By the end of the first quarter they regained control to go ahead (19-16).

When it comes to excitement in LF2 this season, then Reims BF are the team to watch. They made more three-pointers (13) shots than two-point shots (12) and still ended up losing to their hosts.
Roche Vendée held their nerve at critical moments and turned the ball over less to pull off an exciting victory (83-76). Johanne Tayeau and Sabrina Bouzenna led the way with 18 and 14 points each.
