There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most interesting game of round 17 in the ProA was a home defeat of second-ranked Le Mans (11-6) to first ranked Strasbourg IG (12-5) 85-73. It ended the four-game winning streak of Le Mans. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The game without a history. Strasbourg IG led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Le Mans' 30. Strasbourg IG looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American guard Louis Campbell (190-79, college: Buffalo, agency: Pro One Sports) stepped up and scored 18 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners and American-Dominican swingman Ricardo Greer (197-78, college: Pittsburgh) chipped in 14 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. International forward Charles Kahudi (197-86, agency: Beo Basket) responded with 15 points. Strasbourg IG have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They maintain first place with 12-5 record, which they share with Gravelines. Le Mans at the other side dropped to the third position with six games lost. They share it with Chalon. Strasbourg IG is looking forward to face Poitiers (#14) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Le Mans will play against Chorale de Roanne (#10) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Important game to mention about took place in Poitiers. Fifteenth ranked Poitiers (6-11) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 14th ranked STB Le Havre (6-11) 70-68 in the game for the fourteenth place. American forward Ahmad Nivins (206-87, college: St.Joseph's) nailed 16 points and 6 rebounds for the winning side and Anthony Dobbins accounted for 10 points and 8 rebounds. American guard Bernard King (196-81, college: Texas A&M) came up with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 assists for STB Le Havre in the defeat. Poitiers moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Le Havre. Poitiers will play against league's second-placed Strasbourg IG on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. STB Le Havre will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#7) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Villeurbanne between ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket and JSF Nanterre. Sixth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (10-7) got a very close home victory over 11th ranked JSF Nanterre (7-10). ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket managed to escape with a 3-point win 87-84 on Monday evening. Host team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. The best player for the winners was Amara Sy who had a double-double by scoring 22 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Chris Oliver produced 18 points and 9 rebounds for the guests. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois. Loser JSF Nanterre keeps the eleventh position with ten games lost. They share it with Limoges and Nancy. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will meet JDA Dijon (#9) on the road in the next round. JSF Nanterre will play against Cholet and hope to secure a win.
An interesting game took place in Levallois where higher ranked Paris-Levallois (10-7) was upset on its own court by twelfth ranked Chorale de Roanne (8-9) 87-71. Victor Samnick orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points and 6 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Chorale de Roanne moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Cholet and Dijon. Paris-Levallois at the other side keeps the fifth position with seven games lost. Chorale de Roanne's next round opponent will be higher ranked Le Mans (#4) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Paris-Levallois will play against the league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Seventh ranked Entente Orleans 45 (9-8) crushed at home 16th ranked Boulazac Basket (4-13) by 18 points 93-75, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Americans were the main players on the court. Jahmar Young stepped up and scored 21 points for the winners. Entente Orleans 45's coach Philippe Herve used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Entente Orleans 45 maintains seventh place with 9-8 record. Boulazac Basket lost their seventh game in a row. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom position with 13 games lost. Entente Orleans 45 will face STB Le Havre (#15) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Boulazac Basket will play against Sluc Nancy.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 17: Limoges lost to Cholet on the opponent's court 67-75. Nancy unfortunately lost to Gravelines in a home game 79-83. Dijon recorded a loss to Chalon on the road 55-73.
