The American duo of Jennifer Humphrey (left) and Tamera Young combined for 43 points in the home victory.
Basket Landes opened the game with a (7-0) start with a triple by Marion Laborde and back to back baskets by Young.
They stretched their advantage (23-9) with nine minutes played before relaxing a little too much allowing Chandrea Jones to score 4 points in a 7-0 run by Toulouse (16-23).
Laborde opened the scoring in the second quarter with a trey and Humphrey did the rest as their lead grew (36-22) with four minutes to play until the break.
Leslie Mantanga took full advantage of extra time on the court and single handedly kept her Toulouse in the game before Lola de Angelis and Suzanna Milovanovic connected from behind the three-point line.
All the same with Humphrey hitting 6-of-6 from the field and a total of 15 first-half points Basket Landes went into the locker room with a comfortable advantage (46-31).

Iva Perovanic (left) scored 10 points for Montpellier during the first quarter as they edged out Calais (20-17). However it was not until the 16th minute that Montpellier took charge of the LFB match.
Ana Lelas hit a triple at the start of an 11-1 run that enabled Montpellier to go into the interval leading (39-31).

Djéné Diawara's (right) 18 points and 11 rebounds were all that Charleville-Mézières needed to get past Union Hainaut Basket (59-54).
Diawara was unstoppable during the first ten minutes and scored 12 of her team's 17 points to edge out UHB (17-10). She added 6 more points during the second quarter to her account as her team went into the interval ahead (35-21).
Although she did not score again she did not allow Alison Bales from Union to score as her side hung on for their third victory of the season.
USO Mondeville were beaten again at home, this time it was Arras that came away with all the points (69-82).
Fireworks were expected in this game and with the score (23-22) in favour of the hosts after 10 minutes, a high scoring game was on the card.
Arras started to play more defensively for the rest of the game not allowing Mondeville much chance to score from outside the paint.
Mondeville dominated the rebounding but failed to capitalise on second chance opportunities while Aija Putnina and Pauline Akonga N’Simbo with 18 points each for Arras picked up valuable points.
In the final game of Saturday night Challes-les-Eaux's good form continued with a hard fought victory (74-66) against Aix-en-Provence.
