Bourg-en-Bresse Consolidates Top 4 Spot with Convincing Victory Over Blois

A good mark before a prestigious final. Like Paris triumphant on Saturday against Le Mans (55-88), the Eurocup finalist, Bourg-en-Bresse, was full of confidence during this 28th day of Betclic Elite. Thus consolidating its place in the top 4 of the Championship, thanks to its logical success against Blois this Sunday (81-66), stuck at the bottom of the ranking (17th, with only 4 victories this season), but struggling until the last quarter .

Unsurprisingly, the JL quickly took the lead (14-3, 7th then 35-25, 15th), led by JeQuan Lewis (11 points) and EJ Rowland (15 points and 5 rebounds). Brice Dessert’s Blois (18 points and 6 rebounds), lacking skill (1/9 at 3 points at half-time, 3/20 in total), managed to stay about ten lengths behind Bourg for a while -en-Bresse (45-32, 20th) in the first period, before experiencing a drop in performance after returning from the locker room. The locals accelerated to open up a comfortable gap (56-36, 24th), but were less incisive when the Blésois defended better, at the end of the third quarter (60-55, 29th).

Unlike Monaco two hours earlier, who fell for the first time this season at home against Nancy (86-100), the Burgiens, carried by Bryce Brown (14 points) and Axel Julien (6 points), but dominated on rebound (33 catches against 46), did not flinch in the last ten minutes to achieve their 20th success in the Championship.

Freddy Fauthoux’s men, extended this week until 2027, therefore have almost one day less rest, before the first match of this Franco-French final, Tuesday, at the Adidas Arena.
