Miracle: no. Feat: yes.

The claim that semantics Latifa Rhennamtactician of the men’s national teamUSBD Alencon (Orne), illustr. : “We will try to create a feat. »

With four U20

Saturday, October 23, 2022, ua Louvrier candy barthe question, at the time of the start of the match against the undefeated leader, Bretteville-sur-Odon, was more to know how many points to lose the home team than to imagine a victory.

Deprived of “Modou Ndiaye and Guy Essaka, the two main elements” and counting four U20s in the teamthe prefectural formation kept aloof.

Alas, four tens of minutes later a wide smile lit up the face of the county tactician: “We have achieved a feat. And who immediately brought the keys to success as important as it was unexpected.

We played with heart and courage tonight. The team was very united and very fighting. Needless to say, but youth mixed with experience, there is no better marriage.

Latifa Rhennam, USBDA PNM trainer

Youth appears

The face of the meeting can only prove that he is right. Youth comes first, thanks to the award-winning video from Theo Le Royer thus Alençon regained the lead (17-16, 11′).

A basket reinforced by the throw of the same Théo Le Royer almost made a connection (41-42, 32′). The return was made possible by a good exit from the bench Batiste Perchet, another U20, who was looking for four points in a row to reduce the deficit (34-42, 28′ then 38-42, 29′), but above all to preserve hope.

Videos: currently on Act

All the more so as a few moments earlier it seemed that he had definitely evaporated (28-40, 24′).

Experience guarantee

As is often the case, in close encounters, the last things belong to those with experience. And, in the last moments of the meeting, the experience of Alencon came to the fore.

Christophe Le Royer, Dominque Mpondo and Romain Lavédrine they were responsible for scoring the last five points of Alençonnais to ensure their success (46-47, 37′ then 51-47, 40′) but they were also responsible for suffering errors to break the rhythm and take rebounds to reduce all opposing offensive intentions .

Strong defense

And they were put under the funnel by the dense and aggressive defense of their partners Gabriel Jonot.

Defense is beating us tonight. We didn’t have a lot of offensive success, but that has to do with our excess defensive energy. As soon as we increased the intensity, they were in trouble.

Latifa Rhennam.

Far from being a mild euphemism when we know that Calvados residents only registered five points in fifteen minutes (32-42, 25′ then 51-47, 40′). Reading the data sheet also allows for a better understanding of this condition.

After the compensation lost in the middle of the week at Ifs (73-72) in incredible conditions and where the arbitration was not advertised for basketball, the duke’s technician was satisfied.

I am very happy with my players. It was important to take this game. Today, when I see what the players have achieved, I tell myself that we can achieve great things if we are constant in the continuation of this first phase.

Latifa Rhennam.
