Rochestie
Very exciting round. It does not happen too often that three games need overtime in just one round. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, few extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Round 18 in ProA means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Le Mans where host Le Mans (12-6) edged league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque (15-3) 85-83 in overtime on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Gravelines-Dunkerque. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Gravelines-Dunkerque won fourth quarter 25-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening, at least not yet. The game turned upside-down in the last quarter, where Gravelines-Dunkerque used huge pressure winning it 25-16 getting a tie at the end of regular time. They lost eventually overtime period 5-7. Le Mans made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was American point guard Taylor Rochestie (185-PG-85, college: Washington St.) who scored 19 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. The other American import forward Marcellus Sommerville (200-82, college: Bradley) chipped in 16 points and 9 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was the former international guard Yannick Bokolo (190-85) who recorded 20 points. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Le Mans moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Nancy and Orleans. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Chalon who have the same record. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play next round against Cholet trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Le Mans will try to continue on its current victory against first ranked Chalon/Saor at home.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Chalon/Saor as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Gravelines-Dunkerque) loss. Chalon/Saor smashed 4th ranked Entente Orleans 45 at home 94-62. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Entente Orleans 45. It was a good game for American swingman Blake Schilb (200-83, college: Loyola, IL, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) who led his team to a victory with 26 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists (went 9 for 9 at the free throw line !!!). Alade Aminu contributed with 16 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Naturalized American forward Georgi Joseph (197-82, college: Kennesaw St.) replied with 12 points and 9 rebounds for Entente Orleans 45. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Chalon/Saor have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Gravelines. Entente Orleans 45 at the other side keeps the fourth place with six games lost. They share the position with Le Mans and Nancy. Entente Orleans 45 will play next round against ASVEL trying to get back on the winning streak. Chalon/Saor will try to continue on its current victory against sixth ranked Le Mans on the road.

Rest of the games of round 18 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Le Havre was defeated by Poitiers in a road game 82-64. Nanterre smashed Hyeres-Toulon at home 102-60. Roanne won against Cholet on the opponent's court 73-61. ASVEL managed to outperform Strasbourg in a home game 88-86. Dijon recorded a loss to Pau-Lacq-Orthez on the road 59-57.
The best stats of 18th round was 32 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists by Adrien Moerman of Nancy.

Poitiers led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to STB Le Havre's 34. The best player for the winners was the former international power forward Pape Badiane (207-80, college: Cleveland St.) who scored 15 points and 9 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). American point guard James J.J. Miller (180-79, college: N.Carolina A&T, agency: Higher Vision Sports) chipped in 14 points and 4 assists. Four Poitiers players scored in double figures. Poitiers' coach Rudy Nelhomme used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was American forward Brian Boddicker (204-81, college: Texas) who recorded 14 points and 5 rebounds and naturalized American swingman Nicholas Pope (196-84, college: Oklah.Baptist) added 17 points respectively.

Cholet - Roanne 61-73
