Spain remains undefeated in preparation ahead of Tokyo’s Olympics and took down the French NT 86-77 in a friendly game in Malaga, Spain on Thursday.

Ricky Rubio paced Sergio Scariolo’s selection with 16 points, 4 assists, Sergio Rodriguez posted 14 points while Rudy Fernandez and Alberto Abalde had 11 points each.

Despite the victory, Spain saw Juancho Hernangómez leaving the court in the first half due to shoulder issues and his condition is expected to be evaluated soon.

Evan Fournier led the French selection with a 20-point performance, followed by Nando De Colo who posted 17 points and 7 rebounds.

The two teams will face each other again on Saturday (10/7), this time in Paris, France.
