Paul Lacombe
The most important game in the last round took place in Strasbourg between third ranked Chalon/Saor (17-7) and sixth ranked Strasbourg IG (15-9) on Sunday night. Chalon/Saor was crushed by Strasbourg IG on the road 84-60. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. The hosts trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 52-24 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Strasbourg IG forced 24 Chalon/Saor turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Chalon/Saor's players. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Paul Lacombe (195-90, agency: BeoBasket) who helped to win the game recording 17 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists and American-Polish point guard AJ Slaughter (191-87, college: W.Kentucky, agency: BeoBasket) who added 15 points during the contest. The best for the losing side was American point guard John Roberson (180-88, college: Texas Tech) with 12 points and 8 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. Strasbourg IG have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois. Chalon/Saor at the other side keeps the third position with seven games lost. Strasbourg IG is looking forward to face Chalons-Reims (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chalon/Saor will play against Olympique Antibes (#16) and is hoping to win this game.
JSF Nanterre (#4) was upset in Nanterre by seventh ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque 88-67. The winners were led by American guard Justin Cobbs (191-91, college: California, agency: Pensack Sports) who scored that evening 19 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists and Richard Solomon supported him with 15 points and 13 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Even 17 points by German point guard Heiko Schaffartzik (183-84) did not help to save the game for JSF Nanterre. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Gravelines-Dunkerque have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain seventh position with 14-10 record. JSF Nanterre at the other side keeps the fourth place with eight games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against league's leader Monaco at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. JSF Nanterre will play against Sluc Nancy and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Entente Orleans 45 managed to get a seventh victory, breaking the seven-game losing streak on Saturday night. This time they won against seventeenth-ranked Sluc Nancy 78-68. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sluc Nancy. The best player for the winners was JP Prince who scored 15 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line). At the other side the best for losing team was Brion Rush who recorded 17 points and 6 rebounds. Entente Orleans 45 (7-17) moved-up to sixteenth place, which they share with Antibes. Loser Sluc Nancy dropped to the bottom position with 18 games lost. Entente Orleans 45 will meet higher ranked Le Portel (#9) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Sluc Nancy will play against JSF Nanterre (#4) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
ProA top team - Monaco (21-3) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat twelfth ranked Hyeres-Toulon (9-15) 80-71. It was a good game for Niklas Caner-Medley who led his team to a victory with 17 points and 7 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Monaco maintains first position with 21-3 record. Hyeres-Toulon lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the twelfth place with 15 games lost. Monaco's next round opponent will be Gravelines-Dunkerque (#7) on the road where they are favorite. Hyeres-Toulon will play against ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#8) and hope to win that game.
An interesting game took place in Le Mans where 8th ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (12-12) was upset on the court of eleventh ranked Le Mans (11-13) 82-74 on Saturday. Worth to mention a great performance of Wilfried Yeguete who helped to win the game recording 13 points and 9 rebounds. Le Mans' coach Alexandre Menard used a ten-player rotation and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Le Mans moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Limoges and Le Portel. Defending champion ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket keeps the eighth position with 12 games lost. Le Mans will face Cholet Basket (#15) on the road in the next round where they are favorite.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 24: Paris-Levallois won against Limoges on the opponent's court 84-76. Cholet unfortunately lost to Pau-Lacq-Orthez in a home game 69-76. Antibes recorded a loss to Dijon on the road 52-61. Chalons-Reims defeated Le Portel on its own court 77-68.

Limoges - Paris-Levallois 76-84

Rather expected game when 9th ranked Limoges CSP Elite (11-13) was defeated at home by sixth ranked Paris-Levallois (15-9) 84-76 on Monday. The guests trailed by 11 points after three quarters before their 27-8 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Paris-Levallois dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Limoges CSP Elite's 28. They outrebounded Limoges CSP Elite 36-22 including 25 on the defensive glass. Limoges CSP Elite was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international center Vincent Poirier (210-93) who helped to win the game recording 18 points and 8 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) and the former international power forward Louis Labeyrie (209-92) who added 16 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Four Paris-Levallois players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was Slovenian guard Klemen Prepelic (191-92) with 15 points and 8 assists and American point guard DaShaun Wood (185-85, college: Wright St., agency: Inception Sports) scored 16 points. Paris-Levallois have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Strasbourg. Loser Limoges CSP Elite keeps the ninth position with 13 games lost. Paris-Levallois will face league's second-placed Pau-Lacq-Orthez at home in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Limoges CSP Elite will play against JDA Dijon (#13) and hope to win that game.

Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Gravelines-Dunkerque have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain seventh position with 14-10 record. JSF Nanterre at the other side keeps the fourth place with eight games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against league's leader Monaco at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. JSF Nanterre will play against Sluc Nancy and hopes to get back on the winning track.

Dijon - Antibes 61-52

Not a big story in a game when 16th ranked Olympique Antibes (7-17) was defeated on the road by thirteenth ranked JDA Dijon (9-15) 61-52 on Friday.
