When they returned from the locker room, a crossover took place (40-38, 25th) then gradually, the locals broke away following an offensive rebound from Romain Catarino and a three-pointer from Mathieu Molinié (53-47, 30th). The AC2B held the meeting but the Villeneuvois did not let go and remained with two possessions at the start of the money time. The pragmatic Agen suburbanites, mastering the opposing offensives, found in Rémy Demont the serial killer who was going to tip the scales definitively. The latter, confident since the start of the season, despite a good defense on the man, sent two missiles that hit the bull’s eye.

The AC2B continues its good run, the guys are playing with confidence and the group is showing perfect control which should keep them at the top of the rankings. VBC side it is difficult to manage the game, the lack of consistency is obvious.

Benoît Derusseau (coach of the AC2B): “Each team had its half-time. They defend well, hinder us on shots, dominate the inside of the racket. Despite this, we are ahead at the halfway mark. In the second period, we regained our skill and confidence allowed us to play more liberated afterwards. We are good morally. »

Léo Sansot (VBC coach): “In the first half, we were dominant in several areas of play and unfortunately we were trailing by one point. Morally it was hard despite a good defense. Our adversary hurt us very badly with his successes at long distance. They are playing with confidence in us, we are not calm. We lack confidence in our away games. »
