Serbia stood tall in the Championship Game against France and won the 2021 FIBA Women’s EuroBasket (54-63).

The Serbians relied on their defense, conceded 15 or fewer points in each of the four quarters and climbed to the top of Europe. On the other hand, France couldn’t make the difference on the offensive end and that cost them the victory and the coveted title.

Sonja Vasic (MVP of the tournament) was the best player of the winners, with 12 points and eight rebounds. On the contrary, Valeriane Vukosavljevic had 15 points and five boards for the French team, which finished second and won the silver medal.
