Bogdanovic Breaks Out With 31

B. Petrinovic - Crobasket

After being reinstated following a three-game suspension, Bojan Bogdanovic played what may have been the single most impressive game any Euro-Net has had this "friendly" season. Bogdanovic scored 31 of Croatia's 70 points in a 78-70 loss to Italy in Trieste, Italy. The 6'8" swingman shot 9-for-13, including 2-for-5 from deep.

"We allowed Bogdanovic to score in every way," said Italy's coach, Simone Pianigiani. Pianigiani will be coaching Bogdanovic at Fenerbahce in the Turkish League next fall.

Bogdanovic had been kicked off the Croatian national team 10 days ago after he was seen returning to the team hotel at 5 a.m. after a long night of partying. He was reinstated Tuesday after penning a written apology in which he admitted he had embarrassed his team and the Croatian basketball federation.

Five Net players and draft picks played in international competition Wednesday: Deron Williams for Team USA, Mirza Teletovic for Bosnia, Toko Shengelia for Georgia, Ilkan Karaman for Turkey and Bogdanovic for Croatia.
