France are Europe's U16 Champions

France’s U16 Boys made history today in Amaliada, Greece, becoming the first side ever from their country to win a European Championship at this age level. It is the 18th time that this competition has been played and in 17 attempts, France had failed to win a medal.

Les Bleus had come close in recent history, finishing in 4th place in 1997 and 1999, and 5th in 2001 and 2003.

France may have won gold in Amaliada, but Russia scooped the individual awards as 2 of their players were selected to the Tournament All-Star Five.

Vitaly Kuznetsov was chosen to the All-Star Five and selected as Tournament MVP. The 194 cm forward averaged 18.1 ppg in Amaliada, including a championship-high 35 points against Lithuania in the semi-finals. He was especially lethal from long range and made 48.8% of his 3-point attempts (21/43).
