There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Round 18 most important game was a defeat of league's leader JL Bourg (13-5). They were defeated by thirteenth ranked Aix-Maurienne (8-10) 91-82 on Friday night. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of JL Bourg. JL Bourg was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Aix-Maurienne made 18-of-22 free shots (81.8 percent) during the game. They shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 56.5 percentage. 26 personal fouls committed by JL Bourg helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Naturalized Algerian Karim Atamna (196-80) scored 22 points and 5 rebounds (perfect from downtown making all five shots) to lead the charge for the winners and Gambian forward Moses Sonko (196-83, college: Co.Carolina, agency: HMS) chipped in 13 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. The best for the losing side was American point guard Garrett Sim (188-90, college: Oregon) with 24 points. JL Bourg's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Aix-Maurienne moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 5 other teams. JL Bourg at the other side dropped to the second position with five games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Provence Basket. JL Bourg will play next round against Nantes trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Aix-Maurienne will try to continue on its current victory against fifteenth ranked ALM Evreux on the road.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Provence Basket as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Provence Basket defeated 11th ranked Boulazac Basket in Fos-sur-Mer 75-57. American-Nigerian Derrick Obasohan (198-81, college: Texas Arlington, agency: BeoBasket) notched 19 points and 7 rebounds to lead the effort and Aaron Broussard supported him with 10 points and 8 rebounds. Even 14 points and 8 rebounds by American power forward Jarvis Williams (198-93, college: Murray St.) did not help to save the game for Boulazac Basket. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. As mentioned above they took over a top position. Boulazac Basket at the other side dropped to the tenth place with ten games lost. They share the position with 5 other teams. Boulazac Basket will play next round against Chorale de Roanne trying to get back on the winning streak. Provence Basket will try to continue on its current victory against seventeenth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne at Boulogne-sur-Mer.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Charleville-Mezieres (11-7) against fourteenth ranked Poitiers (8-10) on Friday night. Visiting Charleville-Mezieres was defeated by Poitiers in Poitiers 90-74. The best player for the winners was Mickael Var who scored 16 points and 9 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was Wilbert Brown who recorded 23 points. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Poitiers moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 5 other teams. Charleville-Mezieres lost third consecutive game. They keep the third position with seven games lost. Poitiers will meet JA Vichy (#11) on the road in the next round. Charleville-Mezieres will play against Lille Metropole (#6) and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked Saint Chamond managed to get the second consecutive victory. This time they won against ninth-ranked JA Vichy 92-80. It was a good game for Matthieu Guichard who led his team to a victory with 13 points and 7 assists. Saint Chamond (6-12) moved-up to seventeenth place, which they share with Boulogne. JA Vichy lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the tenth position with ten games lost. Saint Chamond's next round opponent will be higher ranked STB Le Havre (#4) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Nantes. Fifteenth ranked Saint-Quentin (8-10) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging higher ranked Nantes (10-8) 68-66 on Friday evening. Ryan Rhoomes had a double-double by scoring 11 points and 10 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. Saint-Quentin's coach Jerome Navier used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Saint-Quentin moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 5 other teams. Loser Nantes dropped to the fourth position with eight games lost. Saint-Quentin will face higher ranked ADA Blois (#8) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Nantes will play against the league's second-placed JL Bourg (#2) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 18: Denain lost to Blois on the opponent's court 70-73. Rouen managed to outperform Boulogne in a home game 82-78. Evreux was rolled over Roanne on the road 65-95. Lille was defeated by Le Havre on its own court 65-72.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 10 points and 7 rebounds by Jean-Stephane Rinna of St Chamond.

British-Ghanian center Eric Boateng (208-85, college: Arizona St.) had a double-double by scoring 12 points and 14 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and American point guard Frank Turner (178-88, college: Canisius, agency: Inception Sports) chipped in 14 points and 9 assists during the contest.

This time Chorale de Roanne used a home court advantage and rolled over the opponent from Evreux 95-65 on Friday night. The game was mostly controlled by Chorale de Roanne.
