> The essential
For its last meeting before the break, the TBC visited La Rochelle which had won the first leg (76-83). Without pressure on his shoulders, he is able to take his revenge. But the Rochelais are solid at home.
> Between satisfaction and questioning
The president of the TBC, Philippe Laperche, is satisfied with the start of the season for his team: “We are quite happy with the season, we always want a little more and without injuries and suspensions in Cergy, we succeed in having one or two more victories. After two failures, the victory over Rennes last Friday was also good for the group. “
He admits that he is not thinking for the moment of hiring a joker to replace Frank Yangué, a doctor with a fairly injured shoulder: This is not on the agenda. Maintenance is on the right track. Now is not the time to spend money, especially as the players in the group called on to play a little more in Frank’s absence are giving complete satisfaction. “
On the other hand, he is more worried by the promised demolition of the now historic Toulouse basketball hall: “The most boring at the moment is the uncertainty about the future with regard to the small sports hall. I don’t know what’s going on. We haven’t been invited to any meeting. I find that it lacks visibility. “
> La Rochelle
On the evening of the first leg defeat, it was logical to think that the Charentais-Maritimes were playing at the top of the table. It is not so. Too inconsistent in their results, they are 8th, three places behind the TBC with one victory less. But undefeated at home since October 29 and their victory (86-85) over the leader, Angers, they intend to remain so.
