Stat sheet in hand The coach was far from ostentatious, preferring to be careful, confident that the Mets, the best attack of the tournament, 3e of the regular season after monopolizing the first move, seven months out of eight, they “would have revolted,” and that regular season top player, Will Cummings, would not renew the match at 3 out of 14 shooting, at the same title of the Mets as a whole, except for Hornsby ( 4 of 8) which was completely loosened behind a three-point arc (3 of 19 for the rest of the team).

Basketball / Playoffs: Elan Béarnais takes the lead

Baloa, who holds collegiate strength and the elusive Justin Bibbins, won the first round of the playoffs quarter-finals. Success of 77-94 in Boulogne-Levallois they hope to validate on Saturday 3:15 p.m. at the Palais des Sports

“We have to remain very vigilant,” suggested Particki who knows well the face of Altosequanais, who also controlled the rebound (41 to 35 for Elan who was stuffed with 11 offensive shots) and kneaded profusely by Hamady Ndiaye who delivered a save performance for six different players in 21 minutes. Only, it will not be the same in the second leg. We don’t play 34 regular season games to drop the case at the first disappointment.

‘It shouldn’t change anything’

At Pau, in a palace where Thursday morning rehearsals end with a one-on-one challenge between Landing Sunny and Gregor Hrovat in front of merry partners, cell phones attached to the camera, Eric Bartschke did not change his approach to the game; Vigilance in the cleat.

“It will be a different match because they’re back at the wall,” warns Landing Sane, respecting his coach’s mantra. They will be more aggressive but that shouldn’t change anything for us. We will treat this match as if it were 0-0.

If he doesn’t knock it on his men, Partiske knows all too well that all four candidates caught up in the first leg of their home game, a first in qualifying history, are able to set things right. hour. A scenario Palois went through in 2017 when Elan de Bartecheky, 5e, evidently won the first match of the quarter-finals in Strasbourg (92-102) before being sharply cornered on a return to Pau (68-83) and ousted in Alsace during a beautiful period. GIS trainer? Vincent Colette. “On paper we are in a lower position than Welsh and Monaco who have more arguments to reverse the trend,” he tries to placate the man who has since been off the Mets bench.

‘There is no margin,’ recognizes Collet

To hear from the national coach, the roadmap for imagining his team pushing Elan into a beautiful Monday evening at Levallois, is key: “It’s up to us to annoy them even more. We’ll have to prevent Pau from playing his game, that’s the difficulty. On the way out, obviously we haven’t We manage to put the intensity, by no means, below what we have done throughout the regular season,” he said wistfully. “It is desire and desire that will be the raw data. The bottom line has to be set. We have to find solutions, but we don’t have a margin,” cries coach of the year, forced to pull as much of his five specialty rope as possible, 162 minutes of presence out of 200 possible, to fill The blanks left by the absence of genes and Michenau and the failure of the appearance of Michalak (0/7). The fact that the Béarnais and their extended seats with the sudden return of the Dominque Archie, they will have to exploit over time.

Elan is certainly well positioned to make it to his first four matches since 2006 with the prospect of challenging the winner Monaco-Strasbourg, but the road to getting there is still quite steep.

“I hope that after Wednesday’s result we will have a well-appointed room to push us,” Eric Barczykky finally predicted. On this sunny weekend and this long holiday, the trend coming from the ticket office was unfortunately not going in that direction.
