The LFB round 14 has finally come to an end with Bourges Basket beating Perpignan Basket (56-47). Bourges Basket are now officially alone in second place, one game down on the leaders Lattes Montpellier and two games clear off Perpignan in third place.
The game which was broadcast live by Perpignan Basket's new Web TV partner profil tv was won by the current French Champions (56-47).
The game was defensive from the start. Bourges Basket lead at half time (29-27) mainly because of poor free-throwing success from their hosts (0-from-8).
During the third quarter Nwal-Endéné Miyem from Bourges was on fire offensively with 10 points. Hence her teams moved 9 points clear (44-35).
Perpignan tried but failed to get a run during the final quarter despite plenty of encouragement from the home supporters.
Bourges were not spectacular but were steady from the free-throw line, hitting 14-of-19 as they paced themselves towards another victory.
Perpignan who did not play badly lost the match in two areas: poor free-throwing 1-of-10 and conceding 16 points from turnovers.
