Another day, another basketball game dominated by Rudy Gobert.
The setting, country, opponent, jersey, etc might change, but one thing remains constant; Rudy Gobert is a dominant force on the basketball floor. In France’s second game of the first-round group stage vs. Jordan Tuesday morning, Rudy Gobert posted 16 points, 13 rebounds, and 2 blocks. This individual performance helped France to a 39-point victory, and earned Gobert FIBA Player of the Game.

Gobert has been a key reason why France is 2-0 in group play, and has them looking like a serious threat to earn a medal at the FIBA World Cup. Rudy and France will finish off the first round of group play vs. Dominican Republic on Thursday at 6:30 AM MST.
