The French U20 women’s team stopped in the semi-finals of the Euro

The France U20 women’s team lost by two small points against the Czech Republic in the semi-finals of EuroBasket. They will meet Italy this Saturday at 6 p.m. to try to climb on the third step of the podium.

The France U20 women’s team will not see the EuroBasket final. Jérôme Fournier’s daughters once again lost to the Czech Republic (65-63), the host country which will face Spain in the final.

He will have totally lacked aggressiveness to defeat the Czechs this time. The meeting had started with a bang for the latter, with a 21-14 in the first quarter. The French showed a nice burst of pride to lead 36-32 at the end of the first half.

Led by Pauline Astier (18 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists accompanied by 3 blocks and 3 steals), the Bleuettes conceded 20 points in the wake of their 20 loss of balls. This is one of the reasons for their defeat against the Czechs. In the first half, the all-terrain pressure on throw-in managed to thwart the French. Between the bad choices and the badly assured passes, France made many gifts to its adversary. To the point of offering the match.

Yet in the last moments of the match, the Bleuettes did not lack panache, like Pauline Astier’s 3 points to call back at a length in the last minute. Sara Roumy and Louise Bussière had the positions at long distance to extinguish the hopes of the locals. Unfortunately without success, despite a clear domination in the collective evaluation (77 to 58).
