More than a year after their loss to the Japanese, in the semi-finals of the Tokyo Olympics, Les Bleues got their revenge on Monday, September 26. For the fourth group match of the Women’s Basketball World Cup, the French ensured their qualification for the quarter-finals by winning against Japan (67-53), thanks in particular to their solidity in defense.

After a slump in the second quarter, where they took a 14-0, the French recovered before taking off, thanks to the performance of Migna Touré (13 pts), Gabby Williams (16 pts), Iliana Rupert (15 pts, 12 rebounds) and Marine Fauthoux (10 pts, 6 assists). There is now one pool game left for France, against Serbia on Tuesday. He will be at stake in one of the first two places, which will allow him to avoid the United States on Thursday in the quarter-finals.
