Veuillez trouver en bas du page un résumé en français du match Basket Landes contre Tarbes.

Basket Landes' second-quarter effort gave them the match

Tarbes had the best start possible with a (15-2) run at the start of the game. However they failed in blowing away Basket Landes despite leading (21-12).

In a match that neither team defended well, Basket Landes turned things around in the second quarter with the exuberance of Valériane Ayayi and a 10-0 run to go into the locker room ahead (39-32).

Both sides continued to play yo-yo all through the third quarter. Tarbes had the first run and reduced their deficit to a single point (41-42) halfway through the quarter.

Then Basket Landes picked themselves up with Kamila Stepanova, beforehand invisible offensively, throwing her weight around to finish the quarter leading (54-47).

The final quarter turned into a real derby match. Yet it showed how much more Basket Landes wanted to win the match.

Tamara Abalde had nowhere to go but managed to force some space and delivered a tear-drop lay-up to score and get the foul.

This is only the second victory of Basket Landes in an Open LFB.

Quoique l'équipe de Tarbes démarre avec une bonne allure pour mener (21-12) au premier quart avec une Paoline Salagnac inscrivant 8 points d'affilés, c'est Anaïs le Gluher Cano qui permet aux Landaises de revenir.

Sabrina Reghaissïa, secondée par les jeunes de Basket Landes, Olivia Epoupa et Valériane Ayayi permet à son équipe de revenir.

Tarbes perd ses moyens et son adversaire prend le dessus en prenant un avantage à la mi-temps (39-32).

Au troisième quart, les deux formations s'équivalent avec Basket Landes restant devant. Quant au dernier quart, c'est grace à Gabriella Ocete et Salagnac que Tarbes grignote à son déficit mais finalement ce sont les Landaises qui s'y imposent (68-64).
