Quimper disappoints, Aurore Vitré tames the URB, CEP Lorient takes the big hit

by admin

Pro B and NM1 based Breton Basketball clubs were on deck on Tuesday night. If UJAP Quimper fell against La Rochelle (78-63), Aurore Vitré for his part created an upset by dominating URB (95-89).

Quimper’s poor performance

On Tuesday, Rams Kemper moved onto the parquet floor of La Rochelle during day 11 of the Pro B Championship, an opponent theoretically within reach for the Brits since New Aquitens finished penultimate in the tournament with just two victories. But Digué Diawara’s teammates fell into a trap. While they had a fairly balanced start to the game, they fell apart after half-time, and had very serious attacking difficulties.

Archie dominated on rebounds (28-for-45), and Laurent Fuerst’s men finally lost (78-63) despite Yvan Vranis’ good performance. With a negative balance of six defeats to five wins, UJAP Quimper is 11th in Pro B. Finisterians will host Châlons-Reims (7th) on Friday with ambition going forward.

Aurore Vitré URB surprises

In NM1, URB faced Aurore Vitré in the Bretillien derby at the summit. Against all odds, the Greens, who lost in the first leg (90-80) against Rennes, avenged themselves by putting in a perfect performance (95-89). From the start of the meeting, Veterin imposed his style of play with great rhythm, while Sebastien Kepp’s partners lacked precision.

Trailing by fourteen points at the start of the second quarter (31-17, 12), Pascal Thibaud’s players could not catch up. On the contrary, the locals were able to advance perfectly thanks to the excellent Vincent Vandelet (19 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals). With this surprising success, Aurore Vitré climbed to fifth place in the championship and is only three points behind URB, who are still the leader of NM1.

Lorient capsizes on the seashore

Finally, CEP Lorient was across from Loon Plage, second from NM1. Despite the gap in the pecking order, Morbihannais looked down on their opponents by offering a very big face-off. More adept at shooting than the northerners, Llorente (25-22, 10) quickly took advantage before extending their lead (48-35, 20).

Then they continued their demonstration in the third quarter to confront the rebellion of the people. A wake-up call too late hoping to jeopardize the Cépistes who thus took a very big hit (88-73) by winning the third success in a row. They are now sixth in the Championship and will face Aurore Vitré on January 7 in the Breton Derby among the direct contenders for the top of the table.
