LONDON (AP) - Tony Parker scored 22 points and Nicolas Batum added 19, leading France past Tunisia 73-69 on Saturday for its third straight victory in Olympic basketball.
Kevin Seraphin finished with 10 points for the French, who have bounced back nicely after losing to the U.S. in their opener. France closes pool play Monday against Nigeria before playing in the quarterfinals.
Mohamed Hadidane scored 20 points and Makram Ben Romdhane had 17 for winless Tunisia, which seemed beaten in the third quarter but chipped away and was single digits for much of the fourth quarter.
