China and France met last week at the Stankovic Cup, with Les Bleus coming out on top, en route to winning the tournament. Like that squad, this French roster that China meets in Yixing, Jiangsu Province is mainly composed of back-ups and youth players -- as their "A" team gets ready for the Olympics.

The PRC are also preparing for Rio, and would field a stronger line-up, as they look to get on a roll before the Games.

The visitors get off to a quick start thanks to some good defense, which leads to a turnover and a fastbreak hoop the other way by Terence Tar.

Trailing 9-2, Yi Jianlian steps up for the hosts, going hard to the rack.

And the Guangdong Southern Tigers big man, would be able to beat his man again to get to the cup for the And-1. He scores a game-high 27.

France would go on a 12-2 run in the second quarter -- denying a basket at one end, and then getting the triple at the other -- Hugo Inver doing the honors, to put his side in front 8.

China battle back in the second half -- Yi again finding the ability to score down low, and trims the margin to just three points.

Some good passing leads to a hoop underneath for Zhai Xiaochuan, who is left all alone.

More unselfish play leads to a throwdown from Zhou Qi, as the the margin is down to three.

China go on a late run, and are able to come away with a 75-70 victory.
