Roche Vendeé NF1 basketball season is going well. They are the only club with a perfect record.
They had a tricky task in the derby match against Rennes and came away with the victory (83-78).
Jennifer Galand was the hot hand for the leaders with her 26 points, while Maud Médénou led the scoring with 17 points for Rennes.
With the SIG men (Pro A) playing at home, a derby between the two teams from Strasbourg at the same time was not what either team wanted.
However it was not possible to find a suitable time that was convenient for both sides. So the match was played at the standard time.
Strasbourg ABC won the contest against Illkirch-Graffendstaden (79-65) with Djéné Diawara leading the way with 25 points and 21 rebounds.
Armentières ended their negative series against local rival Dunkerque by winning comfortably (73-53). Virginie Bremont led the scoring with 18 points.
With this victory Armentières joins Strasbourg ABC with 6 wins and 2 losses.
