Gordon
NM1 top team - Caen (20-6) added another victory to their record on Friday. This time they beat sixteenth ranked Lorient (10-16) 97-92. Caen forced 21 Lorient turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. American power forward Richie Gordon (203-89, college: W.Carolina) orchestrated the victory by scoring 27 points and 7 rebounds. American-Cape Verdean swingman BJ Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) contributed with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American forward Michael Craion (195-89, college: ORU) replied with 22 points and 9 rebounds for Lorient. Caen have an impressive 11-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 20-6 record. Newly promoted Lorient keeps the sixteenth place with 16 games lost. They share the position with SAP Vaucluse. Caen are looking forward to face bottom-ranked CFBB (#18) in Paris in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Lorient will play at home against UB Chartres and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 26th consecutive match to third ranked Souffelweyersheim (18-8) 98-52. Lithuanian power forward Giedrius Staniulis (205-91) had a double-double by scoring 11 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Ruphin Kayembe chipped in 16 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) during the contest. Forward Ivan Fevrier (203-99) responded with 14 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Souffelweyersheim maintains third position with 18-8 record having just two points less than leader Caen. CFBB at the other side still closes the standings. Souffelweyersheim will play against Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in Bischwiller in the next round and are hoping to win another game. CFBB will play at home against the league's leader Caen (#1) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very close game took place in Andrezieux between ALS Basket and Gries/Oberhoffen. Eighth ranked ALS Basket (14-12) got a very close home victory over 10th ranked Gries/Oberhoffen (12-14). ALS Basket managed to escape with a 2-point win 85-83 on Friday evening. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Gries/Oberhoffen. Perris Blackwell notched a double-double by scoring 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the effort. Even a double-double of 17 points and 10 assists by Ovidijus Varanauskas did not help to save the game for Gries/Oberhoffen. Gries/Oberhoffen's coach Ludovic Pouillart rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. ALS Basket have a solid three-game winning streak. Newly promoted ALS Basket maintains eighth position with 14-12 record. Gries/Oberhoffen at the other side, also newcomer in the league, keeps the tenth place with 14 games lost. They share the position with St Vallier and Challans. ALS Basket will meet higher ranked GET Vosges (#5) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Gries/Oberhoffen will play against Souffelweyersheim (#3) and hope to secure a win.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Orchesien BC (15-11) and UB Chartres (13-13), which took place in Chartres. Higher ranked Orchesien BC lost to ninth ranked UB Chartres in a road game 82-90. The best player for the winners was Harry Disy who had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds. UB Chartres have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain ninth position with 13-13 record. Orchesien BC at the other side keeps the fifth place with 11 games lost. UB Chartres' next round opponent will be Lorient (#16) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Orchesien BC will play against SAP Vaucluse (#17) and hope to win that game and get promotion back to the ProB just one year after relegation.
Another upset was a game between GET Vosges (15-11) and Angers BC (11-15), which took place in Angers. Higher ranked GET Vosges lost to seventeenth ranked Angers BC in a road game 76-84 on Friday. Auston Calhoun orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 12 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Angers BC moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Vitre and Rennes. Loser GET Vosges keeps the fifth position with 11 games lost. Angers BC will face league's second-placed Quimper UJAP on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. GET Vosges will play against ALS Basket and hope to win that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 26: Rennes beat SAP Vaucluse on the road 87-74. Vitre lost to Quimper on its own court 63-73. St Vallier unfortunately lost to Lourdes in Tarbes 81-89. RAC Basket recorded a loss to Challans at home 81-85.

SAP Vaucluse - Rennes 74-87

Everything could happen in Sorgues at the game between two tied teams. Both fifteenth ranked Union Rennes and 16th ranked SAP Vaucluse had identical 10-15 record. But SAP Vaucluse was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Rennes 87-74 on Saturday night. The game was mostly controlled by Union Rennes. SAP Vaucluse was better in second period 20-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Union Rennes won last quarter 30-18. Union Rennes dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to SAP Vaucluse's 30. Senegalese guard El-Kabir Pene (190-84) orchestrated the victory by scoring 13 points. American forward Anthony Hill (204-88, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) contributed with 14 points for the winners. Lithuanian forward Darius Tarvydas (200-91) replied with 18 points and Bahamas forward Bennet Davis (206-84, college: Northeastern, agency: Inception Sports) added 14 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for SAP Vaucluse. Four Union Rennes and five SAP Vaucluse players scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Union Rennes (11-15) moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Angers BC and Vitre. SAP Vaucluse lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixteenth position with 16 games lost. Union Rennes will face higher ranked Saint Vallier (#10) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. SAP Vaucluse will play against Orchesien BC (#7) in Orchies and hope to win that game.

Vitre - Quimper 63-73

Very expected game when 13th ranked Vitre (11-15) lost at home to second ranked Quimper UJAP (19-7) 73-63 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Quimper UJAP. Vitre was better in third quarter 27-19. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Vitre to just 6 points in first quarter. Quimper UJAP made 20-of-23 free shots (87.0 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. American forward Dwight Burke (202-86, college: Marquette) orchestrated the victory by scoring 21 points and 5 rebounds. Ukrainian forward Vyacheslav Bobrov (201-92) contributed with 15 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Burke is a former Eurobasket Summer League player, which is considered top international summer league in the market. Five Quimper UJAP players scored in double figures. Montenegrin guard Nikola Korac (185-86) replied with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 assists and Montenegrin center Aleksandar Radulovic (207-83) added 12 points and 13 rebounds in the effort for Vitre. Quimper UJAP maintains second position with 19-7 record behind leader Caen. Vitre lost third consecutive game. They keep the thirteenth place with 15 games lost. Quimper UJAP will face Angers BC (#15) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Vitre will play against Vendee Challans and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Souffel - CFBB 98-52

Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 26th consecutive match to third ranked Souffelweyersheim (18-8) 98-52. The game was mostly controlled by Souffelweyersheim. CFBB was better in second period 21-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding CFBB to just 5 points in third quarter. Souffelweyersheim dominated down low during the game scoring 50 of its points in the paint compared to CFBB's 24. Souffelweyersheim had a 26-13 advantage in offensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three nailing 13 long-distance shots on high 59.1 percentage. Souffelweyersheim players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by CFBB's players. Lithuanian power forward Giedrius Staniulis (205-91) had a double-double by scoring 11 points, 5 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the charge for the winners and DR Congolese-Belgian power forward Ruphin Kayembe (200-92) chipped in 16 points and 7 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) during the contest. Five Souffelweyersheim players scored in double figures. Forward Ivan Fevrier (203-99) responded with 14 points and 5 rebounds and guard Sofiane Briki (190-99) scored 11 points. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.

Chartres - Orchies 90-82

Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Orchesien BC (15-11) and UB Chartres (13-13), which took place in Chartres. Higher ranked Orchesien BC lost to ninth ranked UB Chartres in a road game 82-90. Orchesien BC was ahead by 11 points after three quarters before a 34-15 charge of UB Chartres, which allowed them to win the game. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 25 assists.
