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 Pau between third ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (18-8) and ninth ranked Le Portel (13-13) on Friday night. Pau-Lacq-Orthez was defeated by Le Portel in a tough game at home 67-75. The guests started the game with a very strong first quarter 23-10. But Pau-Lacq-Orthez won third quarter 19-12. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Le Portel looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. American point guard Darrin Dorsey (188-87, college: Dakota Wesleyan, agency: Three Eye Sports) orchestrated the victory by scoring 13 points and 9 assists. The other American import power forward Franklin Hassell (203-88, college: ODU) contributed with 10 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Zimbabwean power forward Vitalis Chikoko (207-91) replied with 18 points and 9 rebounds for Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's coach Eric Bartecheky rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Le Portel moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ASVEL. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side keeps the third position with eight games lost. They share it with Nanterre. Le Portel is looking forward to face ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#8) at home in the next round. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Olympique Antibes (#16) and is hoping to win this game.
ProA top team - Monaco (23-3) added another victory to their record. This time they beat eighth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (13-13) 92-88. American-Azerbaijani forward Niklas Caner-Medley (203-83, college: Maryland, agency: BeoBasket) scored 28 points (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) to lead the charge for the winners and Zack Wright chipped in 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. American point guard Casper Ware (178-90, college: Long Beach St.) responded with 22 points and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Monaco have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 23-3 record. Defending champion ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket keeps the eighth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with Le Portel. Monaco will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#17) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Le Portel (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Strasbourg was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Paris-Levallois (16-10) played at the court of sixth ranked Strasbourg IG (17-9). Strasbourg IG defeated Paris-Levallois 82-67 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Paris-Levallois. Jeremy Leloup notched 22 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) to lead the effort. Strasbourg IG's coach Vincent Collet used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even a double-double of 10 points and 15 rebounds by Louis Labeyrie did not help to save the game for Paris-Levallois. Strasbourg IG have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Loser Paris-Levallois dropped to the sixth position with ten games lost. Strasbourg IG will meet JDA Dijon (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Paris-Levallois will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Eleventh-ranked Le Mans (11-15) was very close to win a game against seventh ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (15-11). Gravelines-Dunkerque managed to secure only three-point victory 75-72. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Justin Cobbs who scored 22 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Gravelines-Dunkerque maintains seventh position with 15-11 record. Le Mans at the other side keeps the eleventh place with 15 games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque's next round opponent will be higher ranked Paris-Levallois (#6) on the road and it may be quite challenging game. Le Mans will play against Hyeres-Toulon (#14) and hope to win that game.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Hyeres-Toulon (9-17) and Olympique Antibes (8-18), which took place in Toulon. 14th ranked Hyeres-Toulon lost at home to seventeenth ranked Olympique Antibes 61-75 on Friday. Max Kouguere orchestrated the victory by scoring 19 points and 8 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Olympique Antibes moved-up to sixteenth place, which they share with Orleans. Hyeres-Toulon lost eighth consecutive game. They dropped to the thirteenth position with 17 games lost. Olympique Antibes will face higher ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (#4) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 26: Dijon was beaten by Nanterre on the road 71-55. Limoges destroyed Nancy on its own court 95-74. Chalons-Reims unfortunately lost to Chalon in a road game 86-104. Orleans managed to beat Cholet at home 90-84.

Monaco - ASVEL 92-88

ProA top team - Monaco (23-3) added another victory to their record. This time they beat eighth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (13-13) 92-88. The hosts were already 11 points ahead after 3 quarters before a 27-20 ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's run in the last quarter cut the lead to 92-88 at the end of the game. Monaco made 31-of-38 charity shots (81.6 percent) during the game. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket was plagued by 32 personal fouls down the stretch. American-Azerbaijani forward Niklas Caner-Medley (203-83, college: Maryland, agency: BeoBasket) scored 28 points (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) to lead the charge for the winners and American-Bosnian guard Zack Wright (191-85, college: Central Mo.) chipped in 20 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. American point guard Casper Ware (178-90, college: Long Beach St.) responded with 22 points and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) and naturalized Guyanese Livio Jean-Charles (202-93, agency: BeoBasket) scored 15 points and 7 rebounds. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Monaco have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 23-3 record. Defending champion ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket keeps the eighth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with Le Portel. Monaco will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#17) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Le Portel (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Strasbourg - Paris-Levallois 82-67

The game in Strasbourg was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Paris-Levallois (16-10) played at the court of sixth ranked Strasbourg IG (17-9). Strasbourg IG defeated Paris-Levallois 82-67 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Paris-Levallois. The game was mostly controlled by Strasbourg IG. Paris-Levallois managed to win fourth quarter 18-16. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Strasbourg IG made 19-of-24 free shots (79.2 percent) during the game. The former international forward Jeremy Leloup (202-87) notched 22 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) to lead the effort and American-FYR Macedonian Romeo Travis (201-84, college: Akron) supported him with 12 points and 6 rebounds. Four Strasbourg IG players scored in double figures. Strasbourg IG's coach Vincent Collet used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Even a double-double of 10 points and 15 rebounds by the former international power forward Louis Labeyrie (209-92) did not help to save the game for Paris-Levallois. American guard Jason Rich (191-86) added 19 points for the guests. Strasbourg IG have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place. Loser Paris-Levallois dropped to the sixth position with ten games lost. Strasbourg IG will meet JDA Dijon (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Paris-Levallois will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Nanterre - Dijon 71-55

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked JSF Nanterre (18-8) beat at home 12th ranked JDA Dijon (10-16) 71-55 on Saturday. The game without a history. JSF Nanterre led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. American point guard Chris Warren (178-88, college: Mississippi) orchestrated the victory by scoring 17 points and 4 assists. German point guard Heiko Schaffartzik (183-84) contributed with 12 points for the winners. Four JSF Nanterre players scored in double figures. JSF Nanterre's coach Pascal Donadieu allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. American forward Isaiah Miles (201-94, college: St.Joseph's) replied with 21 points and 9 rebounds and naturalized Chadian forward Jacques Alingue (201-88) added 9 points in the effort for JDA Dijon. JSF Nanterre moved-up to third place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Loser JDA Dijon keeps the twelfth position with 16 games lost. JSF Nanterre will face Cholet Basket (#15) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. JDA Dijon will play against Strasbourg IG and hope to win that game.

Limoges - Nancy 95-74

Very expected game when 18th ranked Sluc Nancy (6-20) was smashed on the road by tenth ranked Limoges CSP Elite (12-14) 95-74 on Saturday. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Limoges CSP Elite dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Sluc Nancy's 26. They outrebounded Sluc Nancy 44-29 including 29 on the defensive glass. Limoges CSP Elite looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. American point guard DaShaun Wood (185-85, college: Wright St., agency: Inception Sports) orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists. The other American import guard William Buford (196-90, college: Ohio St., agency: Two Points) contributed with a double-double by scoring 12 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Limoges CSP Elite's coach Dusko Vujosevic felt very confident that he used 10 players and allowed the starting five to rest. American-Montenegrin point guard Brion Rush (186-84, college: Grambling St., agency: Three Eye Sports) replied with 18 points and 5 assists and Canadian-Italian power forward Marc Trasolini (206-90, college: Santa Clara) added 10 points and 10 rebounds in the effort for Sluc Nancy. Five Limoges CSP Elite and four Sluc Nancy players scored in double figures. Limoges CSP Elite maintains tenth position with 12-14 record. Sluc Nancy lost third consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 20 games lost. Limoges CSP Elite will face Chalons-Reims (#13) on the road in the next round. Sluc Nancy will play against the league's second-placed Chalon/Saor (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
