Dwight
Buycks
The most exciting game of round 20 in the ProA took place in Gravelines. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of 4th ranked Le Mans (12-8) to first ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (15-5) 71-68 on Saturday evening. The hosts trailed by 8 points at the halftime before their 41-30 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard Dwight Buycks (190-89, college: Marquette) who helped to win the game recording 14 points and American-FYR Macedonian swingman Kennedy Winston (198-84, college: Alabama) who added 14 points during the contest. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American guard Cam Long (193-88, college: George Mason, agency: KMG Sports Management) responded with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Gravelines-Dunkerque have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 15-5 record, which they share with Strasbourg. Le Mans at the other side keeps the fourth place with eight games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque is looking forward to face Chalon/Saor (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Le Mans will play against Paris-Levallois and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Strasbourg. Second ranked host Strasbourg IG (15-5) defeated 3rd ranked Chalon/Saor (12-7) 80-65. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. The winners were led by American-Dominican swingman Ricardo Greer (197-78, college: Pittsburgh) who had that evening a triple-double by scoring 16 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists and Louis Campbell supported him with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists. Even 22 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists by American swingman Blake Schilb (200-83, college: Loyola, IL, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) did not help to save the game for Chalon/Saor. Strasbourg IG have an impressive ten-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Gravelines. Defending champion Chalon/Saor keeps the third place with seven games lost. Strasbourg IG will play against Chorale de Roanne (#7) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Chalon/Saor will play against the league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque (#1) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Nanterre where 7th ranked Entente Orleans 45 (9-11) was upset on the court of tenth ranked JSF Nanterre (10-10) 93-78 on Saturday. Americans were the main players on the court. The best player for the winners was Chris Warren who scored 23 points. Brian Greene produced 24 points and 7 rebounds for the guests. JSF Nanterre have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Dijon and Roanne. Entente Orleans 45 lost third consecutive game.

Entente Orleans 45 will play against JDA Dijon (#8) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Levallois where 6th ranked Paris-Levallois (11-9) was upset on its own court by ninth ranked JDA Dijon (10-10) 78-70. Andre Harris orchestrated the victory by scoring 14 points and 6 rebounds. JDA Dijon's coach Jean-Louis Borg allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. JDA Dijon moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Roanne and Nanterre. Paris-Levallois at the other side dropped to the fifth position with nine games lost. JDA Dijon's next round opponent will be Entente Orleans 45 (#11) at home. Paris-Levallois will play against Le Mans (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Villeurbanne where higher ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (11-9) was upset on its own court by fifteenth ranked Poitiers (7-13) 86-78 on Saturday. Worth to mention a great performance of Dominic James who helped to win the game recording 34 points (!!!). ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Poitiers moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Nancy. Loser ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket keeps the fifth position with nine games lost. Poitiers will face bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket (#16) at home in the next round.

Strasbourg - Chalon 80-65

The game between Top Four teams took place in Strasbourg. Second ranked host Strasbourg IG (15-5) defeated 3rd ranked Chalon/Saor (12-7) 80-65. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. It was a very close game until the last quarter, when Strasbourg IG's pressure prevailed and they won that period 25-13 extending their advantage to 15 points. They dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Chalon/Saor's 36. Strasbourg IG players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Chalon/Saor's players.

Four Strasbourg IG players scored in double figures.

Limoges - Roanne 77-90

Rather expected game when 11th ranked Limoges CSP Elite (8-11) was defeated at home by eighth ranked Chorale de Roanne (10-10) 90-77 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Chorale de Roanne. Limoges CSP Elite was better in second period 21-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Chorale de Roanne made 24-of-29 free shots (82.8 percent) during the game. It was a great shooting night for Chorale de Roanne especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 57.1 percentage. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Chorale de Roanne made 7 blocks. Limoges CSP Elite was plagued by 26 personal fouls down the stretch. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized Ivorian guard Pape-Philippe Amagou (185-85, agency: Beo Basket) who helped to win the game recording 23 points and 7 assists and American power forward Coleman Collins (206-86, college: Virginia Tech, agency: Interperformances) who added 14 points and 8 rebounds during the contest.

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both fourteenth ranked STB Le Havre and 13th ranked Sluc Nancy had identical 7-12 record. This time STB Le Havre used a home court advantage and defeated the opponent from Nancy 85-78 on Saturday night.
