End of the match of madness on Saturday evening, between Cholet and Paris, during the 4th day of Betclic Élite. The Parisians won their first victory of the season (85-83) at Cholet, thanks to a three-point basket scored by Kyle Allman a few tenths from the final buzzer. The promoted Parisian thus won the first success in his history in the elite.
The Parisians were behind by two points with 24 seconds remaining. After a time out from Jean-Christophe Prat, the players from Paris returned to the floor and went to the end of possession. At the last moment, Kyle Allman, author of a fantastic match (29 points), a three-point shoot.
The Parisian camp exulted before … sitting down. Because the referees have requested video refereeing, to check if there were not a few seconds left to play. After a moment of hesitation, the referees returned the ball to CB, but with less than a second on the clock, the Choletais had no time to find a shooting position.
For their part, the Choletais may have regrets. They initially started the game very badly, surprised by the press zone set up by Paris, and were thus led 29-16 after ten minutes. They regained the advantage in the third quarter (54-51). They were able to adapt their defense to block Dustin Sleva (13 points), also very prominent on Saturday night, but forgot Kyle Allman in the last moments. Cholet concedes his second home loss of the season.
