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

ProB round 9 caused change at the leadership position. Second defeat of league's leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez (7-2) against tenth ranked Saint Vallier (5-4) 90-82 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Pau-Lacq-Orthez. The hosts trailed by 11 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 8 points. Saint Vallier made 23-of-27 free shots (85.2 percent) during the game. They also forced 20 Pau-Lacq-Orthez turnovers. 27 personal fouls committed by Pau-Lacq-Orthez helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for American Corey Rouse (204-84, college: E.Carolina, agency: Court Side) who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 9 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). His fellow American import swingman Roy Booker (191-84, college: SE Missouri St.) contributed with 24 points (went 9 for 9 at the free throw line !!!) for the winners. Naturalized Senegalese forward Antoine Mendy (198-83) answered with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds for Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Saint Vallier moved-up to seventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side still keeps top position with two games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Antibes who have the same record. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play next round against SO Maritime Boulogne trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Saint Vallier will try to continue on its current victory against fifteenth ranked Charleville-Mezieres on the road.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Olympique Antibes as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Pau-Lacq-Orthez) loss. Olympique Antibes defeated 10th ranked SPO Rouen at home 85-74. American players dominated the game. Forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 15 rebounds for the winners and Anthony Hilliard chipped in 23 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. The best for the losing side was guard O'Darien Bassett (191-86, college: Troy) with 23 points and 7 assists. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Evreux. SPO Rouen at the other side dropped to the eleventh place with five games lost. They share the position with Nantes and Bourg. SPO Rouen will play next round against Fos Ouest trying to get back on the winning streak. Olympique Antibes will try to continue on its current victory against eighteenth ranked Bordeaux on the road.
An interesting game was also tough home defeat of 7th ranked Lille Metropole in a game versus Le Portel (#6) 85-75. Ronnie Taylor nailed 17 points, 7 assists and 4 steals for the winning side. Jason Siggers came up with 16 points and 5 assists for Lille Metropole in the defeat. Lille Metropole's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Le Portel (6-3) moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Chalons-Reims and Maurienne. Loser Lille Metropole keeps the seventh position with four games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Le Portel will meet at home Nantes (#13) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Lille Metropole will play against Denain Voltaire (#16) and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Aix-Maurienne (6-3) against fourteenth ranked Nantes (4-5) on Tuesday night. Visiting Aix-Maurienne was edged by Nantes in a tough game in Nantes 92-95. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Aix-Maurienne. American players dominated also this game. The best player for the winners was LaMarshall Corbett who scored 22 points. Nantes' coach Guillaume Quintard allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Nantes moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Bourg and Rouen. Aix-Maurienne at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. Nantes' next round opponent will be higher ranked Le Portel (#4) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Aix-Maurienne will play against ALM Evreux where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Bottom-ranked Denain Voltaire managed to get the second consecutive victory on Tuesday night. This time they won against eighth-ranked JL Bourg 85-80. And what about a second win in a row after ...seven consecutive loses. It was a good game for John Flowers who led his team to a victory with 26 points and 5 steals. Denain Voltaire's coach Marc Silvert used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Denain Voltaire (2-7) moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Hyeres-Toulon and Charleville. Loser JL Bourg dropped to the eleventh position with five games lost. Denain Voltaire will face higher ranked Lille Metropole (#8) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 9: Hyeres-Toulon was beaten by Chalons-Reims on the road 89-76. Boulogne won against Fos Ouest on its own court 84-77. Charleville unfortunately lost to Evreux in a road game 63-81. St Quentin rolled over Bordeaux at home 89-66.
The most impressive performance of 9th round was 22 points and 11 rebounds by David Monds of Bourg.



Chalons-Reims - Hyeres-Toulon 89-76

No shocking result in a game when sixth ranked Chalons-Reims (6-3) beat at home 15th ranked Hyeres-Toulon (2-7) 89-76 on Tuesday. It was a very close game until the last quarter, when Chalons-Reims's pressure prevailed and they won that period 23-16 extending their advantage to 13 points. They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Hyeres-Toulon's 20 and made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a good game for forward Justin Burrell (206-88, college: St.John's) who led his team to a victory with 18 points and 5 rebounds. Forward Tyren Johnson (202-88, college: La-Lafayette) contributed with 12 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Chalons-Reims' coach Nikola Antic used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. Swingman Jared Newson (195-84, college: Tenn-Martin, agency: Pro One Sports) answered with 28 points and 7 rebounds and power forward Terence Dials (206-83, college: Ohio St.) added 12 points and 9 rebounds in the effort for Hyeres-Toulon. Five Chalons-Reims and four Hyeres-Toulon players scored in double figures. Chalons-Reims have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Maurienne and Le Portel. Hyeres-Toulon lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifteenth position with seven games lost. Chalons-Reims will face JL Bourg (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Hyeres-Toulon will play against Saint-Quentin and be promoted back to the ProA just one year after relegation.

Boulogne - Fos Ouest 84-77

Very expected game when 14th ranked Fos Ouest (3-6) lost on the road to ninth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (5-4) 84-77 on Tuesday. Fos Ouest was trailing by 1 point at halftime but managed to get 5-point lead after three quarters before a 25-13 charge of SO Maritime Boulogne, which allowed them to win the game.

Evreux - Charleville 81-63

Very predictable result when fourth ranked ALM Evreux (7-2) won against at home 15th ranked Charleville-Mezieres (2-7) 81-63 on Tuesday. The game was mostly controlled by ALM Evreux. Charleville-Mezieres was better in second period 17-15. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. ALM Evreux forced 22 Charleville-Mezieres turnovers and outrebounded them 38-27 including 26 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Charleville-Mezieres' players. It was a good game for American power forward Jeremiah Wood (200-85, agency: Court Side) who led his team to a victory with 18 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. His fellow American import point guard Clevin Hannah (180-87, college: Wichita St., agency: Court Side) contributed with 16 points for the winners. Five ALM Evreux players scored in double figures.
