There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The game between third ranked Lille Metropole (16-11) and eleventh ranked Nantes (13-14) was the most important one in the last round on Friday night. Lille Metropole was defeated by Nantes in a tough game in Nantes 66-75. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 20-12. But Lille Metropole won second period 17-12. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Nantes looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. It was a great evening for American-British power forward Laurence Ekperigin (200-88, college: Le Moyne) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 12 rebounds. Swingman Valentin Bigote (196-92) helped adding 24 points. The best for the losing side was Austrian Luka Asceric (202-97) with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Nantes moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Denain. Lille Metropole at the other side keeps the third position with 11 games lost. Nantes is looking forward to face Denain Voltaire (#11) on the road in the next round. Lille Metropole will play against ADA Blois (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Provence Basket (18-9) against fifteenth ranked Aix-Maurienne (11-16) on Friday night. Visiting Provence Basket was defeated by Aix-Maurienne in Aix-les-Bains 79-67. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Provence Basket. It was an exceptional evening for Gambian forward Moses Sonko (196-83, college: Co.Carolina, agency: HMS) who led the winners and scored 16 points and 6 rebounds. Andre Williamson accounted for 16 points. American center Brad Waldow (208-91, college: St.Mary's, CA) came up with 18 points and 5 rebounds for Provence Basket in the defeat. Provence Basket's coach Remi Giutta rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Aix-Maurienne maintains fifteenth place with 11-16 record. Provence Basket at the other side keeps the second position with nine games lost. Aix-Maurienne will play against higher ranked Boulazac Basket (#7) at home in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Provence Basket will play against ALM Evreux (#5) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked JA Vichy managed to get a tenth victory on Saturday night. This time they outleveled fourth-ranked Charleville-Mezieres 83-61. It's especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 22-point difference suggests that JA Vichy is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Charleville-Mezieres. The best player for the winners was Dustin Ware who scored 20 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. At the other side the best for losing team was Mohamed Kone who recorded 9 points and 11 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. JA Vichy (10-17) moved-up to sixteenth place, which they share with Boulogne and St Chamond. Loser Charleville-Mezieres keeps the fourth position with 12 games lost. They share it with Evreux. JA Vichy will meet league's leader JL Bourg on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Charleville-Mezieres will play against Saint-Quentin and hope to secure a win.
ProB top team - JL Bourg (19-8) managed to deliver another win. This time they beat seventeenth ranked Saint Chamond (10-17) 77-66. It was a good game for Youssou Ndoye who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). JL Bourg's coach Savo Vucevic allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. JL Bourg maintains first place with 19-8 record. Saint Chamond lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the sixteenth position with 17 games lost. JL Bourg's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked JA Vichy (#18) at home which should be an easy win for them. Saint Chamond will play against SPO Rouen and hope to win that game.
Important game to mention about took place in Saint-Quentin. Fourteenth ranked Saint-Quentin (12-15) saved a 1-point victory at home edging higher ranked Denain Voltaire (13-14) 70-69 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Denain Voltaire. It was a great evening for Ryan Rhoomes who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 12 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Saint-Quentin moved-up to thirteenth place. Loser Denain Voltaire keeps the tenth position with 14 games lost. Saint-Quentin will face higher ranked Charleville-Mezieres (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 27: Rouen won against Poitiers on the opponent's court 90-81. Roanne managed to outperform Le Havre in a home game 69-62. Boulogne recorded a loss to Evreux on the road 86-76.
