LFB round 18, part one

After a LFB break of one week due to the Coupe de France, four matches from the 18th round were played.

These games were originally planed for Wednesday, 16 February 2011. But the teams that are not involved in the EuroLeague Women and EuroCup Women competitions were allowed to bring their games forward.

In the TV match broadcast by Ardennes TV Charleville-Mézières beat Toulouse (68-45).
