There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in ProA. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (19-9) on the court of seventh ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket on Saturday night. Visitors were edged by ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket 67-65. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Gravelines-Dunkerque. The hosts trailed by 2 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 15-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 67-65. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket made 23-of-28 free shots (82.1 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international guard Edwin Jackson (191-89) who helped to win the game recording 13 points. American forward Tim Abromaitis (203-89, college: Notre Dame) contributed with 7 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket's coach Pierre Vincent used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American point guard Dwight Buycks (190-89, college: Marquette) replied with 21 points and 7 assists for Gravelines-Dunkerque. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (16-12) moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Le Mans and Roanne. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side still keeps top position with nine games lost. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket is looking forward to face Paris-Levallois (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against JDA Dijon (#10) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Cholet. Tenth ranked Cholet (14-14) saved a 1-point victory at home edging much higher ranked Chalon/Saor (18-10) 79-78 on Saturday evening. It was quite big embarassment for the guest team. American players dominated the game. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard A.J. Slaughter (191-87, college: W.Kentucky) who helped to win the game recording 24 points and 5 assists and Marcus Goree who added 13 points during the contest. At the losing side swingman Blake Schilb (200-83, college: Loyola, IL, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices) responded with 24 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists. Cholet have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Dijon and Orleans. Defending champion Chalon/Saor keeps the second position with ten games lost. Cholet will play against Entente Orleans 45 (#8) at home in the next round. Chalon/Saor will play against STB Le Havre (#12) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Strasbourg IG (17-11) against eleventh ranked JDA Dijon (14-14) on Saturday night. Visiting Strasbourg IG was defeated by JDA Dijon in JDA Dijon 84-69. The winners were led by Jeremy Leloup who scored that evening 20 points, 5 assists and 4 steals. Even 17 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks by Alexis Ajinca did not help to save the game for Strasbourg IG. JDA Dijon moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Cholet and Orleans. Strasbourg IG lost third consecutive game. They keep the third position with 11 games lost. JDA Dijon will meet league's leader Gravelines-Dunkerque on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Strasbourg IG will play against JSF Nanterre and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Poitiers. It ended with only two-point home defeat of 16th ranked Poitiers (8-20) to fourteenth ranked Sluc Nancy (11-17) 65-63 on Monday evening. Marcellus Sommerville fired 18 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Sluc Nancy have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain fourteenth position with 11-17 record. Poitiers lost third consecutive game. They stay at the bottom place with 20 games lost. Sluc Nancy's next round opponent will be higher ranked Chorale de Roanne (#5) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Poitiers will play against Le Mans (#4) having rather not much hope for a victory.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Paris-Levallois (13-15) and Limoges CSP Elite (12-16), which took place in Limoges. Higher ranked Paris-Levallois lost to thirteenth ranked Limoges CSP Elite in a road game 61-79 on Saturday. It was a very good performance for Jon Brockman who helped to win the game recording 14 points and 9 rebounds (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Limoges CSP Elite's coach Panagiotis Giannakis used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Limoges CSP Elite moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Le Havre. Paris-Levallois lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the eleventh position with 15 games lost. Limoges CSP Elite will face Boulazac Basket (#15) on the road in the next round.

Other games in round 28 were not that significant. Nanterre was beaten by Boulazac on the road 75-63. Le Havre won against Roanne on its own court 78-70. Le Mans unfortunately lost to Orleans in a road game 67-83.
