Gradit
The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 4 rounds. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (18-8) on the court of fifth ranked Chorale de Roanne on Tuesday night. Visitors were defeated by Chorale de Roanne 80-76. The hosts trailed by 7 points at the halftime before their 39-28 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Chorale de Roanne looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. The former international William Gradit (197-82, college: Hill JC) scored 19 points to lead the charge for the winners and naturalized Ivorian guard Pape-Philippe Amagou (185-85, agency: Beo Basket) chipped in 11 points and 7 assists during the contest. Chorale de Roanne's coach Luka Pavicevic used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American-FYR Macedonian swingman Kennedy Winston (198-84, college: Alabama) responded with 21 points. Chorale de Roanne (15-11) have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place, which they share with ASVEL and Le Mans. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side still keeps top position with eight games lost. Chorale de Roanne is looking forward to face Entente Orleans 45 (#9) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against Boulazac Basket (#15) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Villeurbanne. Sixth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (15-11) saved a 3-point victory at home edging second-ranked Strasbourg IG (17-9) 84-81 on Monday evening. The former international guard Edwin Jackson (191-89) notched 18 points and 5 assists to lead the effort and Tim Abromaitis supported him with 18 points and 6 rebounds. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach Pierre Vincent allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 19 points and 7 rebounds by the former international center Alexis Ajinca (215-88, agency: Priority Sports) did not help to save the game for Strasbourg IG. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Le Mans and Roanne. Strasbourg IG at the other side keeps the second position with nine games lost. They share it with Chalon. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Sluc Nancy (#14) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Strasbourg IG will play against Limoges CSP Elite (#13) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked Chalon/Saor (17-9) against seventh ranked JSF Nanterre (14-12) on Saturday night. Host Chalon/Saor was defeated by JSF Nanterre in Chalon 86-71. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Chalon/Saor. Americans were the main players on the court. The best player for the winners was Trenton Meacham who scored 22 points and 6 assists. Blake Schilb produced 17 points and 7 rebounds for the hosts. JSF Nanterre have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain seventh position with 14-12 record. Defending champion Chalon/Saor dropped to the second place with nine games lost. They share the position with Strasbourg. JSF Nanterre will meet at home STB Le Havre (#12) in the next round where they are favorite. Chalon/Saor will play against Paris-Levallois (#8) and hope to secure a win.
Bottom-ranked Boulazac Basket managed to get a eighth victory, breaking the two-game losing streak. This time newly promoted Boulazac Basket edged fifth-ranked Chorale de Roanne 67-65. It ended at the same time the seven-game winning streak of Chorale de Roanne. Americans were the main players on the court also this time. Alex Acker orchestrated the victory by scoring 21 points and 4 assists. Boulazac Basket (8-18) moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Poitiers. Chorale de Roanne at the other side dropped to the fourth position with 11 games lost. Boulazac Basket's next round opponent will be league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Chorale de Roanne will play against Entente Orleans 45.
ProA top team - Gravelines-Dunkerque (18-8) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat eleventh ranked STB Le Havre (11-15) 90-76. Dwight Buycks scored 25 points and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Gravelines-Dunkerque's coach Christian Monschau used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Gravelines-Dunkerque maintains first position with 18-8 record. Loser STB Le Havre dropped to the twelfth place with 15 games lost. Gravelines-Dunkerque will face Boulazac Basket (#15) at home in the next round which should be an easy win for them. STB Le Havre will play against JSF Nanterre.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 26: Limoges lost to Dijon on the opponent's court 72-80. Paris-Levallois unfortunately lost to Nancy in a home game 73-79. Poitiers recorded a loss to Orleans on the road 67-73. Cholet defeated Le Mans on its own court 89-82.


ASVEL - Strasbourg 84-81

Important game to mention about took place in Villeurbanne. Sixth ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (15-11) saved a 3-point victory at home edging second-ranked Strasbourg IG (17-9) 84-81 on Monday evening. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 24-18. But Strasbourg IG won second period 20-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. The former international guard Edwin Jackson (191-89) notched 18 points and 5 assists to lead the effort and American forward Tim Abromaitis (203-89, college: Notre Dame) supported him with 18 points and 6 rebounds. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach Pierre Vincent allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. Even 19 points and 7 rebounds by the former international center Alexis Ajinca (215-88, agency: Priority Sports) did not help to save the game for Strasbourg IG. American-Dominican swingman Ricardo Greer (197-78, college: Pittsburgh) added 14 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the guests. Four Strasbourg IG players scored in double figures. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Le Mans and Roanne. Strasbourg IG at the other side keeps the second position with nine games lost. They share it with Chalon. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will play against Sluc Nancy (#14) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

Dijon - Limoges 80-72

Rather expected game when 13th ranked Limoges CSP Elite (10-16) was defeated on the road by tenth ranked JDA Dijon (13-13) 80-72 on Saturday. The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 3-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 80-72. JDA Dijon forced 22 Limoges CSP Elite turnovers. It was a great shooting night for JDA Dijon especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 60.0 percentage. Limoges CSP Elite was plagued by 30 personal fouls down the stretch. American forward Zach Moss (201-81, college: Mountain St.) had a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and forward Jeremy Leloup (202-87) chipped in 22 points and 4 assists during the contest. American forward Jon Brockman (201-87, college: Washington) responded with 14 points and 9 rebounds and his fellow American import guard Teddy Gipson (193-80, college: Arkansas, agency: Court Side) scored 13 points and 5 assists. Four JDA Dijon and five Limoges CSP Elite players scored in double figures. Limoges CSP Elite's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. JDA Dijon moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Paris-Levallois and Orleans. Limoges CSP Elite lost third consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the thirteenth position with 16 games lost. JDA Dijon will face higher ranked Le Mans (#4) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.
