Bourges loses control of the Women’s League
Villeneuve-d’Ascq had already brought down the champion of France Bourges twice this season, at the Palacium. On Saturday, the ESBVA did it again, but this time it was at the Prado. The Northerners won (82-72) by passing 49 points in the second half to the Berruyère defense.
A basket from Kennedy Burke (14 points, 7 rebounds) allowed them to take the lead for good three minutes from the end, before widening a definitive gap and ending a series of eight straight victories for the Tangos in Women’s League.
Before traveling to Turkey in Mersin to play the first match of the Euroleague quarter-final series on Tuesday March 14, it is a bad approach for Endy Miyem’s teammates (5 points in 18 minutes), who was back after a two-month hiatus.
Basket Landes surprised by Angers (75-71)
Villeneuve-d’Ascq solidifies its position in the top 4 ahead of Sunday’s Lattes-Montpellier game against Charleville as Bourges loses its top spot in the Women’s League standings as Asvel won for the seventh time in a row , the thirteenth in all competitions, but not without difficulty against Tarbes on a small score (56-54) with a basket from Alexia Chartereau to take shelter nine seconds from the end.
Basket Landes suffered a setback after four wins in five matches. Marine Fauthoux’s teammates (25 points) were surprised at home by Angers (75-71) despite a final rush to make up for a big delay (60-47 for Angers after 30 minutes). Saint-Amand inflicted a fourteenth defeat in a row in Toulouse (61-54) while Roche Vendée, who had not won for five games, did not give details to Landerneau (96-60).
