Arras and Cavigal Nice failed in their attempts to leave the relegation zone and finished in 13th and 14th place respectively. Although they have lost their LFB status on the basketball court, they may still avoid relegation to LF2.

All the clubs must pass financial control and a FFBB check (including those clubs fighting for promotion) before an official statement is released in which division clubs are allowed to play the following season.

Tango Bourges Basket Regular season champions 2013-2014

Despite losing to Basket Landes in round 25 just before the EuroLeague Women Final 8, Tango Bourges Basket finished the season with just one domestic defeat from their last 16 matches to finish three games clear at the top. The Tango players wrapped up the regular season by beating Nantes Rezé (49-44).

Basket Landes have been on fire domestically. With Danielle Page and Valériane Ayayi (both players were best foreign player of the year and best young player of the year respectively while Céline Dumerc was the French player of the year for the Tango) sharing 25 points per game for the season they have finally cracked the top 4 for the first time in their history.

The two players hit crucial free throws in the closing seconds for Basket Landes to record an important road victory against Lattes-Montpellier (78-75) and clinch second place. The two teams will play off against each other for a place in the championship final.

Since the elimination from the EuroCup Women Villeneuve d'Ascq's performance in the LFB has been shaky. They dropped from second to fourth place. But at least they end the regular season with a victory at home against Cavigal Nice (67-42).

Astrou Traore

The four places for the challenge round had already been confirmed before the last round of games. Lyon BF who finished fifth rolled over 7th place Charleville-Mézières (88-63) while 8th place Toulouse lost at home to Tarbes (75-81).

Nantes Rezé, despite losing to Bourges, finished the season in 6th place to complete the LFB challenge round format.

Astou Traoré (in picture) finished her season with 32 points and 15 rebounds to help Hainaut Basket edge out USO Mondeville (81-78). Whereas Angers' roller coaster season ended in defeat against Arras (69-76).

Although Hainaut Basket, Angers, Tarbes and USO Mondeville escaped finishing in the relegation zone, they missed out on an end-of-season play-off spot.

On the right margin you can find the results for the rounds 23, 24 and 25 while the final round results from week 26 for the 2013-2014 season are:

Hainaut Basket 81-78 USO Mondeville
