Limoges is the place to be in for NF1 Basketball

Limoges lost in the opening day of the NF1 basketball season but have not been beaten since. They won their 10th consecutive game (73-71) against Toulouse.

Meanwhile Armentières moved into second place after a comfortable victory against Roche Vendée (82-52).

Illkirch-Graffenstaden move into fourth place after holding off Nice (76-73).

In the week that Sylvia Fowls dunked in the EuroLeague the shot of the week in France came in a NF1 basketball game between the players of Pleyber-Christ and the CFBB.

Margaux Okou Zouzou   © womensbasketball-in-france.comMargaux Okou Zouzou (left) from the CFBB was allowed to move to the top of the arc as if she was in practise.

Then she fired a shot that went straight into the basket without touching the rim.

The CFBB, playing with 10 players, ended up beating Pleyber-Christ (65-63).

Elsewhere Charleville-Mézières had to wait until the third period before putting away Dunkerque (80-61), while US Laveyron fell to Strasbourg ABC (68-71).

Ifs beat Voiron (90-72) in a bad tempered game.

Three players from the Voiron starting five fouled out. In total four players from Voiron and one player from Ifs fouled out in the game.

It is not often we mention England Basketball but when two ex-players from Rhonnda Rebels come face to face, it is worth a mention.

Rosalee Mason was playing a week ago in England with the Sheffield Hatters and joined Colomiers as a replacement for Irena Spirkova.

Nadja Morgan who also played for Rhonnda ended up the winner of the contest as Rennes won in overtime (80-77) with Morgan scoring 29 points.
