Rodrigue Tetainauarii (203-F-82) left New Caledonia as a pure center and he's now playing like a forward able to hit the three-point shots, and his coach seems to love this side of his game. Emmanuel Soeria is still producing some good number with Feurs while the Gely brothers seems to have a good season in the National 2 league.
Rodrigue Tetainauarii (203-F-82) 3.9pts 50.0%FG 44.4%3pts 58.3%FT 1.8rbs 9min 8gp 5-3
Boulazac is making a surprising first part of the season with a 5-3 record, not bad for a team coming from a lower division. Tetainanuarri had a season-high in a 88-63 victory against Angers with 10pts 4/5FG 5rbs in 16 minutes. He only played 3 minutes in the next game at Vichy (0pts, 80-89) but he managed to find a place in the team's rotation now. The most surprising side of his game is his long distance shooting, he hit 4/9 from the three-point range this year, a new weapon for him. After averaging 2.8ppg in the first four games, he averaged 5.0ppg in the last four.
Emmanuel Soeria Ouamba (192-G/F-82) 13.6pts 11gp 6-5
Emmanuel Soeria is producing some great numbers with Feurs. He recorded 15pts 6rbs and 6st in a 63-53 win over Valence before leading his side with 21pts (3/7 from three-point) 7rbs 5ast and 4st against Centre Federal (83-76), the french federation farm team, CF's center Alexis Ajinca (213-C-88) posted 20pts in this contest. Ajinca is projected as a first-round pick in the futures NBA Drafts. In the next game, Soeria was held to 9pts against the 1993 European Champion Limoges and his team lost 68-78.
Michael Gely (214-C-77) 10.3pts 9gp (partial stats) 3-6
Michael Gely and Stade Montois were blasted by the league leader Toulouges 74-101 despite a 14-point effort from Gely. He netted 10pts the week after in a 89-82 win over Basse Indre. Last week, Stade Montois lost in the final second against La Seguiniere 82-84 on a weird call by the referees. We were unable to get Michael's stats for this contest. Stade Montois could have won more game this year with a little more luck and a little less injuries.
Bertrand Gely (205-C-79) 6.7pts 9gp (partial stats) 4-5
Bertrand Gely and Carquefou recorded two wins in a row over Colomiers (85-97) and Cognac (66-63) but they were unable to stop the all-mighty Toulouges and lost 58-88. As usual, it's almost impossible to find Bertrand Gely's statistics.
