The most important game in the last round took place in Orchies between third ranked Souffelweyersheim (13-7) and fourth ranked Orchesien BC (14-6) on Tuesday night. Souffelweyersheim was crushed by Orchesien BC on the road 90-60. The game without a history. Orchesien BC led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Souffelweyersheim to just 7 points in fourth quarter. Orchesien BC forced 20 Souffelweyersheim turnovers and outrebounded them 36-23 including a 28-14 advantage in defensive rebounds. Orchesien BC shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 51.9 percentage. The best player for the winners was point guard Emilien Barbry (188-83) who scored 14 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Serbian forward Djordje Petrovic (202-84) chipped in 18 points. Orchesien BC's coach Philippe Namyst felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Center Sebastien Kancel (205-80) produced 13 points and 5 rebounds for the guests. Orchesien BC have an impressive six-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Souffelweyersheim at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Orchesien BC are looking forward to face Le Puy ASMB (#16) in Le Puy en Velay in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Souffelweyersheim will play at home against Cognac (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Saint-Quentin delivered the sixteenth victory. This time they crushed 14th ranked Rueil (8-12) 91-55. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Rueil. American guard Keonta Howell (193-85, college: Toledo) orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points and 6 rebounds. Jimmal Ball contributed with 22 points and 4 steals (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winners. Naturalized Serbian center Streten Cabarkapa (204-84) replied with 16 points and 6 rebounds for Rueil. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Saint-Quentin (16-4) have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain first position. Newly promoted Rueil keeps the fourteenth place with 12 games lost. Saint-Quentin will play against Vendee Challans (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Rueil will play against Blois (#6) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Eighteenth-ranked CFBB (2-18) made lots of trouble for seventh ranked Roche (13-7) in Paris on Tuesday. The visitors from Roche managed to secure only seven-point victory 78-71. However their fans expected much easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Moustafa Diallo who helped to win the game recording 18 points (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!). Mouhammadou Jaiteh responded with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 17 rebounds. CFBB's coach Jacques Commeres rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Roche have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 3 other teams. CFBB lost third consecutive game. They stay dead last with 18 lost games. Roche will meet at home Stade Clermont (#15) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. CFBB will play against Lievin Basket and hope to secure a win.

Rest of the games of round 20 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Brest was defeated by Cognac in a road game 101-92. Clermont was beaten by Challans at home 73-77. Le Puy lost to Blois on the opponent's court 71-81. Montbrison unfortunately lost to Sorgues in a home game 76-92. Chartres managed to beat Angers BC 49 on the road 75-67. Lievin was defeated by Charleville on its own court 64-74.



Cognac - Brest 101-92

There was no surprise when 11th ranked Etendard de Brest (9-11) was defeated on the road by fifth ranked Cognac (13-7) 101-92 on Tuesday. Etendard de Brest trailed by 17 points after 3 quarters before a 31-23 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 92-101 at the end of the game. Cognac made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 32 assists comparing to just 18 passes made by Etendard de Brest's players. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Jonathan Godin (185-82) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points and 11 assists and American center Ian Caskill (207-81, college: JMU) who added 14 points and 11 rebounds during the contest. Cognac's coach Philippe Maucourant used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. Guard Zaka Alao (187-81) responded with 23 points and Spanish center Rafael Lopez (204-86) scored 14 points and 6 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Five Cognac and four Etendard de Brest players scored in double figures. Cognac moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Etendard de Brest lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eleventh position with 11 games lost. They share it with Chartres and Angers BC 49. Cognac will meet Souffelweyersheim (#5) in the next round. Etendard de Brest will play against Angers BC 49 (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Clermont - Challans 73-77

No shocking result in a game when tenth ranked Vendee Challans (11-9) defeated on the road 15th ranked Stade Clermont (6-14) 77-73 on Tuesday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 22-16. But Stade Clermont won second period 15-13. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Vendee Challans made 21-of-24 free shots (87.5 percent) during the game.

Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Josh Almanson (205-82, college: Bowling Green) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 rebounds and forward Fabien Herard (198-79) who added 14 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!) during the contest. American forward Jonathan McClark (200-77, college: Rider) responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 15 rebounds and Bulgarian swingman Simeon Naydenov (201-81, college: Louisville, agency: Global Sports Plaza) scored 21 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Vendee Challans moved-up to ninth place. Loser Stade Clermont keeps the fifteenth position with 14 games lost. Vendee Challans will meet at home league's leader Saint-Quentin in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Stade Clermont will play against Roche (#7) and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the ProB just one year after relegation.
