The round was exceptionally exciting as four games ended with a tiny margin. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Top ranked Provence Basket (13-3) recorded its third loss in Fos-sur-Mer on Tuesday night. Hosts were edged by second ranked JL Bourg (12-4) 75-72. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 32-18. But Provence Basket won second period 18-14. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Provence Basket 38-25 including 24 on the defensive glass. American center Zachery Peacock (203-87, college: Georgia Tech) fired 15 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Senegalese center Youssou Ndoye (213-91, college: St.Bonaventure) chipped in 12 points and 12 rebounds. American swingman Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) produced 20 points for lost side. JL Bourg have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 12-4 record behind leader Provence Basket. Provence Basket at the other side still keeps top place with three games lost. JL Bourg are looking forward to face ADA Blois (#8) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Provence Basket will play against Saint-Quentin (#16) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Charleville-Mezieres (11-5) against seventeenth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (5-11) on Tuesday night. Visiting Charleville-Mezieres was defeated by SO Maritime Boulogne in Boulogne-sur-Mer 83-67. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Teddy Gipson (191-80, college: Arkansas, agency: Court Side) who helped to win the game recording 30 points and 6 rebounds. Grismay Paumier contributed with 15 points, 6 rebounds and 4 blocks for the winners. American guard Jordan Fouse (201-94, college: Green Bay, agency: Three Eye Sports) replied with 13 points for Charleville-Mezieres. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. SO Maritime Boulogne maintains seventeenth position with 5-11 record. Charleville-Mezieres at the other side keeps the third place with five games lost. SO Maritime Boulogne will play against higher ranked Boulazac Basket (#9) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Charleville-Mezieres will play against Saint Chamond (#18) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Rouen between SPO Rouen and STB Le Havre. Sixteenth ranked SPO Rouen (6-10) got a very close home victory over higher ranked STB Le Havre (9-7). SPO Rouen managed to escape with a 1-point win 78-77 on Tuesday evening.

SPO Rouen moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with St Quentin and Poitiers. Loser STB Le Havre dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. SPO Rouen will meet higher ranked ALM Evreux (#12) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. STB Le Havre will play against Chorale de Roanne (#11) and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Aix-les-Bains. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of higher ranked Denain Voltaire (9-7) to twelfth ranked Aix-Maurienne (7-9) 76-75 on Tuesday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Denain Voltaire. The winners were led by Rayvonte Rice who scored that evening 19 points. Denain Voltaire's coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Aix-Maurienne moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Roanne and Evreux. Denain Voltaire at the other side dropped to the fourth position with seven games lost. Aix-Maurienne's next round opponent will be higher ranked Lille Metropole (#7) on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Denain Voltaire will play against Poitiers and hope to win that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Poitiers. Seventh ranked Lille Metropole (9-7) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging 13th ranked Poitiers (6-10) 71-70 on Tuesday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Jean-Victor Traore fired a double-double by scoring 20 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Lille Metropole moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Poitiers dropped to the fourteenth position with ten games lost. Lille Metropole will face Aix-Maurienne (#13) in Aix-les-Bains in the next round and are hoping to win another game.
