The LFB story of round 8

Ligue  Féminine de Basketball Logo

Bourges and Valencinnes extended their advantage at the top of the LFB table with victories against Arras (105-70) and Challes-les-Eaux (73-67). Céline Dumerc for Bourges was back to her best as she scored 18 points, dished out 8 assists and made 5 steals, while Belinda Snell finished with 5-of-7 from beyond the arc. Sheana Mosch and Carla Thomas finished with 23 points apiece for Arras but this was insufficient to trouble their guests.

USVO, not for the first time this season, just did enough to hold off the challenge of Challes-les-Eaux. The loss of Nicole Ohlde for five fouls, USVO’s best player, was a concern especially as Jessica Davenport for Challes was having another big game and finished with a double-double 28 points and 10 rebounds. Next week USVO will travel to Bourges for the battle of the undefeated.

With Reims beating Villeneuve (75-72) and St Amand taking down Clermont-Ferrand (73-50), Challes-les-Eaux hold on to third place.

Montpellier got back to winning ways with an emphatic victory (92-75) against Mondeville. Sandra Dijon from Montpellier had a field day and hit 28 points, Gunta Basko and Grace Daley scored 23 and 21 points. Jennifer Digby was the big hitter for Mondeville with 21 points which included 3-of-5 from the land of many.

Calais did enough at home to beat Mourenx (86-74). A defeat that leaves Mourenx alone on the bottom of the LFB table. Tarbes ended their five-game losing streak in beating Aix-en-Provence (67-56).
