d'Almeida
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Quimper UJAP (17-6) at the home court on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by seventh ranked Lourdes-Tarbes (12-11) 82-76. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Quimper UJAP. Quimper UJAP trailed by 15 points after 3 quarters before a 26-17 run in the last quarter cut the deficit to 76-82 at the end of the game. Lourdes-Tarbes forced 19 Quimper UJAP turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. It was a great evening for the former international point guard Xane d'Almeida (181-83) who led his team to a victory scoring 20 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. The former international center Ludovic Vaty (206-88, college: Moraine Valley CC) helped adding 23 points. American forward Dwight Burke (202-86, college: Marquette) responded with 19 points and 6 rebounds. Quimper UJAP's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Lourdes-Tarbes maintains seventh place with 12-11 record. Quimper UJAP at the other side still keeps top position with six games lost. They share it with Caen and Souffel. Lourdes-Tarbes are looking forward to face SAP Vaucluse (#15) in Sorgues in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Quimper UJAP will play on the road against Vendee Challans (#14) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Orchies. Sixth ranked Orchesien BC (14-9) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 8th ranked ALS Basket (11-12) 86-84 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of ALS Basket. It was an exceptional evening for Montenegrin power forward Zarko Rakocevic (204-84, agency: Mansfield and Associates) who led the winners and scored 21 points and 4 assists. Anthony Racine accounted for 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. American point guard Jerrold Brooks (183-91, college: S.Mississippi, agency: Interperformances) came up with 29 points, 6 assists and 4 steals (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) for ALS Basket in the defeat. Orchesien BC have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with GET Vosges. Newly promoted ALS Basket keeps the eighth position with 12 games lost. They share it with Vitre and St Vallier. Orchesien BC will play against league's second-placed Souffelweyersheim on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. ALS Basket will play against Lorient (#17) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-23) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 23th consecutive match to tenth ranked Vitre (11-12) 84-59 on Saturday evening. The best player for the winners was Nikola Korac who had a double-double by scoring 19 points and 10 assists. Theo Maledon produced 12 points and 8 assists for the hosts. CFBB's coach Jean-Aime Toupane gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Vitre moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ALS Basket and St Vallier. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Vitre will meet at home Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in the next round. CFBB will play against Angers BC (#16) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Saint Vallier supposed to be also worth to mention about. Third ranked Caen (17-6) played at the court of 7th ranked Saint Vallier (11-12). Caen smashed Saint Vallier 96-75. BJ Monteiro orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 12 rebounds. Caen's coach Herve Coudray felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Caen have an impressive series of eight victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Quimper and Souffel. Saint Vallier lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth place with 12 games lost. Caen's next round opponent will be Union Rennes (#11) at home and are hoping to win another game. Saint Vallier will play against UB Chartres and hope to win that game.
Eleventh-ranked Union Rennes (10-13) gave a tough game to third ranked Souffelweyersheim (17-6) on Saturday. The visitors from Souffelweyersheim managed to secure only one-point victory 82-81. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a great evening for Giedrius Staniulis who led his team to a victory scoring 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Union Rennes' coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Souffelweyersheim keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Caen and Quimper. Newly promoted Union Rennes keeps the eleventh place with 13 games lost. Souffelweyersheim will face Orchesien BC (#6) in Orchies in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Union Rennes will play on the road against Caen (#3) and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 23: Angers BC lost to Lorient on the opponent's court 78-84. SAP Vaucluse managed to outperform Chartres in a home game 90-72. RAC Basket was rolled over Gries/Oberhoffen on the road 100-73. GET Vosges was defeated by Challans on its own court 56-62.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 23 points and 8 rebounds by Gregg Thondique of Gries/Oberhoffen.

Lorient - Angers BC 84-78

We cannot really consider it an upset in the game between close teams when 16th ranked Angers BC (9-14) was defeated on the road by seventeenth ranked Lorient (9-14) 84-78 on Saturday. Lorient moved-up to sixteenth place, which they share with defeated Angers BC. Angers BC lost their third game in a row. Lorient will face higher ranked ALS Basket (#8) in Andrezieux in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
