3. Basketball – World Qualifiers 2023: The Blues worry before the Euro

Five days before the Eurobasket, the Blues did not reassure. Vincent Collet’s men were beaten by Bosnia (96-90) after two extra times for their last match before the competition. Evan Fournier’s teammates got off to a very bad start, first trailing by 18 points, then conceding a 20-0 at the end of the 3rd quarter when they had recovered at halftime. This defeat does not compromise the qualification for the World Cup.
