Tarbes' yo-yo season continues as they did just enough at home to keep out Charleville-Mézières (63-56). Valeriya Berezhynska was again the pick of players for Tarbes with 16 points but Joyce Cousseins-Smith provided the fireworks off the bench with 12 points and 4 assists.

COB Calais finished the first half of the 2014-2015 season with another defeat although they started well against Mondeville scoring their first three shots. This loss leaves them deep in trouble at the bottom end of the table.

On the other hand, Mondeville had to wait until the third quarter to pull away with a 17-2 run to put the match out of their hosts' hands (60-41) with 15 minutes to play. K. B. Sharp (28 points) and Pauline Krawczyk combined for (8-of-17) shots from beyond the arc in the (83-69) victory.
