D.J. Cooper
There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Pau. Third ranked host Pau-Lacq-Orthez (13-5) defeated second-best Chalon/Saor (13-5) 95-88. Chalon/Saor was trailing by 4 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 31-23 charge of Pau-Lacq-Orthez, which allowed them to win the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Chalon/Saor's players. American point guard D.J. Cooper (183-90, college: Ohio) scored 17 points and 9 assists to lead the charge for the winners and point guard Elie Okobo (191-97) chipped in 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was American swingman Cameron Clark (201-91, college: Oklahoma) with 33 points (!!!) and 7 rebounds. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Chalon. Pau-Lacq-Orthez is looking forward to face Entente Orleans 45 (#15) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Chalon/Saor will play against Cholet Basket (#17) and is hoping to win this game.
Bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy managed to get a fourth victory, breaking the three-game losing streak. This time they won against thirteenth-ranked Chalons-Reims 89-80. American-Montenegrin point guard Brion Rush (186-84, college: Grambling St., agency: Three Eye Sports) notched 24 points and 7 assists to lead the effort and Alex Urtasun supported him with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Even 15 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists by American forward Steven Smith (203-83, college: La Salle) did not help to save the game for Chalons-Reims. Sluc Nancy maintains eighteenth position with 4-14 record. Chalons-Reims at the other side dropped to the twelfth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Le Portel. Sluc Nancy will play against higher ranked Le Portel (#12) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Chalons-Reims will play against Paris-Levallois and hopes to get back on the winning track.
ProA top team - Monaco (16-2) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Le Portel (7-11) 81-57. The best player for the winners was Dee Bost who scored 9 points and 11 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Franklin Hassell who recorded a double-double by scoring 16 points and 10 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Monaco have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 16-2 record. Le Portel lost third consecutive game. They keep the twelfth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Chalons-Reims. Monaco will meet Olympique Antibes (#16) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Le Portel will play against Sluc Nancy (#18) and hope to secure a win.
The game in Villeurbanne was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked JSF Nanterre (12-6) played at the court of 5th ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (10-8). JSF Nanterre defeated ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket 88-74. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket. It was a good game for Spencer Butterfield who led his team to a victory with 20 points and 5 rebounds. JSF Nanterre maintains fourth position with 12-6 record. Defending champion ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket keeps the fifth place with eight games lost. JSF Nanterre's next round opponent will be Le Mans (#10) on the road where they are favorite. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Gravelines. Seventeenth ranked JDA Dijon (6-12) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging higher ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (10-8) 89-87 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the home team. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Gravelines-Dunkerque. Isaiah Miles scored 23 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. JDA Dijon moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser Gravelines-Dunkerque keeps the fifth position with eight games lost. JDA Dijon will face higher ranked Hyeres-Toulon (#9) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 18: Limoges won against Cholet on the opponent's court 68-61. Strasbourg outscored Le Mans in a home game 92-63. Orleans recorded a loss to Hyeres-Toulon on the road 78-61. Paris-Levallois crushed Antibes on its own court 86-67.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 12 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists by Romeo Travis of Strasbourg.

Cholet - Limoges 61-68

Rather expected game when 14th ranked Cholet Basket (6-12) was defeated at home by eleventh ranked Limoges CSP Elite (8-10) 68-61 on Monday. The guests trailed by 3 points at the halftime before their 39-29 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. American guard William Buford (196-90, college: Ohio St., agency: Two Points) scored 17 points and 8 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Slovenian guard Klemen Prepelic (191-92) chipped in 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was center Jerry Boutsiele (207-92) with 23 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists and the former international point guard Jonathan Rousselle (187-90) scored 6 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Limoges CSP Elite maintains eleventh position with 8-10 record. Cholet Basket lost third consecutive game. They keep the fourteenth place with 12 games lost. Limoges CSP Elite will face higher ranked Strasbourg IG (#8) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Cholet Basket will play against the league's second-placed Chalon/Saor (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked Strasbourg IG and 8th ranked Le Mans had identical 9-8 record.
