There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in NM1. 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 most important game in the last round took place in Sorgues between second ranked Quimper UJAP (22-10) and fourteenth ranked SAP Vaucluse (14-18) on Saturday night. Quimper UJAP was defeated by SAP Vaucluse in a tough game on the road 78-83. Quimper UJAP was trailing by 2 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 26-20 charge of SAP Vaucluse, which allowed them to win the game. They made 24-of-28 free shots (85.7 percent) during the game. SAP Vaucluse forced 19 Quimper UJAP turnovers. 25 personal fouls committed by Quimper UJAP helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American point guard Deremy Geiger (180-90, college: Idaho, agency: Blacktop Management) orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points. Mali power forward Cheick Soumaoro (204-90) contributed with 12 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. SAP Vaucluse's coach Sylvain Lautie used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American forward Dwight Burke (202-86, college: Marquette) replied with 22 points and 5 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for Quimper UJAP. SAP Vaucluse moved-up to thirteenth place, which they share with Lorient. Quimper UJAP at the other side keeps the second position with ten games lost. SAP Vaucluse is looking forward to face higher ranked Vendee Challans (#7) on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Quimper UJAP will play against Saint Vallier (#11) and is hoping to win this game.
NM1 top team - Caen (25-7) added another victory to their record. This time they beat fifth ranked Rueil (18-14) 86-78. Worth to mention a quality performance of American-Cape Verdean swingman BJ Monteiro (196-90, college: Duquesne) who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 7 rebounds and Thomas Cornely who added 14 points, 5 rebounds and 9 assists during the contest. American power forward Ron Anderson (205-89, college: S.Florida) responded with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists. Caen have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 25-7 record. Rueil lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the sixth place with 14 games lost. Caen will play against Vitre (#16) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Rueil will play against UB Chartres (#10) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 32th consecutive match to fifth ranked Orchesien BC (19-13) 88-68 on Saturday evening. The winners were led by Anthony Racine who scored that evening 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Even 17 points by Nicolas Dorez did not help to save the game for CFBB. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Orchesien BC have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with GET Vosges. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Orchesien BC will meet Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. CFBB will play against Lorient (#14) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Fifteenth-ranked Vitre (13-19) was very close to win a game against third ranked Souffelweyersheim (21-11). Souffelweyersheim managed to secure only two-point victory 80-78. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Valentin Correia who scored 19 points and 7 rebounds. Vitre's coach Zoran Durdevic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Souffelweyersheim maintains third position with 21-11 record having four points less than leader Caen. Vitre at the other side keeps the fifteenth place with 19 games lost. Souffelweyersheim's next round opponent will be Angers BC (#15) on the road which should be an easy win for them. Vitre will play against the league's leader Caen and hope to win that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Saint Vallier. Fourth ranked GET Vosges (19-13) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 11th ranked Saint Vallier (16-16) 73-71 on Saturday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Saint Vallier. Masse Doumbe orchestrated the victory by scoring 13 points and 9 rebounds. GET Vosges' coach Laurent Mathis allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. GET Vosges maintains fourth position with 19-13 record, which they share with Orchies. Loser Saint Vallier dropped to the tenth place with 16 games lost. GET Vosges will face Union Rennes (#17) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Saint Vallier will play against the league's second-placed Quimper UJAP (#2) and hope to win that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 32: Challans beat Chartres on the road 84-80. ALS Basket won against Angers BC on its own court 73-57. Gries/Oberhoffen managed to outperform Rennes in Bischwiller 94-76. Lourdes was rolled over Lorient at home 81-101.

Orchies - CFBB 88-68

Bottom-ranked CFBB is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their 32th consecutive match to fifth ranked Orchesien BC (19-13) 88-68 on Saturday evening. The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 12-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 88-68. Orchesien BC dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to CFBB's 20. They outrebounded CFBB 35-20 including a 15-4 advantage in offensive rebounds. Orchesien BC looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. The winners were led by Anthony Racine (190-94) who scored that evening 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists and naturalized Mali swingman Sourata Cisse (196-86) supported him with 18 points. Even 17 points by power forward Nicolas Dorez (199-99) did not help to save the game for CFBB. Forward Ivan Fevrier (203-99) added 15 points for the guests. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Orchesien BC have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with GET Vosges. Loser CFBB still closes the standings. Orchesien BC will meet Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. CFBB will play against Lorient (#14) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

Souffel - Vitre 80-78

Fifteenth-ranked Vitre (13-19) was very close to win a game against third ranked Souffelweyersheim (21-11). Souffelweyersheim managed to secure only two-point victory 80-78. However their fans expected much easier game. Souffelweyersheim outrebounded Vitre 45-31 including a 18-7 advantage in offensive rebounds. The best player for the winners was Valentin Correia (192-93) who scored 19 points and 7 rebounds. Senegalese forward Elson Mendy (200-85) chipped in 9 points and 15 rebounds. Montenegrin guard Nikola Korac (185-86) produced 16 points and 4 assists and guard Antoine Belkessa (186-88) added 8 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists respectively for the guests. Vitre's coach Zoran Durdevic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Souffelweyersheim maintains third position with 21-11 record having four points less than leader Caen. Vitre at the other side keeps the fifteenth place with 19 games lost. Souffelweyersheim's next round opponent will be Angers BC (#15) on the road which should be an easy win for them.

Rennes - Gries/Oberhoffen 76-94

Very predictable result when twelfth ranked Gries/Oberhoffen (15-17) won against on the road 17th ranked Union Rennes (12-20) 94-76 on Saturday. The game without a history. Gries/Oberhoffen led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter.
