Heated discussion in LF2 about the
admission of Perpignan Basket

The discussions about the admission into the LF2 of Perpignan Basket took centre stage by the presidents from the 12 clubs in this division for the last few days, overshadowing the games of this weekend.

Perpignan Basket won their appeal at the end of October which allows them to resume professional basketball duties despite being bankrupt.

They had a legal option of taking up their place in the LFB. But in the end they settled for a spot in the second division. They are scheduled to play their first match of the season on 23 November.

In the meanwhile with the exception of the CFBB (INSEP), the presidents of the clubs have released a statement calling for a boycott of Perpignan Basket.

Hervé Régior, the president of Perpignan, understands the feelings of the other clubs. But he thinks his club has won its case in the court of law and the judgement must be accepted.

What happened on the basketball courts in LF2 this weekend

With COB Calais not playing this weekend, Roche Vendée took the opportunity to move to the top of the table by beating Reims BF (71-52).

Dunkerque Malo's troubles on their home court continued with a defeat against Illkirch Graffenstaden (61-73).

In an interesting match-up between Céline Schmitt-Sendner from Illkirch Graffenstaden and Dace Pierre-Joseph from Dunkerque Malo they lived up to expectation. While Pierre-Joseph fired in 18 points and picked up 7 rebounds for the hosts, Schmitt-Sendner knocked down 22 points for the visitors.

Kelly Corre

In the battle between two of the newly promoted teams, Chartres came out on top against Charnay (70-59). Chartres controlled the first minutes (13-3) and then paced themselves the rest of the way with 21 points by Magali Mendy.

Aix-en-Provence conceded just 11 points during the second half of their game against Le Havre while scoring 36. Kelly Corre (in picture) finished with 18 points for Aix in their (59-38) win.

Pau Lacq-Orthez beat Limoges (77-69) with a yo-yo performance. For the first 20 minutes Pau were running away with the game, going into the locker room (52-34) ahead.

Maxine Bezin, the coach from Limoges, started to lose his patience during the third quarter and picked up a technical foul with three minutes played and his team trailing (36-58).

His players then woke up and went on a 15-0 run in less than four minutes. It took a big three-pointer from way down-town by Marion Arfelis to stop Limoges from completing the comeback.

Pau regained control and went into the final quarter leading (65-57). They just had enough points in hand to keep Limoges at bay. Awa Gueye and Ingrid Bunel had 20 and 19 points for Pau while Brookilyn Brook knocked down 20 for Limoges.

Léon Trégor won their first game in LF2 this season by beating the CFBB (77-44).

L'actualité de l'intégration de Perpignan en L2F en avant

Pendant que Perpignan disputera son premier match le 23 Novembre en LF2, après être re-admis, Calais est au repos forcé pendant que son plus féroce adversaire en haut du tableau, Roche Vendée enregistre une nouvelle victoire après avoir battu Reims à domicile (71-52).

Illkirch-Graffenstaden montre ses griffes en visitant Dunkerque Malo et arrache une victoire (73-61). Pendant que Céline Schmitt-Sendner rugit et met 22 points pour l'équipe gagnante, les 18 points et 7 rebonds de Dace Pierre-Joseph sont en vain.

Aix-en-Provence a vite oublié sa défaite contre les Alsaciennes le weekend dernier pour s'affirmer dans le deuxième mi-temps contre Le Havre (59-38). Kelly Corre contribue 18 points pour la victoire de son équipe.

Pau Lacq Orthez s'impose contre Limoges (77-69) après avoir presque perdu contrôle du match après la première mi-temps. Les efforts de Awa Gueye et Ingrid Bunel avec 20 et 19 points pour Pau ont été récompensés. Brookilyn Brook (20 points) est déçue après cette nouvelle défaite pour Limoges.

Le face-à-face entre les deux promus se décide pour Chartres qui prend l'avantage dès le premier quart avec une bonne prestation de Magali Mendy (21 points) pour un score final de (70-59) contre Charnay Basket.

Enfin les Bretonnes, Léon Trégor, remportent leur premièr succès contre le CFBB (74-44).
