Basket Landes' challenge for the title took a big step in the right direction with a comfortable victory against Lyon BF (89-66). The game remained close during the first 20 minutes. But after the break Basket Landes stepped up a gear at both ends of the court, restricting their guests to just 28 points. With this win Basket Landes move into 4th position alone. Mistie Bass was yet again the leading scorer for Lyon with 22 points while Mame-Marie Sy-Diop's medical cover replacement Marina Markovic played in her first game.

La seizième journée de la LFB :
Arras et Cavigal Nice en danger

Basket Landes joint le top 4 pendant que Angers et USO Mondeville remportent des victoires importantes pour le maintien dans cette ligue.

Tango Bourges Basket gagne facilement, même avec un effectif réduit, contre Toulouse Métropole (71-37).

Avec des belles prestations de Gaëlle Skrela (22 points, 5 passes) et Virginie Brémont (19 points), Lattes-Montpellier a aussi un jeu facile (86-59) contre Tarbes, handicapé par des blessures.

Villeneuve d'Ascq s'échappe de peu d'une défaite contre Nantes Rezé (76-70) avec six joueuses de Villeneuve contribuant à la victoire 22 passes décisives.

Ce sont alors Bourges Basket, Lattes-Montpellier et Villeneuve d'Ascq qui sont dans le top 3 suivi par Basket Landes qui continue à s'éloigner du milieu du tableau. Les Landaises s'imposent contre Lyon BF (89-66) dont la défaite relègue les Lyonnaises à la cinquième place dans le classement.

Arras perd pour la dixième fois consécutive. C'est à USO Mondeville à les battre (69-76) malgré les efforts énormes de Naignouma Coulibaly (28 points, 17 rebonds, 2 contres et 2 interceptions).

Pour Mondeville c'est grace au jeu collectif et toutes les joueuses, emmenées par Courtney Hurst (18 points) et Julie Vanloo (16 points), marquant des points.

Ce sont Amel Bouderra (22 points, 6 passes décisives) et Jacinta Monroe qui mènent Charleville-Mézières à une victoire contre Hainaut Basket (83-72). Pour Hainaut Astou Traoré (24 points, 11 rebonds) et Emilie Gomis (20 points) font tout pour contrer leurs adversaires.

Iva Sliskovic est présente marquant 23 points (4 interceptions) pour que Angers réclame une victoire à Cavigal Nice après avoir été battu en match aller de la journée 4. 

Dans la saison régulière en LFB, il reste neuf matchs à disputer. Si les Niss'Angels ne veulent pas être reléguées, elles doivent monter les bretelles et gagner quelques rencontres.
