The game between Top Four teams took place in Chalon. 3rd placed host Chalon/Saor (15-6) lost to first ranked Monaco (19-2) 82-72. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. The game was mostly controlled by Monaco. Chalon/Saor managed to win fourth quarter 19-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Monaco looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. American-Bosnian guard Zack Wright (191-85, college: Central Mo.) stepped up and scored 11 points and 9 assists for the winners and American Jamal Shuler (191-86) chipped in 12 points. Monaco's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was center Moustapha Fall (218-92) with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 16 rebounds. Monaco have an impressive series of ten victories in a row. They maintain first place with 19-2 record. Chalon/Saor at the other side keeps the third position with six games lost. They share it with Nanterre. Monaco are looking forward to face JSF Nanterre (#4) on the road in the next round. Chalon/Saor will play against ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Paris-Levallois (#5) was upset in Levallois by eighth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket 86-70. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Paris-Levallois.

Paris-Levallois at the other side keeps the fifth position with nine games lost. They share it with Strasbourg. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against higher ranked Chalon/Saor (#3) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Paris-Levallois will play against Le Mans and hopes to get back on the winning track.
An interesting game took place in Gravelines where 7th ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (11-10) was upset on its own court by tenth ranked Limoges CSP Elite (10-11) 88-77 on Monday.

13th ranked Chalons-Reims (8-13) was outscored at home by fourth ranked JSF Nanterre (15-6) with the biggest margin this round 93-73. It was a good game for Brian Conklin who led his team to a victory with 26 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the fifth consecutive win for JSF Nanterre. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Chalon. Chalons-Reims at the other side keeps the thirteenth position with 13 games lost. JSF Nanterre's next round opponent will be league's leader Monaco at home and it will be for sure the game of the week. Chalons-Reims will play against JDA Dijon (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 21: Hyeres-Toulon lost to Pau-Lacq-Orthez on the opponent's court 70-85.

Pau-Lacq-Orthez - Hyeres-Toulon 85-70

Very expected game when 10th ranked Hyeres-Toulon (9-12) was defeated on the road by third ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (16-5) 85-70. It looked good early as Hyeres-Toulon took a 2-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Pau-Lacq-Orthez had a 22-12 second period charge getting the lead and Hyeres-Toulon was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 70-85. Pau-Lacq-Orthez players were unselfish on offense dishing 31 assists comparing to just 11 passes made by Hyeres-Toulon's players. It was a good game for the former international center Alain Koffi (207-83, agency: BeoBasket) who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 7 rebounds. American guard Taquan Dean (193-83, college: Louisville, agency: Two Points) contributed with 21 points and 5 assists for the winners. American forward Paul Carter (205-87, college: Ill.-Chicago, agency: Inception Sports) answered with 12 points and 5 rebounds and point guard David Michineau (191-94) added 11 points in the effort for Hyeres-Toulon. Four Pau-Lacq-Orthez and five Hyeres-Toulon players scored in double figures. Hyeres-Toulon's coach Kyle Milling tested eleven players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the seventh consecutive win for Pau-Lacq-Orthez. They moved-up to second place. Hyeres-Toulon lost their third game in a row. They dropped to the eleventh position with 12 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's next round opponent will be Strasbourg IG (#6) on the road. Hyeres-Toulon will play against Le Portel (#11) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Nancy - Strasbourg 71-80

Very predictable result when sixth ranked Strasbourg IG (12-9) defeated on the road bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy (4-17) 80-71. The guests were already 17 points ahead at halftime and as many as 20 after three quarters before a 21-10 last quarter charge of Sluc Nancy cut the lead to 80-71 at the end of the game. They outrebounded Sluc Nancy 41-30 including a 20-9 advantage in offensive rebounds. Strasbourg IG players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. It was a good game for international center Mouhammadou Jaiteh (208-94, agency: BeoBasket) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 13 rebounds.
