The most important game in the last round took place in Lille between third ranked Olympique Antibes (14-8) and twelfth ranked Lille Metropole (10-12) on Friday night. Olympique Antibes was edged by Lille Metropole in a tough game on the road in overtime83-84. The hosts were tied at the half and again at the end of regular time.

Power forward Nicolas Taccoen (203-86) contributed with 17 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Jason Fontenet (178-82, college: Oregon St.) replied with 28 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists (made all of his seven free throws) for Olympique Antibes.
