FIBA

Villanovan is the squad's captain and second-leading scorer.

Croatia continues its 5-1 run through the FIBA U19 World Championships currently being held in Prague following a convincing win over Iran on Wednesday. Led by Dario Saric, who would have been an NBA Lottery Pick if he remained in the 2013 Draft, Croatia now finds themselves in the quarterfinals.

As the team prepares for their game against Serbia on Friday, the squad's captain and second leading scorer is rising Villanova sophomore, Mislav Brzoja.

Through the Preliminary Round and "Round of 8" games, the 6'5" shooting guard is averaging 14.8 points per game while grabbing 8 boards per contest. He is accomplishing that on nearly 50% shooting as he's gone 30-61 from the field including 12-28 from 3-Point distance (42.9%).

Brzoja and Croatia take on Serbia at 12p (ET) on Friday in the Quarterfinals.
