Basketball (National 2). A perilous trip for Garonne AB

There are no longer any easy matches, starting with this trip to Niort. “It’s not at all the same team as for the first leg, they recruited Fabien Bondron who arrives from National 1 and their American Ronald Bell. It’s a great team that plays basketball very well with a high physical density and a lot of aggressiveness, ”warns the Garonne technician. And these two are worth 25 points on average since they arrived.

Sequel still absent

The GAB had beaten Niort by 21 points in the first leg (88-67), but this time seems a long way off. Especially since Niort has just beaten the Landes leader ESMS last Saturday and in a good way (89-77) thanks to a high level Fabien Bondron, even though their captain Jean-Baptiste Macé is injured in the ankle until the end of the month. In short, the GAB will go to a team in full confidence which has just chained 4 victories in its last 5 games.

The team does not let go so far. “We have a very specific game plan. With a lot of desire and enthusiasm, we can achieve a result, even if we have to do without Grégory Séquélé, who is always in trouble with his knee. It is certain that on a good day, the GAB has the means to win in Niort. But he will have to stay focused on the instructions and above all hold his duels because the physical challenge will be important. The Garonnais will have to find collective resources of solidarity and mutual aid to counter Niortais who have gained in density since their last meeting.
