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.

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.

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.
