Top 3 win, bottom 2 lose

Bourges Basket controlled their visitors Lyon BF for their 14th domestic win of the season (64-57). Céline Dumerc helped herself to 7 assists and 12 points in leading the French Champions to victory. Mistie Bass led Lyon with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Despite the defeat Lyon remain in 4th place while Bourges stay on the top.

Lattes-Montpellier needed a wake-up call after a poor first quarter (14-23) to finally blow away Angers (87-56) to keep their second place intact.

Lidija Turcinovic

For the first time this season all three youth players from Montpellier played and scored. Lidija Turcinovic (in picture) helped herself to 9 points in her 21 minutes on the court while Fleur Devillers and Mélanie Riondet added 5 and 2 points respectively.

Villeneuve d'Ascq were not brillant but still too strong for USO Mondeville (56-31). Olayinka Sanni kept out of foul problems and finished the game with 13 points to lead all scoring. Mondeville hit just 27% of their shots.

Basket Landes showed no mercy to Cavigal Nice with a crushing victory (84-59). Valériane Ayayi  put up another strong performance for those thinking of voting for FIBA Europe young player of the year award. She led with 23 points.

Astou Dabo

The only good news to come out of the game for Cavigal Nice was the return of Astan Dabo (in picture) after her 13-month lay-off due to an ACL injury.

Charleville-Mézières ended their losing streak with a victory against Nantes Rezé (79-67). The hard working Ekaterina Dimitrova (13 points) and Geidre Paugaite (19 points) were the deciding elements in the victory.

Arras suffered their eighth straight LFB defeat. They lost at home (59-63) to Tarbes. The game was decided at the free-throw line during the last five seconds of the game. Former Arras player and French Cup hero Sabrina Reghaïssia condemmed her former club with the last 2 free throws of the game.

Toulouse continue their climb away from the LFB relegation zone with a victory against Hainaut Basket (68-60).

Cavigal Nice and USO Mondeville are out of the regular season title chase if they do not win all their games and current leader Bourges Basket lose all their remaining games.
