Expect an intense showdown at the Mall of Asia Arena as France takes on Turkey in the semifinal of the FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament. 

France swept Group B after posting wins over the Philippines (93-84) and New Zealand (66-59). Les Bleus boast of the prolific backcourt duo of Nando De Colo and Tony Parker. Reigning Euroleague MVP De Colo leads the team in scoring with 17 points per game while NBA All-Star Parker is averaging 13.5 points and 3.5 assists.

Antoine Diot and Thomas Heurtel are the other players to watch in France's backcourt. For frontcourt support, head coach Vincent Collet will count on NBA mainstays Boris Diaw and Joffrey Lauvergne and Spain-based forward Kim Tillie. Another key player for Les Bleus is wingman Mickael Gelabale.

It remains uncertain if NBA star Nicolas Batum will suit up after missing their first two games.

Turkey, meanwhile, finished second in Group A after losing to Canada (69-77) and beating Senegal (68-62). Ali Muhammed is a marked man after the naturalized guard scored 23 points against the Senegalese including several crucial baskets. The player formerly known as Bobby Dixon is averaging a team-high 12 points.

For other scoring options, head coach Ergin Ataman will count on guards Sinan Güler and Melih Mahmutoglu and twin towers Semih Erden and Omer Asik. The Turks earlier lost talented wingman Cedi Osman to a leg injury in their game against Canada. 

The winner of this game will play either Canada or New Zealand in Sunday's final where a ticket to the Rio Olympics is at stake. 

France walloped Turkey 76-53 in the last 16 of the 2015 Eurobasket with De Colo leading the way with 15 points and seven rebounds.
