Dumerc lifts France over Great Britain in OT

Celine Dumerc made a three-pointer with 0.2 seconds left in overtime to give France an 80-77 victory over Great Britain in the women's basketball tournament.

Dumerc, who finished with 14 points, also made a shot from beyond the arc with 5.6 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime.

Sandrine Gruda and Edwige Lawson-Wade added 16 points apiece for France, which improved to 4-0 in Group B and will play Russia on Sunday.

Johannah Leedham had 29 points and eight rebounds to lead Great Britain, which has lost all four of its games.

Julie Page's free throw tied the game at 77-77 with 10 seconds to go in overtime. But Dumerc buried the game-winning three on France's ensuing possession for the win.
