Looking to move up the table of France’s Betclic Elite LNB Pro A, LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne edged SIG Strasbourg, 78-72, to improve to 12-9 Sunday night.

Retin Obasohan poured 16 points, including the go-ahead bucket with 1:50 remaining in the Regular Season Round 22 battle. The Belgian guard additionally tallied five rebounds, four steals, and two rebounds in 24 minutes.

Nando De Colo shared the game-high with 16 points of his own. Joffrey Lauvergne (right knee) remained the lone player sidelined for the team coached by Morgan Belnou, replacing injured T.J. Parker for a second game in a row.
