There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team and favorites losing the games.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Le Mans (6-2) at the home court on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by Chalon/Saor (6-2) 80-66. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Le Mans. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 5-2 record before this meeting. The game was mostly controlled by Chalon/Saor. Le Mans managed to win third quarter 15-12. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Chalon/Saor looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of international forward Ilian Evtimov (201-83, college: N.Carolina St., agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording 13 points and 6 rebounds and American point guard Kevin Houston (178-85, college: Long Beach St.) who added 10 points and 9 assists during the contest. International forward Charles Kahudi (197-86, agency: Beo Basket) responded with 17 points. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with defeated Le Mans. Chalon/Saor is looking forward to face Paris-Levallois (#6) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Le Mans will play against JSF Nanterre (#8) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (5-3) against thirteenth ranked STB Le Havre (3-5) on Saturday night. Visiting ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket was defeated by STB Le Havre in a tough game in Le Havre 77-81. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket. The winners were led by American point guard D.J. Thompson (173-85, college: Appalachian St.) who scored that evening 16 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists and Vlad Moldoveanu supported him with 17 points and 5 rebounds. Even 21 points and 4 assists by the former international guard Edwin Jackson (191-89) did not help to save the game for ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket. STB Le Havre moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 5 other teams. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket at the other side dropped to the third position with three games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. STB Le Havre will play against higher ranked Limoges CSP Elite (#9) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Poitiers (#13) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Poitiers managed to get a third victory on Saturday night. This time they edged fifth-ranked JSF Nanterre 70-68. The best player for the winners was Ahmad Nivins who scored 20 points. Chris Warren produced 13 points for the guests. JSF Nanterre's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Poitiers (3-5) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 5 other teams. Loser JSF Nanterre dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. They share it with Limoges and Strasbourg. Poitiers will meet at home higher ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#3) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. JSF Nanterre will play against the league's second-placed Le Mans (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
A very interesting game took place in Cholet. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 10th ranked Boulazac Basket (3-5) to sixth ranked Cholet (5-3) 68-67 on Saturday evening. Marcus Goree saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 10 rebounds. Cholet moved-up to third place, which they share with 3 other teams. Newly promoted Boulazac Basket keeps the tenth position with five games lost. Cholet's next round opponent will be Gravelines-Dunkerque (#4) on the road. Boulazac Basket will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#16).
Seventh ranked Paris-Levallois (5-3) crushed at home 8th ranked Strasbourg IG (4-4) by 17 points 89-72, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Antoine Diot who helped to win the game recording 33 points (!!!) (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Paris-Levallois moved-up to third place, which they share with 3 other teams. Strasbourg IG lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. Paris-Levallois will face league's leader Chalon/Saor on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Strasbourg IG will play against Sluc Nancy (#11).

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 8: Limoges won against Roanne on the opponent's court 71-67. Nancy managed to outperform Dijon in a home game 78-74. Gravelines managed to beat Orleans on the road 75-58.


Le Mans - Chalon 66-80

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Le Mans (6-2) at the home court on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by Chalon/Saor (6-2) 80-66. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Le Mans. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 5-2 record before this meeting. The game was mostly controlled by Chalon/Saor. Le Mans managed to win third quarter 15-12. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Chalon/Saor looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of international forward Ilian Evtimov (201-83, college: N.Carolina St., agency: Interperformances) who helped to win the game recording 13 points and 6 rebounds and American point guard Kevin Houston (178-85, college: Long Beach St.) who added 10 points and 9 assists during the contest. Four Chalon/Saor players scored in double figures. International forward Charles Kahudi (197-86, agency: Beo Basket) responded with 17 points and American guard Khalid El-Amin (178-79, college: Connecticut) scored 13 points and 5 assists.

The guests trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 42-37 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game.

American point guard Chris Warren (178-88, college: Mississippi) produced 13 points and his fellow American import swingman David Lighty (195-88, college: Ohio St.) added 6 points and 6 rebounds respectively for the guests. Four JSF Nanterre players scored in double figures. JSF Nanterre's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Poitiers (3-5) moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 5 other teams. Loser JSF Nanterre dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. They share it with Limoges and Strasbourg. Poitiers will meet at home higher ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#3) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. JSF Nanterre will play against the league's second-placed Le Mans (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
