ANTWERP, Belgium — The Canadian Women’s 3×3 Basketball Team won a silver medal at the FIBA ​​Basketball World Cup 2022 on Sunday after losing a 16-13 decision to France.

Michelle Plouffe had seven points, four rebounds and five blocks for Canada. His sister, Katherine Plouffe, had six points and seven rebounds.

“Team Canada is a really great team,” said Marie-Eve Paget of France. “You’re not in the final if you’re not a great team. We played against them in a friendly before the World Cup and we lost twice, so it’s revenge.”

Hortense Limouzin scored on a fadeaway jumper to give France a three-point lead with less than a minute to play, but Katherine Plouffe responded to make it a two-point game.

Michelle Plouffe deflected the ball out of bounds from a French player to give Canada possession with 17.2 seconds left. However, the Canadians were unable to score on their next possession.

Paget was fouled and she sealed the win for France on the line with 3.1 seconds left.

It was the first gold for France at the event and the first silver for the Canadians, who beat Lithuania 16-14 in the semifinals earlier in the day.
