Basketball: Basket Landes vice-champion of France after his defeat at Villeneuve d’Acsq

They hit a bone. Defeated in the first leg in their lair of the Espace François Mitterand last Saturday (70-66), Julie Barennes’ players did not exist during the return final of the Women’s League. A heavy defeat of twenty-six points (114-88) at the big favorite and recent finalist of the Euroleague who spoils nothing for the beautiful Landes season after their defeat in the Coupe de France final.

Villeneuve d’Ascq asphyxiated Basket Landes from the start

There was never any suspense during this return leg. The northerners inflict a 14-0 in just three minutes of play and are already causing a first moment for the Landes coach. Behind, Villeneuve d’Ascq rained down shots to disgust a Basket Landes team never able to fill the gaps. four points behind conceded after the defeat in the first leg.

The differences of +17 at the end of the first quarter (35-18) and +23 at halftime (64-41) demonstrate the level gap. Galvanized in their room with a second title in their sights, Rachid Meziane’s players constantly kept the Landes with their heads underwater. The maximum difference even rises to +38 in the third quarter (89-51) before a slow (but logical) decompression until the end of the match to finish at +26.

A season punctuated by two finals

Faced with a Villeneuve d’Ascq winner of the regular phase with a 19-3 record, undefeated since January in the league and Euroleague finalist against Fenerbahçe a month ago, Basket Landes ends its 2023/2024 season with honors.

Thirds of the regular phase and back in the final of the Women’s League three years after their first championship title, the Landes crowned their season with a third final in a row at Bercy despite a defeat after the two French Cups won the last two seasons.
