Serbia guard Bogdan Bogdanovic finished the 2019 World Cup with some phenomenal stats, including the number of 3-pointers he made in the tournament.

In fact, Bogdanovic hit more 3-pointers by his own than seven national teams that participated in the World Cup.

Thanks also to the 7/12 3-pointers he scored in the win over Czech Republic, Bogdanovic finished with 35 3-pointers made out of 66 attempts in 28.0 minutes over eight matches. This is more than the 3-point sum with which the following national teams finished the tournament: Dominican Republic (33 in five games), Jordan (32 in five games), Senegal (30 in five games), Japan (27 in five games), China (27 in five games), Puerto Rico (25 in five games) and Lithuania (tournament-low 23 in five games).

The Sacramento Kings guard also tied the 35 3-pointers Angola made in five games.

Overall, Bogdanovic averaged 22.9 points, 4.4 assists, and 4.1 rebounds.
