B.J.
Monteiro
The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Fifth defeat of league's leader Souffelweyersheim (14-5) against fourth ranked Caen (13-6) 77-73 was the most important game of the last round. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Souffelweyersheim won fourth quarter 21-15. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Caen made 19-of-24 free shots (79.2 percent) during the game. 25 personal fouls committed by Souffelweyersheim helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Cape Verdean swingman B.J. Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 6 assists. American power forward Richie Gordon (203-89, college: W.Carolina) contributed with 18 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Valentin Correia (192-93) answered with 21 points and 8 rebounds for Souffelweyersheim. Caen have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with RAC Basket. Souffelweyersheim at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Quimper who have the same record. Souffelweyersheim will play next round against UB Chartres trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Caen will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked Lourdes-Tarbes on the road.
Fourteenth-ranked Lorient (7-12) used its home court advantage to challenge second ranked Quimper UJAP (14-5). The visitors from Quimper managed to secure only one-point victory 45-44. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a great evening for American forward Dwight Burke (202-86, college: Marquette) who led his team to a victory scoring 5 points and 9 rebounds. Vyacheslav Bobrov helped adding 4 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side American forward Michael Craion (195-89, college: ORU) responded with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 10 rebounds. Quimper UJAP keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Souffel. Lorient lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team dropped to the sixteenth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Challans. Quimper UJAP will play against bottom-ranked CFBB (#18) in Paris in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Lorient will play on the road against Vendee Challans and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 18th consecutive match to fifth ranked GET Vosges (12-7) 89-59 on Friday evening. It was an exceptional evening for Steven Ricard who led the winners and scored 22 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 5 steals. Yanik Blanc came up with 14 points for CFBB in the defeat. CFBB's coach Jean-Aime Toupane gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. GET Vosges have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fifth place with 12-7 record. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. GET Vosges will meet at home Gries/Oberhoffen (#15) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. CFBB will play against the league's leader Quimper UJAP and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very interesting game took place in Rennes. It ended with only two-point home defeat of 10th ranked Union Rennes (9-10) to fourth ranked Rueil (13-6) 108-106 on Saturday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Will Felder fired 39 points (!!!) and 7 rebounds for the winners. Rueil have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Caen. Newly promoted Union Rennes keeps the tenth position with ten games lost. Rueil's next round opponent will be Orchesien BC (#6) in Orchies. Union Rennes will play on the road against Vitre (#13) and hope to win that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Chartres. Thirteenth ranked ALS Basket (9-11) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging higher ranked UB Chartres (10-9) 70-68 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of UB Chartres. It was a very good performance for Jean-Francois Christnel who helped to win the game recording 19 points. ALS Basket moved-up to eleventh place. Loser UB Chartres dropped to the eighth position with nine games lost. ALS Basket will face SAP Vaucluse (#14) in Sorgues in the next round.

Other games in round 19 were not that significant. Challans was beaten by Orchies on the road 83-74. SAP Vaucluse destroyed Angers BC on its own court 89-69. Vitre was outscored by St Vallier in Saint Vallier 73-51. Gries/Oberhoffen rolled over Lourdes at home 93-60. SAP Vaucluse defeated ALS Basket on the opponent's court 83-76.
The most impressive performance of 19th round was 22 points and 6 assists by Deremy Geiger of SAP Vaucluse.

Orchies - Challans 83-74

No shocking result in a game when eighth ranked Orchesien BC (11-8) beat 15th ranked Vendee Challans (7-12) in Orchies 83-74 on Saturday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. It was a very good performance for Hugo Dumortier (195-93) who helped to win the game recording 15 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Naturalized Mali swingman Sourata Cisse (196-86) contributed with 17 points (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Swingman Dominique Gentil (197-88, agency: Octagon Europe) answered with 17 points and American guard Jordan Barham (193-94, college: Davidson) added 15 points in the effort for Vendee Challans. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Orchesien BC moved-up to sixth place, which they share with St Vallier. Loser Vendee Challans dropped to the sixteenth position with 12 games lost. Orchesien BC will face higher ranked Rueil (#3) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Vendee Challans will play against Lorient (#16) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
