Kyle Tresnak
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Caen (22-7) in Golbey on Saturday night. Visitors were edged by fifth ranked GET Vosges (17-12) 72-69. It ended at the same time the 13-game winning streak of Caen. Caen was trailing by 6 points at halftime but managed to get 4-point lead after three quarters before a 20-13 charge of GET Vosges, which allowed them to win the game. GET Vosges outrebounded Caen 40-23 including a 31-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when GET Vosges made 8 blocks. 25 personal fouls committed by Caen helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American center Kyle Tresnak (208-92, college: Weber St.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points and 7 rebounds. Malcolm Gountas (189-94) contributed with 11 points for the winners. American-Cape Verdean swingman BJ Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) answered with 18 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for Caen. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. GET Vosges maintains fifth place with 17-12 record, which they share with Lourdes. Caen at the other side still keeps top position with seven games lost. GET Vosges is looking forward to face UB Chartres (#10) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Caen will play against the league's second-placed Quimper UJAP (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Quimper UJAP (21-8) which hosted in Quimper 3rd placed Souffelweyersheim (19-10). Second ranked Quimper UJAP had an easy win 80-52. Point guard Maxime Choplin (181-92) stepped up and scored 14 points and 9 assists for the winners and Vyacheslav Bobrov chipped in 15 points. Quimper UJAP's coach Laurent Foirest felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Lithuanian power forward Giedrius Staniulis (205-91) responded with 15 points. Quimper UJAP maintains second place with 21-8 record behind leader Caen. Souffelweyersheim at the other side keeps the third position with ten games lost. Quimper UJAP will play against league's leader Caen on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Souffelweyersheim will play against Vendee Challans and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 29th consecutive match to thirteenth ranked SAP Vaucluse (13-16) 70-61 on Saturday evening. Deremy Geiger nailed 20 points and 4 assists for the winning side. Theo Maledon came up with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for CFBB in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. SAP Vaucluse have a solid series of three victories in a row. They moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Gries/Oberhoffen. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. SAP Vaucluse will meet at home Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in the next round. CFBB will play against Saint Vallier (#11) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Seventeenth-ranked Angers BC (11-18) was very close to win a game against fourth ranked Rueil (18-11). Rueil managed to secure only two-point victory 84-82. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Ron Anderson who scored 27 points and 9 rebounds. Rueil maintains fourth place with 18-11 record. Angers BC lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the sixteenth position with 18 games lost. Rueil's next round opponent will be ALS Basket (#9) in Andrezieux which should be theoretically an easy game. Angers BC will play at home against Vitre (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Saint Vallier (14-15) and Lorient (12-17), which took place in Lorient. Higher ranked Saint Vallier lost to fifteenth ranked Lorient in a road game 64-81 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Saint Vallier. Michael Craion orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 29 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Saint Vallier's coach rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Lorient moved-up to fourteenth place, which they share with Vitre. Loser Saint Vallier keeps the eleventh position with 15 games lost. Lorient will face Union Rennes (#16) on the road in the next round.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 29: ALS Basket was beaten by Challans on the road 102-88. Vitre lost to Lourdes on its own court 74-78. Chartres managed to outperform Gries/Oberhoffen in a road game 97-87. Orchies managed to beat Rennes at home 81-67.

Challans - ALS Basket 102-88

There was a small surprise when tenth ranked Vendee Challans (15-14) beat at home 8th ranked ALS Basket (15-14) 102-88 on Saturday. ALS Basket was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Vendee Challans dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to ALS Basket's 40. Naturalized Mali point guard Ibrahim Saounera (179-87) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. American center Demarco Cox (203-90, college: Georgia Tech) contributed with 21 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. American forward Perris Blackwell (205-91, college: Washington) answered with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 11 rebounds and the other American import point guard Jerrold Brooks (183-91, college: S.Mississippi, agency: Interperformances) added 15 points in the effort for ALS Basket. Four Vendee Challans and five ALS Basket players scored in double figures. Vendee Challans have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ALS Basket and Chartres. Vendee Challans will face higher ranked Souffelweyersheim (#3) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

Vitre - Lourdes 74-78

Very expected game when 14th ranked Vitre (12-17) lost at home to sixth ranked Lourdes-Tarbes (17-12) 78-74 on Saturday. Vitre was tied after three quarters but could not keep up in the last quarter eventually losing the game. Lourdes-Tarbes looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists.

Gries/Oberhoffen - Chartres 87-97

Rather predictable result when tenth ranked UB Chartres (15-14) won against 12th ranked Gries/Oberhoffen (13-16) in Bischwiller 97-87 on Saturday. The guests trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 51-37 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game.

Orchies - Rennes 81-67

Not a big story in a game when 16th ranked Union Rennes (11-18) lost to eighth ranked Orchesien BC (16-13) in Orchies 67-81 on Saturday. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 14-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 81-67.
