Dee Bost
The Regular Season in ProA is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 6 rounds.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Pau. First ranked Monaco faced 3rd ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Guests from Monaco (25-3) defeated host Pau-Lacq-Orthez (19-9) 85-73. The guests trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 48-32 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Monaco forced 27 Pau-Lacq-Orthez turnovers. American-Bulgarian point guard Dee Bost (188-89, college: Mississippi St., agency: BeoBasket) fired 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American center Brandon Davies (208-91, college: BYU) chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds. Monaco's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American point guard DJ Cooper (183-90, college: Ohio) produced a double-double by scoring 24 points, 5 rebounds, 17 assists and 4 steals for lost side. Monaco have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 25-3 record. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side keeps the third place with nine games lost. They share the position with Strasbourg and Nanterre. Monaco are looking forward to face Limoges CSP Elite (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#7) and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy managed to get a seventh victory, breaking the four-game losing streak. This time they won against seventh-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque 83-72. Worth to mention a great performance of American center Elton Brown (206-83, college: Virginia) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 12 points, 17 rebounds and 7 assists. Brion Rush contributed with 15 points and 4 assists (made all of his seven free throws) for the winners. American forward Richard Solomon (208-92, college: California, agency: Pensack Sports) replied with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds for Gravelines-Dunkerque. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sluc Nancy maintains eighteenth position with 7-21 record. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side keeps the seventh place with 13 games lost. Sluc Nancy will play against higher ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (#9) at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against Pau-Lacq-Orthez and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Twelfth-ranked JDA Dijon (10-18) made lots of trouble for ninth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (14-14) on Saturday. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket managed to secure only one-point victory 74-73. However their fans expected easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Walter Hodge who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 4 assists. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach J.D. Jackson allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. At the losing side David Holston responded with 30 points, 9 assists and 4 steals. Defending champion moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Limoges and Le Portel. JDA Dijon lost third consecutive game. They keep the twelfth position with 18 games lost. They share it with Cholet and Hyeres-Toulon. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will meet bottom-ranked Sluc Nancy (#18) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. JDA Dijon will play against the league's second-placed Chalon/Saor (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Strasbourg. Local Strasbourg IG (19-9) beat 14th ranked Cholet Basket (10-18) 85-68. The winners were led by AJ Slaughter who scored that evening 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Strasbourg IG's coach Vincent Collet allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Strasbourg IG have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Nanterre. Cholet Basket at the other side dropped to the twelfth position with 18 games lost. Strasbourg IG's next round opponent will be Hyeres-Toulon (#13) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Cholet Basket will play against Chalons-Reims and hope to win that game.

Rest of the games of round 28 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Nanterre defeated Orleans in a road game 92-86. Limoges beat Le Mans at home 79-68. Le Portel lost to Chalon on the opponent's court 76-83. Paris-Levallois managed to outperform Hyeres-Toulon in a home game 88-84. Chalons-Reims recorded a loss to Antibes on the road 82-69.

Pau-Lacq-Orthez - Monaco 73-85

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Pau. First ranked Monaco faced 3rd ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Guests from Monaco (25-3) defeated host Pau-Lacq-Orthez (19-9) 85-73. The guests trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 48-32 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Monaco forced 27 Pau-Lacq-Orthez turnovers. American-Bulgarian point guard Dee Bost (188-89, college: Mississippi St., agency: BeoBasket) fired 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. American center Brandon Davies (208-91, college: BYU) chipped in 15 points and 5 rebounds. Five Monaco players scored in double figures. Monaco's coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American point guard DJ Cooper (183-90, college: Ohio) produced a double-double by scoring 24 points, 5 rebounds, 17 assists and 4 steals and the former international center Alain Koffi (207-83, agency: BeoBasket) added 22 points and 8 rebounds respectively for lost side. Monaco have an impressive six-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 25-3 record. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side keeps the third place with nine games lost. They share the position with Strasbourg and Nanterre. Monaco are looking forward to face Limoges CSP Elite (#10) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#7) and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.

