Despite an outrageously dominated first quarter, the Dijon team let Fos-sur-Mer get back into the game. The Dijon basketball players still recorded their third consecutive victory in eight days this Tuesday, October 26 (84-72). Back in photos of the match.
25 points scored and especially only 7 conceded, the JDA Dijon started this match very strongly, on its floor at the Palais des sports this Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Except that the following ten minutes put the Dijon basketball players in the hard.
Having conceded an 8-0 to resume, mainly because of two long-distance shots from Zachery Peacock, Nenad Markovic’s players suffered, struggling to control the penetrations of Kevin McClain in particular.
Admittedly, the Dijon basketball players were never led to the score but their opponents from Fos-sur-Mer gave them a hard time until the last five minutes of the match.
Dijon side, Gavin Ware has weighed and counted a lot in the racket. 28 points at 12/13 on shots and 10 rebounds are the mark of a very good double-double in this victory. Despite a small fright in the fourth quarter following a blow to the shoulder on an opposing screen, David Holston (16 points, 9 assists) was also not far from the double-double, he who s’ is presented from the start of the match as a maestro as we know him.
The performance of JDA Dijon is not perfect. It must also be said that the first quarter was perhaps too strong to be able to continue at the same pace.
That said, Nenad Markovic’s team comes out of three games in eight days with three wins, including two consecutive Betclic Elite which allows JDA Dijon to post a positive record (3 wins – 2 losses) for the first time in the season in the league (5th place in the standings). This by having to compose without Joshiko Saibou, Chase Simon and Charles Galliou (injured against Roanne last Friday).
JDA Dijon will not be able to breathe too much since its trip to the floor of Boulogne-Levallois (4v-1d) is scheduled this Friday, October 29.
