Basketball news: Lyons BF new playing kit takes center stage
With Lyons BF and Reims dominating LF2, the basketball news columns concentrated on the fact that Lyon has changed their playing kit once again.
They presented the tunics to the press earlier during the week and wore them for the first time in an official game against Pleyber-Christ.
Pleyber-Christ fell at home during week 6 to Reims (65-72) but were completely destroyed by Lyon in the latest round of games (52-93).
All ten players from Lyon scored with five of them finishing in double digits. Pleyber-Christ just had a bad game in which they turned the ball over 34 times.
Reims made it seven wins out of seven with a difficult home victory (62-52) against Armentières.
Roche Vendée are the only other team in the Ligue Féminine 2 that - at the moment - stay on the tail of Lyon and Reims.
They held off Elan Béarnais Pau Lacq Orthez (59-56) with 21 points coming from Christelle Morel to stay in third place.
