July 18, 2016

Providence College rising sophomore women’s basketball player Jovana ‘Yoyo’ Nogic (Lisbon, Portugal) represented her native Serbia at the 2016 FIBA U20 Women’s European Championship in Matosinhos, Portugal on July 9-17. Nogic helped guide her squad to the semifinals of the championship and went on to finish fourth out of 16 teams.

Nogic played all seven games for Serbia and averaged 12.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. She finished tied for 17th among all players in the championship in scoring average (12.4 ppg) and 14th in three-point field-goal percentage (.366, 15-41).

She posted double figures in the scoring column in six games, including a team-high 21 points in the semifinals against Italy on July 16. During that game, she shot 41.2-percent (7-17) from the field, 50-percent from three-point territory (4-8) and hit all three of her attempts from the foul line. She also grabbed a tournament-best six boards against the Italians and added two assists and one steal.

In the third-place game against Russia on July 17, she recorded a tournament-best four steals. She also dished two-or-more assists in four of seven games during the championship, including a high of three vs. Portugal in the Round of 16 on July 13.

Nogic has a wealth of experience in FIBA-sponsored events, having also played for Serbia in the 2015 U18 European Championship, 2015 U19 Women’s World Championship, 2014 U18 European Championship and 2013 U16 European Championship.

During Nogic’s rookie season with the Providence College women’s basketball team, Nogic played 29 games and averaged 9.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. She led the Friars in three-point field-goal percentage (.406, 52-128) and free-throw percentage (.862, 25-29). Her 52 three point field goals during the year marked the most by a freshman by a Friar since Julie Wheeler ‘98 hit 82 triples as a rookie during the 1994-95 campaign.
