Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket as it allowed them to take a leadership position. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket defeated 7th ranked Chalons-Reims at home 83-76. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Chalons-Reims. Nigerian center Tonye Jekiri (213-94, college: Miami, FL, agency: Network Sports International) had a double-double by scoring 11 points and 13 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and the former international Livio Jean-Charles (206-93, agency: BeoBasket) chipped in 18 points during the contest. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket’s coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side center Johan Passave-Ducteil (200-85) responded with 22 points and 6 rebounds. Undefeated ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (10-0) have an impressive ten-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. Chalons-Reims at the other side dropped to the eighth place with five games lost. They share the position with Gravelines. Chalons-Reims will play next round against strong Monaco trying to get back on the winning streak. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.
Very significant was JDA Dijon’s (#4) 85-72 road victory against one of their biggest challengers Cholet Basket. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of Cholet Basket. American center Richard Solomon (208-92, college: California) notched 20 points and 8 rebounds to lead the effort and Rasheed Sulaimon supported him with 20 points and 5 rebounds. Even 25 points and 6 rebounds by American point guard Jalen Riley (182-93, college: ETSU) did not help to save the game for Cholet Basket. JDA Dijon (8-2) moved-up to third place. Cholet Basket at the other side dropped to the fifth position with three games lost. JDA Dijon will play against Le Mans (#13) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Cholet Basket will play against Chalon/Saor (#18) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Bottom-ranked Le Portel managed to get a third victory on Friday night. This time they won against tenth-ranked Boulazac Basket 97-88. Franklin Hassell fired a double-double by scoring 18 points and 13 rebounds for the winners. Patrik Auda produced 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for lost side. Le Portel (3-8) moved-up to fifteenth place. Loser Boulazac Basket keeps the tenth position with eight games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
An interesting game took place in Pau where higher ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (5-5) was upset on the court of sixteenth ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (3-7) 89-80. Worth to mention a great performance of Nicolas de-Jong who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 6 rebounds. Pau-Lacq-Orthez moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Le Mans and Orleans. Gravelines-Dunkerque at the other side keeps the eighth position with five games lost. Pau-Lacq-Orthez’s next round opponent will be Chorale de Roanne (#17) on the road where they are favorite.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 10: Chalon lost to Levallois on the opponent’s court 88-92. Monaco managed to outperform Nanterre in a home game 79-69. Strasbourg managed to beat Le Mans on the road 90-82. Limoges defeated Orleans on its own court 99-87. Strasbourg beat Boulazac in a road game 86-80.

Very expected game when 15th ranked Chalon/Saor (2-8) was defeated on the road by second ranked Levallois (10-1) 92-88.

In his just second game Joe Alexander put on a show with a record-breaking performance for Le Portel against higher-seeded, visiting side Boulazac.

Eric Girard’s team set themselves up for a must-win contest after a miserable 110-62 loss on the road vs Orleans. Bottom ranked Le Portel (2-8) hosted 9th seed Boulazac (5-6) as the 32-year-old, forward-center revealed to be clutch once again. Alexander finished with a team-high 19 points on 7-13 shooting from the field, including 4-6 for 66% from beyond the arc, and a perfect 3-3 from distance in overtime to clinch the game for the home team, 97-88.

Alexander was extremely active on both ends of the floor. He grabbed 7 rebounds, dished out 4 assists, and set a league record-breaking six blocks, surpassing 7-footer Hamady N’Diaye’s 5 blocks for Gravelines earlier in the season; and just 2 rejections short of his personal best, posted for Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2014 vs Bnei Hertzliya in the Israeli League. Alexander also recorded a game-high ranking with an evaluation score of 28 in 31 minutes.

Sources tell Eurobasket.com that Alexander has a reasonable out-clause in his French contract to join any team in the world. Alexander’s performance propelled Le Potel to the 15th seed (3-8), just two games behind the 8th seed and a ticket to the LNB League Playoffs.

American Point guard Rob Gray (185-PG-94) had a very impressive game in the last round for second-ranked Levallois, receiving a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 10.
The 25-year old player was the main contributor (31 points, three rebounds and eight assists) to his team’s victory, helping them to edge out Chalon (#18, 2-8) 92-88. Levallois maintains the 2nd position in French Jeep ELITE ProA. Levallois has a very good season and are considered to have a run for the championship title. They improved their record to 10-1. Gray turned to be Levallois’ top player in his first season with the team. Former University of Houston star has very solid stats this year. Gray is in league’s top in points (2nd best: 17.2ppg) and averages impressive 63.6% FGP and 47.6% from behind 3-point line.

The second best player in last round’s games was 28-year old Bosnia and Herzegovina Miralem Halilovic (205-F-91, agency: PEPI SPORT) of Orleans. Halilovic had a very good evening with a double-double of 27 points and 12 rebounds. Bad luck as Orleans lost that game 87-99 to slightly higher-ranked Limoges (#11, 4-6). The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. Orleans keeps 12th position. His team is not often considered as one of the league’s best with a mere 3-7 record. Halilovic is one of the most experienced players at Orleans and has a reputation of one of team’s most reliable players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.7ppg (#5). He also registered 7.5 boards per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was American center Cliff Alexander (203-C-95) of Le Mans (#13). Alexander scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Despite Alexander’s great performance Le Mans lost 82-90 to the higher-ranked Strasbourg (#7, 6-5). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The chances of Le Mans not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 7 games, recording just three victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Alexander could try to bring Le Mans’ a little bit higher in the standings. Alexander has a very solid season. In 9 games in France he scored 9.0ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Brandon Jefferson (175-PG-91) of Orleans – 24 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists
5. Nianta Diarra (201-F/C-93) of Cholet – 19 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Jalen Riley (182-PG-93) of Cholet – 25 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Richard Solomon (208-C-92) of Dijon – 20 points and 8 rebounds
8. Joe Alexander (203-C/F-86) of Le Portel – 19 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists
9. Vitalis Chikoko (208-F/C-91) of Levallois – 19 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists
10. Brian Conklin (201-F-89) of Limoges – 17 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists

The Player of the week is selected based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it’s accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) – 2*BSAG – 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM – 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) – 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) – (FTA-FTM)
