There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket managed to get a fifth victory, breaking the seven-game losing streak on Saturday night. This time newly promoted Boulazac Basket edged eleventh-ranked Sluc Nancy 75-73. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 26-20. But Sluc Nancy won second period 20-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Boulazac Basket won last quarter 18-18. It was a great shooting night for Boulazac Basket especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 52.4 percentage. The best player for the winners was American guard Anthony Roberson (189-83, college: Florida) who scored 21 points. The other American import forward Tyler Smith (201-86, college: Tennessee) chipped in 6 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was naturalized Ivorian point guard Souleyman Diabate (183-87, agency: Beo Basket) who recorded 18 points and 4 assists.

Boulazac Basket are looking forward to face higher ranked Chalon/Saor (#4) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

It was a good game for point guard Dwight Buycks (190-89, college: Marquette) who led his team to a victory with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. J.K. Edwards contributed with 14 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.
