NM1 Round 8: Cognac loses the game and top position - Nov 10, 2012


POSTED BY:

There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

There was a change at the NM1 leadership position after last games. Round 8 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Cognac (6-1). They were defeated by third ranked Souffelweyersheim (6-1) 72-57 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Cognac. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Souffelweyersheim looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized Senegalese swingman Mouhamadou M'Bodji (193-81) who helped to win the game recording 16 points and 7 assists and Senegalese power forward Abdoulaye N'Diaye (210-84, college: USC) who added 12 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. American center Ian Caskill (207-81, college: JMU) responded with 9 points and 13 rebounds. Souffelweyersheim moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Cognac. Cognac will play next round against Quimper UJAP trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Souffelweyersheim will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked Saint Chamond on the road.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Blois as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Blois smashed bottom-ranked CFBB at home 102-81. The winners were led by center Jonathan Tornato (210-89) who scored that evening 26 points and 9 rebounds and Daviin Davis supported him with 25 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Blois' coach Hugues Occansey felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even 31 points and 9 rebounds by Damien Inglis (203-95) did not help to save the game for CFBB. Undefeated Blois (6-0) have an impressive six-game winning streak. As mentioned above they took over a top position. CFBB at the other side still closes the standings with eight games lost. CFBB will play next round against Angers BC 49 trying to get back on the winning streak. Blois will try to continue on its current victory against thirteenth ranked La Rochelle on the road.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-8) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their eighth consecutive match to eleventh ranked Rueil (3-5) 109-70 on Tuesday evening. The best player for the winners was Moise Diame who had a double-double by scoring 26 points and 11 rebounds. Damien Inglis produced 18 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the hosts. Despite that victory Rueil went down to twelfth position due to points difference, which they share with La Rochelle. Loser CFBB still closes the standings with eight games lost. Rueil will meet at home higher ranked Orchesien BC (#4) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. CFBB will play against Angers BC 49 (#7) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
An interesting game took place in Challans where higher ranked Saint Chamond (3-4) was upset on the court of fourteenth ranked Vendee Challans (2-5) 88-82. Johan Rathieuville orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Saint Chamond's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Vendee Challans maintains fourteenth position with 2-5 record. Saint Chamond at the other side dropped to the ninth place with four games lost. Vendee Challans' next round opponent will be Chartres (#15) on the road.
An interesting game took place in Monaco where higher ranked Monaco (3-3) was upset on its own court by thirteenth ranked La Rochelle (3-5) 72-58 on Saturday. Worth to mention a great performance of Jarryd Cole who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. La Rochelle moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Rueil. Monaco at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the seventh position with three games lost. La Rochelle will face league's leader Blois at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 8: Rueil lost to Quimper on the opponent's court 59-74. Orchy outscored Vichy in a home game 75-56. Chartres recorded a loss to Sorgues on the road 63-70.


Souffel - Cognac 72-57

There was a change at the NM1 leadership position after last games. Round 8 most important game was a defeat of league's leader Cognac (6-1). They were defeated by third ranked Souffelweyersheim (6-1) 72-57 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Cognac. It was a key game for the second position in the league. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Souffelweyersheim looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized Senegalese swingman Mouhamadou M'Bodji (193-81) who helped to win the game recording 16 points and 7 assists and Senegalese power forward Abdoulaye N'Diaye (210-84, college: USC) who added 12 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Four Souffelweyersheim players scored in double figures. American center Ian Caskill (207-81, college: JMU) responded with 9 points and 13 rebounds and guard Cedric Bertorelle (198-78) scored 7 points and 8 rebounds. Souffelweyersheim moved-up to second place, which they share with defeated Cognac. Cognac will play next round against Quimper UJAP trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Souffelweyersheim will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked Saint Chamond on the road.

Quimper - Rueil 74-59

Very expected game when 11th ranked Rueil (3-5) was defeated on the road by fifth ranked Quimper UJAP (5-2) 74-59 on Saturday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Quimper UJAP outrebounded Rueil 35-24 including 28 on the defensive glass. Worth to mention a great performance of Spanish point guard Carlos Cherry (184-79, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 4 assists and Nigerian forward Corey Raji (198-88, college: Boston Coll., agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who added 20 points during the contest. Four Quimper UJAP players scored in double figures. Center Moise Diame (205-86) responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks and Serbian forward Slobodan Ocokoljic (204-80, college: Weber St., agency: TSS Management) scored 16 points and 6 rebounds. Quimper UJAP maintains fifth position with 5-2 record. Loser Rueil dropped to the twelfth place with five games lost. Quimper UJAP will face higher ranked Cognac (#3) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Rueil will play against Orchesien BC (#4) in Orchies.

Orchy - Vichy 75-56

Rather predictable result in Orchies where fourth ranked Orchesien BC (5-1) smashed 6th ranked JA Vichy (4-4) 75-56 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Orchesien BC. JA Vichy was better in fourth quarter 21-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding JA Vichy to just 7 points in third quarter. Orchesien BC made 17-of-20 free shots (85.0 percent) during the game. They also forced 24 JA Vichy turnovers. JA Vichy was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized American Tony Stanley (193-77, college: Dayton) who helped to win the game recording 15 points and 6 rebounds and point guard Emilien Barbry (188-83) who added 12 points and 4 assists during the contest. Orchesien BC's coach Philippe Namyst used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. point guard Benjamin Thomas (181-82) responded with 18 points and 4 assists and American power forward Justin Reynolds (204-88, college: Texas A&M-CC) scored 7 points and 7 rebounds. Orchesien BC maintains fourth position with 5-1 record. Loser JA Vichy keeps the sixth place with four games lost. Orchesien BC will face Rueil (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. JA Vichy will play against Monaco (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Challans - St Chamond 88-82

An interesting game took place in Challans where higher ranked Saint Chamond (3-4) was upset on the court of fourteenth ranked Vendee Challans (2-5) 88-82. It looked good early as Saint Chamond took an 4-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Vendee Challans had a 24-19 second period charge getting the lead and Saint Chamond was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 82-88. Vendee Challans forced 19 Saint Chamond turnovers. It was a great shooting night for Vendee Challans especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 56.3 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 28 assists. Guard Johan Rathieuville (177-85) orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Forward Fabien Herard (198-79) contributed with 24 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Four Vendee Challans players scored in double figures. Forward Jean-Stephane Rinna (205-83) replied with 20 points and 5 rebounds and point guard Romain Tillon (180-82, agency: ACMT) added 19 points and 4 assists in the effort for Saint Chamond. Saint Chamond's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Vendee Challans maintains fourteenth position with 2-5 record.
