Essor Charleroi (Spirou B) vs. Sint-Niklase Condors: 77-56
The surprising performance of the week comes from Charleroi. Essor Charleroi defeated the Condors of coach Steve Ibens by 21 points. It is the third win for Essor Charleroi this season. Serbian player Nikola Jankovic (205-PF-94), who scored 22 points, was the leader of the young Spirou squad last Sunday morning. Best scorers: Essor: A. Lambot 16, Y. Diop 2, N. Jankovic 22, J.

Gembo BBC vs. Kangoeroes Boom: 79-74
Domien Loubry (186-G-85) was sick and did not play much for Gembo in the first half. Nevertheless, Eli Van Aken (193-F-85) and his mates gave the hosts a great 17-point lead by the end of the second quarter. The Kangoeroes of coach Tom Poppe looked quite nervous in the first half. The second half of the game turned out to be quite different. Kangoeroes' shooter Dieter Souveryns (193-F/G-83) suddenly found the way to the bucket. With a great Witse Van Schil (188-G-83) at playmaking, Kabo came back into the race. When the scoreboard showed 76-74, a last turnover after misunderstanding between Witse Van Schil and Mitchel Gorremans (191-G/F-85) in the last seconds costed Kabo the game. Score evolution: 23-16, 43-26, 57-50 and 79-74. Best scorers: Gembo: N. Celis 12, E. Van Aken 14, Y. Desiron 17, D. Loubry 11. Kangoeroes: M. Gorremans 11, W. Van Schil 17, D. Souveryns 24.
Port of Antwerp Giants II vs. Cuva Houthalen: 78-87
Currently ranked second in Division II, Cuva Houthalen of Brian Lynch had a rather hard time to beat the young Giants of Luc Smout. So far in the Division II regular season, Cuva stands second with a record of 11 wins and 5 losses while the Giants II are ranked fifteenth with a record of 1 win and 15 losses. Best scorers: Giants II: D. Donkor 30, M. Rademakers 15, A. Rojas Palma 12. Cuva: N/A
BC Haantjes Oudenaarde vs. Bent Schoenen Waregem: 81-68
The start of the game was clearly in favour of the Haantjes. Their new (but experienced) coach Guy Decleer saw his players quickly take a 7-2 lead. Nevertheless, BS Waregem of coach Sven Declercq hit 9 points in a row and, all of a sudden, it was a close game again. Despite low scoring in the first and second quarters, it remained an intense game until it showed 43-47 on the scoreboard in the third quarter. The Haantjes, with a very efficient Mikhail Linskens (213-C-87, agency: R.H.Consultancy, college: Wyoming), finished strongly in the last minutes of the third period (51-47) and played tough in the beginning of the fourth quarter (59-49). Great rebounding by BS Waregem's players Ahmet Gueye (203-C/F-82, college: Hawaii), Bart Willy Samaey (199-C-87) and Stijn Dhondt (197-F-79, college: Boston U.) was not sufficient for the visitors. The last time-outs taken by Sven Declercq did not change anything and BC Oudenaarde, led by Jean Salumu (193-F-90) in offense, won the game: 81-68 (via 80-60). Score evolution: 18-17, 32-29, 51-47 and 81-68. Best scorers: Haantjes: J. Salumu 21, M. Linskens 19, J. Bourdeaux 18, M. Brysse 10, G. Mestdag 6, L. Lhote 4, G. De Lepeleire 3. BS Waregem: T. Foucart 17, A. Steinbach 13, L. De Lepeleire 12, O. Foucart 8, A. Gueye 8, B. Samaey 6, S. Dhondt 3, H. Loontiens 1.
Gent Dragons vs. Excelsior Brussels: 88-73
Excelsior Brussels had a rather poor second quarter. This is a convincing victory for the Dragons in this important game between two play-off candidates. Maxime Depuydt (192-F-92) and Sam Semijejero (195-PF-77) had brought the Brussels' team from 56-41 to 62-54 in the third quarter. Dragon scorer Faycal Lait (190-G-88, agency: Promotex) put a last touch from long and mid-range to set the final score at 88-73. Special mentions to Thomas Van De Vondel (194-F/G-80) with 23 points scored for the winning side and to Sam Semijejero with great stats on the losing side (7 rebounds, 4 assists, 5 steals and 21 points). Score evolution: 23-25, 45-35, 68-57 and 88-73. Best scorers: Dragons: J. Jones 4, B. Heinle 15, R. Spaens 12, F. Lait 12, T. Van De Vondel 23, M. Van Gelder 4, L. Enobakhare 8, C. Tshimuanga 10. Excelsior: X. Collette 2, N. Verrept 2, M. Depuydt 11, J. Van Haevermaet 4, G. De Pooter 9, L. Maesfrancx 4, J. De Schepper 18, R. Oveneke 2, S. Semijejero 21.
Belfius Mons Hainaut II vs. Sint-Jan Antwerp: 81-90 (after OT)
Sint-Jan comes back from the Borinage Region with a nice win. Efforts by Lorenzo Giancaterino (190-F/G-90) and Emmanuel Lecomte (175-G-95) were not enough to stop the Jantjes. SJBA's centers Bram Raes (211-C-86) and Mario Brown (202-F-84, college: Jacksonville) controlled the air in the last minutes of the game and, with Senne Geukens (190-G-83) as top-scorer, the visitors won the overtime 4-13. Sint-Jan will welcome CEP Fleurus at the Arenahal in Deurne at 20:45 next Saturday (2013-01-12, also the birthday of SJBA's coach Steve Cornelis ). As announced on Sint-Jan's website, it will be free entrance for all fans of basketball. Score evolution: 16-16, 36-39, 62-58, 77-77 and 81-90. Best scorers: Mons Hainaut II: L. Giancaterino 32, E. Lecomte 20, L. Schwartz 5, A. Gorgemans 15, K. Tumba 9. Sint-Jan: B. Raes 4, N. El Khounchar 17, A. Druwez 16, S. Geukens 34, L. Anthonis 2, V. Kesteloot 3, M. Brown 14.
CEP Fleurus vs. Point Chaud Sprimont: 64-74
There was a big difference of energy level in the last minutes of the game. Great shooting performance by Gaetan Hertay (195-F-88) from long range on the visitors' side. The Greens of Sprimont played without their experienced center Jerome Flagothier (210-C) last weekend. Gilles Vrancken (192-PF) felt particularly at ease last Friday at the Salle Andre Robert in Fleurus: he hit crucial shots in the last quarter to give his team a well-deserved win. 23 turnovers were recorded for the home team! The only CEP players who left a positive impression were Amaury Marion (196-F-91) and Louis Hazard (199-F-94). The CEP team was punished and invited to attend a training and running session at 7:00 am on Saturday morning. Another bad news for CEP Fleurus has also filtered lately: Anthony Chada (196-G/F-89), still annoyed by an injury, has decided to give up and quits playing for CEP F this season.
