ASVEL easily enters the semifinals


After suffering all the hardships in the world to get rid of Cholet Basket in the quarterfinals, ASVEL did not have a hard time dominating the JDA Dijon for the first round of the semifinals, this Wednesday night at the Astroballe . 10 minutes into the game, TJ Parker had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came TJ Parker. In the second quarter, they continued to widen the gap, reaching +32 (46-14) in the 27th minute after an award-winning shot fromElie Okobo (15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in 21 minutes). The lead was still the same at the break (54-22), with the locals making up two-thirds of their shooting attempts.

Behind them, the Rhodians did not have to force their talent to maintain the advantage. They even stopped playing a little too much, to the point of finishing just 13 points ahead (81-68). However, the staff had the opportunity to spin, relying on its 12 players (who played between 9 and 23 minutes), while the JDA, reduced by the absences of Robin Ducôté and Jacques Alingué, could only use eight players. This first chapter quickly closes, the next one, scheduled for Saturday night at 8 pm, is already being prepared.
