Hachad
The most exciting game of round 24 in the ProB took place in Evreux. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of second-best ALM Evreux (17-7) to seventh ranked Fos Ouest (15-9) 77-75 on Friday evening. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But ALM Evreux won third quarter 19-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Fos Ouest won last quarter 23-23. The best player for the winners was Moroccan-Canadian Mohamed Hachad (194-83, college: Northwestern) who scored 17 points and 7 assists. The former international power forward Sacha Giffa (202-77) chipped in 12 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was American power forward Jeremiah Wood (200-85, agency: Court Side) who recorded a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds. Fos Ouest have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Antibes. ALM Evreux at the other side keeps the second position with seven games lost. Fos Ouest is looking forward to face SO Maritime Boulogne (#7) at home in the next round. ALM Evreux will play against Charleville-Mezieres (#18) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Olympique Antibes (15-9) against twelfth ranked Saint-Quentin (11-13) on Friday night. Visiting Olympique Antibes was defeated by Saint-Quentin in a tough game in Saint-Quentin 83-88. It was a good game for power forward Julien Lesieu (201-83) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Amu Saaka contributed with 22 points for the winners. American forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) replied with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for Olympique Antibes. Olympique Antibes' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Saint-Quentin maintains twelfth position with 11-13 record. Olympique Antibes at the other side dropped to the fifth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Fos Ouest. Saint-Quentin will play against Bordeaux (#17) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Olympique Antibes will play against SPO Rouen (#9) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Bordeaux managed to get a fifth victory on Friday night. This time they won against sixteenth-ranked Denain Voltaire 85-81. Worth to mention a great performance of Nigel Wyatte who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 8 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Chrislain Cairo with a double-double by scoring 27 points and 10 rebounds (on 12-of-15 shooting from the field). Denain Voltaire's coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Bordeaux (5-19) moved-up to seventeenth place, which they share with Charleville. Loser Denain Voltaire keeps the sixteenth position with 17 games lost. Bordeaux will meet at home higher ranked Saint-Quentin (#12) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Denain Voltaire will play against JL Bourg (#8) and hope to secure a win.
Leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez delivered the nineteenth victory. This time they beat 8th ranked JL Bourg (13-11) 96-85. The winners were led by Brian Boddicker who scored that evening 15 points and 5 rebounds. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's coach Claude Bergeaud allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Pau-Lacq-Orthez maintains first position with 19-5 record. JL Bourg at the other side keeps the eighth place with 11 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's next round opponent will be Saint Vallier (#15) at home which should be an easy win for them. JL Bourg will play against Denain Voltaire (#16).
The game in Boulogne was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Chalons-Reims (16-8) played at the court of 7th ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (14-10). Chalons-Reims managed to secure a 8-point victory 96-88 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Tyren Johnson who scored 26 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Chalons-Reims' coach Nikola Antic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Chalons-Reims moved-up to third place, which they share with Le Portel. Loser SO Maritime Boulogne keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. Chalons-Reims will face Hyeres-Toulon (#14) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. SO Maritime Boulogne will play against Fos Ouest (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 24 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Hyeres-Toulon crushed St Vallier in a road game 72-51. Le Portel beat Charleville at home 76-64. Rouen won against Nantes on the opponent's court 79-74. Lille managed to outperform Maurienne in a home game 72-63.


St Vallier - Hyeres-Toulon 51-72

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fifteenth ranked Hyeres-Toulon and 14th ranked Saint Vallier had identical 8-15 record. But Saint Vallier was not able to use a home court advantage and was crushed by the opponent from Toulon 72-51 on Saturday night. The game was mostly controlled by Hyeres-Toulon. Saint Vallier was better in third quarter 15-14. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Saint Vallier to just 5 points in fourth quarter. Hyeres-Toulon forced 20 Saint Vallier turnovers. The best player for the winners was power forward Landing Sane (207-90) who scored 23 points and 7 rebounds. American swingman Jared Newson (195-84, college: Tenn-Martin, agency: Pro One Sports) chipped in 18 points and 8 rebounds. Four Hyeres-Toulon players scored in double figures. At the other side the best for losing team was American-Ivorian guard Errick Craven (188-83, college: USC) who recorded 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists and American Corey Rouse (204-84, college: E.Carolina, agency: Court Side) added 12 points and 6 rebounds respectively. Saint Vallier's coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Hyeres-Toulon (9-15) moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Nantes. Loser Saint Vallier dropped to the fifteenth position with 16 games lost. Hyeres-Toulon will face higher ranked Chalons-Reims (#3) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Saint Vallier will play against the league's leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Le Portel - Charleville 76-64

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked Le Portel (16-8) defeated at home bottom-ranked Charleville-Mezieres (5-19) 76-64 on Friday. The hosts trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 5-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 76-64. Le Portel outrebounded Charleville-Mezieres 44-30 including 34 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was Jamaican-American Sherman Gay (201-82, college: Loyola Mary) who had a double-double by scoring 16 points and 13 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Guard Benoit Mangin (198-88) chipped in 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Lithuanian forward Vaidotas Pridotkas (200-84) who recorded 13 points and 8 rebounds and guard Fabien Calvez (187-84, college: Evansville) added 15 points and 5 rebounds respectively. Five Le Portel and four Charleville-Mezieres players scored in double figures. Le Portel moved-up to third place, which they share with Chalons-Reims.

Pau-Lacq-Orthez - Bourg 96-85

Leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez delivered the nineteenth victory. This time they beat 8th ranked JL Bourg (13-11) 96-85. The game was mostly controlled by Pau-Lacq-Orthez.
