Souffel - Chartres 74-69

Very predictable result when second ranked Souffelweyersheim (15-5) defeated at home 8th ranked UB Chartres (10-10) 74-69 on Saturday. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But UB Chartres won third quarter 26-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Souffelweyersheim won last quarter 14-10. Worth to mention a great performance of Valentin Correia (192-93) who helped to win the game recording 20 points and DR Congolese-Belgian power forward Ruphin Kayembe (200-92) who added 15 points and 9 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field) during the contest.
