Aboubacar Dramé Neto of Tours showcased his skill with a game-high 22 points, outpacing Chaumont’s Victor Almeida Cardoso who scored 17 points. Despite the efforts of Niko Suihkonen and Patrick Gasman, who added 15 and 13 points respectively, Chaumont could not secure a win.

Despite Pablo Kukartsev of Tourcoing leading all scorers with 23 points, Saint-Nazaire’s combined efforts from Kyle Ensing, Jordan Ewert, and Helder Spencer, who scored 17, 14, and 13 points respectively, propelled them to victory. Saint-Nazaire aims to cement their success in their first semi-final appearance with another win in their home game on April 17.
