Despite his very good performance in Saturday night's game Hott was the top scorer with 18 points. He also added 4 boards, passed 5 assists and added 4 steals.

Rush was MVP of the game. He scored 24 points and added 7 passes in 33 minutes. Sluc Nancy Basket Pro (4-14) is located at the very bottom in the ProA.
