Levallois was crushed by Le Mans on the road 83-104. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Levallois. Le Mans shot 65.5 percent from the field and made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. It was a great shooting night for Le Mans especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 55.0 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. It was a good game for American point guard Brandon Taylor (175-94, college: Utah, agency: Slash Sports) who led his team to a victory with 32 points and 5 assists (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line). Nigerian-British guard Obi Emegano (189-93, college: ORU) contributed with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field) for the winners. Zimbabwean power forward Vitalis Chikoko (208-91) replied with 22 points and 6 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) for Levallois. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Le Mans moved-up to eleventh place, which they share with 4 other teams. Levallois at the other side keeps the second position with two games lost. Le Mans is looking forward to face bottom-ranked Le Portel (#18) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game.

Experienced American-Bosnia and Herzegovina Zack Wright (183-PG-85) had an amazing evening in the last round for Bourg and that’s him to receive a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 11.
The 34-year old playmaker had a double-double of 20 points and twelve rebounds, while his team edged out Limoges (#13, 4-8) 83-80. Bourg is placed at 3rd position in French Jeep ELITE ProA. They would have been even better if they hadn’t lost a few games earlier this season. Bourg will need more victories to improve their 9-3 record. It’s Wright’s second year at Bourg and it’s hard to imagine this team without him. University of Central Missouri graduate has very impressive stats this year. Wright is in league’s top in assists (7th best: 6.3apg) and averages solid 55.6% FGP.

The second most remarkable performance in last round’s games was 27-year old Canadian point guard Kenny Chery (180-PG-92) of Nanterre. Chery impressed basketball fans with 24 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Of course he led Nanterre to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked Limoges (#13, 4-8) 93-71. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the title. But Nanterre managed to improve slightly their position in standings taking 11th place. His team is not often considered as one of the league’s best with a mere 4-7 record. Chery is a newcomer at Nanterre and it seems he did not have too much trouble to become one of team’s leaders.

The third best performed player last round was American Justin Dentmon (183-PG-85, agency: Slash Sports) of Pau-Lacq-Orthez (#14). Dentmon showcased his all-around game by recording 28 points, five rebounds and four assists in the last round. He was a key player of Pau-Lacq-Orthez, leading his team to a 100-97 win against slightly lower-ranked Roanne (#16, 3-9). The chances of Pau-Lacq-Orthez not to end season at such low position in the league, however are less than slim as they have already lost 8 games, recording just four victories. With bigger assistance of his teammates, Dentmon could try to bring Pau-Lacq-Orthez’s a little bit higher in the standings. Dentmon has a very solid season. In 5 games in France he scored 13.2ppg.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Wilfried Yeguete (200-PF-91) of Monaco – 19 points and 9 rebounds
5. Tyrus McGee (188-G-91) of Pau-Lacq-Orthez – 27 points and 3 assists
6. Chris Johnson (198-SF-90) of Bourg – 22 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists
7. Thomas Scrubb (198-SF-91) of Strasbourg – 19 points, 3 rebounds and 6 assists
8. Norris Cole (188-PG-88) of Monaco – 22 points and 8 assists
9. Devin Oliver (204-PF-92) of Nanterre – 18 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Marcquise Reed (190-G-95) of Roanne – 22 points, 4 rebounds and 4 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)
