Coupe de France quarter-final round-up

Valéry Demory ©  Valéry Demory (left) saw his team Lattes-Montpellier continue their Coupe de France run with a solid road win against Tarbes (72-59).

Montpellier took the lead for good after three minutes of play in the first quarter and maintained a 4-point advantage until the end of first half (36-32).

Tarbes failed to get going in the second half but kept it close because of the efforts of Roneeka Hodges.

However their down-fall was giving Montpellier free trips to the free-throw line.

Montpellier went 16-of-20 from the charity stripes during the last two quarters, while allowing Tarbes only 8 trips.

Montpellier maintained their focus and discipline and with 19 points coming from Iva Perovanovic cruised to victory.

Montpellier will meet Tarbes in round 25 of the LFB on 2 April.

Hervé Coudray © Romain Chaib  Mondeville's last visit to Paris Bercy was in 2004, and Hervé Coudray (right) views this competition as a ticket for the EuroCup Women action next season.

Although his side was the visitor in Aix-en-Provence you could have been forgiven for thinking that Mondeville were the hosts as they went on a 17-4 run to open up a (25-12) lead by the end of the first quarter.

Aix-en-Provence did their best for the rest of the match to keep the game exciting but were unable to bring down the deficit enough to trouble their opponents.

Valeriya Berezhynska and Yacine Séné led the way for Mondeville with 22 and 18 points each, while Carren Gay hit 20 points for Aix-en-Provence.

Bourges Basket kept the hopes of retaining the Joë Jaunay trophy in defeating Nantes-Rezé in the first quarter-final.

Arras and Villeneuve d'Ascq will meet for the fifth time this season in the closing match of the French Cup's quarter-final on Wednesday, 6 April 2011.

The draw for the semi-final is as follows:
Bourges Basket vs. USO Mondeville
Villeneuve d'Ascq or Arras vs. Lattes-Montpellier
