Dijon does not stop. Traveling on the Gravelines-Dunkirk floor, Chase Simon’s teammates (18 points) signed a fourth success in as many outings this season in the Jeep Elite. If the BCM players led in the score during the first minutes of the match, the Burgundians raised the tone with a 6-0 which allowed them to pass in front of the scoreboard and keep the advantage until the end of the first quarter. With a lead of up to six points at the start of the second quarter, the JDA then fell and BCM Cameron Wells (14 points) was able to equalize three minutes from half-time. But it is the Dijonnais who have found their locker room in front of the score. As soon as they returned to the floor, the JDA players accelerated to lead by eleven points ten minutes from the end of the meeting. A last quarter which was a formality for the players of Laurent Legname, who won by fourteen lengths (67-81).

Le Mans falls for the first time

After two victories in its first two outings in the league, Le Mans had to bow to its floor against Châlons-Reims. After a difficult start to the match and a delay of seven points very early in the first quarter, the MSB raised the tone thanks in particular to Valentin Bigote and Scott Bamforth (18 points each) to conclude these ten minutes with eight points of advanced. An advantage that the Sarthois maintained until halftime, although reduced to four lengths. But, when they returned to the Antares court, the Manceaux lived a nightmare. Silenced against the opposing basket for nearly eight minutes, Ovie Soko’s teammates (16 points, 11 rebounds) conceded a 19-0 which changed the face of the game. Therefore, the teammates of Arnas Velicka (25 points) and Travis Leslie (23 points) did not let go despite an 11-0 in the last moments of the meeting which did not call into question their first victory of the season (84-87).

Strasbourg falls back into its failings, Pau-Lacq-Orthez in control

After his success at Boulazac, which ended a series of two defeats in a row, Strasbourg did not confirm on the occasion of the reception of Portel, one of the teams in shape of the moment. However, with a 19-point advantage shortly after halftime, Yannis Morin’s teammates (22 points, 15 rebounds) broke down, Mikyle McIntosh (24 points) and company leading by two points before the last ten minutes. A last quarter during which Le Portel flew to win by eleven lengths (83-94). After his defeat in Dijon, Pau-Lacq-Orthez woke up against Boulazac, who has still not experienced victory this season. The Béarnais, led by Shannon Evans (26 points) had to wait until the end of the first quarter to take off on the scoreboard, leading fifteen lengths back to the locker room. An advantage that Mouphtaou Yarou’s teammates could not reduce in the second half of the match. Boulazac lost 29 points (89-60) and remained in last place in the standings.
