Jarryd Cole
The most important game in the last round took place in Cognac between third ranked Cognac (12-5) and sixth ranked La Rochelle (11-7) on Tuesday night. Cognac was defeated by La Rochelle in a tough game at home 68-74. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Cognac. The guests trailed by 6 points after three quarters before their 23-11 charge, which allowed them to win the game. La Rochelle made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. 26 personal fouls committed by Cognac helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Jarryd Cole (204-88, college: Iowa) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 31 points and 11 rebounds and British forward Andrew Thomson (205-84, college: Catawba) who added 15 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. La Rochelle's coach Gregory Thielin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Center Miguel Buval (208-90) responded with 12 points and 6 rebounds. Newly promoted La Rochelle maintains sixth position with 11-7 record. Cognac at the other side dropped to the fourth place with five games lost. They share the position with Souffel. La Rochelle are looking forward to face Saint Chamond (#12) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Cognac will play against the league's leader JA Vichy (#1) and is hoping to win this game.
NM1 top team - JA Vichy (14-4) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat eighth ranked Rueil (9-9) 79-69. The winners were led by point guard Rida El Amrani (180-86) who scored that evening 10 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists and Gregory Lessort supported him with 11 points and 9 rebounds. JA Vichy's coach Fabien Romeyer allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 17 points by Serbian forward Slobodan Ocokoljic (204-80, college: Weber St., agency: TSS Management) did not help to save the game for Rueil. JA Vichy have an impressive ten-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 14-4 record. Rueil at the other side dropped to the tenth place with nine games lost. JA Vichy will play against Cognac (#5) at home in the next round. Rueil will play against Vendee Challans (#14) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-18) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 18th consecutive match to thirteenth ranked Saint Chamond (6-11) 96-69 on Tuesday evening. The best player for the winners was Tyray Pearson who had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Damien Inglis produced 18 points and 9 rebounds for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Saint Chamond moved-up to twelfth place. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Saint Chamond will meet higher ranked La Rochelle (#6) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. CFBB will play against Souffelweyersheim (#4) and will have a slim chance for a victory.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 20: Chartres lost to Orchy on the opponent's court 54-62. Quimper managed to outperform Rennes in a home game 70-63. Angers BC 49 recorded a loss to Challans on the road 79-65.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 22 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists by Carlos Cherry of Quimper.


Orchy - Chartres 62-54

Very expected game in Orchies where 11th ranked Chartres (7-11) was defeated by third ranked Orchesien BC (13-4) 62-54 on Tuesday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Chartres won third quarter 14-10. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was Serbian power forward Djordje Petrovic (204-84) who scored 11 points and 7 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). American guard Russell Carter (196-85, college: Notre Dame) chipped in 9 points and 7 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). Naturalized Cameroonian forward Michel Ipouck (199-86) produced a double-double by scoring 21 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals and forward Guillaume Merie (198-83) added 7 points and 8 rebounds respectively for the guests. Orchesien BC moved-up to second place. Loser Chartres keeps the eleventh position with 11 games lost. Orchesien BC will meet Union Rennes (#15) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Chartres will play against Monaco (#7) and hope to secure a win.

Quimper - Rennes 70-63

Very predictable result when fourth ranked Quimper UJAP (13-5) defeated at home 15th ranked Union Rennes (4-14) 70-63 on Tuesday. Union Rennes trailed by 11 points after 3 quarters before a 18-14 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 63-70 at the end of the game. The best player for the winners was Spanish point guard Carlos Cherry (184-79, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who scored 22 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. Nigerian forward Corey Raji (198-88, college: Boston Coll., agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) chipped in 18 points and 9 rebounds. Forward Omar Sall (195-80) produced 13 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists and Senegalese guard El Kabir Pene (190-84) added 15 points respectively for the guests. Union Rennes' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Quimper UJAP moved-up to third place. Union Rennes lost seventh consecutive game. Newly promoted Union Rennes keeps the fifteenth position with 14 games lost. Quimper UJAP will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Union Rennes will play against the league's second-placed Orchesien BC (#2) in Orchies and hope to secure a win.

St Chamond - CFBB 96-69

Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-18) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 18th consecutive match to thirteenth ranked Saint Chamond (6-11) 96-69 on Tuesday evening. The game was mostly controlled by Saint Chamond. CFBB managed to win third quarter 23-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 19-of-25 free shots (76.0 percent) during the game. Saint Chamond outrebounded CFBB 45-25 including a 31-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 30 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by CFBB's players. The best player for the winners was American forward Tyray Pearson (201-80, college: Iowa St.) who had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). point guard Romain Tillon (180-82, agency: ACMT) chipped in 12 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Four Saint Chamond players scored in double figures. Damien Inglis (203-95) produced 18 points and 9 rebounds and Paul Rigot (201-95) added 17 points respectively for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Saint Chamond moved-up to twelfth place. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Saint Chamond will meet higher ranked La Rochelle (#6) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
