Charleville-Mézières are getting closer to leaving NF1 basketball
The NF1 basketball schedule for Charleville-Mézières
had to be changed due to their Coupe de France exploits.
They had to bring their home game with Nice BC 06 forward because there are no free weekends left in the regular season calendar.
Charleville-Mézières face Bourges Basket on Sunday, 18 April 2010 in the semi-final of the French Cup.
Charleville-Mézières did not waste much time in getting going. Amel Bouderra (left) scored with her first shot of the game with less than six seconds on the game clock.
For Nice nothing was going right offensively and they trailed (4-14) after five minutes. By the end of the first quarter they were 18 points behind (12-30).
Nice picked up and had the better of the second and third quarter to go into the final quarter trailing (55-63).
Djéné Diawara (23 points and 21 rebounds) from Charleville went to work at both ends of the court during the final quarter.
With the assistance of Carine Contessi (17 points) and Bouderra (7 assists) they outscored their guests 24-9 to win the game (87-64).
Sarra Ouergh was the the other player in double digits for Charleville-Mézières with 20 points.
For Nice BC 06 Emilie Silbande-Petiteau led the way with 25 points.
UHB-SA who have two defeats more than Charleville-Mézières are the only team that can stop them from winning the title.
If Charleville-Mézières win one of their last three games then the promotion to the Ligue Féminine de Basketball will be secured.
