This time, the Blues did not tremble. After taking out Turkey (86-87) then Italy (93-85) in overtime, the French team crushed Poland (95-54) on Friday September 16 to clinch their place in the Eurobasket final. The Tricolores will never have doubted, against the Poles visibly dulled by their exploit in the quarter-finals against Slovenia of superstar Luka Doncic (90-87). They can especially congratulate themselves on their almost perfect performance, especially defensively.
Vincent Collet’s players have been exceptional in protecting their circle, from first curtains Andrew Albicy or Terry Tarpey III to lightning rod Rudy Gobert. The Blues have thus shown very good collective qualities in attack, to avoid a new thrill in the third quarter. It was even in this period that France validated its success to lead by 28 points after 30 minutes. Special mention to Guerschon Yabusele, author of a festival with 22 points in 23 minutes. The Blues now assured of a new medal, the first in a Euro since 2015, now await Germany or Spain in the final. Relive this great victory.
