The Regular Season in NM1 is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 6 rounds.

The most exciting game of round 28 in the NM1 took place in Andrezieux. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of much higher ranked Quimper UJAP (20-8) to eighth ranked ALS Basket (15-13) 62-61 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Quimper UJAP. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Quimper UJAP won third quarter 12-11. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. ALS Basket shot 27 for 37 from the free-throw line, while Quimper UJAP only scored ten points from the stripe. 28 personal fouls committed by Quimper UJAP helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American point guard Jerrold Brooks (183-91, college: S.Mississippi, agency: Interperformances) fired 19 points and 4 assists for the winners. Bosnian power forward Nemanja Kovanusic (204-93) chipped in 8 points and 11 rebounds. American forward Dwight Burke (202-86, college: Marquette) produced 16 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Quimper UJAP's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. ALS Basket moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Orchies. Quimper UJAP at the other side keeps the second position with eight games lost. ALS Basket is looking forward to face Vendee Challans (#9) on the road in the next round. Quimper UJAP will play against Souffelweyersheim (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Caen delivered the twenty second victory. This time they crushed 12th ranked Gries/Oberhoffen (13-15) 95-68. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Cape Verdean swingman BJ Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. Richie Gordon contributed with 24 points for the winners. American forward Gregg Thondique (201-87, college: Virginia Union, agency: Octagon Europe) replied with a double-double by scoring 26 points, 16 rebounds and 4 assists for Gries/Oberhoffen. Caen (22-6) have an impressive 13-game winning streak. They maintain first position. Newly promoted Gries/Oberhoffen keeps the twelfth place with 15 games lost. Caen will play against GET Vosges (#5) in Golbey in the next round. Gries/Oberhoffen will play at home against UB Chartres (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-28) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 87-46 loss to ninth ranked UB Chartres (14-14) in Chartres on Saturday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Jonathan Mitchell who helped to win the game recording 20 points. At the losing side Joel Ayayi responded with 5 points and 6 assists. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. UB Chartres maintains ninth position with 14-14 record, which they share with St Vallier and Challans. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. UB Chartres will meet Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in the next round. CFBB will play against SAP Vaucluse (#13) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Thirteenth-ranked Union Rennes (11-17) made lots of trouble for seventh ranked Lourdes-Tarbes (16-12). Lourdes-Tarbes managed to secure only two-point victory 87-85. However their fans expected much easier game. The winners were led by Xane d'Almeida who had that evening a double-double by scoring 14 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Lourdes-Tarbes moved-up to fifth place, which they share with GET Vosges. Newly promoted Union Rennes dropped to the fifteenth position with 17 games lost. Lourdes-Tarbes' next round opponent will be Vitre (#14) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Union Rennes will play against Orchesien BC in Orchies and hope to win that game.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Saint Vallier, where higher ranked Orchesien BC (15-13) lost to eleventh ranked Saint Vallier (14-14) in a road game 86-90 on Saturday. Steffon Bradford fired 24 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. Saint Vallier moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Challans and Chartres. Orchesien BC lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh position with 13 games lost. Saint Vallier will face Lorient (#15) on the road in the next round where they are favorite.

Rest of the games of round 28 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
RAC Basket was defeated by Vitre in a road game 83-74. Angers BC was beaten by Challans at home 81-90. Lorient lost to SAP Vaucluse on the opponent's court 62-77. Souffel managed to outperform GET Vosges in a home game 74-58.
The best stats of 28th round was 12 points, 7 assists and 4 steals by Olivier Romain of Chartres.

But then Caen had a 24-16 second period charge getting the lead and Gries/Oberhoffen was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 68-95. Caen forced 21 Gries/Oberhoffen turnovers. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 27 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Cape Verdean swingman BJ Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists.

Chartres - CFBB 87-46

Souffel - GET Vosges 74-58

Joel Ayayi
Gonzaga lands their first post-Final Four commitment - 2 days ago
Gonzaga capitalized on their run to the national title game by landing a commitment from French point guard Joel Ayayi(6'4''-PG-00), who announced the news on twitter. Ayayi is an interesting long-term prospect, according to Draft Express. He has the size and the frame to eventually be a significant contributor in the college game, but he's raw. His handle needs work, as does his ability to create off the dribble and find teammates off of the bounce. That said, he's 6-foot-4 with a 6-foot...   [read more]
