Foucart
Essor Charleroi (Spirou B) vs. BBC Haantjes Oudenaarde: 60-100

Despite having three major players missing, the Haantjes never gave any chance to their hosts. BBC Oudenaarde showed up in Jumet (a suburb of Charleroi) without Gillis Mestdag (197-F/C-80, college: Siskiyous JC), Mikhail Linskens (213-C-87, agency: R.H.Consultancy, college: Wyoming) and Maarten Brysse (205-C-86) last Sunday morning. The very weak Spirou B team never found a good rhythm. The young Spirou boys could never be boosted by their coach Pascal Angilis either. Special mention to experienced players Joeri Bourdeaux (190-F/G-78) and Floris Moerman (195-F-78) who were well present and efficient for the visitors. Only French guard Yann Siegwarth (184-PG-93) managed to show some worthy skills from time to time for the hosts. Free online video highlights and interview of Essor coach Pascal Angilis broadcasted on Telesambre (in French) last Monday: http://telesambre.rtc.be/content/view/16580/599/.
Best scorers:
Essor: Y. Siegwarth 18, A. Lambot 9, J. Stas 13, Y. Diop 2, M. Fusek 6, B. Penninck 4, J. Charles 4, M. Steenberghs 2, A. Eyenga 2.
Haantjes: N. Delepeleire 2, S. Delepeleire 2, G. Delepeleire 11, J. Bourdeaux 30, F. Moerman 24, J. Salumu 29, L. Lhote 2.

Gembo BBC vs. Sint-Jan Antwerp: 102-79

Great derby in the Antwerp metropole last weekend! After a close first half, Domien Loubry (186-G-85) and Nick Celis (194-G-88) helped their team to reach a larger advantage in the third and fourth quarters. On Sint-Jan's side, Pim Smulders (210-C-89) and Bram Raes (211-C-86) were quickly in foul trouble and Mario Brown (202-F-84, college: Jacksonville), still injured, could not play his usual role of intimidator in this game. The hosts of coach Stefan Sappenberghs also played a tough defense at some point, allowing the Jantjes to score only two field goals in the third quarter. Free video highlights available on atv.be (see http://www.atv.be/item/gembo-wint-boeiende-burenstrijd in Flemish) and on YouTube (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd-R3hOUxNc&feature=youtu.be).
Score evolution: 26-27, 50-43, 74-59 and 102-79.
Best scorers:
Gembo: D. Loubry 27, N. Celis 23, Y. Desiron 12, T. Goethaert 6, A. Goetgeluck 8, E. Van Aken 8, W. Lemaire 5, A. Vermeersch 9, P. Van Rillaer 6.
Sint-Jan: B. Hartshorne 17, A. Druwez 15, V. Kesteloot 10, S. Geukens 12, V. Haerbos 8, V. Verbeeck 3, N. El Khounchar 8, L. Anthonis 5, P. Smulders 2.

Sint-Niklase Condors vs. Point Chaud Sprimont: 85-71

Joris De Schepper (187-G/F-83), currently active with Excelsior Brussels, will be part of the Condors' squad next season. This has just been announced on the Klaasjes' official website today. Meanwhile, the Condors hosted Point Chaud Sprimont led by Frederic Delsaute (191-F-86) last weekend. The home team managed to stay ahead during the whole game but it was never easy against Sprimont, a very surprising team again this season. The Condors were ahead by 5 points at the half. Elias Lasisi (192-G/F-92, agency: Court Side) was excellent but his mate Bjorn De Beukeleer (185-G/F-89), who hit three crucial shots from three-point range at the right time, was the player who allowed the Klaasjes to eventually take a larger lead in the second half. The men of coach Steve Ibens keep doing well this season and clearly remain true play-off candidates.
Best scorers:
Condors: N/A
PC Sprimont: F. Manset 8, F. Delsaute 17, J.-B. Thom 6, G. Vrancken 3, A. Bousmanne 2, J. Flagothier 10, G. Hertay 8, R. Delhaye 2, G. Donnay 15.

BasKet Tongeren vs. Bent Schoenen Waregem: 83-101

Although it was announced on the BS Waregem's website that Ahmet Gueye (203-C/F-82, college: Hawaii) and the club staff had agreed to break their contract by mutual agreement, the Senegalese center was well present last weekend. After their poor first quarter, the BK men of coach Ludo Horions reacted very well in the second quarter and even early in the third one (scoreboard showed 46-54 after 25 minutes). Nevertheless, Olivier Foucart (195-G-84) and Thomas Foucart (195-F-84) were the real MVPs in this game. The twins had 53 points (Olivier 30 and Thomas 23): more than half of the total points scored by the BS Waregem team in this game.
Score evolution: 11-27, 34-38, 61-76 and 83-101.
Best scorers:
BK Tongeren: N/A
BS Waregem: O. Foucart 30, T. Foucart 23, A. Gueye 16, A. Steinbach 12, S. Dhondt 9, H. Loontiens 5, B. Samaey 4, N. Destadsbader 2.

