Jeremiah
Wood
Eighth-ranked Saint-Quentin (9-10) used its home court advantage to challenge second ranked ALM Evreux (14-5) on Friday. The visitors from Evreux managed to secure only three-point victory 87-84. However their fans expected much easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Jeremiah Wood who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 25 points and 12 rebounds. Saint-Quentin's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. ALM Evreux have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain second place with 14-5 record behind leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez, which they share with Chalons-Reims. Newly promoted Saint-Quentin dropped to the eleventh position with ten games lost. ALM Evreux will face SO Maritime Boulogne (#6) at home in the next round. Saint-Quentin will play against Nantes (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games in round 19 were not that significant. Maurienne beat St Vallier on the road 98-81. Bourg won against Bordeaux on its own court 93-77. Lille was outscored by Pau-Lacq-Orthez in a road game 95-74. Nantes managed to beat Boulogne at home 94-88. Fos Ouest was defeated by Le Portel on the opponent's court 73-67. Denain was beaten by Rouen in a home game 61-72. Chalons-Reims won against Antibes on the road 82-75.
The most impressive performance of 19th round was 37 points (!!!) and 5 steals by Wilbert Brown of Maurienne.



St Vallier - Maurienne 81-98

No shocking result in a game when ninth ranked Aix-Maurienne (10-9) beat on the road 13th ranked Saint Vallier (7-12) 98-81 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Aix-Maurienne. Saint Vallier was better in third quarter 29-23. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Aix-Maurienne looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American Wilbert Brown (200-84, college: Niagara, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) who helped to win the game recording 37 points (!!!) and 5 steals (made all of his seven free throws). Meredis Houmounou (188-88) contributed with 10 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American-Ivorian guard Errick Craven (188-83, college: USC) answered with 16 points and 7 assists and power forward Harry Disy (201-84, college: Louisiana Tech) added 15 points (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) in the effort for Saint Vallier. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Aix-Maurienne moved-up to seventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Saint Vallier lost third consecutive game.

Bourg - Bordeaux 93-77

Very expected game when 18th ranked Bordeaux (2-17) lost on the road to tenth ranked JL Bourg (10-9) 93-77 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by JL Bourg. Bordeaux was better in second period 21-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. JL Bourg forced 19 Bordeaux turnovers.

American power forward David Monds (205-83, college: Oklahoma St.) contributed with 16 points (perfect from the field making all six shots) for the winners.

Pau-Lacq-Orthez - Lille 95-74

Very predictable result when first ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (15-4) rolled over at home 13th ranked Lille Metropole (7-12) 95-74 on Friday. The game without a history. Pau-Lacq-Orthez led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Lille Metropole's 26 and made 22-of-28 free shots (78.6 percent) during the game.

The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pau-Lacq-Orthez maintains first place with 15-4 record. Lille Metropole at the other side keeps the thirteenth position with 12 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will face Denain Voltaire (#16) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Lille Metropole will play against Bordeaux.
