Carter
The most exciting game of round 16 in the NM1 took place in Blois. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 6th ranked Blois (8-6) to first ranked Orchesien BC (11-3) 76-73 on Saturday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 16-8. But Blois won second period 28-23. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Russell Carter (196-85, college: Notre Dame) who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 7 rebounds. point guard Emilien Barbry (188-83) contributed with 4 points and 8 assists for the winners. Orchesien BC's coach Philippe Namyst used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American forward Daviin Davis (193-85, college: Weber St.) replied with 16 points and 7 rebounds for Blois. Orchesien BC maintains first position with 11-3 record. Blois at the other side keeps the sixth place with six games lost. They share the position with La Rochelle. Orchesien BC are looking forward to face Angers BC 49 (#11) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Blois will play against Monaco (#9) and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Cognac (10-4) against thirteenth ranked Chartres (5-9) on Saturday night. Visiting Cognac was defeated by Chartres in Chartres 77-64. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Cognac. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Guillaume Merie (198-83) who helped to win the game recording 13 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists and Julien Sauret who added 14 points and 5 assists during the contest. Chartres' coach Raphael Gaume allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side guard Cedric Bertorelle (198-78) responded with 16 points. Chartres moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Angers BC 49 and Challans. Cognac at the other side keeps the third position with four games lost. They share it with Vichy and Souffel. Chartres will play against Saint Chamond (#15) on the road in the next round. Cognac will play against Union Rennes (#14) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 14th consecutive match to eighth ranked La Rochelle (8-6) 74-64 on Saturday evening. The winners were led by Jarryd Cole who scored that evening 18 points and 5 rebounds. Even a double-double of 21 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists by Damien Inglis did not help to save the game for CFBB. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. La Rochelle have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Blois. Loser CFBB still closes the standings with 14 games lost. La Rochelle will meet at home Vendee Challans (#13) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. CFBB will play against JA Vichy and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very interesting game took place in Challans. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of higher ranked Monaco (7-7) to thirteenth ranked Vendee Challans (5-9) 77-76 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Monaco. Johan Rathieuville fired 17 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Monaco's coach Jean-Michel Senegal rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Vendee Challans moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Angers BC 49 and Chartres. Newly promoted Monaco dropped to the ninth position with seven games lost. Vendee Challans' next round opponent will be higher ranked La Rochelle (#6) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Other games in round 16 were not that significant. Quimper beat Angers BC 49 on the road 67-58. Sorgues won against St Chamond on its own court 94-84. Rueil managed to outperform Rennes in a road game 82-69.
The most impressive performance of 16th round was 30 points and 6 rebounds by Ryan Zamroz of Sorgues.
