Bogdanovic scores eight in double overtime to lead Croatia over Greece

Crobasket/T.Vrandecic

Bojan Bogdanovic has a reputation as a big game player.  He proved it again Monday as Croatia beat Greece in double overtime to win its seventh straight in FIBA Eurobasket. Croatia is now the hottest team in Eurobasket and Bogdanovic the leading scorer in the second round.

Bogdanovic struggled to find open looks and only had nine points during regulation, but drilled a triple 25 seconds from the end of first overtime to tie the scores at 77, and collected eight crucial points during the second overtime. Croatia next plays Urkaine, coached by Mike Fratello. Bogdanovic beat Ukraine in last year's Eurobasket Qualifying Tournament with a buzzer beating three-pointer.

The 6'8" swingman finished with 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, 2-of-7 from deep. He also grabbed four rebounds

Greece went up, 77-74 cushion but Bogdanovic, described by a FIBA as "cool as ice", received a long pass in the corner and hit a three pointer to tie the scores at 77.The shot was the spark the Croatian winger needed to spring into action in second overtime, as he scored six points within the first 105 seconds.
