2014 Coupe de France final:
a repeat of the 2008 match

In the Coupe de France final in 2008 Bourges Basket beat Villeneuve d'Ascq not only for the title but also for the sixth time in that season. The two teams face each other again in the French Cup final on 10 May 2014 at the stade de Pierre de Coubertin in Paris.

Céline Dumerc, Nwal-Endéné Miyem and Emméline Ndongue are the only members of the Bourges Basket team still at the club, while Villeneuve's current coach Frédéric Dusart was the assistant coach in 2008 and his assistant Ljubica Drljaca (in picture below) was playing on the losing team.

Bourges Basket hosted Lattes-Montpellier in the first semi-final which was broadcast live on Sport+.

Lattes-Montpellier lost their captain Gaëlle Skrela towards the end of the first quarter having ruptured her plantar fascia. At the time of her departure Bourges led (17-14) and the match was nicely balanced.

Despite losing the battle of the boards, Montpellier managed to stay on the tail of their host for most of the second quarter. Bourges picked up in the last two minutes of the first half and went into the break leading (37-30).

Bourges paced themselves the rest of the way to victory (67-51) with Céline Dumerc (7 assists) and Marianna Tolo scoring 14 points each. Fatimatou Sacko and Ingrid Tangueray scored 17 and 14 points in defeat.

When it comes to drama in French basketball this season, Villeneuve d'Ascq are the queens. They walloped their guests 23-8 in the first quarter and then went to sleep.

Toulouse Métropole picked themselves up to outscore Villeneuve 39-22 over the next two quarters to go into the final quarter in front (47-45).

Toulouse kept the pressure on and held on to the lead until Laetitia Kamba tied the game (51-51).

Pushed on by the roar of the home crowd and the hard words from their coach Frédéric Dusart, Villeneuve finally got in the groove and finished the game with a flourish to win (64-55).

Lenae Williams contributed 17 points while Antonija Misura fired in 20 points in defeat.
