This is still too early stage of the Regular Season in ProB and we should expect many changes in upcoming rounds. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, favorites losing the games, games ending by tiny margin and even winless team recording their first victory. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of Nantes (3-1) at the home court on Tuesday night. Hosts were defeated by Denain Voltaire (3-1) 76-67. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Nantes. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Denain Voltaire looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of Jamaican Tyran De-Lattibeaudiere (201-91, college: Lamar) who helped to win the game recording 12 points and 9 rebounds. Norwegian forward Chris-Ebou Ndow (201-93, college: NW Missouri St., agency: Duran International) contributed with 15 points and 4 assists for the winners. Seychellois center Abdel-Kader Sylla (204-90) replied with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds for Nantes. Denain Voltaire keeps a position of league leader, which they share with 6 other teams including defeated Nantes. Denain Voltaire is looking forward to face Saint-Quentin (#9) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Nantes will play against Provence Basket (#18) in Fos-sur-Mer and is hoping to win this game.
An interesting game for JA Vichy (3-1) which hosted in Vichy one of their biggest challengers Gries/Oberhoffen (2-2). Third ranked JA Vichy managed to get a 9-point victory 85-76. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Gries/Oberhoffen. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Pendarvis Williams (198-91, college: Norfolk St.) who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 5 steals and David Denave who added 21 points and 6 assists (made all of his seven free throws) during the contest. At the losing side Bruno Cingala-Mata (200-93) responded with 21 points and 5 rebounds (perfect from the field making all eight shots !!!). Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. JA Vichy have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with 6 other teams. Gries/Oberhoffen at the other side dropped to the eighth place with two games lost. They share the position with 4 other teams. JA Vichy will play against Paris (#17) on the road in the next round which should be an easy win for them. Gries/Oberhoffen will play against Olympique Antibes (#14) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Poitiers’ fans can celebrate the first win of their team after three consecutive losses. They used home court advantage to defeat Paris (1-3) 90-79 on Friday. The winners were led by Carl Ona-Embo who scored that evening 24 points. Even 15 points and 8 rebounds by Garry Florimont did not help to save the game for Paris. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Poitiers left bottom position moving up to thirteenth place, which they share with 4 other teams including defeated Paris. It was Paris’ third loss in a row. Poitiers will meet Saint Chamond (#16) on the road in the next round. Paris will play against JA Vichy and hope to win that game.
Bottom-ranked Provence Basket is still unable to win any game. But it was rather predictable considering how strong their opponent was. This time they lost on the road their fourth consecutive match to seventh ranked Quimper UJAP (3-1) 76-64. Lucas Dussoulier fired 18 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. Quimper UJAP have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with 6 other teams. Provence Basket at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. Quimper UJAP’s next round opponent will be Aix-Maurienne (#15) in Aix-les-Bains which should be an easy win for them. Provence Basket will play at home against Nantes and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Souffelweyersheim was also quite interesting. 7th ranked SPO Rouen (2-2) played at the court of eighth ranked Souffelweyersheim (3-1). Souffelweyersheim managed to secure a 6-point victory 86-80 on Saturday. It was a key game for the top position in the league. It was a very good performance for Mehdy-Sofian Ngouama who helped to win the game recording 18 points. Souffelweyersheim have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with 6 other teams. Loser SPO Rouen dropped to the eighth place with two games lost. Souffelweyersheim will face ALM Evreux (#11) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. SPO Rouen will play against Lille Metropole and hope to win that game.

Other games in round 4 were not that significant. Nancy was beaten by Lille on the road 81-73. Saint-Quentin won against Aix-Maurienne on its own court 84-76. Evreux managed to outperform Saint-Chamond in a road game 90-78. Blois managed to beat Antibes at home 75-72.
The most impressive performance of 4th round was 10 points and 6 rebounds by Domagoj Bosnjak of Rouen.

It was a very good performance for naturalized Burkinabe Jean-Victor Traore (203-85) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 20 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists. American guard Mike Holton Jr. (190-90, college: St.Michael’s) contributed with 26 points for the winners.

Blois – Antibes 75-72

Not a big story in a game when 13th ranked Olympique Antibes (1-3) was edged on the road by fifth ranked ADA Blois (3-1) 75-72 on Saturday.

Now that we’ve reached November, European competition is in full swing across the board. Though France is only represented in two of the ‘Big Four’ competitions, six teams have a chance to add to their trophy case this season, with three teams competing in the 7 Days EuroCup and the other three competing in the Basketball Champions League. Now that each team has played a few games in their respective competitions, we take a look at how they’ve played and what could happen for each team going forward.

EuroCup
The 7 Days EuroCup is the competition that is furthest along, as each team has already played each team in the group one time. Here is who’s playing in the EuroCup this season:

AS Monaco Basket (3-2)
While AS Monaco Basket has the best track record of any French team in the EuroCup at 3-2, they’re still third out of the six teams in their group through the first round of games. A big win over co-group leaders Promitheas was canceled by a three-point loss to Maccabi Rishon Le-Zion for that team’s only win so far. One player who’s having an especially good competition is Anthony Clemmons (186-PG-94, college: Iowa, agency: BeoBasket), who is averaging four more points per game than he’s at in the French league, shooting 64% from the floor (compared to 41% in France).

