ProA is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 17 rounds left.

ProA round 17 most important game was a victory of Gravelines-Dunkerque over 5th ranked Le Mans 81-71 on Saturday night. The game was mostly controlled by Gravelines-Dunkerque. Le Mans managed to win fourth quarter 28-23. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Gravelines-Dunkerque made 20-of-24 free shots (83.3 percent) during the game. British forward Myles Hesson (198-90) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 8 rebounds. American-Jamaican guard Sek Henry (193-87, college: Nebraska) contributed with 17 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Power forward Petr Cornelie (211-95) answered with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for Le Mans. Gravelines-Dunkerque have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with ASVEL. Le Mans at the other side dropped to the seventh position with eight games lost. They share it with Paris-Levallois and Strasbourg. Gravelines-Dunkerque is looking forward to face JDA Dijon (#17) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Le Mans will play against Strasbourg IG (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
ProA top team - Monaco (15-2) added another victory to their record. This time they beat eleventh ranked Limoges CSP Elite (7-10) 77-69. American-Azerbaijani forward Niklas Caner-Medley (203-83, college: Maryland, agency: BeoBasket) stepped up and scored 12 points and 8 rebounds for the winners and Zack Wright chipped in 7 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Monaco's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Slovenian guard Klemen Prepelic (191-92) responded with 20 points and 4 assists. Monaco have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain first place with 15-2 record. Limoges CSP Elite at the other side keeps the eleventh position with ten games lost. They share it with Chalons-Reims and Le Portel. Monaco will play against Le Portel (#12) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Limoges CSP Elite will play against Cholet Basket and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Paris-Levallois (9-8) and Hyeres-Toulon (8-9), which took place in Toulon. Higher ranked Paris-Levallois lost to eleventh ranked Hyeres-Toulon in a road game 65-70 on Friday. Ike Joseph Udanoh nailed 11 points for the winning side.

Paris-Levallois will play against Olympique Antibes (#15) and hope to secure a win.
Another upset was a game between Le Portel (7-10) and Olympique Antibes (6-11), which took place in Le Portel. Higher ranked Le Portel lost at home to seventeenth ranked Olympique Antibes 67-75. The best player for the winners was Tim Blue who scored 20 points and 6 rebounds. Olympique Antibes' coach Julien Espinosa allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.
