Jared Newson
The game between third ranked Chalons-Reims (16-9) and fourteenth ranked Hyeres-Toulon (10-15) was the most important one in the last round on Friday night. Chalons-Reims was defeated by Hyeres-Toulon in a tough game in Toulon 66-70. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Chalons-Reims. The hosts trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 20-13 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Hyeres-Toulon forced 19 Chalons-Reims turnovers. 24 personal fouls committed by Chalons-Reims helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American swingman Jared Newson (195-84, college: Tenn-Martin, agency: Pro One Sports) who helped to win the game recording 13 points and 8 rebounds. Power forward Landing Sane (207-90) contributed with 14 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. American forward Justin Burrell (206-88, college: St.John's) answered with 15 points and 8 rebounds for Chalons-Reims. Hyeres-Toulon have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to thirteenth place. Chalons-Reims at the other side dropped to the fourth position with nine games lost. Hyeres-Toulon are looking forward to face higher ranked Saint-Quentin (#12) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Chalons-Reims will play against JL Bourg (#8) and is hoping to win this game.
ProB top team - Pau-Lacq-Orthez (20-5) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed fifteenth ranked Saint Vallier (8-17) 111-76. American forward Charles Jackson (203-87, college: Hawaii-Pacific, agency: Court Side) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 20 points and 12 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners and Brian Boddicker chipped in 23 points and 4 assists. At the losing side American-Ivorian guard Errick Craven (188-83, college: USC) responded with 17 points and 4 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Pau-Lacq-Orthez maintains first place with 20-5 record. Saint Vallier at the other side keeps the fifteenth position with 17 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against SO Maritime Boulogne (#5) on the road in the next round. Saint Vallier will play against Charleville-Mezieres (#18) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Bordeaux between Bordeaux and Saint-Quentin. Seventeenth ranked Bordeaux (6-19) got a very close home victory over higher ranked Saint-Quentin (11-14). Bordeaux managed to escape with a 2-point win 89-87 on Friday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. Nigel Wyatte nailed a double-double by scoring 20 points and 13 rebounds for the winning side. Jimmal Ball came up with 24 points for Saint-Quentin in the defeat. Saint-Quentin's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Bordeaux maintains seventeenth place with 6-19 record. Newly promoted Saint-Quentin keeps the twelfth position with 14 games lost. Bordeaux will meet higher ranked Olympique Antibes (#6) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Saint-Quentin will play against Hyeres-Toulon (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Olympique Antibes (15-10) and SPO Rouen (14-11), which took place in Rouen. Higher ranked Olympique Antibes lost to ninth ranked SPO Rouen in a road game 70-85. Gary Chathuant fired 24 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. SPO Rouen have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Bourg. Olympique Antibes at the other side keeps the fifth position with ten games lost. SPO Rouen's next round opponent will be higher ranked Fos Ouest (#7) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Olympique Antibes will play against Bordeaux.

Other games in round 25 were not that significant. Lille was beaten by Le Portel on the road 90-76. Bottom-ranked Charleville lost to Evreux on its own court 74-87. Denain unfortunately lost to Bourg in a road game 81-91. Maurienne managed to beat Nantes at home 79-66. Boulogne defeated Fos Ouest on the opponent's court 100-89.
The most impressive performance of 25th round was 31 points and 17 rebounds by Mouhammadou Jaiteh of Boulogne.


Le Portel - Lille 90-76

No shocking result in a game when third ranked Le Portel (17-8) beat at home 11th ranked Lille Metropole (12-13) 90-76. It looked good early as Lille Metropole took an 4-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Le Portel had a 18-7 second period charge getting the lead and Lille Metropole was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 76-90. Le Portel dominated on the defensive end, holding Lille Metropole to just 7 points in second quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to Lille Metropole's 36. American point guard Ronnie Taylor (188-81, college: NC-Greensboro, agency: Court Side) fired 20 points and 6 assists for the winners. His fellow American import forward Darnell Wilson (198-85, college: Canisius, agency: Court Side) chipped in 19 points. Four Le Portel players scored in double figures. Swingman Benoit Gillet (191-86) produced 19 points and 5 assists and American Jason Siggers (188-85, college: Albany) added 15 points and 5 rebounds respectively for lost side. Lille Metropole's coach tested ten players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Le Portel have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain third place with 17-8 record having just three points less than leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Lille Metropole at the other side keeps the eleventh position with 13 games lost.

Charleville - Evreux 74-87
