Bogdan Bogdanovic Wins Euroleague Rising Star Trophy

May 7, 2015 12:24 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic of Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul has been named the Euroleague Rising Star Trophy winner for the second season in a row.

The Rising Star Trophy recognizes the best Euroleague player each season who was under the age of 22 on July 1 of the summer before the season started. Having won the award also last season, when he played for Partizan NIS Belgrade, Bogdanovic joins Nikola Mirotic, who did so in 2011 and 2012 with Real Madrid, as the only players to win the Rising Star Trophy twice.

In addition to leading Fenerbahce in games started (25), he was second in minutes (27:50), assists (2.7 apg.) and three-pointers made (46) and third in free-throw shooting (78.2%) and defensive rebounding (2.4 drpg.). He was also among the top three in scoring (10.7 ppg., third), three-pointers made (second), assists (first), steals (0.8 spg., second) and fouls drawn (2.5, third) among all Rising Star Trophy-eligible players this season.

The Phoenix Suns drafted Bogdanovic 27th overall in the 2014 NBA Draft and own his draft rights.

Morris Twins Under Investigation On Alleged Assault

Apr 8, 2015 11:25 AM

Phoenix police say Marcus and Markieff Morris and three others committed felony aggravated assault against a man the 25-year-old twins learned had sent "inappropriate" text messages to their mother.

Police have made no arrests and no charges have been filed. A spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorney's Office confirmed Tuesday afternoon that prosecutors are continuing to review the case submitted by police.

 

The Morris twins have denied assaulting the reported victim, whom they also claim not to know.

The report shows the alleged victim, Erik Hood, told police he had been a mentor to the twins and supported them financially for a time when they were high school students in Philadelphia.

The alleged assault occurred in January at the Nina Mason Pulliam Recreation & Sports Complex near 15th Avenue and Colter Street, where Hood and a woman had been watching a basketball game, records show.

 

During the confrontation, someone punched Hood in the back of the head, and Hood tried to flee.

Police said Kane and another person caught up with Hood outside the door near some picnic tables, where someone held Hood down while others kicked and punched him, records show. Hood says he was attacked by five people, in all.

Investigators reportedly interviewed about two dozen additional witnesses who said they did not see anything or could not identify those involved.
