France had few problems in their final Group A encounter in Bursa on Wednesday night against Germany.
After a close first half, France stepped up a gear in the third period and the Germans found it impossible to keep up.
There were no suprises in the opening contest following the rest day in Bursa on Tuesday as Czech Republic cruised to an easy win against Germany, 76-50.
The Germans were always going to have their work cut out against a Czech Republic side whose goal is to make the final, a feat they achieved in 2003 when they won the silver.
National team coach Olaf Stolz has called on the German Basketball Federation and the German Women's Basketball League to put their heads together and try and find the reasons behind his side's disappointing showing at the EuroBasket Women.
Germany have lost their first three group games and need a miracle to qualify for the quarter-finals, but Stolz says he can have no complaints with the way his side have performed given their lack of international experience.
After 2 losses, Poland finally opened their 2005 EuroBasket Women account with a win against Germany on Sunday in Bursa.
Poland, who grabbed the last competition spot through the additional qualifying tournament, looked tired in their first 2 contests which resulted in losses to Latvia and Czech Republic.
