The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 9 in the Jeep ELITE ProA took place in Bourg. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 5th ranked JL Bourg (6-3) to leader ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket (9-0) 85-82 on Sunday evening. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket made 19-of-22 free shots (86.4 percent) during the game. They shot the lights out from three sinking 14 long-distance shots on high 51.9 percentage. 27 personal fouls committed by JL Bourg helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for the former international Edwin Jackson (190-89, agency: BeoBasket) who led his team to a victory with 14 points. The former international Charles Kahudi (199-86) contributed with 15 points for the winners. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket’s coach Zvezdan Mitrovic used entire bench in such tough game. American-Bosnian point guard Zack Wright (183-85, college: Central Mo.) answered with 12 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for JL Bourg. Undefeated ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 9-0 record. JL Bourg at the other side dropped to the sixth position with three games lost. ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket are looking forward to face Chalons-Reims (#7) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. JL Bourg will have a break next round.
Important game to mention about took place in Gravelines. Eighth ranked Chalons-Reims (5-4) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging 7th ranked Gravelines-Dunkerque (5-4) 74-71 in the game for the seventh place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Gravelines-Dunkerque. Power forward Yannis Morin (208-93) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 13 rebounds for the winners and Dominique Archie chipped in 11 points and 11 rebounds. The best for the losing side was naturalized Congolese Jean-Michel Mipoka (198-85) with 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Gravelines-Dunkerque’s coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn’t help. Chalons-Reims moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Gravelines. Chalons-Reims will play against league’s leader ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Gravelines-Dunkerque will play against Pau-Lacq-Orthez (#16) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a home loss of third ranked JDA Dijon (7-2) against sixth ranked Monaco (6-2) on Saturday night. Host JDA Dijon was defeated by Monaco in Dijon 85-71. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of JDA Dijon. Anthony Clemmons nailed 22 points and 5 rebounds for the winning side.

They share it with Cholet. Monaco will meet at home JSF Nanterre (#14) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. JDA Dijon will play against Cholet Basket (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Chorale de Roanne managed to get a second victory, breaking the series of five consecutive losses. This time newly promoted Chorale de Roanne won against tenth-ranked Le Mans 100-84. It’s especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 16-point difference suggests that Chorale de Roanne is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. The best player for the winners was Marcquise Reed who scored 36 points (!!!) and 4 assists. Chorale de Roanne’s coach Laurent Pluvy allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Chorale de Roanne (2-7) moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Chalon. Le Mans at the other side dropped to the eleventh position with six games lost. Chorale de Roanne will have a break next round.
Sixteenth-ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (2-7) used its home court advantage to challenge fourth ranked Cholet Basket (7-2) on Saturday. The visitors from Cholet managed to secure only one-point victory 83-82. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a good game for Chris Horton who saved his team from a defeat with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Pau-Lacq-Orthez’s coach Laurent Vila tried various players’ combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn’t help to avoid defeat in this game. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Cholet Basket. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Dijon. Pau-Lacq-Orthez lost their fifth game in a row. They dropped to the fifteenth position with seven games lost. Cholet Basket will face JDA Dijon (#4) at home in the next round. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#8) and hope to win that game.

Bottom-ranked Chorale de Roanne managed to get a second victory, breaking the series of five consecutive losses. This time newly promoted Chorale de Roanne won against tenth-ranked Le Mans 100-84. It’s especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 16-point difference suggests that Chorale de Roanne is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. They shot the lights out from three nailing 13 long-distance shots on high 61.9 percentage. The best player for the winners was American guard Marcquise Reed (190-95, college: Clemson, agency: Pensack Sports) who scored 36 points (!!!) and 4 assists. His fellow American import swingman Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Alti Sport) chipped in 16 points and 5 rebounds.

Nanterre – Levallois 66-81

Strasbourg – Chalon 95-75

Very expected game when 15th ranked Chalon/Saor (2-7) was smashed on the road by eleventh ranked SIG Strasbourg (4-5) 95-75 on Saturday.

JDA Dijon will play against Cholet Basket (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Chorale de Roanne managed to get a second victory, breaking the series of five consecutive losses. This time newly promoted Chorale de Roanne won against tenth-ranked Le Mans 100-84. It’s especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 16-point difference suggests that Chorale de Roanne is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. The best player for the winners was Marcquise Reed who scored 36 points (!!!) and 4 assists. Chorale de Roanne’s coach Laurent Pluvy allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Chorale de Roanne (2-7) moved-up to fifteenth place, which they share with Pau-Lacq-Orthez and Chalon. Le Mans at the other side dropped to the eleventh position with six games lost. Chorale de Roanne will have a break next round.
Sixteenth-ranked Pau-Lacq-Orthez (2-7) used its home court advantage to challenge fourth ranked Cholet Basket (7-2) on Saturday. The visitors from Cholet managed to secure only one-point victory 83-82. However their fans expected much easier game. It was a good game for Chris Horton who saved his team from a defeat with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Pau-Lacq-Orthez’s coach Laurent Vila tried various players’ combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn’t help to avoid defeat in this game. The victory was the sixth consecutive win for Cholet Basket. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Dijon. Pau-Lacq-Orthez lost their fifth game in a row. They dropped to the fifteenth position with seven games lost. Cholet Basket will face JDA Dijon (#4) at home in the next round. Pau-Lacq-Orthez will play against Gravelines-Dunkerque (#8) and hope to win that game.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 9: Levallois beat Nanterre on the road 81-66. Strasbourg destroyed Chalon on its own court 95-75. Le Portel was outscored by Orleans in a road game 110-62. Boulazac managed to beat Limoges at home 84-81.

Bottom-ranked Chorale de Roanne managed to get a second victory, breaking the series of five consecutive losses. This time newly promoted Chorale de Roanne won against tenth-ranked Le Mans 100-84. It’s especially surprising that the victory came too easily and 16-point difference suggests that Chorale de Roanne is in a good shape to leave the bottom place. They shot the lights out from three nailing 13 long-distance shots on high 61.9 percentage. The best player for the winners was American guard Marcquise Reed (190-95, college: Clemson, agency: Pensack Sports) who scored 36 points (!!!) and 4 assists. His fellow American import swingman Justin Carter (193-87, college: Creighton, agency: Alti Sport) chipped in 16 points and 5 rebounds.

Gravelines – Chalons-Reims 71-74

Strasbourg – Chalon 95-75

Very expected game when 15th ranked Chalon/Saor (2-7) was smashed on the road by eleventh ranked SIG Strasbourg (4-5) 95-75 on Saturday.
