Petrovic
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds.

The most important game in the last round took place in Souffelweyersheim between third ranked Souffelweyersheim (19-11) and tenth ranked Vendee Challans (16-14) on Saturday night. Souffelweyersheim was defeated by Vendee Challans in a tough game at home 80-86. 27 personal fouls committed by Souffelweyersheim helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Serbian Djordje Petrovic (202-84) scored 23 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Emmanuel Monceau (195-95) chipped in 14 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American point guard Fabyon Harris (180-91, college: Texas A&M) with 22 points and 6 assists. Vendee Challans have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ALS Basket and Chartres. Souffelweyersheim at the other side keeps the third position with 11 games lost. Vendee Challans is looking forward to face league's leader Caen at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Souffelweyersheim will play against Rueil and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Caen. First ranked host Caen (23-7) defeated second-best Quimper UJAP (21-9) 76-64. American-Cape Verdean swingman BJ Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) notched 18 points to lead the effort and Moustapha Diarra supported him with 9 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Even 16 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists by American guard Jahsha Bluntt (198-84, college: Delaware St.) did not help to save the game for Quimper UJAP. Caen maintains first position with 23-7 record. Quimper UJAP at the other side keeps the second place with nine games lost. Caen will play against Vendee Challans (#8) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Quimper UJAP will play against UB Chartres (#10) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-30) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 30th consecutive match to eleventh ranked Saint Vallier (15-15) 99-77 on Saturday evening. The best player for the winners was Steffon Bradford who scored 24 points and 6 rebounds (on 12-of-13 shooting from the field). At the other side the best for losing team was Theo Maledon who recorded 12 points and 5 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. Saint Vallier maintains eleventh position with 15-15 record. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Saint Vallier will meet Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in the next round. CFBB will play against Union Rennes (#17) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
A very interesting game took place in Andrezieux. It ended with only one-point defeat on the road of higher ranked Rueil (18-12) to ninth ranked ALS Basket (16-14) 72-71 on Saturday evening. It was a good game for Jerrold Brooks who saved his team from a defeat with 27 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals. ALS Basket's coach Jeremy Beaufort allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. ALS Basket moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Challans and Chartres. Rueil at the other side keeps the fourth position with 12 games lost. ALS Basket's next round opponent will be Vitre (#16) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Rueil will play against Souffelweyersheim (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Chartres where higher ranked GET Vosges (17-13) was upset on the court of tenth ranked UB Chartres (16-14) 89-77 on Saturday. Jonathan Mitchell scored 21 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. UB Chartres have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ALS Basket and Challans. Loser GET Vosges keeps the fifth position with 13 games lost. UB Chartres will face league's second-placed Quimper UJAP on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. GET Vosges will play against SAP Vaucluse and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 30: Gries/Oberhoffen won against SAP Vaucluse on the opponent's court 98-87. Angers BC outscored Vitre in a home game 90-69. Orchies managed to beat Lourdes on the road 77-70. Rennes was defeated by Lorient on its own court 80-94.

SAP Vaucluse - Gries/Oberhoffen 87-98

Everything could happen in Sorgues at the game between two tied teams. Both twelfth ranked Gries/Oberhoffen and 13th ranked SAP Vaucluse had identical 13-16 record. But SAP Vaucluse was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Bischwiller 98-87 on Saturday night. Gries/Oberhoffen dominated down low during the game scoring 66 of its points in the paint compared to SAP Vaucluse's 38 and made 17-of-20 free shots (85.0 percent) during the game. They outrebounded SAP Vaucluse 34-23 including a 30-18 advantage in defensive rebounds. Lithuanian point guard Ovidijus Varanauskas (187-91) scored 24 points and 7 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Lithuanian forward Rolandas Jakstas (202-92) chipped in 24 points and 6 rebounds during the contest. The best for the losing side was American point guard Deremy Geiger (180-90, college: Idaho, agency: Blacktop Management) with 19 points and Lithuanian forward Darius Tarvydas (200-91) scored 15 points. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. SAP Vaucluse's coach Sylvain Lautie rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Gries/Oberhoffen maintains twelfth position with 14-16 record. Loser SAP Vaucluse keeps the thirteenth place with 17 games lost. Gries/Oberhoffen will face higher ranked Saint Vallier (#11) at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. SAP Vaucluse will play against GET Vosges in Golbey and hope to win that game.
