It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in ProA, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders.

Round 6 in ProA means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Le Mans where host Le Mans (5-1) beat league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque (4-2) 76-61 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Gravelines-Dunkerque. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Le Mans led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Le Mans outrebounded Gravelines-Dunkerque 38-27 including 24 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was international forward Charles Kahudi (197-86, agency: Beo Basket) who scored 18 points and 5 rebounds. Brazilian power forward Joao Paulo Batista (207-81, college: Gonzaga) chipped in 10 points and 7 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was center Ousmane Camara (202-89) who recorded 13 points and 5 rebounds. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach rotated eleven players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Le Mans have a solid four-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side dropped to the second place with two games lost. They share the position with 5 other teams. They were replaced at the leadership position by Le Mans. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play next round against Sluc Nancy trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Le Mans will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked JDA Dijon on the road.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Chalon/Saor (4-2) against tenth ranked Boulazac Basket (3-3) on Monday night. Visiting Chalon/Saor was defeated by Boulazac Basket in a tough game in Boulazac 69-77. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. It was a good game for American Amadi McKenzie (201-86, college: Tenn Tech) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds. Osiris Eldridge contributed with 20 points for the winners. American forward Shelden Williams (206-83, college: Duke) replied with 20 points and 9 rebounds for Chalon/Saor. Boulazac Basket moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Dijon and Nanterre. Defending champion Chalon/Saor keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with 5 other teams. Boulazac Basket will play against JSF Nanterre (#10) on the road in the next round. Chalon/Saor will play against Cholet (#6) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Chorale de Roanne managed to get a second victory, breaking the two-game losing streak on Saturday night. This time they outleveled fifth-ranked JSF Nanterre 94-64. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 30-point difference suggests that Chorale de Roanne is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of JSF Nanterre. Pape-Philippe Amagou scored 16 points and 7 assists to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was David Lighty with 13 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Chorale de Roanne (2-4) moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser JSF Nanterre dropped to the eighth position with three games lost. They share it with Dijon and Boulazac. Chorale de Roanne will meet higher ranked Strasbourg IG (#3) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. JSF Nanterre will play against Boulazac Basket (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Poitiers, where higher ranked Strasbourg IG (4-2) lost to fifteenth ranked Poitiers (2-4) in a road game 70-80. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Strasbourg IG. Lamine Kante notched 20 points to lead the effort. Poitiers moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Strasbourg IG at the other side dropped to the second position with two games lost. Poitiers' next round opponent will be Limoges CSP Elite (#13) on the road. Strasbourg IG will play against Chorale de Roanne (#14).

Rest of the games of round 6 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Limoges was defeated by Paris-Levallois in a road game 84-74. Le Havre was beaten by Dijon at home 73-77. Orleans lost to ASVEL on the opponent's court 80-92. Nancy unfortunately lost to Cholet in a home game 75-89.


Boulazac - Chalon 77-69

Very important is a road loss of second ranked Chalon/Saor (4-2) against tenth ranked Boulazac Basket (3-3) on Monday night. Visiting Chalon/Saor was defeated by Boulazac Basket in a tough game in Boulazac 69-77. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. Chalon/Saor was ahead by 1 point at the halftime before a 49-40 second half run of Boulazac Basket. It was a good game for American Amadi McKenzie (201-86, college: Tenn Tech) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds. The other American import guard Osiris Eldridge (191-88, college: Illinois St.) contributed with 20 points for the winners. American forward Shelden Williams (206-83, college: Duke) replied with 20 points and 9 rebounds and forward Joffrey Lauvergne (210-91) added 11 points and 11 rebounds in the effort for Chalon/Saor. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Boulazac Basket moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Dijon and Nanterre. Defending champion Chalon/Saor keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with 5 other teams. Boulazac Basket will play against JSF Nanterre (#10) on the road in the next round.

Paris-Levallois - Limoges 84-74

There was no surprise when 11th ranked Limoges CSP Elite (2-4) was defeated on the road by seventh ranked Paris-Levallois (4-2) 84-74. The hosts were ahead by 6 points but lost the second period ending it with a 4-point deficit before their 28-14 run, which allowed them to win the game. Paris-Levallois forced 20 Limoges CSP Elite turnovers. American forward Sean May (206-84, college: N.Carolina) notched 25 points and 7 rebounds to lead the effort and the other American import forward Jawad Williams (204-83, college: N.Carolina) supported him with 12 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Even 18 points and 8 rebounds by naturalized Congolese forward Nobel Boungou Colo (202-88) did not help to save the game for Limoges CSP Elite. The former international guard Joseph Gomis (180-78) added 16 points and 5 assists. Limoges CSP Elite's coach tested eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Paris-Levallois moved-up to second place, which they share with 5 other teams. Limoges CSP Elite lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the eleventh position with four games lost.

Le Havre - Dijon 73-77

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both tenth ranked JDA Dijon and 9th ranked STB Le Havre had identical 2-3 record. But STB Le Havre was not able to use a home court advantage and lost to the opponent from JDA Dijon 77-73. 24 personal fouls committed by STB Le Havre helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.
