over Russia and it is not known if she will play.
Great Britain tip-off against the Slovak Republic at 12:45PM (UK time).
