Carter
NM1 is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 17 rounds left.

NM1 top team - Orchesien BC (12-3) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed eleventh ranked Angers BC 49 (5-10) in Orchies 88-65. The game without a history. Orchesien BC led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 18-of-23 free shots (78.3 percent) during the game. Orchesien BC looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists comparing to just 7 passes made by Angers BC 49's players. American guard Russell Carter (196-85, college: Notre Dame) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds for the winners and center Olivier Gouez (217-84) chipped in 18 points (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). American forward Anthony Hill (204-88, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) responded with 18 points and 6 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Orchesien BC maintains first place with 12-3 record. Angers BC 49 lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the twelfth position with ten games lost. They share it with Challans. Orchesien BC will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Angers BC 49 will play on the road against Monaco (#7) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-15) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their 15th consecutive match to fifth ranked JA Vichy (11-4) 90-68. American power forward Justin Reynolds (204-88, college: Texas A&M-CC) nailed a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds for the winning side and Guillaume Pons accounted for 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Damien Inglis (203-95) came up with 19 points and 7 assists for CFBB in the defeat. JA Vichy have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. CFBB at the other side still closes the standings with 15 games lost. JA Vichy will play against La Rochelle (#6) at home in the next round. CFBB will play against Rueil (#9) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Fourteenth-ranked Union Rennes (4-11) gave a tough game to fourth ranked Cognac (11-4) on Saturday. Cognac managed to secure only one-point victory 63-62. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Dejan Sencanski who scored 12 points and 8 rebounds. Omar Sall produced 7 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals for the guests. Union Rennes' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Cognac moved-up to second place, which they share with 3 other teams. Union Rennes lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted Union Rennes keeps the fourteenth position with 11 games lost. They share it with St Chamond. Cognac will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Union Rennes will play against Saint Chamond (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 17: Challans lost to La Rochelle on the opponent's court 69-83. Souffel managed to outperform Sorgues in a home game 71-62. Chartres managed to beat St Chamond on the road 63-57. Monaco defeated Blois on its own court 75-67.


La Rochelle - Challans 83-69

Very expected game when 13th ranked Vendee Challans (5-10) was defeated on the road by sixth ranked La Rochelle (9-6) 83-69 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by La Rochelle. Vendee Challans managed to win fourth quarter 14-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. La Rochelle dominated down low during the game scoring 50 of its points in the paint compared to Vendee Challans' 30 and made 21-of-25 free shots (84.0 percent) during the game. The best player for the winners was American forward Jarryd Cole (204-88, college: Iowa) who scored 22 points and 5 rebounds. Forward Jeffrey Dalmat (191-91) chipped in 10 points and 6 rebounds. point guard Samir Mekdad (188-86) produced 19 points and 6 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) and forward Fabien Herard (198-79) added 14 points and 5 rebounds respectively for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. The victory was the fourth consecutive win for La Rochelle. Newly promoted La Rochelle maintains sixth place with 9-6 record. Loser Vendee Challans dropped to the twelfth position with ten games lost. They share it with Angers BC 49. La Rochelle will meet higher ranked JA Vichy (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Vendee Challans will play against Blois (#8) and hope to secure a win.
