Spain wins 2022 EuroBasket after beating France 88-76


After defeating France 88-76 in the championship game, Spain has officially won the 2022 EuroBasket, as announced on social media. This is the fourth time Spain has won the tournament.

Spain was led by Raptors forward Juancho Hernangomez, who finished with 27 points on 9-of-11 shooting. His seven 3-pointers were the second-highest mark in a EuroBasket final, trailing only Aleksander Djordjevic in 1995, according to EuroHoops. He also won the MVP award.

“Spain played better from start to finish, they had a clear gameplan and we didn’t execute ours well enough, we never really had control of the game,” France guard Evan Fournier said, as relayed by EuroHoops.

Hernangomez’s brother, Willy, finished with 14 points and eight rebounds for Spain, while Lorenzo Brown recorded 14 points and 11 assists. France was led by Fournier’s 23 points and only led once during the contest — when Rudy Gobert made a free throw to make it 1-0.
