Victor Wembanyama has a force to be reckoned with on defense to make up for a lackluster offense.

Victor Wembanyama had one of his lowest-scoring games and worst shooting nights this season but produced a career-high six blocks as Boulogne Levallois defeated EuroCup side Paris Basketball 91 – 71 on the road.

Wembanyama struggled, for the most part, offensively to finish with 11 points (his second-lowest match this season after scoring 10 in Round 2) on 4-11 2-pointers and 1-5 triples over 23:13 minutes. He got five rebounds and, ultimately, it was his defensive contribution that helped his team get the away victory.

Many times throughout the game, Wembanyama clashed against fellow French NBA prospect Ismael Kamagate, who finished with eight points plus seven rebounds. Despite the loss, Kamagate produced a major highlight by posterizing the projected No. 1 pick of next year.

Hugo Besson led Boulogne with 19 points plus 11 rebounds while Tremont Waters dropped 17 points.
