There is only one leader at the top of the Betclic Elite after the fifteenth day, before the break and it is quite logically Monaco, winner in steamroller mode, Tuesday at Fos-sur-Mer (53-97 ). Sasa Obradovic’s men, after their disappointment in Milan in the Euroleague on Friday (71-79), got over their nerves on the Azureans. Five players totaled 10 points or more, including four Frenchies – Strazel 15, Ouattara 14, Makoundou 13 and 10 for an Adrien Moerman who found some color.

The runner-up Boulogne-Levallois (11-4), defeated by Strasbourg on Monday evening (81-84), is joined by Cholet, who continued their canonical start to the season by dominating a diminished Limoges behind Enzo Goudou-Sinha’s 17 points (81-74).

The other team playing in the Euroleague, Asvel, defeated in the week in Madrid (92-73), confirmed its good momentum in the Championship by winning, against a decimated Nanterre (88-73), a third success in a row. which allows him to climb to fifth place, tied with Bourg. With 9 wins for 6 losses, the men of TJ Parker, guided by Nando De Colo (17 points, 3/5 to 3 points, 6 assists) and Alex Tyus (15 points, 7 rebounds), have a foot and a half in Leaders Cup. The absence of the three-time defending champion during the mid-season tournament (February 17-19 in Saint-Chamond) would have looked like an industrial accident.

Terry Tarpey wakes up Le Mans

Only two victories separating the 7th Limoges (8-6), from the 14th Gravelines (6-9), the last two sesames will probably only know their recipient at the end of the first leg, during the 17th day (January 15 and 16). ). Le Mans nevertheless took a big step by confirming its awakening (8-7, 8th), after six defeats in a row, against the promoted Nancy, overtaken at Antarès (96-82). A second success in a row which still owes a lot to European vice-champion Terry Tarpey (6 points, 6 rebounds, but the best “+ /-” of his own with +20).

Ronald March wears Roanne in overtime

In ambush, Strasbourg (7-8, 9th), as well as Roanne (6-8 with a late match), which made the difference in overtime (102-100) on the side of Bourg-en-Bresse. James Palmer (18 points) preferred to have done the hardest part by winning the 3-point overtime at the buzzer. But Maxime Roos (17 points) and especially Ronald March, author of 20 of his 26 points (10/18, 7 rebounds, 6 fouls caused) in the second half and in extra time, allowed the Chorale to win the timpani.

At the bottom of the ranking, Le Portel, after its successes over Cholet and Monaco, confirmed its recovery by dominating (88-74) a plummeting Blois (10 defeats in the last 11 games). A success that allows the northern club to temporarily get out of the red zone despite a record identical to its victim of the evening (5-10).

Paris liberated, Pau falls Dijon

Paris and Pau for their part extracted themselves from this dangerous zone (6-9, 11th tied with Nanterre and the BCM) by winning respectively against Gravelines (98-96) and Dijon (78-66). With a fiery Matthieu Gauzin and Justin Robinson (15 and 13 points) in the money-time, the Northerners perhaps thought they had done the hardest part (79-74, 35th) in the capital. They scuttled each other, seeing Paris remember on a 3-point shot from Kyle Allman 13 seconds from the gong (96-96). Then, scrambling the match point, the BCM saw Axel Toupane escape and offer victory to his team.

Pau, despite its financial worries and a very small squad this season, for its part delivered a match full of control and limited the yet prolific Dijon attack. Behind a Vitalis Chikoko in verve (20 points, 8 rebounds) and Michael Stockton (15 units), Elan Béarnais managed to contain David Holston (an extremely rare 0 point for the Burgundy leader).
