ANTIBES, France (AP) -- Oklahoma center Courtney Paris scored 7 points and led the U.S. with 10 rebounds in the team's 81-68 win Tuesday in an exhibition game against France.
Jolene Anderson, Essence Carson and Abby Waner each had 15 points to lead the U.S. team in scoring. The two squads of players under age 21 are meeting in a series of three exhibition games this week in preparation for the World Championships for that age group next week.
The U.S. trailed 57-55 entering the 4th quarter of this game, but outscored France 26-11 the rest of the way.
The U.S. will look to sweep the three-game series in the final game on Thursday.
