Buycks
ProA is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 15 rounds left.

Round 15 in ProA means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Gravelines where host Gravelines-Dunkerque (10-5) crushed league's leader Chalon/Saor (9-6) 102-69 on Saturday evening. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 9 points at the halftime before their 73-31 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Gravelines-Dunkerque made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Gravelines-Dunkerque made 7 blocks. The best player for the winners was American point guard Dwight Buycks (190-89, college: Marquette) who scored 22 points and 7 assists. The former international center Ludovic Vaty (206-88, college: Moraine Valley CC) chipped in 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was American forward Shelden Williams (206-83, college: Duke) who recorded 18 points and 7 rebounds. Gravelines-Dunkerque keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 3 other teams. Defending champion Chalon/Saor dropped to the fifth place with six games lost. They share the position with ASVEL. They were replaced at the leadership position by Paris-Levallois. Chalon/Saor will play next round against Chorale de Roanne trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Gravelines-Dunkerque will try to continue on its current victory against tenth ranked Limoges CSP Elite on the road.
The game in Le Mans was also worth to mention about. 4th placed ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (9-6) played at the court of fifth ranked Le Mans (10-5). Le Mans managed to secure a 4-point victory 64-60. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket. It was a key game for the top position in the league. It was a good game for American guard Khalid El-Amin (178-79, college: Connecticut) who led his team to a victory with 13 points and 6 assists. Joao Paulo Batista contributed with 11 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. The former international guard Paccelis Morlende (189-81) answered with 12 points for ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Le Mans have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with 3 other teams. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket at the other side dropped to the fifth place with six games lost. They share the position with Chalon. Le Mans will play against bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket (#16) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#8) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Cholet was also quite interesting. Third ranked Paris-Levallois (10-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Cholet (7-8). Paris-Levallois defeated Cholet 94-82 on Saturday. It was a great evening for Sean May who led his team to a victory scoring 16 points and 8 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Marcus Goree with 19 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Paris-Levallois keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Cholet keeps the seventh place with eight games lost. They share the position with 5 other teams. Paris-Levallois will meet Strasbourg IG (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Cholet will play against STB Le Havre (#15) and hope to secure a win.

Other games of round 15 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:

Nancy - Poitiers 72-66

No shocking result in a game when ninth ranked Sluc Nancy (7-8) defeated at home 14th ranked Poitiers (5-10) 72-66 on Saturday. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. Poitiers was trailing by 3 points at halftime but managed to get 11-point lead after three quarters before a 25-8 charge of Sluc Nancy, which allowed them to win the game.
