TOKYO 2020 – Third defeat for the French against China

Third defeat in four matches for the Blue. After their setback against Japan earlier this Sunday, the French women’s 3×3 basketball team lost again, for the third time in four matches, against China (20-13), in the group stage of the Olympic tournament, Sunday at the Aomi Urban Sports Park in Tokyo.

The Bleues had started the game very well: solid defensively, they got their hands on the start of the match thanks in particular to the two long-distance baskets from Mamignan Touré and Marie-Eve Paget, to lead 10-6. But the machine then stalled, with success that fled in the face of much more consistent Chinese. Overtaken, in total failure on long shots, the French cashed a terrible 11-2, from which they could not recover.

Second defeat in three matches for the French 3×3, beaten by Japan


After the defeat conceded against Japan, the record, one victory and three defeats, is disappointing for those who are among the favorites of this Olympic tournament. They can still finish between 3rd and 6th place, synonymous with qualifying play-offs for the last four. They should get good results against Mongolia and Russia on Monday and then Romania on Tuesday.
