There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games.

Round 12 in ProB means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Pau where host Pau-Lacq-Orthez (10-2) edged league's leader ALM Evreux (9-3) 79-78 on Friday evening. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of ALM Evreux. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 7 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 5-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 79-78. Pau-Lacq-Orthez made 16-of-20 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. The best player for the winners was American forward Charles Jackson (203-F-87, agency: Court Side, college: Hawaii-Pacific) who scored 13 points and 9 rebounds. Naturalized Tunisian swingman Sami Driss (194-82) chipped in 10 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's coach Claude Bergeaud used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the other side the best for losing team was American swingman Drake Reed (196-87, college: Austin Peay St.) who recorded a double-double by scoring 26 points and 11 rebounds. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader. ALM Evreux at the other side dropped to the second place with three games lost. They share the position with Antibes. They were replaced at the leadership position by Pau-Lacq-Orthez. ALM Evreux will play next round against Lille Metropole trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will try to continue on its current victory against fourth ranked Chalons-Reims on the road.
The game in Aix-les-Bains was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Olympique Antibes (9-3) played at the court of 6th ranked Aix-Maurienne (7-5). Olympique Antibes managed to secure a 6-point victory 81-75. The game was dominated by American players. It was a good game for forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 16 rebounds. Anthony Hilliard contributed with 24 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Wilbert Brown (200-84, college: Niagara, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) replied with 26 points and 8 rebounds for Aix-Maurienne. Olympique Antibes moved-up to second place, which they share with Evreux. Aix-Maurienne at the other side keeps the sixth position with five games lost. They share it with Boulogne. Olympique Antibes will play against Charleville-Mezieres (#16) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Aix-Maurienne will play against Saint-Quentin (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Charleville, where higher ranked Nantes (5-7) lost to fifteenth ranked Charleville-Mezieres (4-8) in a road game 76-86 on Friday. Worth to mention a great performance of Patrick Sanders who helped to win the game recording 30 points and 7 rebounds. The best for the losing side was James Mathis with 12 points and 9 rebounds. Nantes' coach Guillaume Quintard rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Charleville-Mezieres maintains fifteenth position with 4-8 record, which they share with Denain. Loser Nantes dropped to the tenth place with seven games lost. They share the position with 4 other teams. Charleville-Mezieres will meet league's second-placed Olympique Antibes on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Nantes will play against JL Bourg (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Denain, where higher ranked Saint Vallier (6-6) lost to sixteenth ranked Denain Voltaire (4-8) in a road game 83-90. The winners were led by John Flowers who scored that evening 24 points and 6 rebounds. Saint Vallier's coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Denain Voltaire moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Charleville. Saint Vallier at the other side keeps the eighth position with six games lost. Denain Voltaire's next round opponent will be higher ranked Fos Ouest (#12) on the road and it may be quite challenging game.
An interesting game took place in Le Portel, where higher ranked Le Portel (8-4) was outleveled at home by fourteenth ranked SPO Rouen (5-7) 86-65 on Friday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Le Portel. The best player for the winners was Wendell McKines who scored 27 points and 7 rebounds. SPO Rouen moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Loser Le Portel keeps the fourth position with four games lost. SPO Rouen will face bottom-ranked Bordeaux (#18) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Le Portel will play against Saint Vallier (#9).

Rest of the games of round 12 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
St Quentin defeated Bourg in Saint-Quentin 96-79. Hyeres-Toulon was smashed by Fos Ouest at home 72-91. Boulogne won against Bordeaux on the opponent's court 101-93. Lille unfortunately lost to Chalons-Reims in a home game 55-67.
The best stats of 12th round was 30 points and 7 rebounds by Corey McIntosh of Hyeres-Toulon.


Bourg - St Quentin 79-96

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both tenth ranked Saint-Quentin and 9th ranked JL Bourg had identical 5-6 record. But JL Bourg was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Saint-Quentin 96-79 on Saturday night. JL Bourg was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. They outrebounded JL Bourg 45-33 including 16 on the offensive glass. The best player for the winners was power forward Julien Lesieu (201-83) who had a double-double by scoring 17 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists. point guard Olivier Romain (182-88) chipped in 16 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was American power forward David Monds (205-83, college: Oklahoma St.) who recorded 20 points and 6 rebounds and Gambian forward Moses Sonko (197-83, college: Co.Carolina, agency: Two Points) added 14 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists respectively. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Saint-Quentin (6-6) moved-up to eighth place, which they share with St Vallier. Loser JL Bourg dropped to the tenth position with seven games lost. Saint-Quentin will face higher ranked Aix-Maurienne (#7) in Aix-les-Bains in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. JL Bourg will play on the road against Nantes.

The game was mostly controlled by Charleville-Mezieres. Nantes managed to win fourth quarter 31-27. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Charleville-Mezieres made 29-of-37 free shots (78.4 percent) during the game. They also forced 19 Nantes turnovers.

Hyeres-Toulon - Fos Ouest 72-91

No shocking result in a game when thirteenth ranked Fos Ouest (5-7) smashed on the road 17th ranked Hyeres-Toulon (3-9) 91-72 on Friday. The game without a history.
