Jean-Pierre Siutat says summer is ‘disappointing’ for youth teams

Jean-Pierre Siutat, the president of the French Basketball Federation, is not satisfied with the results of the youth teams this summer.

Only three bronze medals. Jean-Pierre Siutat, president of the FFBB, was probably hoping for at least one title. Only the French U16 women’s team can still restore this tanned summer. The president spoke on social media “ a disappointing summer for our youth teams“.

We are of course thinking of the failures of the U20 and U18 men, only fifth in their respective EuroBasket. Spain has often been the cause of these mixed results. Example once again with the U16 men, eliminated in the semi-finals by the Iberians. They will try this Saturday evening to take bronze against Greece (6:45 p.m., YouTube FIBA).
