In an undecided match from start to finish, Boulogne-Levallois ended up getting the better of Nanterre (73-67) in the Hauts-de-Seine derby, counting for the 8th day of Jeep Elite.
Boulogne-Levallois did not allow itself to be vague-à-soul. Remaining on a defeat at home against Bourg-en-Bresse, the Metropolitans were keen to start again in the derby against Nanterre. After three wins in a row, Pascal Donnadieu’s players were patient at the start of the match before placing a big boost at the end of the first quarter.
A 17-2 allowed the Nanterriens to count up to eleven points in advance, the biggest gap in the match. However, the teammates of Assem Marei (17 points, 11 rebounds), who extended his time at the Metropolitans to compensate for the injury absence of Vitalis Chikoko, have recovered.

Returned to the score four times in this second quarter, the “Mets” approached the second half of the match with a disbursement of three lengths. This delay, the players of Jurij Zdovc were quick to erase it upon returning to the floor of the Palais des Sports Marcel-Cerdan. A pivotal moment in this meeting because this 16-2 in just over five minutes launched Boulogne-Levallois towards victory in this meeting.
The Metropolitans were never able to go beyond a margin of nine lengths. The duo of Isaia Cordinier (14 points, 6 rebounds) and Chris Warren (14 points) allowed Nanterre to stay afloat and start the last ten minutes with only two points behind.
