A Wembanyama Mets performance, Nanterre’s feat… it was your sporting weekend in Ile-de-France.

“Le Parisien” returns to all the results and highlights of the sporting events in Ile-de-France every weekend.

Feat: Nanterre wins in style at Limoges

BASKETBALL. A feel good win. And what a victory! Nanterre, who overturned all predictions, won in Limoges with 105 points (105-93). A sigh of relief for Pascal Donnadien’s men, who are on three consecutive defeats.

Leading by 25 points (33-58) at halftime, Limoges was immediately exposed to the anger and skill of the residents of Ile-de-France, who, however, regretted the absence of Justin Bibbins and Rion Brown. One man in particular stood out: 30-year-old American Keith Hornsby, who broke his personal record this season with 33 points, including 5 of 6 three-pointers. In the standings, Nanterre (12th) return to Gravelines.

A fine performance: a successful trip from Mets to Dijon

BASKETBALL. This is the type of match that allows you to appreciate the growth of the team. Metropolitans are developing well, thank you for them. Although Victor Wembanyama was more restrained in terms of scoring (16 points), Boulogne-Levallois beat fourth-placed Dijon (94-103) in Betclic and took second place to Monaco. After struggling in the first quarter, Vincent Collet’s men made the difference in a torrid second quarter before keeping Dijon at bay late in the match. Tremont Waters led the way with 25 points for the Mets, who had five players with 10 or more.

Expected flight: Paris 92 wins the European Cup

HANDBALL. After last week’s loss to Thüringer, Paris 92 picked up their first European points in the Europa League against Champions League-accustomed Romanians Valca on Sunday (24-22). In front of the crowd, Yacine Messaoudi’s players started the match again (0-3) before recovering by taking advantage of a double-digit elimination (18-15, 41st) from their opponent.

Franciliennes face a big challenge in the league on Wednesday when they travel to Brest (8:30 p.m.). Next weekend, the Paris 92 European Games will be hosted by the Hungarians of Vac.

The opposite spectacle of the weekend: the tricolor foil at CIP

Fencing. We weren’t used to having a weekend with almost no results. However, Saturday and Sunday are what happened for the tricolor foil fencers in Coubertin on the occasion of the Challenge International de Paris. Only Ysaora Tibus won an individual bronze medal, while the boys were left empty-handed.

Guadeloupe’s reigning world champion, Italy’s Alice Volpi (world no. 2), won against American Lee Kieffer (no. 1) in a very high-profile contest. Ysaora Tibus previously dropped teammate Anita Blaze, two Olympic vice-champions, and then Pauline Ranvier. Among the men, the top two are Enzo Lefort and Alexander Ediri, who are in the quarterfinals.

This Sunday’s team event should therefore herald a French revolt. This did not happen. Dropped by the USA in the quarter, the girls fell short against Japan (39-45) in the third-place match. The boys remained in the dock from the first round against China (36-45). Next step: the Turin Grand Prix, in early February.

NUMBER: 5

This is again the number of points separating the Stade Français Paris Saint-Cloud volleyball players from the leader Nantes. Beaten at home by Terville-Florange the previous weekend, Mariannes recovered the taste and colors of victory (3-0) this Saturday among the young shoots of France Avenir 2024, which was the last of the tournament table.

Level with Cannet (33 points), Alessandro Orefice’s girls will challenge Saint-Raphaël (10th) the next day with the ambition to upset the women of Nantes, who are currently head and shoulders above the Women’s League A championship.
