Looks like Trail Blazer Nicolas Batum, who will be representing France in the upcoming London Olympics, is in for some tough competition out of the gate.
Today the official draw
for groupings took place and France and the USA landed in the same group.
Here are the groups:
- Group A: Argentina, France, Tunisia, USA, OQT 1, OQT 2
- Group B: Australia, Brazil, China, Great Britain, Spain, OQT 3 (The final three teams have yet to qualify)
Each team will play every other team in their group. The top four teams will then move on to an elimination bracket.
With top teams like Spain and now the United States taking some heavy losses to injury Batum and Les Bleus odds are ever increasing.
Are you excited to see Team USA take on Batum and the French during the prelims? I know I am. But then again, I have Olympic fever every two years.
