LONDON (AP) -Celine Dumerc hit a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left in overtime Friday to give France an 80-77 victory over Britain and deny the hosts their first victory in women's Olympic basketball.
Dumerc, who finished with 14 points, also sent the game into overtime by hitting a 3-pointer with 5.6 seconds remaining in regulation.
Julie Page made one of two free throws to tie the game at 77-77 in OT with 10 seconds on the clock setting up a potential second overtime period. But Dumerc was able to create some space, shaking off two defenders, to hit the game-winner.

France is unbeaten in four games and has qualified for the quarterfinals.
