The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between third ranked Charleville-Mezieres (13-10) and fourteenth ranked Saint Chamond (10-13) was the most important one in the last round on Friday night. Charleville-Mezieres was defeated by Saint Chamond in a tough game in Saint Chamond 79-84. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Charleville-Mezieres. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 10-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 84-79. Saint Chamond forced 19 Charleville-Mezieres turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. Jonathan Hoyaux (195-88) orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points and 7 rebounds. Lithuanian point guard Eigirdas Zukauskas (203-92) contributed with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Naturalized Ivorian center Mohamed Kone (211-81, college: Valparaiso) answered with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 12 rebounds for Charleville-Mezieres. Charleville-Mezieres' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Saint Chamond moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with 4 other teams. Charleville-Mezieres at the other side dropped to the fourth position with ten games lost. They share it with Blois. Saint Chamond is looking forward to face Saint-Quentin (#15) on the road in the next round. Charleville-Mezieres will play against STB Le Havre (#7) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Provence Basket (16-7) against ninth ranked Nantes (12-11) on Friday night. Visiting Provence Basket was defeated by Nantes in Nantes 81-63. It was a great evening for American Christopher McKnight (201-87, college: Akron, agency: Octagon Europe) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds. Laurence Ekperigin helped adding 16 points and 9 rebounds. American swingman Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) responded with 15 points. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Nantes moved-up to sixth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Provence Basket at the other side keeps the second position with seven games lost. Nantes will play against Boulazac Basket (#9) on the road in the next round. Provence Basket will play against Lille Metropole (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
ProB top team - JL Bourg (17-6) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed sixth ranked ALM Evreux (12-11) 87-66.

A very interesting game took place in Denain. It ended with only three-point home defeat of 12th ranked Denain Voltaire (10-13) to thirteenth ranked Chorale de Roanne (10-13) 70-67 in the game for the eleventh place.
