SIG having a NF1 basketball hic-cup

After 22 rounds of NF1 basketball, the play-off picture is still very unclear with a total of 11 teams in the hunt for qualification.

Illkirch-Graffenstaden, the surprise team of last season, are finding the going harder this season. They have dropped their third game in a row this weekend by losing at home to Reims BF at home (79-91).

As a result the SIG drop down to fifth place and are now one game behind the teams in third and fourth place.

The SIG had the better of the first half and led (48-42) at the break.

 Jenny Fouasseau  © LFB  They managed to keep Manon Sinico quiet for most of the game. But they failed to pay attention to Jenny Fouasseau (In picture - 16 points) who brought the teams level with a trey (62-62) after 28 minutes of play.

She then put the guests in front briefly before Floriane Herrscher and Zuzana Gujaraidze (18 points) put the game firmly in the hands of Reims (68-64) going into the final quarter.

However the SIG fought back in the final quarter and the teams were level (74-74) with five minutes to play.

The SIG started to miss their shots while Reims went on a 10-0 run.

The SIG still had 90 seconds to save the game. With Charline Savage hitting a trey, the home fans kept on hoping.

Unfortunately a few seconds later Savage picked up a technical foul. Herrscher (22 points and 10 rebounds) hit the resulting free-throws and the chance of the hosts to come back was gone.

The rest of the points came from the free-throw line. Fatou Dieng had a lively game for Reims with 23 points and 7 rebounds.

Darline N'Soki with 13 points and 15 rebounds was the best player from the SIG while Lina Brazdeïkyte led the team with 19 points.
