New threshold for D-Light

Apr 06, 2021


The basketball players of the French championship continue to play, despite the health crisis. And the SNB and Proballers continue to follow their performances.


David Lighty, the discreet leader of a team packed with talent, passed the 2,200-point mark in the NBL (2,208) after two very offensive games for his team (96 and 97 points scored). He is not the only Villeurbannais to have distinguished himself in recent days: William Howard has crossed the threshold of 1,000 points (1,005 to be exact), and Thomas Heurtel has broken his personal record of points scored in Jeep Elite with 23 units against Nanterre.


For JL Bourg, the dynamic is the opposite with 3 defeats in a row and a 5th place in the standings with 10 wins and 6 defeats. However, there are some historic milestones with Zachery Peacock (1,922 points), Maxime Courby (903 points) and Danilo Andjusic (615 points) and especially Zack Wright who reached 1,003 assists. This makes him the best active passer in Jeep Elite ahead of Antoine Diot (967).


Milestones were reached elsewhere in the league:


·      Vitalis Chikoko 1,607 points

·      Jerry Boutsiele 1,400 points and 909 rebounds

·      Abdoulaye Loum 702 rebounds

·      Moustapha Fall 601 rebounds


And records were also broken:

·      Jerry Boutsiele: 19 rebounds, a record for a Jeep Elite player this season, 

·      Michael Stockton: 14 assists, record for a Jeep Elite player this season, 

·      Remi Lesca: 12 assists, personal best,

·      Sylvain Francisco: 27 points, personal best,

·      John Flowers: 26 points, personal best,

·      Sean Armand: 24 points, personal best,

·      Steeve Ho You Fat: 20 points, personal best.




Paris Basketball has won for the fourth time in five games and is now up in the standings (9 wins and 6 losses) and could still climb a few places. Thanks to 15 points against Aix-Maurienne (90-70 victory), Gauthier Denis reaches 911 points scored in Pro B. 


Milestones of the period: 

·      David Denave: 3,413 points

·      Karim Atamna: 2,104 points

·      Benjamin Monclar: 2,018 points

·      Mohamed Kone: 1,617 points

·      Ruphin Kayembe: 503 rebounds

·      Theo Leon: 903 assists





Huge victory for Basket Landes who wins 62 - 69 on the floor of Bourges, undefeated until then! Well led by Miranda Ayim (12 points, 11 rebounds) and Lidija Turcinovic (13 points, 5 rebounds), but also by Céline Dumerc (4 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists) who reached 801 rebounds in her LFB career.


At the bottom of the standings, Saint-Amand (5V-15D) remains on a good momentum, and in particular on a good 79-87 win away from home with a superb performance from Jasmine Bailey: 10 points, 6 rebounds and 14 assists (LFB record this season!).
