Spanish point guard Carlos Cherry (184-PG-79, agency: Global Sports Plaza) had a very impressive game in the last round for Quimper, receiving a Eurobasket.com NM1 Player of the Week award for round 20. The 33-year old player was the main contributor (22 points, eight rebounds and nine assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Rennes (#15, 4-14) 70-63. Quimper is placed at 3rd position in French NM1. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Quimper will need more victories to improve their 13-5 record. Cherry turned to be Quimper's top player in his first season with the team. Carlos Cherry has solid league stats. He is in league's top in assists (2nd best: 6.3apg).
The second best player in last round's games was 24-year old American Jarryd Cole (204-F-88) of La Rochelle. Cole had a very good evening with a double-double of 31 points and 11 rebounds. It was enough for La Rochelle to edge slightly higher-ranked Cognac (#5, 12-5) 74-68. La Rochelle's 6th position in the standings has not changed. His team lost some distance to top teams. But 11-7 record is not bad and everything may still change. Cole is a newcomer at La Rochelle, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 17.0ppg (#6). He also registered 7.1 boards per game.
Third on the list of top players last round was American forward Tyray Pearson (201-F-80) of St Chamond (#12). Pearson scored 22 points and grabbed eleven rebounds (!!!). He was a key player of St Chamond, leading his team to a 96-69 easy win against CFBB (#16, 0-18). The chances of St Chamond not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 11 games, recording just six victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Pearson could try to bring St Chamond's a little bit higher in the standings. Pearson has a very solid season. In 2 games in France he scored 19.0ppg.
