The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

ProB round 13 caused change at the leadership position. Third defeat of league's leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez (10-3) against fourth ranked Chalons-Reims (9-4) 87-78 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Pau-Lacq-Orthez trailed by 12 points after 3 quarters before a 24-21 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 78-87 at the end of the game. Chalons-Reims made 24-of-27 free shots (88.9 percent) during the game. 26 personal fouls committed by Pau-Lacq-Orthez helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Tyren Johnson (202-88, college: La-Lafayette) who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 8 rebounds. His fellow American import forward Justin Burrell (206-88, college: St.John's) contributed with 18 points for the winners. American forward Brian Boddicker (204-81, college: Texas) answered with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 10 rebounds for Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's coach Claude Bergeaud rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Chalons-Reims have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 9-4 record, which they share with Le Portel. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Antibes who have the same record. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play next round against league's leader Olympique Antibes trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Chalons-Reims will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Aix-Maurienne in Aix-les-Bains.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Olympique Antibes as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Pau-Lacq-Orthez) loss. Olympique Antibes smashed 16th ranked Charleville-Mezieres at home 109-81. American forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 26 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners and Anthony Hilliard chipped in 18 points and 8 assists. At the losing side American forward Patrick Sanders (198-85, college: Cal-Irvine) responded with 22 points and 8 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. Olympique Antibes 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 Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Evreux. Newly promoted Charleville-Mezieres dropped to the fifteenth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Denain. Charleville-Mezieres will play next round against Saint-Quentin trying to get back on the winning streak. Olympique Antibes will try to continue on its current victory against second ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez on the road.
The game in Saint-Quentin supposed to be also quite interesting. 7th ranked Aix-Maurienne (7-6) played at the court of eighth ranked Saint-Quentin (7-6). Saint-Quentin smashed Aix-Maurienne 90-58 on Friday. Julien Lesieu nailed 17 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side. Saint-Quentin's coach Sebastien Lambert felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Wilbert Brown came up with 22 points and 6 rebounds for Aix-Maurienne in the defeat. Saint-Quentin moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Maurienne. Saint-Quentin will meet Charleville-Mezieres (#16) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Aix-Maurienne will play against Chalons-Reims (#4) and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Nantes. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 14th ranked Nantes (5-8) to eleventh ranked JL Bourg (6-7) 69-66 on Friday evening. Jerome Sanchez fired a double-double by scoring 10 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. Nantes' coach Guillaume Quintard tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. JL Bourg moved-up to ninth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Nantes at the other side dropped to the thirteenth position with eight games lost. JL Bourg's next round opponent will be higher ranked ALM Evreux (#3) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Nantes will play against Denain Voltaire (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between sixth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (8-5) and 17th ranked Hyeres-Toulon (3-10) in Boulogne on Saturday ended with biggest points difference. SO Maritime Boulogne outscored guests from Toulon 102-69. It was a very good performance for Mouhammadou Jaiteh who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 27 points and 10 rebounds. SO Maritime Boulogne have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain sixth place with 8-5 record. Hyeres-Toulon lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventeenth position with ten games lost. SO Maritime Boulogne will face higher ranked Le Portel (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hyeres-Toulon will play against SPO Rouen (#11) and be promoted back to the ProA just one year after relegation.

Other games in round 13 were not that significant. Le Portel beat St Vallier on the road 88-81. Evreux won against Lille on its own court 86-80. Denain was outscored by Fos Ouest in a road game 90-62. Rouen rolled over Bordeaux at home 86-67.
