Dee Bost
ProA top team - Monaco (18-2) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat tenth ranked Le Mans (9-11) 88-77. The hosts trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 53-41 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. 24 personal fouls committed by Le Mans helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American-Bulgarian point guard Dee Bost (188-89, college: Mississippi St., agency: BeoBasket) orchestrated the victory by scoring 22 points and 5 assists. American Jamal Shuler (191-86) contributed with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Monaco's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American point guard Giordan Watson (178-85, college: Cent.Michigan, agency: BeoBasket) replied with 20 points and 5 assists for Le Mans. Monaco have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 18-2 record. Le Mans lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the ninth place with 11 games lost. They share the position with Limoges and Hyeres-Toulon. Monaco are looking forward to face league's second-placed Chalon/Saor on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Le Mans will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#17) and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
The game in Villeurbanne was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (15-5) played at the court of 8th ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (10-10). Pau-Lacq-Orthez managed to secure a 9-point victory 72-63. Worth to mention a great performance of Zimbabwean power forward Vitalis Chikoko (207-91) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) and DJ Cooper who added 13 points and 7 assists during the contest. U.S. Virgin Islands-Puerto Rican point guard Walter Hodge (183-86, college: Florida) responded with 22 points and 4 assists. Pau-Lacq-Orthez have an impressive six-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Chalon. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket lost third consecutive game. Defending champion keeps the eighth position with ten games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Hyeres-Toulon (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Paris-Levallois and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Strasbourg was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (11-9) played at the court of eighth ranked Strasbourg IG (11-9). Strasbourg IG managed to secure a 8-point victory 72-64 on Saturday. The winners were led by Paul Lacombe who scored that evening 12 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Even a double-double of 16 points and 12 rebounds by Richard Solomon did not help to save the game for Gravelines-Dunkerque. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Strasbourg IG moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Gravelines. Strasbourg IG will meet bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against Limoges CSP Elite (#9) and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Cholet. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 14th ranked JDA Dijon (7-13) to fifteenth ranked Cholet Basket (7-13) 72-71 in the fight for the fourteenth place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of JDA Dijon. The best player for the winners was Ilian Evtimov who scored 17 points and 6 rebounds. Cholet Basket's coach Philippe Herve allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Cholet Basket moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Antibes and Dijon. Cholet Basket's next round opponent will be Olympique Antibes (#15) on the road.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Hyeres-Toulon (9-11) and Chalons-Reims (8-12), which took place in Toulon. 10th ranked Hyeres-Toulon was outleveled at home by thirteenth ranked Chalons-Reims 90-71 on Friday. Tyler Cain orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks (on 11-of-13 shooting from the field). Chalons-Reims moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Le Portel. Hyeres-Toulon at the other side dropped to the ninth position with 11 games lost. Chalons-Reims will face higher ranked JSF Nanterre (#4) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 20: Paris-Levallois smashed Nancy on the road 78-59. Orleans lost to Antibes on its own court 78-87. Le Portel unfortunately lost to Nanterre in a road game 66-76. Limoges recorded a loss to Chalon at home 70-82.

Nancy - Paris-Levallois 59-78

No shocking result in a game when fifth ranked Paris-Levallois (12-8) crushed on the road bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy (4-16) 78-59 on Monday. The guests trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 9-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 78-59. Paris-Levallois outrebounded Sluc Nancy 52-32 including a 36-17 advantage in defensive rebounds. The former international power forward Louis Labeyrie (209-92) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 17 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). The former international center Vincent Poirier (210-93) contributed with 13 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. Four Paris-Levallois players scored in double figures. Paris-Levallois' coach Frederic Fauthoux used an eleven-player rotation and allowed the starting five to rest. Canadian-Italian power forward Marc Trasolini (206-90, college: Santa Clara) replied with 19 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) and Spanish guard Alex Urtasun (193-84) added 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists in the effort for Sluc Nancy. Paris-Levallois have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fifth position with 12-8 record. Sluc Nancy at the other side stay at the bottom place with 16 games lost. Paris-Levallois will face ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#8) at home in the next round. Sluc Nancy will play against Strasbourg IG (#6) and hope to win that game.

Strasbourg - Gravelines 72-64

The game in Strasbourg was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (11-9) played at the court of eighth ranked Strasbourg IG (11-9). Strasbourg IG managed to secure a 8-point victory 72-64 on Saturday. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Gravelines-Dunkerque won third quarter 15-12. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Strasbourg IG looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists.

Orleans - Antibes 78-87

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both sixteenth ranked Olympique Antibes and 17th ranked Entente Orleans 45 had identical 6-13 record. But Entente Orleans 45 was not able to use a home court advantage and lost to the opponent from Antibes 87-78 on Saturday night.
