Abdoulaye
Loum
The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

An interesting game for Chalon/Saor (17-6) which hosted in Chalon 3rd placed JSF Nanterre (16-7). Second ranked Chalon/Saor managed to get a 4-point victory 94-90. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of JSF Nanterre. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Chalon/Saor made 23-of-27 free shots (85.2 percent) during the game. 24 personal fouls committed by JSF Nanterre helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Abdoulaye Loum (209-91) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Center Moustapha Fall (218-92) contributed with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) for the winners. American swingman Spencer Butterfield (190-92, college: Utah St., agency: Three Eye Sports) answered with 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for JSF Nanterre. JSF Nanterre's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Chalon/Saor maintains second place with 17-6 record having just three points less than leader Monaco, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez. JSF Nanterre at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. Chalon/Saor is looking forward to face Strasbourg IG (#6) on the road in the next round. JSF Nanterre will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against fourteenth-ranked JDA Dijon 87-70. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 17-point difference suggests that Sluc Nancy is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. It was a great evening for Spanish guard Alex Urtasun (193-84) who led his team to a victory scoring 22 points (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!). Brion Rush helped adding 11 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. American point guard David Holston (168-86, college: Chicago St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 11 assists. Sluc Nancy (6-17) moved-up to seventeenth place, which they share with Orleans. JDA Dijon at the other side dropped to the thirteenth position with 15 games lost. They share it with Cholet and Chalons-Reims. Sluc Nancy will play against bottom-ranked Entente Orleans 45 (#18) on the road in the next round. JDA Dijon will play against Olympique Antibes (#16) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
ProA top team - Monaco (20-3) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat thirteenth ranked Chalons-Reims (8-15) 81-72. It was a quality performance for Billy Ouattara who led the winners and scored 27 points and 6 rebounds. Monaco's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Mark Payne came up with 19 points, 7 assists and 4 steals (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for Chalons-Reims in the defeat. Monaco maintains first place with 20-3 record. Chalons-Reims lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth position with 15 games lost. They share it with Cholet and Dijon. Monaco will meet Hyeres-Toulon (#12) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Chalons-Reims will play against Le Portel and hope to secure a win.
Fifteenth-ranked Cholet Basket (8-15) was very close to win a game against fifth ranked Paris-Levallois (14-9). Paris-Levallois managed to secure only one-point victory 75-74. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Jason Rich who scored 24 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). Cholet Basket's coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Paris-Levallois maintains fifth place with 14-9 record, which they share with Strasbourg. Cholet Basket at the other side dropped to the thirteenth position with 15 games lost. Paris-Levallois' next round opponent will be Limoges CSP Elite (#10) on the road which should be theoretically an easy game. Cholet Basket will play against Pau-Lacq-Orthez and hope to win that game.
Twelfth-ranked Hyeres-Toulon (9-14) was very close to win a game against seventh ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (13-10) on Saturday. Gravelines-Dunkerque managed to secure only one-point victory 81-80. However their fans expected much easier game. Justin Cobbs saved the victory by scoring 24 points and 4 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Gravelines-Dunkerque maintains seventh place with 13-10 record. Hyeres-Toulon lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the twelfth position with 14 games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque will face higher ranked JSF Nanterre (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hyeres-Toulon will play against the league's leader Monaco (#1) and will have a slim chance for a victory.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 23: Limoges was smashed by Le Portel on the road 80-59. Pau-Lacq-Orthez won against Le Mans on its own court 85-71. Orleans unfortunately lost to ASVEL in Villeurbanne 78-82. Antibes recorded a loss to Strasbourg at home 72-81.
The most impressive performance of 23th round was 21 points, 5 assists and 4 steals by Ronald Lewis of Pau-Lacq-Orthez.

Le Portel - Limoges 80-59

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams when tenth ranked Le Portel (11-12) crushed at home 9th ranked Limoges CSP Elite (11-12) 80-59 on Monday. The game without a history. Le Portel led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Le Portel outrebounded Limoges CSP Elite 36-24 including 25 on the defensive glass. Limoges CSP Elite was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. American point guard Darrin Dorsey (188-87, college: Dakota Wesleyan) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points and 9 assists. His fellow American import power forward Franklin Hassell (203-88, college: ODU) contributed with 18 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for the winners. Four Le Portel players scored in double figures. Le Portel's coach Eric Girard felt very confident that he used 10 players and allowed the starting five to rest. Slovenian guard Klemen Prepelic (191-92) answered with 13 points and American forward CJ Fair (203-91, college: Syracuse) added 13 points in the effort for Limoges CSP Elite. Le Portel have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Limoges. Le Portel will face Chalons-Reims (#14) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game.

Pau-Lacq-Orthez - Le Mans 85-71

Very expected game when 11th ranked Le Mans (10-13) lost on the road to third ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (17-6) 85-71 on Sunday. It was a very close game until the last quarter, when Pau-Lacq-Orthez's pressure prevailed and they won that period 23-15 extending their advantage to 14 points. They shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 51.9 percentage. Pau-Lacq-Orthez looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists.

His fellow American import Ronald Lewis (193-84, college: Ohio St., agency: Pensack Sports) contributed with 21 points, 5 assists and 4 steals for the winners.

Loser Le Mans keeps the eleventh position with 13 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will face Cholet Basket (#15) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them.

Nancy - Dijon 87-70

Bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against fourteenth-ranked JDA Dijon 87-70. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 17-point difference suggests that Sluc Nancy is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. The game without a history. Sluc Nancy led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to JDA Dijon's 28. Sluc Nancy had a 30-19 advantage in offensive rebounds.