Limoges CSP Elite (1-4)
Limoges CSP Elite‘ has had a rough start to the season in all aspects, as they not only sit in last place in their group at EuroCup but also sport a 2-4 record in the LNB Pro A standings. Their only win in European competition is the team they share last place with at 1-4, and each of their losses has come by an average of 13.5 points per game. Fortunately for them, KK Partizan NiS Beograd is in total control of the group at 5-0 but it gets less dominant after that, as every other team is either 3-2 or 2-3. The team will have to improve but advancing out of the group isn’t out of the question.

JSF Nanterre (2-3)
Much like Limoges CSP Elite, JSF Nanterre‘s Group C could really be anyone’s game. Though UNICS Kazan sits in first place at 4-1, three teams are at 3-2, which makes JSF Nanterre‘s fifth-place position a little less frustrating since they are only one game back. One of the higher scoring teams in the competition, if JSF Nanterre can clamp down just a bit on defense (they’re allowing opponents to shoot 58% from the floor) they can easily improve their position in the group.

Basketball Champions League
The BCL has played three games so far, but the regular season for this competition is longer than the EuroCup, so the jury is still out on these three teams plenty of time to improve on their places:

SIG Strasbourg (2-1)
SIG Strasbourg hasn’t had a great start domestically (1-5 in Pro A) but they are off to a solid 2-1 start in the Basketball Champions League after a dominating 81-63 win over Manresa this week. Since all of their losses in Pro A are to teams in the top 6 in the standings, there is reason to believe that the real SIG Strasbourg is the team lurking in the BCL, and while they’re in a competitive group there is room to advance out of Group A.

Elan Bearnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez (0-3)
Elan Bearnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez‘s 0-3 start in Group B is not very encouraging, especially considering that some of the best teams in the group like Hapoel Jerusalem and San Pablo Inmobiliaria Miraflores Burgos. Teksut Bandirma also remains a tough out despite their 1-2 start, so it won’t be an easy road for Elan Bearnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez going forward. The team is allowing nearly 10 more points per game than they are domestically while allowing opponents to shoot 46% from beyond the arc in the competition as well. It’s too early to panic, but there’s more cause for concern here than for other French teams in European competition.

JDA Dijon Bourgogne (3-0)
Rounding out the French teams in the Basketball Champions League is JDA Dijon Bourgogne, who arguably has had the most success this season for a French team in European play. Not only is the team off to a sizzling 3-0 start in Group D, but their three wins have come by an average of 16 points per game. While plenty of good opponents remain in the group, wins over Neptunas Klaipeda (by 14 points) and Happy Casa Brindisi (16 points) are impressive and encouraging for the group going forward. It’s a long one, but JDA Dijon Bourgogne has a road to success in this competition if they can continue to produce.

youtube Elan Bearnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez (Jeep ELITE ProA) inked experienced 34-year old American ex-international point guard

Elan Bearnais Pau-Lacq-Orthez (Jeep ELITE ProA) inked experienced 34-year old American ex-international point guard Justin Dentmon (183-85kg-85, college: Washington, agency: Slash Sports). He played most recently at Beirut Club in Lebanese LBL league. In 9 games he averaged 14.8ppg, 2.0rpg, 2.8apg and 1.3spg last season. Dentmon helped them to make it to the final after they ended regular season as second best team. He also played for KT Sonicboom (KBL) in South Korean league where in 20 games he had very impressive stats: 16.5ppg, 2.9rpg and 2.7apg. Dentmon also spent pre-season at Anyang KGC (KBL) in South Korean league.
In 2010 (a year after he left the college) Texas Legends selected him as fourth overall pick in D-League draft.
He attended University of Washington until 2009 and it will be his eleventh (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Dentmon has tried to make it to the NBA and played in the NBA Pro Summer League in 2016.
Among other achievements he won Chinese CBA championship title in 2016. Dentmon received also Asia-Basket.com All-Chinese CBA Honorable Mention award back in 2016.
He represented USA at the Panamerican Games in Guadalajara (Mexico) eight years ago. Dentmon’s team won Bronze and his stats at that event were 5 games: 9.2ppg, Assists-5(3.2apg), FGP: 50.0%, 3PT: 37.5%, FT: 85.7%.
Dentmon is a very experienced player. He has quite traveled the world as his pro career brought him to nine different countries on three different continents (Europe, Asia and of course North America). Dentmon has played previously professionally in Dominican Rep., Israel, Italy, Lithuania (Zalgiris), Puerto Rico, Turkey (Galatasaray), Venezuela, NBA (San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors) and China (Blue Whales).
His game is described as: (by Netanel Dahan)
A very good scoring combo guard, started his first 2 years for U-Washington as a PG with Brandon Roy, and spent his last 2 years at the shooting guard spot. Lighting quick. A prolific scorer who can make a lot of points in short amount of time and “shoot the lights out” even at the elite level. Very handful player with great ball handling skills and control. Has an incredible athleticism for his size. Great shooter from every range. Makes good use of spin dribble and screens to score or kick out. He is very tough, strong and confident, and has no fear at all to face tall defenders although he is small for good and bad. He is a good penetrator and drives both ways although it seems he prefers more to drive to the right always looking for contact. An amazing 1 on 1 player very hard to stop even at the very high level-very creative and versatile.
A solid passer (3rd all time assists leader for U-Washington) with good court vision. As for his defense he is a good stealer(2nd all time steals leader for U-Washington) and has very strong legs, quick hands, and quick footwork but it seems that he needs to a little more aggressive or put little more effort to guard NBA players on daily base. His shot selection also can be little better. His brother Bruce Barron committed to Oregon after getting 89 rating from ESPN and being nominated to McDonalds All America
