Ninth-ranked Cholet (8-11) used its home court advantage to challenge first ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (14-5) on Saturday. The visitors from Gravelines managed to secure only two-point victory 85-83. However their fans expected much easier game. The guests trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 28-21 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Gravelines-Dunkerque dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Cholet's 40. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international center Ludovic Vaty (206-88, college: Moraine Valley CC) who helped to win the game recording 21 points and 8 rebounds. American power forward J.K. Edwards (202-82, college: UNLV) contributed with 18 points for the winners. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American forward Marcus Goree (201-77, college: W.Virginia) answered with 16 points and 8 assists for Cholet. Gravelines-Dunkerque have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain first place with 14-5 record, which they share with Strasbourg. Cholet at the other side dropped to the twelfth position with 11 games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque is looking forward to face Le Mans (#4) at home in the next round. Cholet will play against Boulazac Basket (#16) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Thirteenth-ranked Sluc Nancy (7-12) used its home court advantage to challenge second ranked Strasbourg IG (14-5). The visitors from Strasbourg managed to secure only one-point victory 74-73. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a great evening for the former international center Alexis Ajinca (215-88, agency: Priority Sports) who led his team to a victory scoring 23 points, 5 rebounds and 4 blocks. Louis Campbell helped adding 13 points and 7 assists. At the losing side American forward Marcellus Sommerville (200-82, college: Bradley) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds. Sluc Nancy's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. The victory was the ninth consecutive win for Strasbourg IG. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Gravelines. Sluc Nancy lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the thirteenth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Le Havre. Strasbourg IG will play against Chalon/Saor (#3) at home in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Sluc Nancy will play against STB Le Havre (#14) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Le Mans (12-7) against eleventh ranked JSF Nanterre (9-10) on Saturday night. Host Le Mans was defeated by JSF Nanterre in Le Mans 91-81. It was an exceptional evening for Trenton Meacham who led the winners and scored 28 points (perfect from the field making all ten shots !!!). Joao Paulo Batista came up with 19 points and 9 rebounds for Le Mans in the defeat. JSF Nanterre moved-up to seventh place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Le Mans dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. JSF Nanterre will meet at home Entente Orleans 45 (#7) in the next round. Le Mans will play against the league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque having rather not much hope for a victory.
Fifteenth-ranked Poitiers (6-13) used its home court advantage to challenge sixth ranked Paris-Levallois (11-8). The visitors from Levallois managed to secure only two-point victory 73-71. However their fans expected much easier game. Sean May fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Paris-Levallois moved-up to fifth place, which they share with ASVEL. Poitiers at the other side keeps the fifteenth position with 13 games lost. Paris-Levallois' next round opponent will be JDA Dijon (#9) at home. Poitiers will play against ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#5).
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Entente Orleans 45 (9-10) and Limoges CSP Elite (8-10), which took place in Orleans. Higher ranked Entente Orleans 45 lost at home to twelfth ranked Limoges CSP Elite 67-72 on Saturday. American players dominated the game. It was a very good performance for Jon Brockman who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 15 points and 18 rebounds. Limoges CSP Elite moved-up to eleventh place. Loser Entente Orleans 45 keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. Limoges CSP Elite will face higher ranked Chorale de Roanne (#8) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Other games in round 19 were not that significant. Dijon was beaten by Roanne on the road 63-56. ASVEL won against Le Havre on its own court 70-66. Bottom-ranked Boulazac unfortunately lost to Chalon in a road game 75-89.
The most impressive performance of 19th round was 25 points and 9 assists by Blake Schilb of Chalon.
