France Past Georgia

France beat Georgia 65-58 to secure third place in Group E of the qualifying round and guarantee that they will finish in the top eight.

Leo Westermann had 13 points and eight rebounds as Tahar Assed Liegeon’s men were in control for the better part of the game and, even though they gave up a double-digit lead late in the game, Georgia’s inexperience proved costly as France edged them out.

Spain Still Perfect

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.
