Bourges Basket found a solution to stop Fisher and Arras

Emméline Ndongue © Ligue Féminine de BasketBallBouges Basket got off to a flying start with Emméline Ndongue (right) and Nora Bujdoso doing a lot of the damage offensively to lead (14-4).

Bourges had put a system in place to stop Leilani Mitchell and Bernie Mosby so it was left to Fisher to find a way for Arras.

Fisher went to work at both ends of the court as Arras went on a 15-2 run to take the lead briefly (19-16).

Céline Dumerc put a stop to the Arras run. However the hosts were ahead (23-22) by the end of the first period with Fisher already on 11 points.

Bourges' zone defense troubled Arras and in addition Nwal Endéné Miyem started to find her way to the basket as the teams took turns to lead with Bourges edging in front (32-31).

Then the guests switched defensive systems once more and outscored Arras (17-2), concluded by a shot from the land of many from Cathy Melain to lead (49-33) at the break.

Bourges more or less ended the game as a contest as they increased their advantage early in the third period (66-33).

They went into the final quarter with a comfortable advantage (71-49). Despite the efforts of Fisher, Bourges cruised to victory (86-65).

Bourges had four players in double digits with Miyem leading the way with 15 points. Bujdoso, Ndongue and Alessandra Santos De Oliveira finished on 14,13 and 12 points respectively.

Villeneuve d'Ascq holding off Montpellier

Iziane Castro Marques has made a habit of scoring most of her points in the first half of the match. This match was no different as she scored 15 of her 18 points in the first half of the match.

Castro Marques opened the scoring as Villeneuve raced out to an early lead (6-1). Montpellier did not panic and made up their deficit to eventually draw level (16-16).

The lead was to change hands at each score with Montpellier winning the first period (21-22). The two teams continued to play cat and mouse through the second period and went into the interval level (42-42).

For Montpellier Gaëlle Skrela was leading the way with 13 points which included 3-of-3 from beyond the arc. She was not to score again during the second half of the match.

Ljubica Drljaca put Villeneuve in the lead for good at the start of the third period.

Sheana Mosch took over the offensive duties for Montpellier and was responsible for bringing Montpellier to within 3 points of Villeneuve (51-54).

This was the closest Montpellier was to get for the rest of match as Villeneuve went into the final period ahead (63-57).

Géraldine Robert © Ligue Féminine de BasketBallGéraldine Robert (left) made sure that Montpellier would not get back in the match with a scoring spree that gave her side a 10-point advantage (70-60).

Castro Marques ended any chance of a Montpellier victory with her only score of the second half with a shot from beyond the arc (75-62).

So the guests attempted some long shots. After a success from Alexia Plagnard (67-75), they had just under three minutes to save the game.

Yet Villeneuve managed to monopolise the ball for the rest of the game to win (77-67). Robert led the scoring with 22 points. Mosch also scored 22 points for Montpellier.

Amélie Pochet scored the first points of the game with a three-pointer almost 90 seconds of play. The pace remained slow and Reims led (5-2) after three minutes of play.

Mame-Marie Sy-Diop finally got the teams to increase the tempo as she sparked a flourish of baskets from both sides with Reims leading (13-10).

The hosts then applied full court press and scored 11 consecutive points to go ahead (24-10) by the end of the first period. Reims stretched the lead (33-14) early in the second period and went into the interval with a 15-point advantage (45-30).

Valeriya Berezhynska © Ligue Féminine de BasketBallValeriya Berezhynska (right) who had scored 11 points during the first half for Reims and Manon Sinico kept the pressure on Aix as Reims maintained their lead (57-42).

K. B. Sharp tried her best to unstable Reims. But it did not help in bringing the score down significantly and Reims went into the final period leading (71-54).

Still no joy for Basket Landes

Basket Landes, still without Naignouma Coulibaly and their captain Anaïs Le Gluher, faced Mondeville who were without Clarisse Costaz, the latest player to join their injury list.

Rankica Sarenac, the new recruit for Mondeville opened her account with the first points of the game after 45 seconds. She was very active during the opening minutes as Mondeville led (6-4).

Marion Laborde © Olivier SarreThe two sides exchanged scores regularly with Basket Landes edging in front (13-12) through Marion Laborde (left).

Lenae Williams only managed to hit one three-pointer in this match as Mondeville regained the lead (19-16). However it was the hosts that went in front by the end of the first period (21-20).

Basket Landes continued to attack during the second period and Laborde continued to score. On the other side Paoline Salagnac (17 points in the first half) was very active for Mondeville.

She kept her side on the tail of their hosts as she brought Mondeville to within 3 points just before the end of the first half (35-38).

Eva Lafaye fired in a shot from beyond the arc to take Basket Landes into the interval with an increased advantage (38-35).

Yet they appeared to be short of breath during the third period and allowed Mondeville to come back into the match and take the lead (53-50) as the game went into the final quarter.

The fourth period was full of action and incidents as both sides stepped up the tempo. Ana Perovic scored all the points for Basket Landes as the teams drew level (56-56).

Mondeville had tied the game once before taking the lead (61-62) after a couple of free-throws by Williams.

Bineta Diouf brought the teams level once again as she split a pair. Eventually Basket Landes went ahead through Ekaterina Dimitrova (67-64).

The home side thought they had won the game. But then up stepped Salagnac with a shot from down-town to take the game into overtime (67-67).

Basket Landes' poor free-throwing 12-of-21 compared to 10-of-13 from their opponents during regulation time would come to haunt them as they lost the game in the fifth quarter (82-78).

Mondeville dominated the first part of overtime (76-71) and then kept their nerve from the free-throw line to hold off the late charge by their opponents.

Salagnac led the scoring with 24 points while Williams, Sarenc and Ingrid Tanqueray all finished in double digits with 16, 15 and 12 points each.

Laborde led the way for Basket Landes with 24 points.

COB Calais pushed aside Nantes-Rezé

Cyril Sicsic © womensbasketball-in-france.comFor Cyril Sicsic (left) the first quarter was a nightmare as Nantes-Rezé dominated his sides in all sectors of the game.

Sandrine Ronot gave Nantes the lead with back to back scores (12-9) which they increased by the end of the first period (19-12).

Calais woke up during the second period and Lauren Neaves and Sanni Olayinka went to battle with Michel Van Gorp and Jessica Moore.

Olayinka in foul problems early was withdrawn from the frey but Mariame Dia took up the challenge.

Calais went on a (15-0) to regain the lead (29-21) and never looked back as they went into the interval leading (34-26).

With Aurélie Cibert in foul problems Belgium international Sarah Leemans had an extended run and was very active offensively as Calais pushed ahead (51-36)

Nantes-Rezé dominance on the rebounds resulted in the elimination of Olayinka for five personal fouls, this did not help Nantes as they managed to turn the ball over 31 times during the game.

Nantes were unable to bring down the deficit and with Cibert from Calais also leaving the game with five fouls Sicsic used the opportunity to play some of his younger player as Calais went on to win (66-51)