Kangoeroes Boom vs. Excelsior Brussels: 81-88

The great result of this weekend is definitely for Excelsior. It was a real thriller and, in the end, the men of coach Serge Crevecoeur finished on top. In this match-up between two Ethias League candidates, Randy Oveneke (201-F-86) (despite being fouled out) showed his full talent in all sectors of the game for the visitors: 14 points, 3 assists and 8 rebounds. Excelsior also managed to keep Kangoeroes' star Dieter Souveryns (193-F/G-83) to only 6 points last Friday. Special mentions also to Excelsior quatuor Emmanuel Mampuya (200-F/C-79, agency: Promotex), Lars Maesfrancx (197-F-90), Stephane Pelle (205-C/F-80, college: Colorado) and Kanefu "Sam" Semijejero (195-PF-77) who had interesting plays at crucial moments in this game. The Kangoeroes of coach Tom Poppe were always in the race, mainly thanks to a superb performance by Sebastien Bellin (205-C-78, agency: Prossin Sports Management, college: Oakland), and were only outscored in the last quarter. Also an interesting figure: 40 rebounds grabbed by the Excel guys!
Score evolution: 16-19, 42-41, 60-60 and 81-88.
Best scorers:
Kangoeroes: S. Bellin 22, D. Souveryns 6, W. Dobbelaere 12, W. Van Schil 7, M. Gorremans 21, D. Dhaens 11, A. Mollekens 2.
Excelsior: E. Mampuya 8, X. Collette 13, M. Depuydt 1, J. Van Haevermaet 16, G. De Pooter 6, L. Maesfrancx 8, J. De Schepper 11, S. Pelle 4, R. Oveneke 14, S. Semijejero 7.

Belfius Mons Hainaut II vs. Port of Antwerp Giants II: 86-70

These two Belgian Development League teams also involved in the Division II competition offered a good game to the few fans present at the mons.arena. The young Foxes were always in front and Amaury Gorgemans (211-C-92) had good stats last Friday: 26 points, 3 steals and 5 rebounds. Special mention also to Lorenzo Giancaterino (190-F/G-90) with a +/- evaluation of +32 on the winning side and to Dorian Marchant (198-F-93) with 35 points on the losing side. With 20 turnovers, the visitors of coach Luc Smout could certainly never claim the win in this game.
Score evolution: 30-19, 51-36, 71-53 and 86-70.
Best scorers:
Mons Hainaut II: L. Giancaterino 14, E. Lecomte 13, G. Vlamynck 2, L. Schwartz 9, D. Walasiak 2, M. Renard 3, A. Gorgemans 26, K. Tumba 17.
Giants II: T. Akyazili 2, P. Peeters 4, A. Rojas Palma 7, O. Kandakanjinda 5, B. Van Den Broeck 2, D. De Hoon 2, Ya. Schoepen 8, Yo. Schoepen 5, D. Marchant 35.

CEP Fleurus vs. Gent Dragons: 75-62

With this great win over the Dragons, the CEPmen have honored their coach Paul Vervaeck who has just signed a two-year contract with Port of Antwerp Giants (in the Ethias League). Paul Vervaeck will join the Giants next summer. You need to have two good teams to have a great game and it was certainly the case last Friday night. CEP always seemed to have everything under control but needed an excellent first half from long range shooting by Kevin Jonniaux (198-G-83) and a great team spirit to keep being in front during the whole game. After 18-8, the Dragons reacted well and, led by Thomas Van De Vondel (194-F/G-80), came closer and closer in the second half of the first quarter. Sead Muric (205-C-81) was simply perfect in his role of center for the Black and Yellows and annoyed the visitors' big men Brian Heinle (205-F-78, agency: Court Side, college: CS Northridge) and Leigh Enobakhare (206-C-86, agency: Court Side). Sead "Ibiza" Muric was well present offensively too. CEP F remained ahead mainly thanks to great shots hit from downtown by Kevin Jonniaux. It was also a real pleasure to see Amaury Marion (196-F-91), Louis Hazard (199-F-94) and Rik Van den Berghe (208-C-93) together on the floor in the last minutes of the second quarter. Helped by Christian Ilongo (194-F-85, agency: Promotex), Kevin Jonniaux or Thomas Bauwens (192-F-86), the three gentlemen were clearly able to challenge the Dragons. Louis Hazard also had a fantastic third quarter, when his team took a larger lead. Last Gentenaar efforts by Thomas Van De Vondel, Leigh Enobakhare, Robin Spaens (180-G-92) and Maarten Van Gelder (194-F-83) were not enough to defeat a very diligent and hardworking CEP team. Very spectacular plays by Christian Manzanza (193-F-85, college: Peninsula JC) and Christian Ilongo as well as great three-pointers by Thomas Bauwens made the small local crowd cheer. Basketball fans could go back home with the feeling of having attended an excellent basketball game at the Salle Andre Robert last Friday. Free video and interview of Paul Vervaeck and Christian Ilongo on Telesambre (in French): http://telesambre.rtc.be/content/view/16568/166/.
Score evolution: 20-14, 39-33, 60-45 and 75-62.
Best scorers:
CEP F: A. Marion 6, K. Jonniaux 19, C. Manzanza 8, T. Bauwens 14, L. Hazard 12, S. Muric 10, C. Ilongo 6.
Dragons: J. Jones 2, B. Heinle 6, R. Spaens 6, F. Lait 3, T. Van de Vondel 24, M. Van Gelder 5, L. Enobakhare 12, M. Detiege 2, C. Tshimuanga 2.
