Belfius Mons Hainaut II vs. Cuva Houthalen: 102-98
One more evidence that going to the mons.arena on a Friday night is definitely not easy. The Belfius Mons Hainaut II team with great young talents like Lorenzo Giancaterino (190-F/G-90), Emmanuel Lecomte (180-G-95), Amaury Gorgemans (212-C-92), Loic Schwartz (198-G/F-92) and mates have already won three games in this Division II competition. Cuva Houthalen was still quite efficient in offense but, again, could not avoid their opponents' highscoring of 102 points. Cuva's stats show that the team of Province Limburg has had "612 points against" in 6 games played (average: 102.00). Also to be mentioned: the debut of US player Brian Tracey (195-F-88) for Cuva Houthalen. Best scorers: Mons Hainaut II: N/A Cuva: B. Tracey 11.
CEP Fleurus vs. Sint-Niklase Condors: 72-69
CEP player Kevin Jonniaux (198-G-83) warmed up but did not play in this game. He should be back in action soon and will have a new team mate: CEP eventually did not sign Karim Nesba (188-G-86, agency: Promotex, college: Auburn-Montgomery) but inked Anthony Chada (196-G/F-89) instead. Chada convinced the CEP staff after some try-outs. The Sint-Niklase Condors of coach Steve Ibens started strongly in this game. Sebastien Vermeulen (207-F/C-81) gave a hard time to the CEP big men in the paint. In the first quarter, Anthony Chada played his first minutes with CEP Fleurus but this was not enough to put an end to the visitors' efficiency in the paint and in fastbreak situation: 11-19 after ten minutes. The Condors played very well during two third of the game. CondorElias Lasisi (192-G/F-92) hit big three-pointers at the end of the second and third quarters: 27-41 and 51-57. Christian Ilongo (194-F-85, agency: Promotex), Louis Hazard (199-F-94), Amaury Marion (196-F-91) and Ludovic Pourtoit (182-G-88) had boosted their team in the third quarter but CEP was still behind after thirty minutes. Fans of both sides were thrilled by the game but also annoyed by obnoxious referees' calls in the final quarter. The home team tied the game at 57-57 but Steve Ibens' well-balanced squad, although counting some players in foul trouble, quickly re-took the lead at 57-64 with 6'21" remaining in the game. Christian Ilongo, physically fit and very spectacular through the whole game, gave the advantage to his team at 67-66. The Condors lost Joao-Pedro De Decker (190-F-83) and Jeroen Gerlo (193-C-85) who were fouled out in the last quarter while Christian Manzanza (193-F-85, college: Peninsula JC) of CEP also had a fifth foul. The visitors made 67-69 but the CEPmen reassured their fans by hitting important shots and free-throws in the last minute. Ilongo fixed the final score from the line at 72-69 and the Condors missed a last attempt from long range.

Essor Charleroi (Spirou B) vs. Gembo BBC: 72-91
After a good start by Essor (21-17) led by Boris Penninck (202-C-88), BBC Gembo came back slowly in the race. Ward Lemaire (196-F-80) showed the way to his Gembo mates but the young hardworking Essor players remained on top at the half: 44-43. Thanks to a tremendous job offensively in the third quarter, Stefan Sappenberghs' guys took a large lead and left the home team almost without reaction: 49-73. Essor managed to slightly reduce the gap in the last quarter but it was too late for them to avoid a new defeat at home: 72-91 on the scoreboard after 40 minutes.
Sint-Jan Antwerp vs. Gent Dragons: 80-89
Head to head in the first minutes of this game: 4-6, 7-6 and 9-9. The visitors then took a larger lead and even recorded +13 just after half-time (45-58). Nevertheless, Senne Geukens (190-G-83) led the Jantjes to a fantastic come-back and made 58-58 in the third quarter. It was a whole new game from then on but the strong defense of the visitors made the difference in the end. With strong men like Brian Heinle (205-F-78, agency: Court Side, college: CS Northridge), Leigh Enobakhare (206-C-86, agency: Court Side) and Constantin Mukole Tschimuanga (86) in the paint, the Dragons are quite impressive as far as defending and rebounding are concerned. Sint-Jan was left behind and remained silent as the Dragons defended very well. The visitors benefited therefore of fastbreak situations: 63-65, 65-77, 66-82, 74-83 and finally 80-89 on the scoreboard in the fourth quarter. Score evolution: 16-27, 41-47, 63-65 and 80-89. Best scorers: Dragons: B. Heinle 6, R. Spaens 15, L. Tielens 12, F. Lait 8, T. Van De Vondel 17, M. Van Gelder 9, L. Enobakhare 18, M. Detiege 2, C. Tshimuanga 7. Sint-Jan: V. Haerbos 5, B. Hartshorne 16, V. Verbeeck 2, B. Raes 2, N. El Khounchar 10, A. Druwez 8, S. Geukens 23, L. Anthonis 2, V. Kesteloot 4, P. Smulders 4, M. Brown 4.
Bent Schoenen Waregem vs. Excelsior Brussels: 81-84
The home team (without Stan Naudts and Stijn Dhondt, two main players) always trailed behind in this game. After a crucial time-out taken by BS Waregem's coach Sven Declercq when the scoreboard showed 47-60, the hosts came closer and closer. After 59-62 indeed, the visitors (without injured players Emma Mampuya, Stephane Pelle and Jonathan Kabangu) relaunched the machine and had interesting offensive plays to make 74-81. Despite missing last attempts, the Excelsior team remained ahead in the last seconds of the game and had gained sufficient advantage to eventually win it: 81-84 (final score). Serge Grevecoeur, the Brussels' coach, told the press last week that Excelsior experienced player Stephane Pelle ( (205-C/F-80, college: Colorado, injured) could miss quite a few games. Special mention to Gregory De Pooter (196-F-84) who scored 26 points for the winners and Ahmet Gueye (203-C/F-82, college: Hawaii) and Bart Samaey (199-C-87) who recorded "double doubles" on the losing side.

BBC Haantjes Oudenaarde vs. Point Chaud Sprimont: 89-78
It is undoubtedly always tough to play Point Chaud Sprimont, a true run-and-shooting team. The first half remained close and the visitors played well to stay in the race. The Haantjes did not fall into the trap. They were more efficient in offense in the third quarter and eventually won the game at the Sporthal Rode Los. Laurent LHote (182-PG-84), with 20 points, led the Haantjes in scoring. Special Mention to Frederic Delsaute (191-F-86) who had 21 points for the losing team.

BasKet Tongeren vs. Kangoeroes Boom: 91-84
