The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, extra overtimes and favorites losing the games.

ProB round 10 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Olympique Antibes (7-3) against eighteenth ranked Bordeaux (2-8) 98-89 was the most important game of the last round. Olympique Antibes trailed by 13 points after 3 quarters before a 25-21 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 89-98 at the end of the game. Bordeaux shot 60.3 percent from the field. They shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 54.5 percentage. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Thomas Coleman (205-88, college: N.Carolina A&T) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 8 rebounds (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Guard Matthieu Guichard (188-88) contributed with 21 points for the winners. Bordeaux's coach Jean-Marc Dupraz used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) replied with 30 points and 5 rebounds (made all of his nine free throws !!!) for Olympique Antibes. Bordeaux maintains eighteenth position with 2-8 record. Olympique Antibes at the other side dropped to the third place with three games lost. They share the position with Le Portel. They were replaced at the leadership position by Evreux. Olympique Antibes will play next round against Hyeres-Toulon trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Bordeaux will try to continue on its current victory against first ranked ALM Evreux on the road.
Sixteenth ranked Denain Voltaire won an overtime thriller edging higher ranked Lille Metropole by one point 85-86. The game took place in Lille. But the guests from Denain were better at the end. American players dominated the game. Forward John Flowers (200-89, college: W.Virginia, agency: KMG Sports Management) scored 26 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Marcus Kitts chipped in 10 points and 20 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side power forward Steffon Bradford (198-78, college: Nebraska, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) responded with 18 points and 9 rebounds. Lille Metropole's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Denain Voltaire have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Hyeres-Toulon and Charleville. Lille Metropole lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh position with five games lost. They share it with 4 other teams. Denain Voltaire will play against higher ranked Le Portel (#4) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Lille Metropole will play against Nantes and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Aix-les-Bains was also quite interesting. Second ranked ALM Evreux (8-2) played at the court of 6th ranked Aix-Maurienne (6-4). ALM Evreux managed to secure a 8-point victory 86-78 on Saturday. Steeve Ho You Fat notched 21 points and 7 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 22 points and 8 rebounds by Wayne Chism did not help to save the game for Aix-Maurienne. ALM Evreux have an impressive five-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Loser Aix-Maurienne dropped to the fifth place with four games lost. They share the position with Chalons-Reims. ALM Evreux will meet at home bottom-ranked Bordeaux (#18) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Aix-Maurienne will play against Fos Ouest (#12) and hope to secure a win.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Chalons-Reims (6-4) and JL Bourg (5-5), which took place in Bourg. Higher ranked Chalons-Reims lost to eleventh ranked JL Bourg in a road game 80-88. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Chalons-Reims. David Monds fired a double-double by scoring 26 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. JL Bourg moved-up to seventh place, which they share with 4 other teams. Chalons-Reims at the other side keeps the fifth position with four games lost. JL Bourg's next round opponent will be Saint Vallier (#10) on the road. Chalons-Reims will play against Charleville-Mezieres (#15).
Another upset was a game between Saint Vallier (5-5) and Charleville-Mezieres (3-7), which took place in Charleville. Higher ranked Saint Vallier lost to fifteenth ranked Charleville-Mezieres in a road game 61-69 on Friday. It was a very good performance for Tafari Toney who helped to win the game recording 11 points and 7 rebounds. Charleville-Mezieres' coach Francis Charneux allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Newly promoted Charleville-Mezieres maintains fifteenth position with 3-7 record, which they share with Hyeres-Toulon and Denain. Loser Saint Vallier dropped to the seventh place with five games lost. Charleville-Mezieres will face higher ranked Chalons-Reims (#5) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Other games in round 10 were not that significant. St Quentin was smashed by Hyeres-Toulon on the road 84-61. Pau-Lacq-Orthez destroyed Boulogne on its own court 101-76. Nantes was outscored by Le Portel in a road game 103-80. Rouen recorded a loss to Fos Ouest at home 78-84.
The most impressive performance of 10th round was 27 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks by Brian Boddicker of Pau-Lacq-Orthez.
