Tony Parker and Joakim Noah helped lead France past Greece to reach the semi-finals of the European basketball championship, 64-56. Parker had 18 points. 

Noah had a huge play in the fourth quarter, having a key steal to help the French win. They will face the winner of the Russia-Serbia game. 

Ioannis Bourousis led Greece with 17 points and eleven rebounds. They led 43-40 into the fourth quarter, but the game went out of hand after that. 

Parker played well, leading the 24-13 rally in the final quarter. 

"I've worked too hard this summer and the last 10 years to let it end now," said Parker.

Nando de Colo had 16 points and Nicolas Batum had 15 to add to France's total.

"They really broke our rhythm at the start. They pretty much put us to sleep," Parker said. "But we got into the third quarter well and we never doubted that we would win."

France looks to become one of the two finalists so they can compete for the 2012 London Olmypics.

"This was our first goal, now we want to go straight to the Olympics," France coach Vincent Collet said.

Good luck to France, and if they keep playing well like this, you can bet that they'll be there in London.
