Once again the teams that were seemingly in control, lost some ground with new disappointing results

By Eurohoops team/ info@eurohoops.net

After the three way tie of the previous Week, now only one team remains at the first place of the standing in the French Championship. Four other teams now have to wait their turn for another chance at climbing on the top of Pro A.

For now, Le Mans (14-5) is above everyone else, after getting the better of a well prepared and tough to beat Antibes (9-10), in the last quarter of the game, thus enjoying the loneliness of being first in the classification table. Meanwhile, Monaco (13-6) and Gravelines (13-6) kept flying low, being defeated for the second time in a row, by Chalon (12-7) and Strasbourg (13-6) respectively.

The latter relished on the opportunity to rise in the second place, by taking a quite important road victory, which could also have come a lot easier, than what the final score implies. As for Chalon, the impressive number of 23 (!) rebounds made a huge difference against its opponents. Another game in which Monaco has serious problems in that department.

Paris Levallois (6-13) stunned the filled with high aspirations Limoges (9-10) thanks to a crucial 7-3 partial score in the last minutes of their match, while Nancy (7-12) took a previous win against Chalon Reims (7-12) catching up with them at the 14th place.
