Moving from the preliminary round to the knockout stage of the 2022 EuroBasket, plenty of national teams primed to land on the podium suffered early exits.

The Quarterfinals held Tuesday and Wednesday sent both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic home. Fellow NBA superstar and back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic was knocked out alongside Serbia in the Round of 16.

Host Germany against new-look Spain and experienced France looking to finish the Cinderella story of Poland shape the Semifinals. The tournament continues Friday and concludes Sunday with the medal games.

Eurohoops picked out five players bidding farewell in the Quarterfinals, more or less in a disappointing fashion.
