Jarryd Cole
The game between third ranked Quimper UJAP (14-6) and sixth ranked La Rochelle (13-8) was the most important one in the last round on Saturday night. Quimper UJAP was defeated by La Rochelle in La Rochelle 73-60. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Quimper UJAP. The game without a history. La Rochelle led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. La Rochelle forced 20 Quimper UJAP turnovers. It was a great evening for American forward Jarryd Cole (204-88, college: Iowa) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 14 rebounds. Naturalized Madagascar swingman Amy M'Boma (199-83) helped adding 24 points. Nigerian forward Corey Raji (198-88, college: Boston Coll., agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) responded with 21 points and 7 rebounds. Newly promoted La Rochelle maintains sixth place with 13-8 record. Quimper UJAP at the other side keeps the third position with six games lost. They share it with Cognac and Souffel. La Rochelle are looking forward to face league's second-placed Orchesien BC in Orchies in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Quimper UJAP will play at home against the league's leader JA Vichy and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Vichy. First ranked host JA Vichy (16-5) defeated 4th placed Souffelweyersheim (14-6) 60-51. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Souffelweyersheim.

JA Vichy will play against Quimper UJAP (#5) on the road in the next round. Souffelweyersheim will play against Rueil and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-21) is still winless. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 21th consecutive match to second ranked Orchesien BC (15-4) 101-61 on Saturday evening. The best player for the winners was Renaud Brocheray who scored 16 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Orchesien BC's coach Philippe Namyst felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Damien Inglis produced 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the hosts. Orchesien BC have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain second place with 15-4 record behind leader Vichy. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Orchesien BC will meet at home La Rochelle (#6) in the next round.

Fourteenth-ranked Vendee Challans (6-14) gave a tough game to fifth ranked Cognac (14-6). Cognac managed to secure only three-point victory 69-66. However their fans expected much easier game. Dejan Sencanski orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points and 5 rebounds. Cognac moved-up to third place, which they share with Quimper and Souffel. Vendee Challans at the other side keeps the fourteenth position with 14 games lost. Cognac's next round opponent will be Saint Chamond (#13) on the road and are hoping to win another game.

The most impressive stats of the last round was 22 points, 7 rebounds and 5 blocks by Daviin Davis of Blois.
