Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked JA Vichy (15-5) on the court of thirteenth ranked Saint Chamond on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by Saint Chamond 75-69. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of JA Vichy. The hosts trailed by 4 points after three quarters before their 29-19 charge, which allowed them to win the game. They outrebounded JA Vichy 45-34 including 35 on the defensive glass. 26 personal fouls committed by JA Vichy helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized DR Congolese guard Jean-Paul Landu-Bongo (187-85) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 7 assists. American forward Tyray Pearson (201-80, college: Iowa St.) contributed with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. point guard Benjamin Thomas (181-82) replied with 15 points and 4 assists for JA Vichy. JA Vichy's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Saint Chamond (7-12) moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Angers BC 49. JA Vichy at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. Saint Chamond is looking forward to face higher ranked Rueil (#10) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. JA Vichy will play against Souffelweyersheim (#4) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 20th consecutive match to third ranked Quimper UJAP (14-5) 81-61. Nigerian forward Corey Raji (198-88, college: Boston Coll., agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) scored 21 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Florian Thibedore chipped in 20 points and 6 assists during the contest. Quimper UJAP's coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side Damien Inglis (203-95) responded with 21 points. Quimper UJAP have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 14-5 record behind leader Vichy, which they share with Souffel. CFBB at the other side still closes the standings. Quimper UJAP will play against La Rochelle (#6) on the road in the next round. CFBB will play against the league's second-placed Orchesien BC (#2) in Orchies and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very close game took place in Angers between Angers BC 49 and Sorgues. Twelfth ranked Angers BC 49 (7-12) got a very close home victory over higher ranked Sorgues (10-9). Angers BC 49 managed to escape with a 1-point win 84-83 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Sorgues. Anthony Hill notched a double-double by scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead the effort. Even 26 points and 5 steals by Arnaud Thinon did not help to save the game for Sorgues. Angers BC 49 maintains twelfth position with 7-12 record, which they share with St Chamond. Loser Sorgues dropped to the eighth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Blois. Angers BC 49 will meet higher ranked Chartres (#11) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Sorgues will play against Monaco and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between fourth ranked Souffelweyersheim (14-5) and 6th ranked La Rochelle (12-8) in Souffel. ended with biggest points difference. Souffelweyersheim outscored guests from La Rochelle 79-54.

Souffelweyersheim's next round opponent will be league's leader JA Vichy on the road and it will be for sure the game of the week. La Rochelle will play against Quimper UJAP (#3).

Other games in round 22 were not that significant. Rueil was smashed by Cognac on the road 79-60. Monaco won against Rennes on its own court 80-75. Chartres unfortunately lost to Blois in a road game 56-65.
The most impressive performance of 22th round was 13 points, 10 rebounds and 16 assists by Anthony Christophe of Monaco.


Cognac - Rueil 79-60

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked Cognac (13-6) crushed at home 8th ranked Rueil (10-10) 79-60. The hosts were tied after three quarters but managed to speed up in last quarter eventually winning the game. Cognac dominated on the defensive end, holding Rueil to just 4 points in fourth quarter.

Monaco - Rennes 80-75
