Paumier
The round was exceptionally exciting as three games ended with a tiny margin. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Round 19 in ProB means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Boulogne-sur-Mer where host SO Maritime Boulogne (7-12) crushed league's leader Provence Basket (14-5) 90-69 on Saturday evening. The game was mostly controlled by SO Maritime Boulogne. Provence Basket managed to win second period 22-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. SO Maritime Boulogne dominated down low during the game scoring 46 of its points in the paint compared to Provence Basket's 26. Cuban power forward Grismay Paumier (204-88) fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American guard Teddy Gipson (191-80, college: Arkansas, agency: Court Side) chipped in 19 points and 7 assists. American swingman Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) produced 16 points for lost side. Provence Basket's coach Remi Giutta gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. SO Maritime Boulogne maintains seventeenth place with 7-12 record, which they share with St Chamond. Provence Basket at the other side still keeps top position with five games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Bourg who have the same record. Provence Basket will play next round against JA Vichy trying to make it back to the top of the standings. SO Maritime Boulogne will try to continue on its current victory against twelfth ranked Denain Voltaire at home.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked JL Bourg as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Provence Basket) loss. JL Bourg defeated 5th ranked Nantes at home 80-72. Worth to mention a great performance of American center Zachery Peacock (203-87, college: Georgia Tech) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 23 points and 11 rebounds. Youssou Ndoye contributed with 14 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. JL Bourg's coach Savo Vucevic allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Latvian Rihards Kuksiks (197-88, college: Arizona St., agency: HMS) answered with 18 points (perfect behind the arc making all five shots) for Nantes. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Provence Basket. Nantes at the other side keeps the fifth place with nine games lost. They share the position with Le Havre and Blois. Nantes will play next round against Saint Chamond trying to get back on the winning streak. JL Bourg will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Chorale de Roanne on the road.
A very close game took place in Charleville between Lille Metropole and Charleville-Mezieres. Sixth ranked Lille Metropole (11-8) got a very close victory on the road over 3rd placed Charleville-Mezieres (11-8). Lille Metropole managed to escape with a 3-point win 74-71 in the fight for the third place. It was a great evening for Jean-Victor Traore who led his team to a victory scoring 17 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side Wilbert Brown responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds. Charleville-Mezieres' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Lille Metropole moved-up to third place, which they share with Charleville. Charleville-Mezieres lost fourth consecutive game. Lille Metropole will meet at home Boulazac Basket (#9) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Charleville-Mezieres will play against SPO Rouen (#15) and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked Saint Chamond managed to get the third consecutive victory. This time they outleveled fifth-ranked STB Le Havre 91-66. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 25-point difference suggests that Saint Chamond is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. It was an exceptional evening for Jean-Stephane Rinna who led the winners and scored 22 points and 7 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Saint Chamond have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to seventeenth place, which they share with Boulogne. STB Le Havre at the other side keeps the fifth position with nine games lost. Saint Chamond's next round opponent will be higher ranked Nantes (#5) at home and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. STB Le Havre will play against Aix-Maurienne in Aix-les-Bains and hope to win that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Boulazac. Twelfth ranked Boulazac Basket (9-10) saved a 2-point victory at home edging higher ranked Chorale de Roanne (9-10) 68-66 in the fight for the eighth place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Chorale de Roanne. Aurelien Salmon fired 13 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Boulazac Basket's coach Antoine Michon used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Boulazac Basket moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Chorale de Roanne. Boulazac Basket will face higher ranked Lille Metropole (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Other games of round 19 were very predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Poitiers defeated Vichy Clermont in a road game 77-75. St Quentin was beaten by Blois at home 53-62. Maurienne lost to Evreux on the opponent's court 64-82. Denain unfortunately lost to Rouen in a home game 57-75.
The best stats of 19th round was 20 points by Charles-Henri Bronchard of Vichy Clermont.

Bottom-ranked Saint Chamond managed to get the third consecutive victory. This time they outleveled fifth-ranked STB Le Havre 91-66.

Saint Chamond led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 19-of-22 charity shots (86.4 percent) during the game. Saint Chamond had a 27-16 advantage in offensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists.
