Ricardo
Greer
ProA round 16 caused change at the leadership position. Sixth defeat of league's leader Paris-Levallois (10-6) against third ranked Strasbourg IG (11-5) 88-73 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Paris-Levallois. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game was mostly controlled by Strasbourg IG. Paris-Levallois managed to win fourth quarter 18-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Paris-Levallois 38-26 including a 28-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. Strasbourg IG looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists comparing to just 8 passes made by Paris-Levallois' players. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Dominican swingman Ricardo Greer (197-78, college: Pittsburgh) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 10 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists. The former international center Alexis Ajinca (215-88, agency: Priority Sports) contributed with 19 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American forward Sean May (206-84, college: N.Carolina) replied with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds for Paris-Levallois. Strasbourg IG have an impressive six-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Gravelines and Le Mans. Paris-Levallois at the other side dropped to the fourth place with six games lost. They share the position with Chalon. They were replaced at the leadership position by Strasbourg. Paris-Levallois will play next round against Chorale de Roanne trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Strasbourg IG will try to continue on its current victory against second ranked Le Mans on the road.
Another interesting game for Entente Orleans 45 (8-8) which hosted 5th ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (9-7). Eighth ranked Entente Orleans 45 won 88-80. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international point guard Marc-Antoine Pellin (169-87) who helped to win the game recording 11 points and 6 assists and Caleb Green who added 17 points during the contest. At the losing side the former international guard Edwin Jackson (191-89) responded with 28 points and 6 rebounds. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Entente Orleans 45 moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Dijon. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket at the other side dropped to the sixth position with seven games lost. Entente Orleans 45 will play against bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket (#16) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against JSF Nanterre (#13) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Limoges CSP Elite (#10) forced the game against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#4) into an overtime, but lost by eleven points 80-91 on Saturday night. The game took place in Limoges. But the guests from Gravelines were better at the end. The winners were led by Dwight Buycks who scored that evening 23 points and 5 assists. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Even a double-double of 16 points and 15 rebounds by Jon Brockman did not help to save the game for Limoges CSP Elite. Gravelines-Dunkerque have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Le Mans and Strasbourg. Newly promoted Limoges CSP Elite dropped to the ninth place with nine games lost. They share the position with 4 other teams. Gravelines-Dunkerque will meet Sluc Nancy (#10) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Limoges CSP Elite will play against Cholet and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Cholet (7-9) and STB Le Havre (6-10), which took place in Le Havre. Higher ranked Cholet was outleveled in a road game by fourteenth ranked STB Le Havre 87-68. Bernard King fired 23 points and 7 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. STB Le Havre maintains fourteenth position with 6-10 record. Cholet at the other side keeps the ninth place with nine games lost. STB Le Havre's next round opponent will be Poitiers (#15) on the road.

Other games in round 16 were not that significant. Poitiers was beaten by Nanterre on the road 85-74. Dijon won against Nancy on its own court 72-62. Le Mans managed to outperform Boulazac in a road game 77-68. Roanne lost to defending champion Chalon at home 53-65.
The most impressive performance of 16th round was 21 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists by David Lighty of Nanterre.

Le Havre - Cholet 87-68
