Through Aline Chatel
The top 5 is almost in the pocket! the Caen Basket Calvados won a victory as difficult as it is precious this Friday, January 20, 2023 in a still crowded Palais des Sports. Manhandled by Cheruy Bridge, especially in the second quarter (won 13-23 by the visitors), Caen was ten points behind in the second half (44-54, 26′). But his good defense and his exterior address, illustrated by Florian Thibedore at the end of the third quarter and Lucas Veraghe at the start of the fourth quarter, got the better of Pontoise’s inclinations.
Thibedore reignites the fuse
Caen was able to rely on a supplied and efficient bench, unlike Pont de Chéruy who came with only three substitutes. However, it was a holder, Florian Thibedore, who lit the fuse in the second half. Joel Awich also took responsibility on both sides of the pitch. For his first match with Caen, Rida Em Amrani demonstrated his qualities as an organizer. He finished with five assists. Tyere Marshall (5 points, 4 rebounds, 2 blocks) also contributed to the success of his new formation.
Caen makes the hole
This 14th victory of the season allows Caen to take a three-point lead over Pont de Cheruy, sixth, with the point average. We will never see the partners of the indestructible Ludovic Chelle (15 points) again. The Caennais will try to fuel their good momentum a little more on Tuesday January 24, 2023 at a poorly ranked Cergy-Pontoise.
