Pierre Vincent names FIBA World Championship roster for France

Pierre Vincent played his FIBA World Championship roster in the final match against Japan this evening (11 September 2010) at the international tournament in Villeneuve d'Ascq, France.

France won this match (71-64) with 20 points coming from Emméline Ndongue. They dominated the first 20 minutes but were unable to put Japan away during the second half of the match.

Ndongue explained after the game that this was a good game for the team's preparation for the FIBA World Championship because they have to learn how to play against opponents such as Japan that are not very tall but very quick.

Marielle Amant who did not play in this tournament and who has battled through injury and personal tragedy and her club team-mate Johanne Gomis (left) were released from training camp.

Prior to these players leaving the camp Yacine Séné from Mondeville was released on the 6th September.

For Doriane Tahane, her adventure ended when she hurt her knee. Her injury occurred just before Sandrine Gruda returned from her time in the WNBA.

For Ana Cata-Chitiga, Sarah Michel and Ingrid Tanqueray (who had replaced Virginie Brémont), the other members of the initial FIBA World Championship training roster their trial ended after the first training camp.

France have played 8 official training matches, winning 6 and losing 2 so far.

They were beaten by Greece (70-58) in a four-nation international tournament in Lugo, Spain. They also lost more recently in Villneuve d'Ascq against Belarus (64-58).
