The new year did not start well for Bourges with the confirmation that Frida Eldebrink' s season was over.

To make matters worse during the month Nwal-Endéné Miyem had to miss games with an ankle injury and Cathy Joens' season also came to an abrupt end with a foot injury.

However all was not lost for Bourges as "Caps" Dumerc raised her game with some solid performances and deadly shooting beyond the arc.

Bourges won all three domestic games and are currently alone in second place, one game behind the leaders Lattes Montpellier.

Bourges Basket also punched their ticket for the EuroLeague Women play-off with 2 wins from the 3 games played this year.

Céline Dumerc has also been busy collecting awards. She won the 2012 Radio France Sports Person of the year award, a first time for a woman to receive this award which proves that our readers agree by voting her as the LFB player of the month for January.

She also collected the prestigious La Gazzetta dello Sport Female European Basketball player of the year award for 2012.

Now the readers of womensbasketball-in-france.com have chosen her as the LFB player of the month for January.
