But Spain then went on a 23-7 tear, with Tanja Perez's three-pointer giving them a 40-22 advantage.

The only continued to pull clear, with Leonor Rodriguez following a lay-up with a three-pointer to make it 55-31 early in the fourth quarter, the start of an 18-4 run to close the game as Spain once again showed no mercy.

Spain have now held their opponents to an average of just 35.3 points per game in six contests.

Rodriguez led Spain with 16 points while Laura Arroyo had 11 and Amaya Gastaminza added 10.

Elenga's eight points was the highest tally of any France player.
