William
Gradit
Round 22 most important game was a victory of Chorale de Roanne over 8th ranked JSF Nanterre 77-70 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of JSF Nanterre. JSF Nanterre was trailing by 9 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 24-16 charge of Chorale de Roanne, which allowed them to win the game. It was a great shooting night for Chorale de Roanne especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 76.9 percentage. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international William Gradit (197-82, college: Hill JC) who helped to win the game recording 22 points. American power forward Coleman Collins (206-86, college: Virginia Tech, agency: Interperformances) contributed with 12 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. American forward Chris Oliver (198-85, college: Radford) replied with 13 points and 7 rebounds (made all of his nine free throws !!!) for JSF Nanterre. Chorale de Roanne have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois. JSF Nanterre at the other side keeps the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Dijon and Orleans. Chorale de Roanne is looking forward to face league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. JSF Nanterre will play against JDA Dijon (#10) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Chalon/Saor (13-8) against tenth ranked Entente Orleans 45 (11-11) on Saturday night. Visiting Chalon/Saor was edged by Entente Orleans 45 in a tough game in Orleans 69-71. American guard Christopher Hill (191-83, college: Michigan St., agency: Higher Vision Sports) scored 25 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Torrell Martin chipped in 13 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side American forward Shelden Williams (206-83, college: Duke) responded with 19 points and 8 rebounds. Entente Orleans 45 moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Dijon and Nanterre. Defending champion Chalon/Saor keeps the third position with eight games lost. Entente Orleans 45 will play against Sluc Nancy (#14) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Chalon/Saor will play against Limoges CSP Elite (#11) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
ProA top team - Gravelines-Dunkerque (16-6) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat fourteenth ranked Poitiers (7-15) 73-60. Dwight Buycks notched 20 points to lead the effort. Even 9 points and 9 rebounds by Anthony Dobbins did not help to save the game for Poitiers. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Gravelines-Dunkerque maintains first position with 16-6 record, which they share with Strasbourg. Loser Poitiers keeps the fourteenth place with 15 games lost. They share the position with Nancy. Gravelines-Dunkerque will meet Chorale de Roanne (#6) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Poitiers will play against Limoges CSP Elite (#11) and hope to secure a win.

ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket managed to secure a 7-point victory 88-81. Edwin Jackson fired 21 points for the winners. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach Pierre Vincent allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket moved-up to fourth place, which they share with defeated Le Mans. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket (#16) on the road which should be an easy win for them. Le Mans will play against Chalon/Saor (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between tenth ranked JDA Dijon (11-11) and 16th ranked Boulazac Basket (6-16) in JDA Dijon on Friday ended with biggest points difference. JDA Dijon outscored guests from Boulazac 78-59. American players dominated the game. It was a very good performance for Andre Harris who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Other games in round 22 were not that significant. Le Havre was beaten by Strasbourg on the road 83-73. Limoges won against Nancy on its own court 82-75. Cholet unfortunately lost to Paris-Levallois in a road game 70-84.
The most impressive performance of 22th round was 26 points and 7 rebounds by Sean May of Paris-Levallois.
