Bogdanovic
Serbia switched gears in the third quarter of their Wednesday clash with Angola to pick up a comfy 83-60 win and seal their passage to the semi-finals as winners of Group A at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Belgrade.
Turning Point: Stefan Markovic (196-G-88) knocked down two threes within the space of 70 seconds at the start of the second half to propel the hosts to a 55-41 lead with 8:36 remaining in the period. Angola had no energy left to reduce the deficit back to single digits and Serbia's advantage only stretched further the rest of the way.
Stats Don't Lie: Serbia searched patiently for the open man on the weak side and dished out a collective 24 assists. Their passing enabled them to hit nine of their first 15 three-point attempts and they finished with a still excellent 10-of-22 from downtown.
Game Hero: Bogdan Bogdanovic (198-G/F-92) came out with laser-sharp focus and scored 12 points on -for- three-point shooting, dished out eight assists and brought down four boards for good measure.
The Bottom Line: Serbia take first place in Group A and will go up against the winner of the late Wednesday clash between Japan and Czech Republic in one of Friday's semi-finals. Angola's bid to reach Rio 2016 ends here as they lost both their games in Belgrade.
