The best player for the winners was naturalized Senegalese forward Antoine Mendy (198-83) who scored 18 points.

At the other side the best for losing team was American power forward John Williamson (199-86, college: Cincinnati) who recorded 18 points.

Tyren Johnson contributed with 9 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Florent Tortosa (196-89) answered with 15 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists for Saint Vallier.
