Charles
Jackson
Saint-Quentin (#8) forced the game against Pau-Lacq-Orthez (#2) into an overtime, but lost by three points 98-101 on Friday night. The game took place in Saint-Quentin. But the guests from Pau were better at the end. It was a great evening for Charles Jackson (203-F-87, agency: Court Side, college: Hawaii-Pacific) who led his team to a victory scoring 26 points and 7 rebounds (on 11-of-12 shooting from the field). Pau-Lacq-Orthez (9-2) keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Evreux. Newly promoted Saint-Quentin dropped to the ninth place with six games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will face league's leader ALM Evreux at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Saint-Quentin will play against JL Bourg (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 11: Bourg lost to St Vallier on the opponent's court 85-103. Chalons-Reims outscored Charleville in a home game 86-63. Hyeres-Toulon was rolled over Antibes on the road 104-54. Nantes defeated Lille on its own court 85-77. Bottom-ranked Bordeaux was beaten by Evreux in a road game 89-78. Fos Ouest lost to Maurienne at home 83-91. Le Portel managed to outperform Denain on the opponent's court 90-74.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 33 points (!!!) and 18 rebounds by Mouhammadou Jaiteh of Boulogne.

St Vallier - Bourg 103-85

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both eighth ranked Saint Vallier and 7th ranked JL Bourg had identical 5-5 record. This time Saint Vallier used a home court advantage and beat the opponent from Bourg 103-85 on Saturday night. The game was mostly controlled by Saint Vallier. JL Bourg was better in fourth quarter 29-22. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 25-of-33 free shots (75.8 percent) during the game. Saint Vallier had a 33-22 advantage in offensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 58.3 percentage. Saint Vallier looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. JL Bourg was plagued by 29 personal fouls down the stretch. It was a great evening for American-Ivorian guard Errick Craven (188-83, college: USC) who led his team to a victory scoring 21 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. American swingman Roy Booker (191-84, college: SE Missouri St.) helped adding 24 points. American swingman L.D. Williams (193-88, college: Wake Forest) responded with 16 points and 5 rebounds and power forward Alexis Tanghe (208-90, agency: Beo Basket) scored 15 points and 5 rebounds. Both teams had five players each who scored in double figures. Saint Vallier (6-5) moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Boulogne. JL Bourg at the other side dropped to the ninth position with six games lost. Saint Vallier will face Denain Voltaire (#16) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

Antibes - Hyeres-Toulon 104-54

Not a big story in a game when 17th ranked Hyeres-Toulon (3-8) was rolled over on the road by third ranked Olympique Antibes (8-3) 104-54 on Friday. The game without a history. Olympique Antibes led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Hyeres-Toulon to just 6 points in first quarter. Olympique Antibes dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Hyeres-Toulon's 28 and made 25-of-29 free shots (86.2 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Hyeres-Toulon 45-17 including a 35-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. Olympique Antibes looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Hyeres-Toulon's players. Americans were the main players on the court. It was a great evening for point guard Trevor Huffman (185-79, college: Kent St., agency: Interperformances) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 6 rebounds and 10 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) helped adding 25 points and 6 assists. Four Olympique Antibes players scored in double figures. Olympique Antibes' coach Alain Weisz felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Swingman Jared Newson (195-84, college: Tenn-Martin, agency: Pro One Sports) responded with 15 points and 8 rebounds and guard Corey McIntosh (183-85, college: Iowa St.) scored 10 points and 7 assists. Olympique Antibes maintains third place with 8-3 record behind leader Evreux, which they share with Le Portel. Hyeres-Toulon at the other side dropped to the fifteenth position with eight games lost. Olympique Antibes will face Aix-Maurienne (#6) in Aix-les-Bains in the next round. Hyeres-Toulon will play at home against Fos Ouest (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
