Betclic Elite: end of series for Victor Wembanyama and Boulogne-Levallois, heavily beaten in Roanne



MVP of the month of November, the native of Chesnay (2.21m, 18 years old) was well contained by the men of Jean-Denys Choulet (15 points, 7 of 14 shooting, 6 rebounds, 3 blocks). The experienced coach of the Chorale frustrated the opposing star, deprived of balls and quickly penalized with three faults in the first half. The third, an unsportsmanlike on Arthur Bruyas to cut off a Roanne counter-attack, allowed the Roannes to take off before the break (48-34, 17th) despite the efforts of Tremont Waters (15 points).

Boulogne-Levallois doubled by Monaco before the shock of Sunday

Taken by the throat at the entrance in front of a full André-Vacheresse hall, Vincent Collet’s Metros suffered the success in shooting from Kyle Foster (22 points), Ronald March (17 points, 5 assists) and the undermining work of the two poisons from the Choir: Stefan Moody and Silvio de Sousa. The small American leader (1.78m, 29 years old) delivered his most successful copy of the season with 16 points, 9 assists, 4 interceptions and a spectacular counter on Anzejs Pasecniks (2.16m), the new pivot of the Metropolitans.

A former promising prospect from the University of Kansas, De Souza (13 points, 11 rebounds) made his physical impact speak against Wembanyama, both to cut him off from his partners and to dominate the rebound battle, largely to the advantage of the Choir (27-12 at the break, 44-37 in the end). In a rare thinning in the Ile-de-France, “Wemby” brought his team back to three points thanks to an award-winning basket on the head of Yannis Morin (56-53, 24th). But the players of Jean-Denys Choulet immediately responded with a 10-0 concluded by Maxime Roos, three points against Wembanyama before creating the gap in a euphoric end to the match.

Boulogne-Levallois gives up its first place in the standings to Monaco, winner of Asvel on Tuesday evening in the advanced shock of the 14th day (97-78). Collet and his players will have the opportunity to take back their property on Sunday, by receiving the Roca Team at the Marcel-Cerdan sports hall (7 p.m.). Already winner of Cholet on Saturday (98-72), Roanne continues and goes back to 11th place.
