Jackson
There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Pau-Lacq-Orthez defeated 3rd ranked Le Portel at home 89-85. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Le Portel. The hosts trailed by 4 points after three quarters before their 23-15 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Pau-Lacq-Orthez made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. Pau-Lacq-Orthez outrebounded Le Portel 38-23 including 28 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was American forward Charles Jackson (203-F-87, agency: Court Side, college: Hawaii-Pacific) who had a double-double by scoring 29 points and 19 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). The other American import forward Brian Boddicker (204-81, college: Texas) chipped in 24 points and 4 assists. Jamaican-American Sherman Gay (201-82, college: Loyola Mary) produced 26 points, 8 rebounds and 4 blocks for the guests. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have a solid three-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Le Portel at the other side dropped to the fifth place with three games lost. They share the position with Chalons-Reims and Lille. Le Portel will play next round against Lille Metropole trying to get back on the winning streak. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will try to continue on its current victory against eleventh ranked Saint Vallier on the road.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Olympique Antibes (6-2) against twelfth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (4-4) on Saturday night. Visiting Olympique Antibes was crushed by SO Maritime Boulogne in Boulogne 116-81. Center Mouhammadou Jaiteh (206-94) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Jonathan Rousselle contributed with 20 points and 4 assists for the winners. American swingman Anthony Hilliard (193-86, college: Elizabeth City) replied with 21 points and 4 assists for Olympique Antibes. Olympique Antibes' coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. SO Maritime Boulogne moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Olympique Antibes at the other side keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with Evreux and Maurienne. SO Maritime Boulogne will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Olympique Antibes will play at home against SPO Rouen and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Denain Voltaire can celebrate finally their first win this season after seven consecutive loses. The victory is especially important as they edged much higher ranked Charleville-Mezieres (2-6)on the road game in Charleville 87-84 on Friday. Worth to mention a great performance of John Flowers who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 7 rebounds. Fabien Calvez responded with 18 points, 7 assists and 5 steals. Charleville-Mezieres' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Denain Voltaire (1-7) left bottom position moving up to seventeenth place, which they share with Bordeaux. It was Charleville-Mezieres' sixth loss in a row. Newly promoted team dropped to the fifteenth position with six games lost. They share it with Hyeres-Toulon. Denain Voltaire will meet at home higher ranked JL Bourg (#8) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Charleville-Mezieres will play against ALM Evreux (#4) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
The game in Rouen was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked ALM Evreux (6-2) played at the court of 8th ranked SPO Rouen (4-4). ALM Evreux managed to secure a 4-point victory 71-67. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of SPO Rouen. The game was dominated by American players. The winners were led by Jeremiah Wood who had that evening a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds. ALM Evreux have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Antibes and Maurienne. SPO Rouen at the other side keeps the eighth position with four games lost. ALM Evreux's next round opponent will be Charleville-Mezieres (#15) at home which should be an easy win for them. SPO Rouen will play against the league's second-placed Olympique Antibes (#2).
We should mention about the upset which took place in Bourg, where higher ranked Lille Metropole (5-3) lost to eleventh ranked JL Bourg (4-4) in a road game 64-73 on Friday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Lille Metropole. The best player for the winners was L.D. Williams who scored 21 points and 9 rebounds. JL Bourg moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Loser Lille Metropole dropped to the fifth position with three games lost. JL Bourg will face bottom-ranked Denain Voltaire (#18) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Lille Metropole will play against Le Portel (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 8 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Nantes defeated Hyeres-Toulon in a road game 86-68. Maurienne smashed St Vallier at home 86-66. St Quentin lost to Fos Ouest on the opponent's court 77-83. Bordeaux was outscored by Chalons-Reims in a home game 63-88.

SO Maritime Boulogne shot the lights out from three nailing 15 long-distance shots on high 60.0 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 29 assists.

American swingman Anthony Hilliard (193-86, college: Elizabeth City) replied with 21 points and 4 assists and naturalized Senegalese center Moussa Badiane (205-81, college: E.Carolina) added 15 points and 7 rebounds in the effort for Olympique Antibes. Five SO Maritime Boulogne and four Olympique Antibes players scored in double figures. Olympique Antibes' coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. SO Maritime Boulogne moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Olympique Antibes at the other side keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with Evreux and Maurienne. SO Maritime Boulogne will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.

Charleville-Mezieres trailed by 13 points at halftime and as many as 24 after three quarters before a 32-11 last quarter charge cut the deficit to 84-87 at the end of the game.

Hyeres-Toulon - Nantes 68-86

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fifteenth ranked Nantes and 16th ranked Hyeres-Toulon had identical 2-5 record. But Hyeres-Toulon was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Nantes 86-68 on Friday night. The guests trailed by 6 points at the halftime before their 57-33 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game.
