Martin
Hermannsson
The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked JL Bourg (18-8) on the court of fifth ranked Charleville-Mezieres on Tuesday night. Visitors were defeated by Charleville-Mezieres 79-69. The hosts trailed by 1 point at the halftime before their 47-36 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Charleville-Mezieres made 19-of-25 free shots (76.0 percent) during the game. Icelandic guard Martin Hermannsson (190-94, college: LIU Brooklyn) orchestrated the victory by scoring 20 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists (was perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line !!!). American Wilbert Brown (200-84, college: Niagara) contributed with 18 points and 5 assists for the winners. Senegalese center Youssou Ndoye (213-91, college: St.Bonaventure) replied with 16 points and 9 rebounds for JL Bourg. JL Bourg's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Charleville-Mezieres (15-11) moved-up to fourth place. JL Bourg at the other side still keeps top position with eight games lost. They share it with Provence Basket. Charleville-Mezieres are looking forward to face bottom-ranked JA Vichy (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. JL Bourg will play against Saint Chamond (#17) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Le Havre. Seventh ranked Boulazac Basket (14-12) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging one of their biggest challengers STB Le Havre (14-12) 65-64 in the fight for the fifth place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of STB Le Havre. American power forward Jarvis Williams (198-93, college: Murray St.) scored 25 points and 8 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Thomas Gipson chipped in 9 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Nigerian power forward Dinma Odiakosa (203-85, college: Illinois St., agency: Inception Sports) responded with 15 points and 8 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Boulazac Basket moved-up to fifth place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated STB Le Havre. Boulazac Basket will play against ADA Blois (#5) at home in the next round. STB Le Havre will play against Chorale de Roanne and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Denain between Denain Voltaire and Aix-Maurienne. Eleventh ranked Denain Voltaire (13-13) got a very close home victory over 16th ranked Aix-Maurienne (10-16). Denain Voltaire managed to escape with a 2-point win 68-66 on Tuesday evening. Host team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Terry Tarpey notched 14 points and 5 rebounds to lead the effort. Denain Voltaire's coach Jean-Christophe Prat used an eleven-player rotation in such tough game. Even 15 points and 7 rebounds by Romain Dardaine did not help to save the game for Aix-Maurienne. Denain Voltaire have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to tenth place. Loser Aix-Maurienne dropped to the fifteenth position with 16 games lost. They share it with Boulogne and St Chamond. Denain Voltaire will meet Saint-Quentin (#13) on the road in the next round. Aix-Maurienne will play against the league's second-placed Provence Basket and will have a slim chance for a victory.
The game between third ranked Lille Metropole (16-10) and 14th ranked Saint Chamond (10-16) in Lille ended with biggest points difference. Lille Metropole outscored guests from Saint Chamond 87-56. The best player for the winners was Luka Asceric who scored 19 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists. Lille Metropole's coach Neno Asceric felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Lille Metropole maintains third position with 16-10 record having just two points less than leader Bourg. Saint Chamond lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fifteenth place with 16 games lost. Lille Metropole's next round opponent will be Nantes (#11) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Saint Chamond will play against the league's leader JL Bourg (#1) and hope to win that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 26: Poitiers beat St Quentin on the road 75-61. Provence Basket won against Blois on its own court 83-72. Nantes unfortunately lost to Evreux in a road game 90-96. Boulogne managed to beat Vichy Clermont at home 80-71.
The most impressive performance of 26th round was 21 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists by Jay Threatt of Poitiers.

St Quentin - Poitiers 61-75

No shocking result in a game when ninth ranked Poitiers (14-12) beat on the road 12th ranked Saint-Quentin (11-15) 75-61. It looked good early as Saint-Quentin took a 9-point lead at the end of first quarter. But then Poitiers took control and eventually winning the game that evening by 14 points. The best player for the winners was American point guard Jay Threatt (180-89, college: Delaware St.) who scored 21 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Senegalese center Youssoupha Fall (221-95) chipped in 8 points and 8 rebounds. Poitiers' coach Rudy Nelhomme allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Swingman Pierre-Etienne Drouault (196-90) produced 11 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists and point guard Malela Mutuale (188-91) added 13 points respectively for the hosts. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Poitiers have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Saint-Quentin at the other side dropped to the thirteenth position with 15 games lost. Poitiers' next round opponent will be SPO Rouen (#12) at home and are hoping to win another game. Saint-Quentin will play against Denain Voltaire and hope to win that game.

Provence Basket - Blois 83-72

Very expected game when 6th ranked ADA Blois (14-12) lost to second ranked Provence Basket (18-8) in Fos-sur-Mer 72-83. The game was mostly controlled by Provence Basket. ADA Blois was better in third quarter 26-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Provence Basket players were unselfish on offense dishing 29 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by ADA Blois' players. The best player for the winners was American-Nigerian Derrick Obasohan (198-81, college: Texas Arlington, agency: BeoBasket) who scored 18 points and 4 assists. Swingman Raphael Desroses (199-80) chipped in 19 points. American point guard Frank Turner (178-88, college: Canisius, agency: Inception Sports) produced 16 points and 5 assists and his fellow American import Lamayn Wilson (203-80, college: Troy) added 10 points and 10 rebounds respectively for the guests. Four ADA Blois players scored in double figures. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Provence Basket used an opportunity after Bourg lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position. ADA Blois at the other side dropped to the fifth place with 12 games lost. Provence Basket's next round opponent will be Aix-Maurienne (#15) in Aix-les-Bains which should be an easy win for them. ADA Blois will play on the road against Boulazac Basket (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Evreux - Nantes 96-90

Rather predictable result when eighth ranked ALM Evreux (14-12) won against at home 10th ranked Nantes (12-14) 96-90.

But then ALM Evreux had a 28-17 second period charge getting the lead and Nantes was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 90-96. ALM Evreux forced 21 Nantes turnovers. The best player for the winners was American point guard Corin Henry (178-88, college: Tarleton St., agency: Octagon Europe) who scored 26 points and 7 assists. Swingman Bastien Pinault (195-93) chipped in 17 points. ALM Evreux's coach allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Swingman Valentin Bigote (196-92) produced 19 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) and Alexis Desespringalle (192-91) added 21 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists respectively for the guests. Four ALM Evreux and five Nantes players scored in double figures. ALM Evreux moved-up to fifth place, which they share with 4 other teams. Nantes lost third consecutive game.
