Thomas
The most exciting game of round 24 in the NM1 took place in Quimper. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 5th ranked Quimper UJAP (14-7) to first ranked JA Vichy (17-5) 80-77 on Saturday evening. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Quimper UJAP won fourth quarter 18-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. JA Vichy dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Quimper UJAP's 30. The best player for the winners was point guard Benjamin Thomas (181-82) who scored 21 points and 6 assists. Octavio Da Silveira (204-89) chipped in 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). JA Vichy's coach Fabien Romeyer used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the other side the best for losing team was Spanish point guard Carlos Cherry (184-79, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who recorded 19 points and 9 assists (went 9 for 9 at the free throw line !!!). JA Vichy maintains first position with 17-5 record. Quimper UJAP at the other side dropped to the fourth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Cognac. JA Vichy are looking forward to face league's second-placed Orchesien BC in Orchies in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Quimper UJAP will play on the road against Rueil and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-22) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 100-46 loss to seventh ranked Monaco (12-8) in Monaco. It was a good game for American center Jason Jones (203-86, college: Northeastern St.) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 11 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Sylvain Marco contributed with 12 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. Monaco's coach Jean-Michel Senegal felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Swingman Lucas Dussoulier (200-96) replied with 11 points and 5 rebounds for CFBB. Monaco have a solid three-game winning streak. Newly promoted Monaco maintains seventh position with 12-8 record. CFBB at the other side still closes the standings. Monaco will play against higher ranked La Rochelle (#6) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. CFBB will play against Blois (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very close game took place in Saint Chamond between Saint Chamond and Cognac. Thirteenth ranked Saint Chamond (8-13) got a very close home victory over higher ranked Cognac (14-7). Saint Chamond managed to escape with a 2-point win 78-76 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Cognac. Worth to mention a great performance of Jean-Paul Landu-Bongo who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 5 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Dejan Sencanski with 18 points and 6 rebounds. Saint Chamond moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Angers BC 49. Loser Cognac keeps the fourth position with seven games lost. They share it with Quimper. Saint Chamond will meet at home Vendee Challans (#14) in the next round. Cognac will play against Souffelweyersheim (#3) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Challans, where higher ranked Sorgues (10-11) lost to fourteenth ranked Vendee Challans (7-14) in a road game 74-85. The winners were led by Johan Rathieuville who scored that evening 9 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists. Vendee Challans maintains fourteenth position with 7-14 record. Sorgues lost third consecutive game. They keep the tenth place with 11 games lost. Vendee Challans' next round opponent will be higher ranked Saint Chamond (#13) on the road and it may be quite challenging game.

Rest of the games of round 24 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Rennes was crushed by Angers BC 49 in a road game 85-60. Souffel beat Rueil at home 76-61. La Rochelle lost to Orchy on the opponent's court 72-77.
The best stats of 24th round was 20 points and 6 assists by Jeremy Tschamber of Souffel.


Angers BC 49 - Rennes 85-60

There was no surprise when 15th ranked Union Rennes (4-18) was crushed on the road by thirteenth ranked Angers BC 49 (8-13) 85-60. The game without a history. Angers BC 49 led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Angers BC 49 outrebounded Union Rennes 43-26 including a 31-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. The winners were led by guard Thibaut Lonzieme (195-89) who scored that evening 24 points and 8 rebounds and American forward Anthony Hill (204-88, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) supported him with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Four Angers BC 49 players scored in double figures. Even 16 points and 7 rebounds by center Said Ben Driss (206-85) did not help to save the game for Union Rennes. American forward Alex Okafor (202-87, college: Princeton) added 9 points and 7 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Angers BC 49 moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with St Chamond. Union Rennes lost eleventh consecutive game. Newly promoted Union Rennes keeps the fifteenth position with 18 games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.

Souffel - Rueil 76-61

No shocking result in a game in Souffel. where third ranked Souffelweyersheim (15-6) defeated 9th ranked Rueil (11-11) 76-61. It looked good early as Rueil took an 4-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Souffelweyersheim had a 24-10 second period charge getting the lead and Rueil was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 61-76. The winners were led by guard Jeremy Tschamber (192-84) who scored that evening 20 points and 6 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) and naturalized Chadian forward Jacques Alingue (201-88) supported him with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 4 blocks. Souffelweyersheim's coach Stephane Eberlin allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 13 points and 7 rebounds by Serbian forward Slobodan Ocokoljic (204-80, college: Weber St., agency: TSS Management) did not help to save the game for Rueil. Alexis Desespringalle (192-91) added 13 points. Souffelweyersheim maintains third position with 15-6 record having just three points less than leader Vichy. Rueil at the other side keeps the ninth place with 11 games lost. Souffelweyersheim's next round opponent will be Cognac (#4) on the road. Rueil will play against Quimper UJAP (#5).

Orchy - La Rochelle 77-72

Very expected game in Orchies where 6th ranked La Rochelle (13-9) was defeated by second ranked Orchesien BC (16-4) 77-72. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts were already 13 points ahead after 3 quarters before a 15-7 La Rochelle's run in the last quarter cut the lead to 77-72 at the end of the game. The winners were led by forward Renaud Brocheray (202-80) who scored that evening 17 points and 7 rebounds and point guard Emilien Barbry (188-83) supported him with 3 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists. Orchesien BC's coach Philippe Namyst allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 20 points and 9 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) by American forward Jarryd Cole (204-88, college: Iowa) did not help to save the game for La Rochelle. Naturalized Madagascar swingman Amy M'Boma (199-83) added 14 points and 8 rebounds. Five La Rochelle players scored in double figures. Orchesien BC have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 16-4 record behind leader Vichy. Newly promoted La Rochelle keeps the sixth place with nine games lost. Orchesien BC'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 Monaco (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

St Chamond - Cognac 78-76

A very close game took place in Saint Chamond between Saint Chamond and Cognac. Thirteenth ranked Saint Chamond (8-13) got a very close home victory over higher ranked Cognac (14-7). Saint Chamond managed to escape with a 2-point win 78-76 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Cognac. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Cognac won third quarter 17-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.
