In a life and death match, Union Tarbes-Lourdes immediately set the scene by scoring the first five points (0-5, 1 .).Dr).

Like how many points Marcus Rilford scored. In the hot moments of the encounter, PB 86 managed to count on America (4/6 triples, 7/8 in free throws, 4 rebounds and 25 PIR in 32 minutes).

Everything remains to be done. Just sure, PB would have to raise his pointer to defend to get out of the trap set by the visitors. Relford took the match single-handedly with 12 points in five minutes (27 in the match), sparking an uproar from Luska. But the Tarbes-Lourdes stayed on top thanks to the three-point title of Nicoleic or Manuel (56-57, 25).And). In this confrontation, neither team wanted to give up (64-64, 29 .).And).

A stifling final quarter before the release

On appeal, the Chamber doubled these savings behind the line (72-66, 31). Tarbes’ response was instant with Manuel, also from a long distance (72-70, 32). It was sultry. Poitier was more aggressive in defense and found fault in attack thanks to Relphorde (75-70, 34). The gap could have been bigger after Dargenton’s interception, but the latter then missed the inevitable before Incrediol, three points, put Poitier under pressure (75-73, 35). But the centre-back kept his composure, exploiting the whistle-blowers against the visitors to take a little air (78-73, 37). It is far from enough to claim victory. Especially when Manuel’s demon earned this for his team three points after 42 seconds left (85-82). The same player still has a double chance of a draw at the last possession without finding the target this time. PB 86 and the entire Jean-Pierre Garnier room could breathe a sigh of relief.
Out of pain, Andy Thornton-Jones’ men made it to the quarter-finals. This is the main thing. Now put Caen from Friday 6 May 2022 or Saturday 7 May for the first leg in Normandy.
