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.

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.
