American forward Daviin Davis (193-85, college: Weber St.) came up with 12 points and 8 rebounds and center Jonathan Tornato (210-89) added 10 points and 7 rebounds respectively for Blois in the defeat. Five Sorgues and four Blois players scored in double figures. Blois' coach Hugues Occansey already knew that his team would not have a big chance, so allowed to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. The victory was the third consecutive win for Sorgues. They moved-up to seventh place. Blois at the other side dropped to the tenth position with nine games lost. Sorgues' next round opponent will be Angers BC 49 (#12) on the road which should be theoretically another easy game. Blois will play against Chartres and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
