GAME REPORT


High-Scoring Croatia Down Turkey

Croatia Forward Mario Hezonja was again the leading scorer for his team with 24 points

Croatia became the first team to secure two victories at the U16 European Championship Men, beating Turkey in Pardubice to take control of Group D.

Croatia received another strong effort from Mario Hezonja, who finished with 24 points. Ivan Jukic added 16 points and Domagoj Bosnjak contributed a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Cedi Osman scored a game-high 33 points for the Turkish team but it wasn't enough to prevent a Croatian victory.

Croatia entered the fourth quarter with just a three-point lead, but then they blew the game open with a 12-0 run and never looked in danger of conceding that advantage.

The teams traded baskets through an entertaining first half, and Croatia entered the break with a 47-41 advantage.

Turkey trailed by 11 points at times in the third quarter but mounted a comeback and reduced the deficit to three.

Osman scored 15 points in the final quarter, but Croatia continued the defence of their title in impressive fashion.
