Frank Turner
The Regular Season in ProB is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 6 rounds.

The most important game in the last round took place in Blois between third ranked Lille Metropole (16-12) and eighth ranked ADA Blois (15-12) on Saturday night. Lille Metropole was defeated by ADA Blois on the road 75-65. The hosts trailed by 5 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 75-65. American point guard Frank Turner (178-88, college: Canisius, agency: Inception Sports) fired 22 points for the winners. The other American import Lamayn Wilson (203-80, college: Troy) chipped in 12 points and 7 rebounds. American point guard Deonte Burton (183-91, college: Nevada) produced 22 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. ADA Blois moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Boulazac. Lille Metropole at the other side keeps the third position with 12 games lost. They share it with Charleville. ADA Blois is looking forward to face Boulazac Basket (#6) on the road in the next round. Lille Metropole will play against SO Maritime Boulogne and is hoping to win this game.
Leader JL Bourg delivered the twentieth victory. This time they crushed 17th ranked JA Vichy (10-18) 98-58. Worth to mention a great performance of Senegalese center Youssou Ndoye (213-91, college: St.Bonaventure) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds. Zachery Peacock contributed with 17 points for the winners. Romuald Morency (202-95) replied with 8 points and 8 rebounds for JA Vichy. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. JL Bourg maintains first position with 20-8 record. JA Vichy at the other side dropped to the bottom place with 18 games lost. They share the position with Boulogne and St Chamond. JL Bourg will play against Saint-Quentin (#14) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. JA Vichy will play against STB Le Havre (#10) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
A very close game took place in Aix-les-Bains between Boulazac Basket and Aix-Maurienne. Seventh ranked Boulazac Basket (15-12) got a very close victory on the road over 15th ranked Aix-Maurienne (11-17). Boulazac Basket managed to escape with a 1-point win 83-82 on Friday evening. Guest team only slightly avoided a big embarassment. Worth to mention a great performance of Jarvis Williams who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 9 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws). Boulazac Basket's coach Antoine Michon used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side Moses Sonko responded with 19 points. Boulazac Basket moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Blois. Loser Aix-Maurienne keeps the fifteenth position with 17 games lost. Boulazac Basket will meet at home ADA Blois (#5) in the next round. Aix-Maurienne will play against Chorale de Roanne (#13) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 28 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
St Quentin was crushed by Charleville in a road game 98-64. Boulogne was beaten by Roanne at home 73-86. St Chamond lost to Rouen on the opponent's court 77-85. Provence Basket outscored Evreux in a home game 108-73. Poitiers managed to beat Le Havre on the road 81-75. Denain defeated Nantes on its own court 65-55.
The best stats of 28th round was 16 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists by Guy-Landry Edi of St Chamond.

Bourg - Vichy Clermont 98-58

Leader JL Bourg delivered the twentieth victory. This time they crushed 17th ranked JA Vichy (10-18) 98-58. The game was mostly controlled by JL Bourg. JA Vichy was better in fourth quarter 18-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 18-of-23 charity shots (78.3 percent) during the game. JL Bourg had a 29-18 advantage in offensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three nailing 14 long-distance shots on high 56.0 percentage. JL Bourg players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of Senegalese center Youssou Ndoye (213-91, college: St.Bonaventure) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds. American center Zachery Peacock (203-87, college: Georgia Tech) contributed with 17 points for the winners. Five JL Bourg players scored in double figures. Romuald Morency (202-95) replied with 8 points and 8 rebounds and power forward Charles-Henri Bronchard (200-82, agency: Court Side) added 13 points in the effort for JA Vichy. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. JL Bourg maintains first position with 20-8 record. JA Vichy at the other side dropped to the bottom place with 18 games lost. They share the position with Boulogne and St Chamond. JL Bourg will play against Saint-Quentin (#14) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them.

Charleville - St Quentin 98-64

There was no surprise when 13th ranked Saint-Quentin (12-16) was crushed on the road by fourth ranked Charleville-Mezieres (16-12) 98-64 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Charleville-Mezieres. Saint-Quentin managed to win fourth quarter 21-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Charleville-Mezieres dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Saint-Quentin's 30. They outrebounded Saint-Quentin 44-29 including a 33-22 advantage in defensive rebounds. Charleville-Mezieres looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Saint-Quentin's players. Worth to mention a great performance of naturalized Ivorian center Mohamed Kone (211-81, college: Valparaiso) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 16 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists and American Wilbert Brown (200-84, college: Niagara) who added 21 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) during the contest. Four Charleville-Mezieres players scored in double figures. At the losing side American Darnell Williams (200-78, college: San Jose St.) responded with 9 points and 8 rebounds and his fellow American import center Ryan Rhoomes (203-92, college: Fordham) scored 13 points. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Charleville-Mezieres moved-up to third place, which they share with Lille. Loser Saint-Quentin dropped to the fourteenth position with 16 games lost. Charleville-Mezieres will meet Boulazac Basket (#6) on the road in the next round. Saint-Quentin will play against the league's leader JL Bourg (#1) and hope to secure a win.

Boulogne - Roanne 73-86

No shocking result in a game in Boulogne-sur-Mer where fourteenth ranked Chorale de Roanne (12-15) defeated 16th ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (10-18) 86-73 on Saturday. The game was mostly controlled by Chorale de Roanne. SO Maritime Boulogne managed to win third quarter 19-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Chorale de Roanne shot the lights out from three sinking 12 long-distance shots on high 54.5 percentage. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Joe Burton (201-90, college: Oregon St.) who helped to win the game recording 15 points and 9 rebounds and Finnish Antti Kanervo (192-89, agency: Blacktop Management) who added 16 points during the contest. Five Chorale de Roanne players scored in double figures. At the losing side American guard Teddy Gipson (191-80, college: Arkansas) responded with 19 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Dutch Worthy de-Jong (194-88) scored 21 points. Chorale de Roanne moved-up to thirteenth place. Loser SO Maritime Boulogne keeps the sixteenth position with 18 games lost. They share it with Vichy Clermont and St Chamond. Chorale de Roanne will meet higher ranked SPO Rouen (#11) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. SO Maritime Boulogne will play against Lille Metropole (#4) having rather not much hope for a victory.

Provence Basket - Evreux 108-73

Rather predictable result in Fos-sur-Mer where second ranked Provence Basket (19-9) outscored 5th ranked ALM Evreux (15-13) 108-73 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by Provence Basket. ALM Evreux managed to win fourth quarter 25-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.
