POSTED BY:

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Chalon/Saor as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Chalon/Saor defeated 5th ranked Paris-Levallois at home 91-79. The hosts trailed by 1 point after three quarters before their 25-12 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Chalon/Saor looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. The best player for the winners was American-Montenegrin guard Brion Rush (186-84, college: Grambling St., agency: Beo Basket) who scored 30 points and 5 assists. American swingman Blake Schilb (200-83, college: Loyola, IL, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) chipped in 10 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was American forward Sean May (206-84, college: N.Carolina) who recorded a double-double by scoring 21 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists. Chalon/Saor have a solid series of three victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Le Mans. Paris-Levallois at the other side dropped to the fourth place with four games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. Paris-Levallois will play next round against strong Gravelines-Dunkerque trying to get back on the winning streak. Chalon/Saor will try to continue on its current victory against sixteenth ranked Chorale de Roanne at home.
Bottom-ranked Entente Orleans 45 managed to get a third victory. This time they won against fourteenth-ranked Boulazac Basket 85-67. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 18-point difference suggests that Entente Orleans 45 is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. It was a good game for the former international point guard Marc-Antoine Pellin (169-87) who led his team to a victory with 16 points. Brian Greene contributed with 13 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. American Justin Hawkins (201-85, college: N.Mexico St.) answered with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds for Boulazac Basket. Entente Orleans 45 (3-6) moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with 3 other teams including defeated Boulazac Basket. Boulazac Basket lost third consecutive game. Entente Orleans 45 will play against higher ranked JSF Nanterre (#11) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Boulazac Basket will play against the league's second-placed Le Mans where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
The game in Nanterre was also quite interesting. Second ranked Le Mans (7-2) played at the court of 8th ranked JSF Nanterre (4-5). Le Mans managed to secure a 6-point victory 80-74 on Saturday. Cam Long stepped up and scored 20 points for the winners. The best for the losing side was Christophe Massie with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Le Mans keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Chalon. Loser JSF Nanterre keeps the eighth place with five games lost. They share the position with 4 other teams. Le Mans will meet at home Boulazac Basket (#13) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. JSF Nanterre will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#15) and hope to secure a win.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Poitiers, where 4th placed ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (5-4) lost to twelfth ranked Poitiers (4-5) in a road game 72-78. Anthony Smith nailed 26 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Poitiers moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket at the other side keeps the fourth position with four games lost. Poitiers' next round opponent will be STB Le Havre (#8) on the road. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against JDA Dijon (#9).
The game with biggest result difference took place in Limoges. Local Limoges CSP Elite (4-5) was outscored by tenth ranked STB Le Havre (4-5) 88-60 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Limoges CSP Elite. The best player for the winners was Vlad Moldoveanu who scored 16 points and 7 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. STB Le Havre moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Limoges CSP Elite. STB Le Havre will face Poitiers (#10) at home in the next round.

Other games of round 9 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Roanne was defeated by Dijon in JDA Dijon 71-61. Gravelines smashed Cholet at home 88-67. Nancy lost to Strasbourg on the opponent's court 66-72.
The best stats of 9th round was 27 points and 9 rebounds by Gerald Fitch of Strasbourg.


Poitiers - ASVEL 78-72

We should mention about the upset which took place in Poitiers, where 4th placed ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (5-4) lost to twelfth ranked Poitiers (4-5) in a road game 72-78. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 23-11. But ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket won second period 22-21. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a great shooting night for Poitiers especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.4 percentage. American guard Anthony Smith (196-86, college: Liberty, agency: Pro One Sports) nailed 26 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side and American-Italian guard Anthony Dobbins (194-81, college: Richmond) accounted for 16 points and 5 assists. Naturalized Mali forward Amara Sy (202-81) came up with 10 points and 8 rebounds and American point guard Michael Thompson (177-89, college: Northwestern) added 19 points respectively for ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Poitiers moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket at the other side keeps the fourth position with four games lost. Poitiers' next round opponent will be STB Le Havre (#8) on the road. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against JDA Dijon (#9).
