Bucks first round selection Giannis Antetokounmpo had quite the impressive outing Monday in the second round of the U20 FIBA European Championships. Giannis led his Greece squad to a 77-68 win over Croatia with an incredible stat-line of: 12 points (3/8 from the field, 1/4 from three, 5/6 free throws), 15 rebounds, one assist and six (!!!) blocked shots. Giannis played a team high 34 minutes coming off the bench.
Yeah, the kid’s good.
Greece is now 5-0 in the tournament and has clinched a spot in the quarterfinals. Bucks Head Coach Larry Drew was in the building to watch Giannis lead his team to victory. Greece’s next match-up is tomorrow against Montenegro.
