David Denave
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with extra overtimes and favorites losing the games.

Sixteenth-ranked Denain Voltaire (5-15) gave a tough game to first ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (16-4) on Friday. The visitors from Pau managed to secure only two-point victory 65-63. However their fans expected much easier game. Denain Voltaire was trailing by 5 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 16-13 charge of Pau-Lacq-Orthez, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of David Denave (195-85) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 9 rebounds and power forward Mory Correa (204-79, college: Wyoming) who added 13 points, 8 rebounds and 4 blocks during the contest. American power forward Marcus Kitts (205-89, college: William & Mary) responded with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 17 rebounds. Denain Voltaire's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 16-4 record. Denain Voltaire lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the sixteenth place with 15 games lost. They share the position with Charleville. Pau-Lacq-Orthez are looking forward to face Nantes (#12) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Denain Voltaire will play against Aix-Maurienne (#7) in Aix-les-Bains and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Chalons-Reims (14-6) against ninth ranked Fos Ouest (11-9) on Friday night. Host Chalons-Reims was defeated by Fos Ouest in Reims 65-53. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Chalons-Reims. The winners were led by American power forward John Williamson (199-86, college: Cincinnati) who scored that evening 22 points and 7 rebounds and Chris Davis supported him with 20 points and 5 rebounds. Even a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds by American forward Justin Burrell (206-88, college: St.John's) did not help to save the game for Chalons-Reims. Fos Ouest moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Maurienne and Bourg. Chalons-Reims at the other side keeps the third position with six games lost. They share it with Antibes and Le Portel. Fos Ouest will play against Saint Vallier (#14) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chalons-Reims will play against SPO Rouen (#10) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Eighteenth-ranked Bordeaux (2-18) gave a tough game to thirteenth ranked Lille Metropole (8-12) on Friday. Lille Metropole managed to secure only two-point victory 89-87. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Jason Siggers who scored 29 points and 4 steals. Markel Humphrey produced 21 points and 9 rebounds for the guests. Lille Metropole moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Nantes. Bordeaux lost tenth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 18 lost games. Lille Metropole will meet Hyeres-Toulon (#15) on the road in the next round. Bordeaux will play against the league's second-placed ALM Evreux and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Fourteenth-ranked Saint Vallier (7-13) gave a tough game to fifth ranked Olympique Antibes (14-6). The visitors from Antibes managed to secure only one-point victory 71-70. However their fans expected much easier game. Tim Blue saved the victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds. Olympique Antibes moved-up to third place, which they share with Chalons-Reims and Le Portel. Saint Vallier lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth position with 13 games lost. Olympique Antibes will have a break next round. Saint Vallier will play on the road against Fos Ouest (#9).
Tenth ranked JL Bourg (11-9) crushed at home 9th ranked SPO Rouen (10-10) by 21 points 104-83, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of SPO Rouen. Worth to mention a quality performance of Moses Sonko who helped to win the game recording 27 points and 8 rebounds. JL Bourg's coach Frederic Sarre felt very confident that he used 11 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. JL Bourg moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Maurienne and Fos Ouest. Loser SPO Rouen dropped to the tenth position with ten games lost. JL Bourg will face Charleville-Mezieres (#17) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. SPO Rouen will play against Chalons-Reims (#4).

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 20: Charleville was destroyed by Maurienne on the opponent's court 104-83. Le Portel managed to outperform Hyeres-Toulon in a home game 85-73. St Quentin managed to beat Nantes on the road 81-70. Evreux defeated Boulogne on its own court 86-71.

Maurienne - Charleville 104-83

Very expected game in Aix-les-Bains where 17th ranked Charleville-Mezieres (5-15) was crushed by seventh ranked Aix-Maurienne (11-9) 104-83 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Aix-Maurienne. Charleville-Mezieres was better in second period 25-24. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Aix-Maurienne made 20-of-25 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game.

Denain Voltaire's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 16-4 record. Denain Voltaire lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the sixteenth place with 15 games lost. They share the position with Charleville. Pau-Lacq-Orthez are looking forward to face Nantes (#12) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them.
