Pape-Philippe
Amagou
The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with change at the leadership position, few extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Round 21 in ProA means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Roanne where host Chorale de Roanne (11-10) beat league's leader Strasbourg IG (15-6) 70-65 on Monday evening. It ended at the same time the ten-game winning streak of Strasbourg IG. Strasbourg IG was trailing by 2 points at halftime but managed to get 3-point lead after three quarters before a 21-13 charge of Chorale de Roanne, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was naturalized Ivorian guard Pape-Philippe Amagou (185-85, agency: Beo Basket) who scored 25 points (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). The former international William Gradit (197-82, college: Hill JC) chipped in 10 points and 6 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was American point guard Louis Campbell (190-79, college: Buffalo, agency: Pro One Sports) who recorded 14 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Strasbourg IG's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Chorale de Roanne have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois and Nanterre. Strasbourg IG at the other side still keeps top position with six games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Gravelines who have the same record. Strasbourg IG will play next round against STB Le Havre trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Chorale de Roanne will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked JSF Nanterre on the road.
Top ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (15-6) recorded its sixth loss on the court of third ranked Chalon/Saor. Visitors were edged by Chalon/Saor in overtime 69-67. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Gravelines-Dunkerque. The game was dominated by American players. It was a good game for swingman Blake Schilb (200-83, college: Loyola, IL, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) who led his team to a victory with 26 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Shelden Williams contributed with 20 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks for the winners. Power forward J.K. Edwards (202-82, college: UNLV) answered with 11 points and 7 rebounds for Gravelines-Dunkerque. Defending champion maintains third place with 13-7 record having just three points less than leader Gravelines. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side still keeps top position with six games lost. They share it with Strasbourg. Chalon/Saor will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#9) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against Poitiers (#15) and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Other games of round 21 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Limoges was defeated by Le Havre in a road game 85-74. Nancy was beaten by Nanterre at home 71-79. Paris-Levallois lost to Le Mans on the opponent's court 59-72. Dijon unfortunately lost to Orleans in a home game 74-83. ASVEL managed to beat Cholet on the road 81-71.
The best stats of 21th round was 26 points and 9 assists by Bernard King of Le Havre.

Strasbourg IG's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Chorale de Roanne have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois and Nanterre. Strasbourg IG at the other side still keeps top position with six games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Gravelines who have the same record. Strasbourg IG will play next round against STB Le Havre trying to make it back to the top of the standings.

Le Havre - Limoges 85-74

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 12th ranked Limoges CSP Elite (8-12) was defeated on the road by thirteenth ranked STB Le Havre (9-12) 85-74 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by STB Le Havre. Limoges CSP Elite was better in third quarter 21-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. STB Le Havre looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Limoges CSP Elite was plagued by 30 personal fouls down the stretch. The best player for the winners was American guard Bernard King (196-81, college: Texas A&M) who scored 26 points and 9 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line). Congolese-Central African forward Max Kouguere (198-87) chipped in 14 points and 8 rebounds. Four STB Le Havre players scored in double figures. At the other side the best for losing team was American forward Jon Brockman (201-87, college: Washington) who recorded 21 points and 7 rebounds and the former international point guard Joseph Gomis (180-78) added 12 points respectively. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. STB Le Havre moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Cholet. Newly promoted Limoges CSP Elite dropped to the thirteenth position with 12 games lost. STB Le Havre will face league's second-placed Strasbourg IG on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Limoges CSP Elite will play against Sluc Nancy (#14) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Nancy - Nanterre 71-79

No shocking result in a game when ninth ranked JSF Nanterre (11-10) defeated on the road 14th ranked Sluc Nancy (7-14) 79-71 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 79-71. The best player for the winners was Colombian power forward Juan Palacios (204-85) who scored 19 points. The former international forward Stephen Brun (202-80) chipped in 13 points and 7 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was American guard Jamal Shuler (191-86) who recorded 18 points and the former international power forward Claude Marquis (204-80) added 13 points and 8 rebounds respectively. Five Sluc Nancy players scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. JSF Nanterre have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois and Roanne. Sluc Nancy lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth position with 14 games lost. JSF Nanterre will face Chorale de Roanne (#6) at home in the next round. Sluc Nancy will play against Limoges CSP Elite (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Le Mans - Paris-Levallois 72-59

Rather expected game when 6th ranked Paris-Levallois (11-10) was defeated on the road by fourth ranked Le Mans (13-8) 72-59 on Saturday. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 72-59. Le Mans outrebounded Paris-Levallois 44-30 including a 32-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. The best player for the winners was U.S. Virgin Islands forward Cuthbert Victor (197-83, college: Murray St.) who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds. American guard Cam Long (193-88, college: George Mason, agency: KMG Sports Management) chipped in 16 points and 5 assists. Four Le Mans players scored in double figures. Le Mans' coach J.D. Jackson used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the other side the best for losing team was the former international point guard Antoine Diot (191-89) who recorded 13 points and 4 assists and American forward Sean May (206-84, college: N.Carolina) added 6 points and 12 rebounds respectively. Le Mans maintains fourth place with 13-8 record. Loser Paris-Levallois keeps the sixth position with ten games lost.

Dijon - Orleans 74-83

There was a small surprise when eleventh ranked Entente Orleans 45 (10-11) beat on the road 8th ranked JDA Dijon (10-11) 83-74 on Saturday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 21-19. But JDA Dijon won second period 17-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Entente Orleans 45 shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 54.5 percentage. The game was also dominated by American players.
