LFB round 2 comes to an end four months after it started

Four months after round two of the LFB, it has finally come to and end. Strikes and fuel shortage in October 2010 prevented the match between Challes-les-Eaux and Tarbes to be played.

Erin Thorn © LFB  Erin Thorn (left) who picked up an ankle injury a few weeks ago decided to end her season in France. She will continue her rehabilitation in America and expects to be fit for the start of WNBA season.

Her replacement is Roneeka Hodges who made her début against Challes-les-Eaux. Hodges played in France before with COB Calais during the 2005-2006 season.

Challes did not make the mistake of their previous meeting.

This time they played more collectively and had five players in double digits in a game that they were in front for more than 39 minutes.
