The most important game in the last round took place in Saint Vallier between third ranked ALM Evreux (11-5) and thirteenth ranked Saint Vallier (7-9) on Wednesday night. ALM Evreux was defeated by Saint Vallier on the road 79-89. The game was mostly controlled by Saint Vallier. ALM Evreux managed to win second period 20-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Saint Vallier made 19-of-23 free shots (82.6 percent) during the game. They also forced 21 ALM Evreux turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Ivorian guard Errick Craven (188-83, college: USC) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points, 11 assists and 4 steals. American Corey Rouse (204-84, college: E.Carolina, agency: Court Side) contributed with 17 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Saint Vallier's coach Laurent Pluvy used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American power forward Jeremiah Wood (200-85, agency: Court Side) replied with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 14 rebounds for ALM Evreux. Saint Vallier moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Rouen. ALM Evreux at the other side keeps the third position with five games lost. They share it with Chalons-Reims and Le Portel. Saint Vallier is looking forward to face higher ranked Chalons-Reims (#4) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. ALM Evreux will play against Le Portel and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
ProB top team - Pau-Lacq-Orthez (13-3) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed eighteenth ranked Bordeaux (2-14) 109-64. Worth to mention a quality performance of naturalized Senegalese forward Antoine Mendy (198-83) who helped to win the game recording 21 points and Jean-Frederic Morency who added 13 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side American forward Nate Carter (201-83, college: Oklahoma) responded with 16 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 13-3 record. Bordeaux lost sixth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 14 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Fos Ouest (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Bordeaux will play against Aix-Maurienne (#8) in Aix-les-Bains and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Aix-les-Bains between Hyeres-Toulon and Aix-Maurienne. Seventeenth ranked Hyeres-Toulon (6-10) got a very close victory on the road over higher ranked Aix-Maurienne (8-8). Hyeres-Toulon managed to escape with a 1-point win 65-64 on Wednesday evening. The winners were led by Landing Sane who had that evening a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds. Even 23 points and 4 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) by Simon Darnauzan did not help to save the game for Aix-Maurienne. Hyeres-Toulon have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Nantes and Lille. Loser Aix-Maurienne dropped to the seventh position with eight games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Hyeres-Toulon will meet at home higher ranked JL Bourg (#10) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Aix-Maurienne will play against Bordeaux and hope to secure a win.

Other games in round 16 were not that significant. Rouen beat Charleville on the road 73-69. Bourg won against Fos Ouest on its own court 86-77. Chalons-Reims managed to outperform Nantes in a road game 73-66. Le Portel managed to beat St Quentin at home 95-77. Antibes defeated Denain on the opponent's court 95-84. Lille was beaten by Boulogne in a home game 83-92.
The most impressive performance of 16th round was 27 points and 13 rebounds by Mickael Var of Boulogne.


Charleville - Rouen 69-73

No shocking result in a game when eleventh ranked SPO Rouen (7-9) beat on the road 15th ranked Charleville-Mezieres (5-11) 73-69 on Wednesday. The guests trailed by 6 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 73-69. The winners were led by center Moustapha Diarra (206-87, college: USF) who scored that evening 18 points and 6 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) and American guard O'Darien Bassett (191-86, college: Troy) supported him with 8 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. Even 25 points and 6 rebounds by American forward Patrick Sanders (198-85, college: Cal-Irvine) did not help to save the game for Charleville-Mezieres. Lithuanian forward Vaidotas Pridotkas (200-84) added 18 points and 8 rebounds for lost side. Charleville-Mezieres' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. SPO Rouen maintains eleventh position with 7-9 record, which they share with St Vallier. Newly promoted Charleville-Mezieres dropped to the sixteenth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Denain. SPO Rouen will meet at home Lille Metropole (#14) in the next round. Charleville-Mezieres will play against SO Maritime Boulogne and hope to secure a win.

Le Portel's coach Eric Girard allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.
