David Denave
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in ProB.

ProB top team - Pau-Lacq-Orthez (24-8) managed to deliver another win on Friday. This time they beat seventeenth ranked Bordeaux (7-25) 94-80. The guests trailed by 10 points at the halftime before their 53-29 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Pau-Lacq-Orthez made 21-of-24 free shots (87.5 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a quality performance of David Denave (195-85) who helped to win the game recording 28 points and 7 assists and American forward Charles Jackson (203-87, college: Hawaii-Pacific, agency: Court Side) who added 25 points and 7 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) during the contest. Pau-Lacq-Orthez's coach Claude Bergeaud used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American power forward Nigel Wyatte (204-81, college: Wagner, agency: Court Side) responded with 13 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Pau-Lacq-Orthez maintains first position with 24-8 record. Bordeaux lost sixth consecutive game. They keep the seventeenth place with 25 games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez are looking forward to face Fos Ouest (#6) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Bordeaux will play against Aix-Maurienne (#10) in Aix-les-Bains and is hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
An interesting game took place in Saint-Quentin where higher ranked Le Portel (20-12) was upset on the court of thirteenth ranked Saint-Quentin (14-18) 104-96. The winners were led by point guard Olivier Romain (182-88) who scored that evening 18 points and Lavar Simmons supported him with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Even 26 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists by American forward Darnell Wilson (198-85, college: Canisius, agency: Court Side) did not help to save the game for Le Portel. Le Portel's coach Eric Girard rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Newly promoted Saint-Quentin maintains thirteenth position with 14-18 record. Le Portel at the other side keeps the fourth place with 12 games lost. They share the position with Fos Ouest and Boulogne. Saint-Quentin will play against Denain Voltaire (#14) on the road in the next round. Le Portel will play against the league's second-placed ALM Evreux (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Third ranked Chalons-Reims (21-11) crushed at home 16th ranked Nantes (10-22) by 28 points 96-68, which is the biggest margin this round on Friday night. The best player for the winners was Tyren Johnson who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds. Terrance Henry produced 19 points and 8 rebounds for the guests. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Chalons-Reims maintains third position with 21-11 record having just three points less than leader Pau-Lacq-Orthez. Nantes lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the fifteenth place with 22 games lost. They share the position with St Vallier. Chalons-Reims will meet Saint Vallier (#15) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Nantes will play against Olympique Antibes and hope to secure a win.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 32: Lille was destroyed by Boulogne on the opponent's court 99-74. Rouen managed to outperform Charleville in a home game 90-77. Maurienne recorded a loss to Hyeres-Toulon on the road 75-71. Evreux crushed St Vallier on its own court 87-62. Bourg was smashed by Fos Ouest in a road game 84-62. Antibes won against Denain at home 83-68.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 26 points, 8 assists and 4 steals by Ronnie Taylor of Le Portel.


Boulogne - Lille 99-74

Very expected game when 10th ranked Lille Metropole (16-16) was crushed on the road by sixth ranked SO Maritime Boulogne (20-12) 99-74 on Saturday. The game without a history. SO Maritime Boulogne led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. The best player for the winners was power forward Mickael Var (205-90) who scored 27 points and 7 rebounds (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line). Forward Abdoulaye Loum (210-91) chipped in a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds. Four SO Maritime Boulogne players scored in double figures. American power forward Steffon Bradford (198-78, college: Nebraska, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) produced a double-double by scoring 19 points and 12 rebounds and his fellow American import Steve Smith (200-81, college: Iona) added 23 points respectively for the guests. Lille Metropole's coach gave up on the game allowing to play ten players seeing no chance for a win. SO Maritime Boulogne moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Fos Ouest and Le Portel. Loser Lille Metropole keeps the tenth position with 16 games lost. They share it with Maurienne. SO Maritime Boulogne will meet bottom-ranked Charleville-Mezieres (#18) on the road in the next round which should be another easy win for them. Lille Metropole will play against SPO Rouen (#7) and hope to secure a win.

Rouen - Charleville 90-77

Very predictable result when seventh ranked SPO Rouen (19-13) defeated at home bottom-ranked Charleville-Mezieres (5-27) 90-77 on Friday. The game was mostly controlled by SPO Rouen.

Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Charleville-Mezieres' coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. SPO Rouen maintains seventh position with 19-13 record, which they share with Antibes. Charleville-Mezieres lost eighteenth consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay dead last with 27 lost games. SPO Rouen will meet Lille Metropole (#11) on the road in the next round. Charleville-Mezieres will play against SO Maritime Boulogne (#4) and hope to secure a win.
