Mehdi
Labeyrie-Hafsi
Top ranked Orchesien BC (10-3) recorded its third loss in Orchies on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by eighth ranked Monaco (7-6) 85-79. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 19-13. But Orchesien BC won second period 26-24. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was naturalized Tunisian power forward Mehdi Labeyrie-Hafsi (203-78) who scored 24 points and 8 rebounds. Guard Anthony Christophe (190-83) chipped in 24 points. At the other side the best for losing team was American guard Russell Carter (196-85, college: Notre Dame) who recorded 22 points and 5 rebounds. Orchesien BC's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Monaco have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to seventh place, which they share with La Rochelle. Orchesien BC at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. They share it with Cognac. Monaco is looking forward to face Vendee Challans (#13) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Orchesien BC will play against Blois (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Quimper. Fourth ranked Quimper UJAP (10-4) saved a 1-point victory at home edging 6th ranked Blois (8-5) 82-81 on Saturday evening. It was a good game for Nigerian forward Corey Raji (198-88, college: Boston Coll., agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) who saved his team from a defeat with 22 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Carlos Cherry contributed with 9 points and 9 assists for the winners. American forward Daviin Davis (193-85, college: Weber St.) answered with 22 points and 5 rebounds for Blois. Blois' coach Hugues Occansey tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Quimper UJAP moved-up to third place, which they share with Vichy and Souffel. Blois at the other side keeps the sixth position with five games lost. Quimper UJAP will play against Angers BC 49 (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Blois will play against the league's leader Orchesien BC (#1) in Orchies and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-13) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 83-55 loss to fifteenth ranked Vendee Challans (4-9) in Paris on Saturday evening. It was a great evening for Fabien Herard who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). The best for the losing side was Ywen Smock with 12 points. CFBB's coach Jacques Commeres gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Vendee Challans moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser CFBB still closes the standings with 13 games lost. Vendee Challans will meet at home higher ranked Monaco (#8) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. CFBB will play against La Rochelle (#7) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Souffel.. Local Souffelweyersheim (10-4) outscored 11th ranked Angers BC 49 (5-8) 82-53. It was a quality performance for Frederic Broliron who led the winners and scored 16 points and 5 rebounds. Souffelweyersheim's coach Stephane Eberlin felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Souffelweyersheim moved-up to third place, which they share with Vichy and Quimper. Angers BC 49 at the other side keeps the eleventh position with eight games lost. Souffelweyersheim will have a break next round. Angers BC 49 will play at home against Quimper UJAP (#5).

Other games of round 15 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Sorgues was defeated by Cognac in a road game 87-74. Rueil beat Chartres at home 60-48. Rennes lost to Vichy on the opponent's court 46-59.
The best stats of 15th round was 21 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists by Ian Caskill of Cognac.


Cognac - Sorgues 87-74

There was no surprise when 10th ranked Sorgues (6-7) was defeated on the road by fifth ranked Cognac (10-3) 87-74. The game was mostly controlled by Cognac. Sorgues was better in third quarter 28-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They shot the lights out from three nailing 13 long-distance shots on high 54.2 percentage. Cognac players were unselfish on offense dishing 29 assists. It was an exceptional evening for American center Ian Caskill (207-81, college: JMU) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 21 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Guard Cedric Bertorelle (198-78) accounted for 17 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the winning side.

Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Cognac used an opportunity after Orchy lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position. Sorgues lost third consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with seven games lost. Cognac's next round opponent will be Chartres (#12) on the road which should be an easy win for them. Sorgues will play against Saint Chamond.

CFBB - Challans 55-83

Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-13) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 83-55 loss to fifteenth ranked Vendee Challans (4-9) in Paris on Saturday evening. The game without a history. Vendee Challans led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. It was a great evening for forward Fabien Herard (198-79) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Center Nils Gouacide (208-84) helped adding 23 points. The best for the losing side was Ywen Smock (203-96) with 12 points and Damien Inglis (203-95) scored 9 points and 5 rebounds. CFBB's coach Jacques Commeres gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Vendee Challans moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with 3 other teams.

Rueil - Chartres 60-48

No shocking result in a game when tenth ranked Rueil (7-7) defeated at home 12th ranked Chartres (4-9) 60-48. The game was mostly controlled by Rueil. Chartres was better in third quarter 12-11. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 17-of-22 charity shots (77.3 percent) during the game. It was an exceptional evening for Serbian forward Slobodan Ocokoljic (204-80, college: Weber St., agency: TSS Management) who led the winners and scored 16 points. Alexis Desespringalle (192-91) accounted for 9 points and 8 rebounds for the winning side.

They keep the twelfth position with nine games lost. Rueil's next round opponent will be Union Rennes (#15) on the road which should be theoretically an easy game. Chartres will play against the league's second-placed Cognac where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
