The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between third ranked Chalons-Reims (14-7) and tenth ranked SPO Rouen (11-10) was the most important one in the last round on Tuesday night. Chalons-Reims was defeated by SPO Rouen in a tough game in Rouen 75-83. Chalons-Reims trailed by 16 points after 3 quarters before a 26-18 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 75-83 at the end of the game. 29 personal fouls committed by Chalons-Reims helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The best player for the winners was American forward Wendell McKines (198-88, college: N.Mexico St.) who had a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds. His fellow American import guard O'Darien Bassett (191-86, college: Troy) chipped in 13 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was American forward Justin Burrell (206-88, college: St.John's) who recorded 24 points and 9 rebounds. Chalons-Reims' coach Nikola Antic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. SPO Rouen moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Maurienne. Chalons-Reims at the other side keeps the third position with seven games lost. They share it with Antibes and Le Portel. SPO Rouen is looking forward to face league's second-placed ALM Evreux on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Chalons-Reims will play against Bordeaux and is hoping to win this game.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Antibes. Second ranked ALM Evreux faced 3rd placed Olympique Antibes. Guests from Evreux (16-5) defeated host Olympique Antibes (14-7) 94-88. The game was dominated by American players. It was a good game for power forward Jeremiah Wood (200-85, agency: Court Side) who led his team to a victory with 23 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field). Clevin Hannah contributed with 23 points and 4 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. point guard Jason Fontenet (178-82, college: Oregon St.) answered with 24 points and 8 assists for Olympique Antibes. ALM Evreux have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They maintain second place with 16-5 record behind leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Olympique Antibes at the other side keeps the third position with seven games lost. They share it with Chalons-Reims and Le Portel. ALM Evreux will play against SPO Rouen (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Olympique Antibes will play against Lille Metropole (#12) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Bordeaux managed to get a third victory, breaking the series of ten consecutive loses on Friday night. This time they edged fifth-ranked Le Portel 68-65. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Le Portel. Nigel Wyatte stepped up and scored 17 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. The best for the losing side was Sherman Gay with 22 points and 8 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Le Portel's coach Eric Girard tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Bordeaux maintains eighteenth place with 3-18 record. Loser Le Portel dropped to the third position with seven games lost. They share it with Antibes and Chalons-Reims. Bordeaux will meet higher ranked Chalons-Reims (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Le Portel will play against the league's leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
Leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez delivered the seventeenth victory. This time they beat 12th ranked Nantes (8-13) 86-80. Antoine Mendy nailed 18 points for the winning side. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The victory was the fourth consecutive win for Pau-Lacq-Orthez.

Sixteenth ranked Denain Voltaire won an overtime thriller against higher ranked Aix-Maurienne by one point 87-86 on Friday night. The game took place in Aix-les-Bains. But the guests from Denain were better at the end. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Aix-Maurienne. The best player for the winners was John Flowers who scored 31 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Denain Voltaire's coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game.
