Amin Stevens (2.03m pivot) had excellent statistics with Rouen (17.92 points, 9.08 rebounds, 2.6 assists in 32.8 minutes). Rugby Christopher Smith (1.94m) helped Vichy-Clermont (12.7 pts, 3.7 rebs, 1.2 asss in 28.3 minutes), the winger of 1.93m Caleb Walker 33 games played with Evreux with 16.67 pts, 6.03 reb. and 2.64 e.).
