GAME REPORT


France Claim Tight Win Against Serbia

7. Damien Inglis (France)
Damien Inglis took France to their second consecutive victory with 20 points, nine boards and eight assists

A near triple-double from Damien Inglis lifted France to a dramatic 65-62 win over Serbia at the U18 European Championship on Friday.

Back-to-back three-point baskets at the start to the third term levelled the game for France before Inglis and point guard Etienne Ory helped the French claim their second straight Group A win.

A driving layup from forward Axel Bouteille with 1:45 remaining gave France a three-point advantage and while Serbia would get three more looks at a game-tying attempt, the desperate defence displayed by the French assured them the win.

France's athletic and fast-paced transition game ran rings around a three-point dependent Serbian offence, scoring 16 fast-break points to Serbia's three.

Inglis finished with 20 points, nine rebounds and eight assists while Ory hit three of his four three-point attempts to finish with 17 points.

Rade Zagorac led Serbia with 13 points, doing most of his damage in the first half.
