The first round of the basketball Coupe de France started on Wednesday, 20 January 2010 with the match between Reims and USO Mondeville.
Mondeville took control of the game from the tip-off and led (23-10) after 10 minutes to go on to win (76-52).
Temeka Johnson (right) led the scoring with 18 points. She also had 9 steals and dished out a couple of assists.
On Friday there were two games: in the derby of Rezé, Nantes-Rezé beat CSP Rezé (69-48). Lindsay Taylor's (14 points) and Doriane Tahane's (11 points and 10 rebounds) work inside made sure that the team from the LFB were always in control.
Cob Calais' problems outside the basketball court continues. So they came to this match without Jennifer Humphrey, Iva Roglic and Lauren Neaves.
Charleville-Mézières took full advantage and led (44-23) by the interval. Djéné Diawara, Bélinda M’Boma and Zuzana Ondrejova scored 18 points each as Charleville-Mézières went on to win (89-56).
In a dramatic finish Karolina Piotrkiewicz (left) fired in a three-point buzzer-beater for Union Hainaut Basket-Saint Amand (UHB) to beat Villeneuve d'Ascq (69-68).
Emilie Gomis led the Villeneuve attack with 20 points and thought she had won the game with her last score of the game with five seconds to play.
However Clémence Beikes had other ideas and got the ball to Piotrkiewicz, who finished with a game high 21 points.
