By Eurohoops team/

France defeated Belgium (90-71) which managed to stay competitive for one half, but after that couldn’t do much.

Thomas Heurtel with 13 points and six assists, Minessota’s Rudy Gobert with 12 points and six rebounds, and New York’s Evan Fournier with 10 points and five rebounds led the charge for the “Bleus” who put on a show for the home crowd in Montpellier.

Belgium trailed by nine at halftime (44-35), however after that things went downhill for them.

Retin Obasohan scored 14 points for the losing side, and Jonathan Tabu added 13 points, however in total, the team shot 34,4% from the floor and couldn’t contain France at all.

The Olympic silver medalists remained unbeaten with four wins in four games as they completed their preparation before the upcoming FIBA World Cup qualifiers and of course Eurobasket 2022.
