The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Sixth-ranked Lille Metropole (12-10) was very close to win a game against first ranked Boulazac Basket (18-4) on Tuesday. Boulazac Basket managed to secure only two-point victory 75-73. However their fans expected much easier game. Lille Metropole was trailing by 5 points at halftime but managed to get 2-point lead after three quarters before a 17-13 charge of Boulazac Basket, which allowed them to win the game. American players dominated the game. Worth to mention a great performance of power forward Darryl Monroe (202-86, college: George Mason) who helped to win the game recording 17 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Amadi McKenzie (201-86) contributed with 13 points and 7 assists for the winners. Power forward Steffon Bradford (199-78, college: Nebraska, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) replied with 16 points and 8 rebounds for Lille Metropole. Lille Metropole's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Boulazac Basket maintains first position with 18-4 record, which they share with Limoges. Lille Metropole at the other side keeps the sixth place with ten games lost. Boulazac Basket is looking forward to face JL Bourg (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Lille Metropole will play against Olympique Antibes and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Tenth-ranked Saint Vallier (10-12) used its home court advantage to challenge second ranked Limoges CSP Elite (18-4). The visitors from Limoges managed to secure only two-point victory 76-74. However their fans expected much easier game. American guard Kyle McAlarney (185-87, college: Notre Dame) scored 21 points and 5 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Christophe Massie chipped in 11 points and 14 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side American point guard Kyle Shiloh (191-85, college: Nevada) responded with 20 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists. Limoges CSP Elite have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Boulazac. Saint Vallier lost sixth consecutive game. They dropped to the eleventh place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Evreux. Limoges CSP Elite will play against Quimper UJAP (#17) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Saint Vallier will play against Aix-Maurienne (#5) in Aix-les-Bains and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Chalons-Reims (15-7) against fourth ranked Fos Ouest (15-7) on Tuesday night. Visiting Chalons-Reims was defeated by Fos Ouest in a tough game in Fos 66-75. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Chalons-Reims. Bill Clark notched 32 points and 7 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 18 points and 9 rebounds by Gary Chathuant did not help to save the game for Chalons-Reims. Fos Ouest moved-up to third place, which they share with defeated Chalons-Reims. Fos Ouest will meet Bordeaux (#10) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chalons-Reims will play against JA Vichy (#18) and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Antibes. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of higher ranked Bordeaux (11-11) to fifteenth ranked Olympique Antibes (9-13) 81-80 on Tuesday evening. Ferdinand Prenom fired 17 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Olympique Antibes moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Le Portel. Bordeaux lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the seventh position with 11 games lost. Olympique Antibes' next round opponent will be higher ranked Lille Metropole (#6) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Rouen. Sixteenth ranked SPO Rouen (8-14) saved a 2-point victory at home edging higher ranked JL Bourg (11-11) 68-66 on Tuesday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of JL Bourg. It was a very good performance for Jason Siggers who helped to win the game recording 24 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. SPO Rouen moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Denain. Loser JL Bourg keeps the seventh position with 11 games lost. SPO Rouen will face higher ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (#8) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Other games in round 22 were not that significant. Nantes beat Le Portel on the road 91-85. Quimper won against Maurienne on its own court 91-85. Boulogne unfortunately lost to Vichy in a road game 73-86. Denain was rolled over Evreux at home 73-95.
The most impressive performance of 22th round was 27 points and 12 rebounds by Jeremiah Wood of Evreux.
