Croatia delivered a ‘friendly” upset against France in front of the latter’s home crowd in Paris.

With Bojan Bogdanovic scoring 21 points and Dario Saric (also MVP) producing a double/double of 16 points and 10 rebounds along with 4 assists leading their team to a 92 – 87 victory over “Les Bleus”.

Evan Fournier was hot from France with a 24 points (4/5 from the perimeter) senior NT career-high but not enough to counter his opponents’ superior offense. Nando De Colo added 15 points and five assists.

Dragan Bender was another player with key input for Croatia, finishing with 11 points and hitting 3/3 from beyond the arc.
