Les promues s'accrochent
mais en vain

Géraldine Robert

Les Niss' Angels se sont presque envolées mais la MVP du match Robert et ses co-équipières Sacko et Skrela ont assuré la victoire pour Montpellier (66-57).

Avec Diallo et Senghor-Sy, Nice a pu réduire l'écart à 13 points avant entamer le dernier quart.

Pendant les dix dernières minutes, les Niçoises étaient dangereuses avec Sharp au tir prime, Paget et encore avec une Diallo et une Senghor-Sy explosives. Mais l'adresse de Skrela (11 points dans le dernier quart) a évité une défaite pour son équipe.
