“I’m very worried, I’ll find some crap to tell you, but this is really very good! Those who know her know how difficult it is to cut the whistle on Julie Barennes. And yet words almost failed the coach of Basket Landes, Saturday night in the locker room, after the stroke of glory signed by her team on the floor of Roche Vendée (54-86). Like three days earlier at home against Villeneuve-d’Ascq (81-57), the Landes collective played their game. “We did not expect to play so well, especially against La Roche, which is a very aggressive team,” said Miranda Ayim (15 pts, 6 rebounds), co-MVP of the meeting with Aby Gaye (14 pts, 7 rbds).
Despite their current form and confidence, which earned them provisionally seize first place in the standings, the players of Basket Landes will have to remain on their toes to avoid being surprised once again by Landerneau, the only team (excluding top 3), it should be remembered, to have come to win at Mitterrand last season. During the first phase, the collective built by Stéphane Leite has already hung on its hunting board two cadors (Asvel Lyon and Montpellier).
Deprived of a meeting in the middle of last week because of the case of Covid-19 near Bourges, the Bretons provided the essentials, Saturday against Nantes, and will therefore travel to the Landes without complex, to have a blow.
