For the second time in the history of the LFB Challenge Round Tarbes lift the winner's trophy. It is also the first silverware in the Ligue Féminine de Basketball for the Tarbes coaching duo of Cyril Sicsic and Lina Brazdeïkyte.
Tarbes swept the series 2-0 to close the season on a positive note after a yo-yo season in the LFB. In game one it was only during the final three minutes of the encounter that Tartbes managed to edge their nose in front and win on the road (71-67).
Paoline Salagnac (in picture below) had been the lady on form knocking down 28 points for the winners. For Basket Landes it was a tough loss for their last home game of the season.
Game two was not so close despite a perfect first quarter by Basket Landes (21-13). Tarbes made up their deficit by the end of the second quarter to lead at the break (35-34).
Then Tarbes took control of the game for good during the first part of the third quarter with a 12-0 run to open up a double-digit lead (47-34) with 15 minutes to play.
Basket Landes failed in their attempt to regain the lead and Tarbes celebrated on their court with their supporters a comfortable victory (68-55) against their derby rivals.
Both teams, Basket Landes and Tarbes have qualified for the EuroCup Women competition for 2013-1014 season.
