Strangely Vitre outrebounded Caen 38-21 including a 14-2 advantage in offensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 56.5 percentage. Caen looked well-organized offensively handing out 29 assists. 28 personal fouls committed by Vitre helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Lithuanian forward Justas Sinica (203-85) stepped up and scored 26 points and 5 assists for the winners and guard Thomas Cornely (190-91) chipped in 20 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. The best for the losing side was Desmond Quincy-Jones (201-85, college: Pace) with a double-double by scoring 26 points and 14 rebounds. Vitre's coach Zoran Durdevic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Caen have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain first place with 26-7 record. Vitre at the other side dropped to the fifteenth position with 20 games lost. They share it with Angers BC. Caen are looking forward to face Angers BC (#15) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Vitre will play against UB Chartres and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Bottom-ranked CFBB (0-33) is still winless. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 33th consecutive match to fourteenth ranked Lorient (15-18) 85-52.

Lorient moved-up to thirteenth place. CFBB at the other side still closes the standings. Lorient will play against higher ranked Gries/Oberhoffen (#12) in Bischwiller in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. CFBB will play on the road against Lourdes-Tarbes (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Fifteenth-ranked Angers BC (13-20) gave a tough game to third ranked Souffelweyersheim (22-11) on Saturday. The visitors from Souffelweyersheim managed to secure only three-point victory 84-81. However their fans expected much easier game. The best player for the winners was Fabyon Harris who scored 20 points and 4 assists.

They maintain third place with 22-11 record having four points less than leader Caen. Loser Angers BC keeps the fifteenth position with 20 games lost. They share it with Vitre. Souffelweyersheim will meet at home ALS Basket (#9) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Angers BC will play against the league's leader Caen (#1) and hope to secure a win.
An interesting game took place in Bischwiller where higher ranked Orchesien BC (19-14) was upset on the court of twelfth ranked Gries/Oberhoffen (16-17) 80-62. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Orchesien BC. It was a good game for Ahmed Doumbia who led his team to a victory with 22 points. Gries/Oberhoffen moved-up to tenth place, which they share with St Vallier and Chartres. Orchesien BC at the other side keeps the fifth position with 14 games lost. Gries/Oberhoffen's next round opponent will be Lorient (#13) on the road. Orchesien BC will play against GET Vosges (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Fourth ranked GET Vosges (20-13) crushed at home 17th ranked Union Rennes (12-21) by 51 points 111-60, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. Steven Ricard stepped up and scored 18 points and 7 rebounds for the winners.

ALS Basket - Lourdes 92-110

Everything could happen in Andrezieux at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked Lourdes-Tarbes and 8th ranked ALS Basket had identical 17-15 record. But ALS Basket was not able to use a home court advantage and lost to the opponent from Tarbes 110-92 on Saturday night. The guests trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 7-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 110-92.

Challans - SAP Vaucluse 74-70

Not a big story in a game when 13th ranked SAP Vaucluse (14-19) was defeated on the road by seventh ranked Vendee Challans (18-15) 74-70 on Saturday. However just four-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory.
