Jared Newson
The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between third ranked Souffelweyersheim (17-8) and seventeenth ranked Lorient (10-15) was the most important one in the last round on Saturday night. Souffelweyersheim was defeated by Lorient in a tough game in Lorient 65-71. The hosts trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 29-17 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. American forward Jared Newson (196-84, college: Tenn-Martin, agency: Inception Sports) fired 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Guard Mathieu Bigote (190-84) chipped in 19 points. Lithuanian power forward Giedrius Staniulis (205-91) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds for lost side. Lorient moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Souffelweyersheim at the other side keeps the third position with eight games lost. Lorient is looking forward to face league's leader Caen on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Souffelweyersheim will play against CFBB and is hoping to win this game.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Quimper. Second ranked Quimper UJAP faced 4th placed Rueil. Host Quimper UJAP (18-7) smashed guests from Rueil (16-9) 83-52. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Jahsha Bluntt (198-84, college: Delaware St.) who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field). Vyacheslav Bobrov contributed with 20 points (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. point guard Jeremy Bichard (186-90) answered with 12 points for Rueil. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Quimper UJAP maintains second place with 18-7 record behind leader Caen. Rueil at the other side keeps the fourth position with nine games lost. Quimper UJAP will play against Vitre (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Rueil will play against Vendee Challans (#13) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Leader Caen delivered the nineteenth victory on Saturday night. This time they beat 5th ranked Orchesien BC (15-10) 72-57 in Orchies. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Orchesien BC. Richie Gordon stepped up and scored 16 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Caen's coach Herve Coudray used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Sourata Cisse responded with 14 points (made all of his eight free throws). Caen (19-6) have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. They maintain first place. Loser Orchesien BC keeps the fifth position with ten games lost. They share it with GET Vosges. Caen will meet at home Lorient (#16) in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Orchesien BC will play against UB Chartres (#9) and hope to secure a win and be promoted back to the ProB just one year after relegation.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-25) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 100-57 loss to eighth ranked ALS Basket (13-12) in Paris. Bastien Tardy nailed 23 points (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field) for the winning side. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Newly promoted ALS Basket maintains eighth place with 13-12 record. CFBB lost their twenty fifth game in a row. They still close the standings. ALS Basket's next round opponent will be Gries/Oberhoffen (#11) in Bischwiller. CFBB will play on the road against Souffelweyersheim (#3) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Important game to mention about took place in Rennes. Twelfth ranked UB Chartres (12-13) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 14th ranked Union Rennes (10-15) 72-70 on Saturday evening. Olivier Romain fired 15 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Union Rennes' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. UB Chartres moved-up to ninth place, which they share with St Vallier and Gries/Oberhoffen. Union Rennes lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted Union Rennes keeps the fourteenth position with 15 games lost. UB Chartres will face higher ranked Orchesien BC (#6) in Orchies in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Union Rennes will play on the road against SAP Vaucluse (#14) in Sorgues and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games of round 25 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Lourdes defeated Challans in Tarbes 87-80. St Vallier smashed SAP Vaucluse at home 88-61. Angers BC was destroyed by Gries/Oberhoffen on the opponent's court 79-59. GET Vosges managed to outperform Vitre in a home game 79-67.

St Vallier - SAP Vaucluse 88-61

No shocking result in a game when tenth ranked Saint Vallier (12-13) smashed at home 15th ranked SAP Vaucluse (10-15) 88-61 on Saturday. The game without a history.
