When the assists are high, you win

Ask Kathy Wambe...

Géraldine Robert and Kathy WambeGéraldine Robert and Kathy Wambe

Kathy Wambe was an LFB assist queen during her time playing for Villeneuve d'Ascq. Unfortunately her 2014-2015 season ended before the first game of the Belgium season with an Achilles tear.

However the former Villeneuve d' Ascq point guard who had dished out 16 assists in a LFB game of 2007 will be happy to see that French club teams still like to pass the ball around.

Wbbif wish Kathy Wambe a speedy recovery and hope to see her soon. In the meantime, Géraldine Robert, her former team-mate is back in Villeneuve d'Ascq after four years away.

Les passes décisives sont significatives
pour la victoire

COB Calais est la seule formation qui perd quoiqu'elle a plus de passes décisives que son adversaire.

Lattes Montpellier tombe encore une fois pendant que Tango Bourges Basket danse à nouveau et a - comme Basket Landes - qu'une défaite à son nom.

Géraldine RobertGéraldine Robert

Une saison et six journées en LFB et Angers se trouve au milieu du tableau après avoir enregistré un grand succès contre Lyon BF (93-79). Pareil pour les passes décisives, les Angevines sont gagnantes avec 27 contre 15.

Lizanne Murphy contribue à la victoire 29 points et 6 passes, épaulée par Camille Aubert (10 points, 8 passes) et Romana Hejdova (17 points, 4 passes). Pour Bintou Marizy Dieme qui a tout essayé (20 points, 5 passes), cette défaite est amère.

Les co-équipières de Géraldine Robert (16 points, en image) de Villeneuve d'Ascq avec Virginie Bremont (8 points, 7 passes, 2 interceptions), Johanne Gomis (10 points, 4 passes) et Megan Mahoney (4 points, 4 passes) s'imposent contre Lattes Montpellier (83-62). Elles ont aussi 6 passes décisives de plus, 24 contre 18. Mistie Bass n'a rien à se reprocher avec 18 points, 3 passes et 1 interception.

Elles ont cru, les joueuses de COB Calais, mais dans les dernières minutes et dû à une maladresse au tir prime, elles succombent (67-73) contre Basket Landes. Les perdantes sont les co-équipières de Onayssa Sbahi (6 points, 4 passes), Jennie Fouasseau (15 points, 1 passe), Marie-Berundette Mbuyamba-Tshimango (6 points, 1 passe) et doivent maintenant se remobiliser pour leur prochaine journée.

Les Landaises, emmenées par Carmen Guzman (8 points, 5 passes), Alexia Plagnard et Julie Barennes avec 10 points chacune, se sont donc sauvées avec une cinquième victoire.

Elles waltzent à nouveau. Tango Bourges Basket s'imposent facilement (80-49) contre Métropole Toulouse avec aussi 23 passes décisives contre 8 des Toulousaines. Les meilleures marqueses de Bourges sont Danielle Adams (19 points, 2 passes) et Johannah Leedham (18 points, 3 passes), épaulées par Diandra Tchatchouang, Romane Bernies et Paoline Salagnac avec 5 passes décisives chacune.

Miranda Ayim (16 points, 1 passes) et Olivia Epoupa (7 points, 5 passes, 5 interceptions) n'ont pas pu stopper leur adversaire.

Saint-Amand Hainaut Basket gagne à domicile (76-66) contre US Mondeville et également avec 23 passes contre 12.

Shona Louise Thorburn (6 points, 10 passes) et ses co-équipières Astou Traore (17 points, 2 passes) et Paulina Akonga-Nsimbo (18 points, 1 passe) savourent la victoire. En vain sont les efforts de K. B. Sharp (7 points, 7 passes) et Courtney Hurt (26 points, 15 rebonds, 1 passe, 1 interception).

14 passes décisives pour Arras et une victoire (64-59) contre Tarbes Gesperre (3 passes décisives en total) laissent jubiler Michelle Plouffe (17 points, 10 rebonds, 4 passes). Kalis Loyd (16 points, 3 rebonds, 1 passe, 7 interceptions) échoue avec son équipe sans inspiration.

Nantes-Rezé perd Isis Arrondo après juste une minute de jeu et aussi sa rencontre contre Charleville-Mézières (50-67). Yacine Sene et Amel Bouderra contribuent 6 et 5 passes décisives pour l'équipe gagnante qui totalise 21 passes contre 14 des Déferlantes.
