Bojan Bogdanovic was named first team All-Eurobasket Sunday. At 24, Bogdanovic is the youngest member of the first team. The four others all played in the NBA last season: Tony Parker, Marc Gasol, Goran Dragic and Linas Kleiza.

FIBA Europe said of Bogdanovic:

Bogdanovic finished as the tournament's second-top scorer behind Parker as he averaged 17.4 points-per-game, also adding 4.1 rebounds on average.

The mercurial displays of the 24-year-old winger inspired Croatia's eight-game winning streak that saw them reach the semi-finals of EuroBasket 2013 and earned him the small forward spot on the All Tournament Team.

Bogdanovic was the second highest scorer overall in the tournament, averaging 17.4 points per game, second only to Parker. Mirza Teletovic was second highest scorer in the first round.
