2011-2012 Ligue Féminine de Basketball
Pays d'Aix Basket 13
PAB 13


Aix-en-Provence have had a hard time in the Ligue Féminine de Basketball since 2008-2009 as the club dropped from title challengers to LFB survivors.

Des informations en français sur PAB 13 se trouvent en bas du page.

In 2009 seven new players and Emmanuel Coeuret joined the club. Aix finished in 11th place.

Last season six new players joined the LFB roster but the club finished in 12th place.

Emmanuel Coeuret remains as head coach and is reunited with Damien Leroux as his assistant. The President Guy Boillon's fascinations with Australians continues as the club signed Australian international Elyse Penaluna. However Penaluna is not able to honour her first professional contract outside Australia as she injured herself during the final quarter of the SEABL championship game in Australia while playing for Dandenong.

Despite not finishing she top scored for her side with 19 points and 11 rebounds as Dandenong beat Knox (65-57).

As a result of tearing her ACL Aix-en-Provence has signed Latvian international Liene Jansone as a medical replacement.

The other new signings are Kelly Corre (Pleyber-Christ - LF2), Sylvie Gruszczynski (COB Calais - LFB) and N'Diaye N'Deye (COB Calais - LFB). Corre played under Coeuret during her youth career at USO Mondeville.

N'Deye joins the team after AfroBasket. Her signing came after Sabrina Réghaïssia decided to take a break from playing basketball.

The other players to leave are:

Carren Gay (Toulouse Métropole - LF2), Zoi Dimitrakou (Charleville-Mézières - LFB), Lauren Neaves (Tarbes - LFB), Isabelle Strunc (Perpignan - LF2), Margaux Okou-Zouzouo, Anaïs Viale (Colomiers - NF1) and Hollie Grima.

Styliani Kaltsidouans and Hollie Grima  ©  womensbasketball-in-france.com Hollie Grima (in picture wearing green) had played out her contract last season despite having time off for an operation around Christmas after an early cancer discovery.

Grima had decided to put on hold her international career but continues to play basketball in Australia.

She announced recently "The surgery revealed that some of the cells had turned cancerous but a six-month check earlier this month produced more encouraging news.

"From what they could see, everything looked OK, although it could always come back."

Grima had played 274 senior games for Australia. She was a member of the 2006 World Championship team and also won bronze in 2002 and a silver medal at the 2008 Olympic Games.

The LFB roster for 2011-2012 is:

Nathalie Hurst, Claire Tomaszeski, Emmanuelle Gorjeu, Cindy Lima, Tamara Albade, Liene Jansone, Sylvie Gruszczynski, Kelly Corre, N'Diaye N'Deye and Manon Cuomo.


L'effectif de Aix-en-Provence

Depuis 2009-2010 Emmanuel Cœuret est le coach de PAB 13 en ligue féminine de basketball. Quoique les résultats des dernières saisons n'étaient pas très encourageants et le club a juste échappé de finir dans le groupe de relégation, Cœuret reprend à nouveau la formation du club avec une touche espagnole cette fois-ci.

Les nouvelles joueuses sont:

Kelly Corre  ©  womensbasketball-in-france.com les deux Espagnoles Olympiennes Cindy Lima et Tamara Abalde, l'internationale de Latvia Liene Jansone - qui est pigiste pour l'Australienne Elyse Penaluna (déchirure des ligaments croisés au genou), et Kelly Corre (Pleyber-Christ - LF2), Sylvie Gruszczynski (COB Calais - LFB) et N'Diaye N'Deye (COB Calais - LFB).

Corre (dans l'image à gauche) a été formée par Cœuret à USO Mondeville et pendant cette été a bien joué en Championnat d'Espoirs des moins 20 dans l'équipe de France.
