France vs. Philippines
In the ongoing 2017 FIBA 3×3 World Cup in Nantes, the host team France defeated the Philippines with the final score of 22-11 on Monday. With the win, France now is the leader of Pool B with 2-0 record in this prestigious basketball tournament.
French center Charles Bronchard dominated the game and got better support from point guard Dominique Gentil. Both players are aggressive from the start of the game and controlled the momentum by building a comfortable 16-8 lead.
The Philippines need to win their next game against Slovenia on Wednesday if they want to improve their 1-1 record and keep their chances alive for the next round. Kobe Paras is the leading scorer of the team but they defended him well. His teammates need to step up if they want to win and advance to the quarterfinal rounds.
