N'Diaye
The Regular Season in NM1 is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 3 rounds. Host teams show no mercy winning all games.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Souffel.. Second ranked Souffelweyersheim faced 4th placed Blois. Host Souffelweyersheim (19-9) smashed guests from Blois (17-10) 84-58. It ended at the same time the eight-game winning streak of Blois. The game without a history. Souffelweyersheim led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Blois' 20. Souffelweyersheim forced 19 Blois turnovers and had a 30-12 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Blois' players. Senegalese power forward Abdoulaye N'Diaye (210-84, college: USC) fired a double-double by scoring 16 points and 12 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Naturalized Chadian forward Jacques Alingue (201-88) chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds. Finnish forward Ville Kaunisto (205-82) produced a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds for lost side. Blois' coach Hugues Occansey gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. Souffelweyersheim maintains second place with 19-9 record having three points less than leader Orchy, which they share with Vichy. Blois at the other side keeps the fourth position with ten games lost. Souffelweyersheim is looking forward to face Angers BC 49 (#12) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Blois will play against Quimper UJAP (#7) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Leader Orchesien BC delivered the twentieth third victory. This time they beat 14th ranked Vendee Challans (9-18) 77-73 in Orchies. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Emilien Barbry (188-83) who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 4 assists. Renaud Brocheray contributed with 13 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. point guard Sebastien Cherasse (184-84) answered with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds for Vendee Challans. Orchesien BC (23-4) have an impressive series of eleven victories in a row. They maintain first place. Vendee Challans at the other side keeps the fourteenth position with 18 games lost. Orchesien BC will play against Monaco (#6) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Vendee Challans will play against CFBB (#16) in Paris and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Quimper was also quite interesting. 5th ranked Monaco (16-11) played at the court of seventh ranked Quimper UJAP (16-12). Quimper UJAP managed to secure a 4-point victory 96-92 on Saturday. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Monaco. It was a great evening for Corey Raji who led his team to a victory scoring 32 points (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field). At the losing side Milutin Aleksic responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points, 10 rebounds and 9 assists. Quimper UJAP maintains seventh place with 16-12 record, which they share with La Rochelle. Newly promoted Monaco keeps the fifth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Cognac. Quimper UJAP will meet higher ranked Blois (#4) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Monaco will play against the league's leader Orchesien BC having rather not much hope for a victory.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Angers, where higher ranked Cognac (16-11) lost to twelfth ranked Angers BC 49 (11-16) in a road game 65-69. It was an exceptional evening for Logi Gunnarsson who led the winners and scored 22 points. Angers BC 49 moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with Chartres. Cognac lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the fifth position with 11 games lost. Angers BC 49's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Souffelweyersheim in Souffel. and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Cognac will play on the road against Sorgues.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Vichy. Local JA Vichy (19-9) outscored 11th ranked Chartres (11-16) 75-48 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Chartres. Guillaume Pons fired 16 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. JA Vichy moved-up to second place, which they share with Souffel. Loser Chartres keeps the eleventh position with 16 games lost. JA Vichy will face Union Rennes (#15) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Chartres will play against Rueil (#9) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Other games of round 31 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Angers BC 49 was defeated by St Chamond in Saint Chamond 94-76. Rueil beat Sorgues at home 91-78. Rennes lost to La Rochelle on the opponent's court 72-80.
The best stats of 31th round was 17 points, 23 rebounds and 6 blocks by Moise Diame of Rueil.
