Bourg-en-Bresse reacts, Le Portel grabs in Elite


The Bressans beat Le Mans this Saturday (80-64) while Le Portel won against Limoges (76-73).

Bourg-en-Bresse won a convincing victory at Le Mans (80-64) after its home defeat against Asvel (80-74) in the fight for fourth place in Elite basketball during the 14th day, at the outcome of which Le Portel, winner in Limoges (76-73), established himself a little more among the eight qualified.

The Bressans (nine successes for five defeats) of Zaccharie Risacher (11 pts and 4 rebounds) did not produce a perfect copy, since they lost the trifle of 21 balls, but sufficient against the MSB in doubt (third setback in a row) and who only scored 10 points in the last quarter.

In the fight for fourth place, which offers home advantage in the quarter-finals, they take a victory ahead of Nancy, beaten by Strasbourg (88-78) and Quinton Hooker (21 pts, 4 rebounds and 6 ists decisive) in the “Eastern derby”.

The Lorraines are joined by Nanterre and Le Portel (8/6), who both won.

The first at home after a controlled match against Chalon-sur-Saône (83-72), the second at Beaublanc after being 15 points behind (37-50, 25th) and after a final panting.

Bastien Vautier (19 points and 7 rebounds for 25 rating) gave the Portelois a three-point lead 30 seconds from the buzzer before they were solid on the penalty line. Limoges is still in the relegation zone on which Dijon took two victories after its victory at Roanne (105-92), direct competitor, thanks in particular to 33 points from David Holston.
