Quincy
Hankins-Cole
The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

NM1 round 19 caused change at the leadership position. Fourth defeat of league's leader Orchesien BC (12-4) against tenth ranked Sorgues (9-8) 119-115 in overtime was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Orchesien BC. Orchesien BC was tied after three quarters and then recorded another tie at the end of regular time. They were eventually defeated in overtime 10-14s. Sorgues forced 20 Orchesien BC turnovers. They shot the lights out from three sinking 15 long-distance shots on high 51.7 percentage. Sorgues looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. 29 personal fouls committed by Orchesien BC helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American Quincy Hankins-Cole (203-90) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 27 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. American-Italian swingman Ryan Zamroz (192-87, college: Master's) contributed with 28 points and 4 assists for the winners. American guard Russell Carter (196-85, college: Notre Dame) answered with 25 points and 9 rebounds for Orchesien BC. Orchesien BC's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sorgues moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Blois and Rueil. Orchesien BC at the other side dropped to the second position with four games lost. They share it with Cognac. They were replaced at the leadership position by Vichy. Orchesien BC will play next round against Chartres trying to make it back to the top of the standings.
