The France women's national basketball team is administrated by the Fédération Française de Basket-Ball (French Federation). The team's nickname Les Braqueuses ("the robbers") originated from their unexpected triumph in the 2009 Eurobasket.[2] France is the leading nation in terms of EuroBasket Women qualifications.
