The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Chalon/Saor (7-3) at the home court on Monday night. Hosts were defeated by sixteenth ranked Chorale de Roanne (4-6) 65-56. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. The guests trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 65-56. Worth to mention a great performance of American Matt Howard (203-89, college: Butler) who helped to win the game recording 8 points and 8 rebounds. The former international guard Yohann Sangare (193-83) contributed with 9 points and 5 assists for the winners. International forward Ilian Evtimov (201-83, college: N.Carolina St., agency: Interperformances) replied with 20 points and 5 rebounds for Chalon/Saor. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Chorale de Roanne moved-up to ninth place, which they share with 7 other teams. Defending champion Chalon/Saor still keeps top position with three games lost. They share it with Le Mans. Chorale de Roanne is looking forward to face higher ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#3) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Chalon/Saor will play against JSF Nanterre and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Cholet. Fifth ranked Cholet (6-4) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 6th ranked Strasbourg IG (5-5) 77-75 on Saturday evening. Swingman Rudy Jomby (197-88) scored 8 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Carl Ona-Embo chipped in 10 points during the contest. Cholet's coach Jean Manuel Sousa allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. At the losing side center Romain Duport (215-86) responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 15 rebounds. Cholet moved-up to third place, which they share with 3 other teams.

Paris-Levallois will meet JDA Dijon (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against Boulazac Basket (#10) and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked Le Mans (7-3) against thirteenth ranked Boulazac Basket (4-6) on Saturday night.
