France – Poland. The Blues corrected Poland in the semi-finals of the 2022 European Basketball Cup and are heading to the final. They will face Germany and Spain who will also face each other on Friday, September 16th.
19:20 – Match summary
The French are in the final and in style! The Blues pushed Poland out of their way after a much more successful game than the previous ones (95-54). From the first minutes, the Blues showed a certain defensive mastery despite new ball losses. In fact, they lost a dozen balloons after the first chapter, enough to reignite past fears. But unlike previous meetings, the French proved to have an iron defence. Rudi Joubert made several rather impressive counters. On the contrary, this Poland seems to have no answers to thwarting this aggressive defensive scheme. In the end, Igor Milicic’s men scored only nine points in the first quarter and many points in the second quarter. While the third quarter was unsuccessful for the French in their knockout encounters, they were able to rectify that by worsening the score this afternoon. With 30-18 in the third quarter, the Blues had 28 points before the last 10 minutes started. These last minutes will only cement the prevailing French hegemony. Vincent Colette also took the opportunity to rest the executives and give playtime to those who didn’t have enough yet. Despite the great rotation, M’Baye, Okobo, or even Fall returned with the same determination as their teammates. Vincent Colette’s men will be able to watch the other semi-final match of this competition between Germany and Spain tonight at 8:30pm with some relaxation before meeting one of the other two teams on Sunday.

We know where we’re going and we defended.” Very well “.
