Tim Blue
The Regular Season in ProB is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 3 rounds.

Round 30 in ProB means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Antibes where host Olympique Antibes (18-12) beat league's leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez (22-8) 82-71 on Saturday evening. The game was mostly controlled by Olympique Antibes. Pau-Lacq-Orthez managed to win fourth quarter 19-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Olympique Antibes looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. The best player for the winners was American forward Tim Blue (205-84, college: Middle Tenn.St.) who scored 23 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. The other American import swingman Anthony Hilliard (193-86, college: Elizabeth City) chipped in 19 points and 7 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was David Denave (195-85) who recorded 24 points and 4 assists. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olympique Antibes have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Fos Ouest and Rouen. Pau-Lacq-Orthez at the other side still keeps top position with eight games lost. They were joined at the leadership position by Evreux who have the same record. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play next round against SPO Rouen trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Olympique Antibes will try to continue on its current victory against ninth ranked JL Bourg on the road.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked ALM Evreux as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Pau-Lacq-Orthez) loss. ALM Evreux smashed 9th ranked JL Bourg at home 92-61. It was a good game for center Garry Florimont (203-87) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 11 rebounds. Steeve Ho You Fat contributed with 10 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks for the winners. American swingman Jason Forte (196-84, college: S.Mississippi) replied with 28 points and 8 rebounds for JL Bourg. JL Bourg's coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez. JL Bourg at the other side keeps the ninth place with 14 games lost. JL Bourg will play next round against Olympique Antibes trying to get back on the winning streak. ALM Evreux will try to continue on its current victory against fourteenth ranked Denain Voltaire on the road.
The game in Boulogne was also quite interesting. One of their biggest challengers Le Portel (19-11) played at the court of fifth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (19-11). SO Maritime Boulogne defeated Le Portel 89-79 on Saturday. Mouhammadou Jaiteh had a double-double by scoring 23 points and 17 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was Darnell Wilson with 18 points and 7 rebounds. SO Maritime Boulogne moved-up to fourth place, which they share with defeated Le Portel. SO Maritime Boulogne will meet Aix-Maurienne (#10) in the next round where they are favorite. Le Portel will play against Chalons-Reims (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Rest of the games of round 30 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Bordeaux was defeated by Fos Ouest in a road game 80-75. St Vallier was smashed by Lille at home 76-95. Bottom-ranked Charleville was destroyed by St Quentin on the opponent's court 86-64. Rouen outscored Hyeres-Toulon in a home game 93-73. Denain managed to beat Nantes on the road 69-62. Chalons-Reims crushed Maurienne on its own court 98-78.
The best stats of 30th round was 34 points (!!!) and 8 steals by Jason Siggers of Lille.

Fos Ouest - Bordeaux 80-75

There was no surprise when 17th ranked Bordeaux (7-23) was defeated on the road by eighth ranked Fos Ouest (18-12) 80-75 on Sunday. However just five-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts trailed by 5 points at the halftime before their 22-10 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to win the game. Fos Ouest looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. American power forward John Williamson (199-86, college: Cincinnati) scored 17 points and 5 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners and Moroccan-Canadian Mohamed Hachad (194-83, college: Northwestern) chipped in 15 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Four Fos Ouest players scored in double figures. The best for the losing side was American power forward Nigel Wyatte (204-81, college: Wagner, agency: Court Side) with 20 points and 8 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) and guard Matthieu Guichard (188-88) scored 16 points. Fos Ouest have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Antibes and Rouen. Bordeaux lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the seventeenth position with 23 games lost. Fos Ouest will meet bottom-ranked Charleville-Mezieres (#18) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Bordeaux will play against Hyeres-Toulon and hope to secure a win.
