There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

Top ranked Monaco (19-3) recorded its third loss on the court of fourth ranked JSF Nanterre on Saturday night. Visitors were defeated by JSF Nanterre 99-88. It ended at the same time the ten-game winning streak of Monaco. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in the league. The game was mostly controlled by JSF Nanterre. Monaco managed to win fourth quarter 27-26. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. JSF Nanterre shot 62.3 percent from the field and made 24-of-28 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game, while Monaco only scored four points from the stripe. It was a great shooting night for JSF Nanterre especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 60.0 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by Monaco helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American swingman Spencer Butterfield (190-92, college: Utah St., agency: Three Eye Sports) fired 23 points for the winners. Mathias Lessort (205-95) chipped in 20 points and 5 rebounds. American-Bulgarian point guard Dee Bost (188-89, college: Mississippi St., agency: BeoBasket) produced 25 points for lost side. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. JSF Nanterre (16-6) have an impressive six-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Chalon. Monaco at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. JSF Nanterre is 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. Monaco will play against Chalons-Reims and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (16-6) against sixth ranked Strasbourg IG (13-9) on Sunday night. Visiting Pau-Lacq-Orthez was defeated by Strasbourg IG in a tough game in Strasbourg 58-67. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Paul Lacombe (195-90, agency: BeoBasket) who helped to win the game recording 18 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Romeo Travis contributed with 12 points and 12 rebounds for the winners. American point guard DJ Cooper (183-90, college: Ohio) replied with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 assists for Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Strasbourg IG have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side keeps the second position with six games lost. They share it with Chalon and Nanterre. Strasbourg IG will play against Olympique Antibes (#16) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Le Mans (#11) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy managed to get a fifth victory, breaking the three-game losing streak on Saturday night. This time they edged fourteenth-ranked Cholet Basket 85-82. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Cholet Basket. Brion Rush scored 20 points and 9 assists (made all of his nine free throws !!!) to lead the charge for the winners. At the losing side Angel Rodriguez responded with 15 points and 4 assists. Sluc Nancy maintains eighteenth position with 5-17 record. Loser Cholet Basket dropped to the thirteenth place with 14 games lost. They share the position with Dijon and Chalons-Reims. Sluc Nancy will meet at home higher ranked JDA Dijon (#13) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Cholet Basket will play against Paris-Levallois and hope to secure a win.
The game in Villeurbanne was also worth to mention about. Third ranked Chalon/Saor (16-6) played at the court of 7th ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (11-11). Chalon/Saor managed to secure a 9-point victory 77-68. Cameron Clark notched 26 points to lead the effort. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Chalon/Saor moved-up to second place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Nanterre. Defending champion ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket dropped to the eighth position with 11 games lost. Chalon/Saor's next round opponent will be JSF Nanterre (#3) at home, which may be the game of the day. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#17) and hope to win that game.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Limoges. Local Limoges CSP Elite (11-11) outscored 16th ranked Olympique Antibes (7-15) 95-66 on Saturday night. Klemen Prepelic fired 25 points and 5 assists for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Limoges CSP Elite moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ASVEL. Loser Olympique Antibes keeps the sixteenth position with 15 games lost. Limoges CSP Elite will face Le Portel (#10) on the road in the next round. Olympique Antibes will play against Strasbourg IG (#6) and hope to win that game.

Rest of the games of round 22 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Gravelines defeated Orleans in a road game 67-59. Le Mans was smashed by Paris-Levallois at home 44-68. Chalons-Reims lost to Dijon on the opponent's court 73-86. Hyeres-Toulon unfortunately lost to Le Portel in a home game 67-72.
