There was nothing to say on the side of Meilhan-sur-Garonne Saturday May 4, 2024. The GAB tamed its rival ESMS (95-84) and granted itself a logical first place in Nationale 2 of basketball.

And to tell the truth, there wasn’t really a match as the Lot-et-Garonnais attacked and dominated the Landais from the first to the last minute of the match. Moreover, the final score is flattering for the visitors who were led by 20 points in the last quarter.

See you in the quarter-finals

In a packed room full as an egg, the Meilhanais validated their historic season finishing in first place in their group. A first for the club.

But eyes are already on the future. And the rest looks enticing.

The residents of the Cauldron will have to travel to Levallois Saturday May 18. They will face an attacking team, which has only five defeats this season in Nationale 2. This shows the challenge that awaits Corentin Lopez and his team in the 92.

This quarter-final will be held in a two-way format. The return match will take place in Meilhan-sur-Garonne on Friday May 24 next. If the two teams are at one victory each, the beauty will still be played in Meilhan, the Sunday May 26. The team that qualifies will advance, sportingly, to Nationale 1.

Traffic jam in the calendar

The problem for Meilhan? Between the return match on May 24 and the return match on May 26, the final of the Sud-Ouest Cup will take place in Pomarez, on Saturday May 25.

Despite a request for an exemption from the Lot-et-Garonnais club, no match will be moved. We will therefore have to go out on a thunderous weekend to achieve all the objectives: qualify for the semi-finals of the French championship, and win the regional cup. Not an easy task, and above all a headache to face.
