The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Chalon/Saor (9-5) at the home court on Friday night. Hosts were defeated by Strasbourg IG (9-5) 73-66. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 8-5 record before this meeting. Chalon/Saor was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. American forward John Shurna (205-90, college: Northwestern, agency: Priority Sports) scored 19 points and 6 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international center Alexis Ajinca (215-88, agency: Priority Sports) chipped in 17 points and 5 rebounds during the contest.
