Pauline Akonga-N'Simbo's smile at her team's Open LFB victory against Basket Landes said it all. She was happy and all the hard work by the coach and players paid off.

Arras beat Basket Landes (77-52) with Akonga-N'Simbo scoring 36 points and picking up 11 rebounds and drawing 11 fouls.

The first few minutes of the game was lively with Basket Landes having the better start (7-4). However Pauline Akonga-N'Simbo and Bineta Diouf had a little clash that resulted in a couple of long discussions with the officials.

With Akonga fired up and Joyce Cousseins-Smith and Gabriela Marginean working well Arras dominated the rest of the first quarter (22-13).

Collectively the players from Arras gave Jennifer Humphrey, the only player from Basket Landes who played well, a hard time.

Yet Marion Laborde and Camille Aubert gave Basket Landes some hope for recovery early in the second quarter with 4 quick points. But then nothing much happened and Arras regained the upper hand.

Compared to Basket Landes, Arras resembled a well oiled machine. This was shown after Adja Konteh picked up her 4th foul and Juliana Maloudama was called into action.

On Mialoundama's very first reception of the ball, she gave the impression she was going to shoot but then recycled the ball. Four passes later the ball was back in her hand and she kicked the ball back to Cousseins-Smith who nailed a tree-pointer (39-29).

After the break Arras dominated Basket Landes completely by alternating their inside with excellent perimeter play with Akonga-N'Simbo, Nadezdha Grishaeva, Cousseins-Smith and Alexandra Tchangoué all in sync.

Arras slowly stretched their advantage (47-35) after 25 minutes and (58-45) by the end of the quarter. Krissy Badé's coast to coast closing the quarter sent the supporting fans wild.

Apart from Humphrey, Basket Landes fell apart in the final quarter allowing Arras to stroll to victory (77-52).
