Croatia finished third in Group C. Despite their star-studded squad, Mulaomierovic’s side missed out on Greece and Ukraine. They lost to Greece (85-89). Ukraine managed to beat them with a score of 90-85.
All of the Croatian play is built around players from the NBA – Bojan Bogdanovic, Mario Hezonja, Dario Šarić and Ivica Zubac. Too often, though, those players pull the blanket too heavily. This prevents Croatia from showing a good game.
In the last game against Ukraine, Bojan Bogdanovic scored 27 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists.
Croatia is averaging 17 assists per game in this tournament.
