BASKETBALL. In front of 10,000 people, in an exceptionally competitive match at the Accor Arena, Paris Basketball had long believed they could beat ASVEL. Carried by the crowd, Will Weaver’s players tied with the French champions for three quarters, but eventually succumbed (69-86) despite Tyrone Wallace’s 21 points (in 35 minutes).

A 24-12 last-half defeat saw the Parisians end their four-game winning streak in the league. They remain in 11th place in the classification of Betclic Elite and give air to the executioners of the evening.

Relapse: Nanterre sinks against Dijon

Before collapsing completely, Ireland eased into their attacks (36-10).
