2010 LFB Challenge Round finalists are Montpellier and Nantes-Rezé

The second leg of the LFB Challenge Round turned into an anti-climax with the teams leading after the first games qualifying for the final easily.

Nantes-Rezé, starting with a 28-point advantage against Challes-les-Eaux, were never in difficulty against their guests.

After the break the quality of the game improved. Nantes stepped up on the accelerator while outscoring Challes 23-13 during the third quarter.

Nantes-Rezé went on to win (71-53) with Lindsay Taylor (right) leading the scoring with 14 points.

Villeneuve d'Ascq started the match with a 22-point handicap scoring the first 5 points of the match.

However a 17-2 run at the end of the final quarter enabled them to end the season with a victory (60-56).
