Here is the last round review presented by Job Market.

The most exciting game of round 19 in the NM1 took place in Challans. This derby game ended with only one-point defeat on the road of 5th ranked Rueil (7-5) to seventh ranked Vendee Challans (8-6) 85-84 in the game for the sixth place. Vendee Challans looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. It was a great evening for Serbian-Montenegrin center Nemanja Kovanusic (204-93) who led his team to a victory scoring 21 points and 6 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field). Romain Dardaine (201-88) helped adding 14 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Vendee Challans’ coach Antoine Michon used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side point guard Warren Racine (189-95) responded with 16 points. Vendee Challans have a solid series of four victories in a row. They moved-up to sixth place in Group A.
