The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Round 9 in NM1 means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in La Rochelle where host La Rochelle (4-5) beat league's leader Blois (6-1) 74-67 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Blois. The hosts trailed by 6 points after three quarters before their 24-11 charge, which allowed them to win the game. La Rochelle made 19-of-24 free shots (79.2 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was American forward Jarryd Cole (204-88, college: Iowa) who scored 22 points and 8 rebounds. British forward Andrew Thomson (205-84, college: Catawba) chipped in 19 points and 5 rebounds. La Rochelle's coach Gregory Thielin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was center Jonathan Tornato (210-89) who recorded a double-double by scoring 15 points and 11 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). La Rochelle have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to ninth place. Blois at the other side dropped to the third position with one game lost. They share it with Orchy. They were replaced at the leadership position by Souffel. Blois will play next round against JA Vichy trying to make it back to the top of the standings. La Rochelle will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Angers BC 49 on the road.
Important game to mention about took place in Saint Chamond. Second ranked Souffelweyersheim (7-1) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging 11th ranked Saint Chamond (3-5) 69-68 on Saturday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. It was a good game for guard Jeremy Tschamber (192-84) who saved his team from a defeat with 8 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Jerome Cazenobe contributed with 11 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Forward Jean-Stephane Rinna (205-83) answered with 23 points and 7 rebounds for Saint Chamond. Saint Chamond's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Souffelweyersheim keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Cognac. Saint Chamond lost third consecutive game. They keep the eleventh place with five games lost. They share the position with Rennes. Souffelweyersheim will play against Vendee Challans (#15) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Saint Chamond will play against Quimper UJAP (#5) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-9) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 81-73 loss to seventh ranked Angers BC 49 (4-3) in Paris on Saturday evening. Maxime Chupin stepped up with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Angers BC 49's coach Vincent Lavandier allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. The best for the losing side was Damien Inglis with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 13 rebounds. Angers BC 49 maintains seventh place with 4-3 record. Loser CFBB still closes the standings with nine games lost. Angers BC 49 will meet at home La Rochelle (#9) in the next round. CFBB will have a break next round.
A very interesting game took place in Chartres. It ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 14th ranked Vendee Challans (2-6) to fifteenth ranked Chartres (2-6) 73-70 in the fight for the fourteenth place. Julien Sauret nailed 15 points, 7 assists and 4 steals for the winning side. Chartres' coach Raphael Gaume allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Chartres moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Challans. Chartres' next round opponent will be higher ranked Union Rennes (#11) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Rennes. Local Union Rennes (3-5) lost to tenth ranked Sorgues (4-4) 77-60 on Saturday night. The best player for the winners was Xavier Pasut who scored 15 points and 9 rebounds. Union Rennes' coach tested ten players seeing no chance for a win.
