The regular season of ProA has been completed, and it is now time for the playoffs, featuring the eight best teams of the country.

In the final game of the regular season, Cholet defeated Le Mans 81-80 in a thrilling last-minute victory, thanks to Evans’ free-throws in the final seconds. The game was neck and neck throughout, but the hosts hadn’t said their last word. For the winners, Rousselle scored 23 points, while for Le Mans, Justin Cobbs scored 20 points.

Monaco got past JL Bourg at home 83-77, as four players finished in double-figures. Strasbourg finished the season on the right foot, after defeating Dijon 93-77. Darion Atkins put up 21 points for the winning side.

Borris Diaw’s Levallois finished their season with a loss to Antibes at home, and he did not have a great night. The 36-year old veteran finished with just two points. Le Portel got past ASVEL at home, and so the visitors finished the season sixth in the standings.

Earlier, Boulazac got past Chalon/Saone at home, while Gravelines-Dunkerque also picked up a home victory, after easily defeating Hyeres-Toulon.
