Despite some trouble, Limoges broke the resistance of Antibes in the end.

By Eurohoops team/

Limoges CSP came across some trouble against Antibes Sharks but were calm and focused enough to record an 86-78 road victory on Day 33 of PRO A League.

Although the guests led most of the game and even had a ten point advantage (67-57) near the end of the third period, the Sharks managed to decrease the deficit to a two-point margin (79-77) with three and a half minutes left. But Limoges stopped their effort with seven straight points to secure the game.

Kenny Hayes led the victors with 20 points in addition to William Howard’s 17 while Samardo Samuels helped with 16 points. On the other side, Jerel Blassingame scored a game-high 24 points but it wasn’t enough to change the outcome.
