Spain remain on course to successfully defend their title after convincingly beating France 65-46 to keep their unbeaten record intact.
A 13-2 run in the second quarter proved the turning point of the game as it helped Jota Cuspinera’s men take a 38-22 lead at the half and they were rarely threatened after that.
The 2004 champions were within 12, 40-28, when Remi Dibo made a lay up two minutes after the break, but they shot a dreadful 19 percent from the field (12 of 62 overall, including five of 29 from two-point range) for the game and were only respectable at the free-throw line where they made 15 of their 19 attempts.
Alberto Jodar led the way for Spain with 21 points, eight rebounds and three assists and Josep Franch added 10 points.
Elio Sadiku was the only player in double figures for Tahar Assed Liegeon with 12 points.