Strasbourg - Cholet 85-68

The game with biggest result difference took place in Strasbourg. Local Strasbourg IG (19-9) beat 14th ranked Cholet Basket (10-18) 85-68. The game was mostly controlled by Strasbourg IG. Cholet Basket was better in third quarter 21-13. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Strasbourg IG won last quarter 31-15. They dominated down low during the game scoring 52 of its points in the paint compared to Cholet Basket's 18. They outrebounded Cholet Basket 37-26 including 26 on the defensive glass. Strasbourg IG players were unselfish on offense dishing 25 assists. The winners were led by American-Polish point guard AJ Slaughter (191-87, college: W.Kentucky, agency: BeoBasket) who scored that evening 12 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists and American-FYR Macedonian Romeo Travis (201-84, college: Akron) supported him with 17 points (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Strasbourg IG's coach Vincent Collet allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Even 9 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists by the former international point guard Jonathan Rousselle (187-90) did not help to save the game for Cholet Basket. American guard Marcus Williams (191-85, college: Connecticut) added 15 points for lost side. Strasbourg IG have an impressive nine-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Nanterre. Cholet Basket at the other side dropped to the twelfth position with 18 games lost. Strasbourg IG's next round opponent will be Hyeres-Toulon (#13) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Cholet Basket will play against Chalons-Reims and hope to win that game.

Orleans - Nanterre 86-92

There was no surprise when 17th ranked Entente Orleans 45 (8-20) was defeated at home by fifth ranked JSF Nanterre (19-9) 92-86. The guests were tied after three quarters but managed to speed up in last quarter eventually winning the game. The winners were led by American point guard Chris Warren (178-88, college: Mississippi) who scored that evening 26 points and 6 assists and Mathias Lessort (205-95) supported him with 21 points and 11 rebounds. 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. Even 19 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists by American swingman Micah Downs (195-86, college: Gonzaga) did not help to save the game for Entente Orleans 45. His fellow American import forward Marcellus Sommerville (200-82, college: Bradley) added 25 points for lost side. JSF Nanterre moved-up to third place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Strasbourg. Entente Orleans 45 at the other side keeps the seventeenth position with 20 games lost. JSF Nanterre's next round opponent will be Olympique Antibes (#15) at home which should be an easy win for them. Entente Orleans 45 will play against Paris-Levallois and hope to win that game.

The game between closely ranked teams ended with tenth ranked Limoges CSP Elite's (14-14) home victory over 11th ranked Le Mans (11-17) 79-68. It looked good early as Le Mans took a 1-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Limoges CSP Elite had a 16-14 second period charge getting the lead and Le Mans was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 68-79. The winners were led by the former international center Ousmane Camara (202-89) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 16 points and 12 rebounds (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!) and Slovenian guard Klemen Prepelic (191-92) supported him with 17 points and 5 assists. Even 15 points and 7 rebounds by American forward Ryan Pearson (198-90, college: George Mason, agency: Inception Sports) did not help to save the game for Le Mans. His fellow American import point guard Giordan Watson (178-85, college: Cent.Michigan, agency: BeoBasket) added 15 points for lost side. Le Mans' coach Alexandre Menard tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Limoges CSP Elite have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with ASVEL and Le Portel. Le Mans lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eleventh position with 17 games lost. Limoges CSP Elite's next round opponent will be league's leader Monaco on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Le Mans will play against Le Portel (#8) and hope to win that game.

Chalon - Le Portel 83-76

Very expected game when 8th ranked Le Portel (14-14) was defeated on the road by second ranked Chalon/Saor (21-7) 83-76. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 25-17. But Le Portel won second period 16-14. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening.

Paris-Levallois - Hyeres-Toulon 88-84

Very predictable result when sixth ranked Paris-Levallois (18-10) beat at home 13th ranked Hyeres-Toulon (10-18) 88-84. However just four-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The winners were led by American guard Jason Rich (191-86) who scored that evening 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists and the former international power forward Louis Labeyrie (209-92) supported him with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Even 9 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists by William Howard (201-93) did not help to save the game for Hyeres-Toulon. Nigerian-American Ike-Joseph Udanoh (203-89, college: Wayne St., MI, agency: Octagon Europe) added 13 points and 5 rebounds for lost side. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Hyeres-Toulon's coach Kyle Milling tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Paris-Levallois maintains sixth position with 18-10 record. Hyeres-Toulon at the other side dropped to the twelfth place with 18 games lost. Paris-Levallois' next round opponent will be Entente Orleans 45 (#17) on the road which should be an easy win for them. Hyeres-Toulon will play against Strasbourg IG (#4) and hope to win that game.

ASVEL - Dijon 74-73

Twelfth-ranked JDA Dijon (10-18) made lots of trouble for ninth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (14-14) on Saturday.

The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 74-73. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists.
