ProA top team - Monaco (24-3) added another victory to their record on Tuesday. This time they beat sixteenth ranked Entente Orleans 45 (8-19) 78-74. The hosts trailed by 1 point after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 2-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 78-74. Monaco outrebounded Entente Orleans 45 38-27 including 26 on the defensive glass. It was a great evening for American-Bulgarian point guard Dee Bost (188-89, college: Mississippi St., agency: BeoBasket) who led his team to a victory scoring 17 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. American-Azerbaijani forward Niklas Caner-Medley (203-83, college: Maryland, agency: BeoBasket) helped adding 14 points and 5 rebounds. The best for the losing side was British center Gabriel Olaseni (211-91, college: Iowa, agency: Pensack Sports) with 13 points and 7 rebounds. Monaco have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They maintain first place with 24-3 record. Entente Orleans 45 at the other side keeps the sixteenth position with 19 games lost. They share it with Antibes. Monaco are looking forward to face Pau-Lacq-Orthez (#3) on the road in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Entente Orleans 45 will play against JSF Nanterre (#5) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Sixteenth-ranked Olympique Antibes (8-19) gave a tough game to fourth ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (19-8). The visitors from Pau managed to secure only one-point victory 93-92. However their fans expected much easier game. It was an exceptional evening for American guard Taquan Dean (193-83, college: Louisville, agency: Two Points) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 18 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. DJ Cooper accounted for 20 points and 8 assists. American point guard Jerel Blassingame (175-81, college: UNLV) came up with a double-double by scoring 17 points, 5 rebounds and 13 assists for Olympique Antibes in the defeat. Olympique Antibes' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Pau-Lacq-Orthez moved-up to third place. Olympique Antibes at the other side keeps the sixteenth position with 19 games lost. They share it with Orleans. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against league's leader Monaco at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Olympique Antibes will play against Chalons-Reims (#15) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Reims between Limoges CSP Elite and Chalons-Reims. Tenth ranked Limoges CSP Elite (13-14) got a very close victory on the road over 13th ranked Chalons-Reims (9-18). Limoges CSP Elite managed to escape with a 2-point win 84-82 on Tuesday evening. The best player for the winners was Klemen Prepelic who scored 18 points and 4 assists.

Limoges CSP Elite will meet at home Le Mans (#11) in the next round. Chalons-Reims will play against Olympique Antibes (#16) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game took place in Le Mans where 11th ranked Le Mans (11-16) was upset on its own court by fourteenth ranked Hyeres-Toulon (10-17) 80-64. It was a good game for Trevis Simpson who led his team to a victory with 22 points (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hyeres-Toulon moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Cholet and Dijon. Le Mans lost their third game in a row. They keep the eleventh position with 16 games lost. Hyeres-Toulon's next round opponent will be higher ranked Paris-Levallois (#6) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
An interesting game took place in Cholet where 4th placed JSF Nanterre (18-9) was upset on the court of fifteenth ranked Cholet Basket (10-17) 85-54 on Tuesday. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of JSF Nanterre. It was a great evening for M.J. Rhett who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 10 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. Cholet Basket moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Dijon and Hyeres-Toulon. Loser JSF Nanterre keeps the fourth position with nine games lost. Cholet Basket will face higher ranked Strasbourg IG (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. JSF Nanterre will play against Entente Orleans 45 and hope to win that game.

There were no shocking results in the rest of the games of round 27: Gravelines was destroyed by Paris-Levallois on the opponent's court 98-79.

Paris-Levallois - Gravelines 98-79

The game between closely ranked teams ended with 7th ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque's (15-12) road loss to sixth ranked Paris-Levallois (17-10) 79-98 on Tuesday.

Nancy - Chalon 74-106

Very predictable result when second ranked Chalon/Saor (20-7) smashed on the road bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy (6-21) 106-74 on Tuesday. The game without a history. Chalon/Saor led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Sluc Nancy's 32. They outrebounded Sluc Nancy 41-24 including a 31-19 advantage in defensive rebounds.

His fellow American import point guard John Roberson (180-88, college: Texas Tech) helped adding 20 points, 7 rebounds and 10 assists.

Five Chalon/Saor and four Sluc Nancy players scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the third consecutive win for Chalon/Saor. They maintain second place with 20-7 record having four points less than leader Monaco. Sluc Nancy lost their fourth game in a row. They stay at the bottom position with 21 games lost.

Le Portel - ASVEL 82-58

Everything could happen at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked Le Portel and 8th ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket had identical 13-13 record. This time Le Portel used a home court advantage and rolled over the opponent from Villeurbanne 82-58 on Tuesday night.

His fellow American import center Jakim Donaldson (204-83, college: Edinboro) helped adding 15 points and 10 rebounds. Four Le Portel players scored in double figures.
