2011-2012 Ligue Féminine de Basketball
Saint-Amand Hainaut Basket
SAHB - roster 2011-2012


Jean-Pierre Boulanger took his time in building his Ligue Féminine de Basketball team for 2011-12.

With the exception of Laëtitia Kamba (whom the club would have liked to stay), all the players except Clémence Beikes and Emilie Silbande-Petiteau were given permission to find other teams at the end of the season.

Union Hainaut has gone. The club's official name is Saint-Amand Hainaut Basket. Their first season in the LFB in 2010-2011 turned out to be more difficult than expected.

Steffi Sorensen had left after two months while Jasmon Covington missed a big part of the season with injury. Alison Bales who was the tallest player in the LFB had never settled and was not the expected offensive threat. In addition Emilie Duvivier had an injury prone season and failed to find the form that had got her into the French team in 2009.

All these players are not returning. Furthermore Lindsay Winston and Amanda Jackson who played for the club on short term contracts during last season were also not invited back despite some good performances.

Noémie Lemaire decided to drop down two divisons and play at Le Poiré-sur-Vie in NF1.

Clémence Beikes  ©  womensbasketball-in-france.com The young players of Union Hainaut, Céline Girard and Elsa Martins, could not - despite the high turnover of players - break into the first team and moved to Léon Trégor Basket 29.

French international Clémence Beikes (in picture) and Emilie Silbande-Petiteau are the only players coming back.

Laëtitia Kamba who was the club's player of the year decided to move to USO Mondeville as her contract had come to an end.

With Challes-les-Eaux giving up its place in the EuroCup Women competition, the FFBB offered the place to SAHB.

This left the coach Corinne Benintendi a big challenge in building a new roster. Initially it would have been Stefanie Murphy joining the club. But since then things changed and Murphy is not joining the club.

However the following international players are confirmed for this season:

Lithuanian international Marina Solopova, Croatian Petra Stampalija and the Americans Amisha Carter and Ashley Houts.

The three new French players are:

Tracy Albicy (Roche Vendée - LF2), Marie-Frédérique Aiyssi (SO Armentières - LF2) and Carine Paul (Villeneuve d'Ascq - LFB)

The nine-player LFB roster for 2011-2012 is:

Ashley Houts, Amisha Carter, Tracy Albicy, Carine Paul, Clémence Beikes, Emilie Silbande-Petiteau, Petra Stampalija, Marie-Frédérique Aiyssi and Marina Solopova.
