There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked JL Bourg (15-6) at the home court on Tuesday night. Hosts were defeated by fifth ranked Lille Metropole (12-9) 68-59. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of JL Bourg. The guests were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. American point guard Deonte Burton (183-91, college: Nevada) stepped up and scored 23 points for the winners and naturalized Burkinabe Jean-Victor Traore (204-85) chipped in 5 points and 12 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Senegalese center Youssou Ndoye (213-91, college: St.Bonaventure) with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 12 rebounds. JL Bourg's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Lille Metropole moved-up to third place, which they share with Blois and Charleville. JL Bourg at the other side still keeps top position with six games lost. They share it with Provence Basket. Lille Metropole is looking forward to face Denain Voltaire (#12) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

A very close game took place in Nantes between Poitiers and Nantes. Eleventh ranked Poitiers (10-11) got a very close victory on the road over higher ranked Nantes (10-11).

Blois - Boulogne 86-80

Very expected game when 15th ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (8-13) was defeated on the road by fifth ranked ADA Blois (12-9) 86-80 on Tuesday.
