Le Mans has qualified for the group stage of the Eurocup basketball by defeating the Turks in Karsiyaka (80-78), while Chalon-sur-Saone was stopped by the Croats of Zagreb Cedevita (84-69 ), Tuesday in the preliminary round second leg.

The Manceaux found the chickens of the second European Cup, having reached the Top 16 last year. 80-73 winners in Turkey on the way, the men of JD Jackson had difficulty in getting rid of their opponents who had initially taken the lead (36-26, 15th).

Le Mans then made a par with the Turks in the third quarter, even before passing (54-52, 24th) before getting back behind (69-61, 30th).

The French have their back late in the last quarter of just winning by a final basket of Alexander Acker, Mans best scorer with 19 points (and 6 rebounds).

The Chalon, also victorious in the first leg (78-73), in their room, had to lean against the Croats, third in the competition last year.

Conducted ten points just after the break (40-30, 21st), Greg Beugnot men responded yet to return to head (48-47, 26th), led an excellent Blake Schilb (21 pts, 5 assists). But their opponents were accelerating in the last quarter-time off handily 26-15.

Steed Tchicamboud (Chalon) and Charles Kahudi (Le Mans), silver medalists from the last Euro with France, have not weighed for their team. The leader Chalon was transparent (0 pt, 1 rb in 20 minutes), while Le Mans winger was very discreet (5 pts, 5 rbs in 37 minutes).

The draw will take place groups in Barcelona Tuesday, October 11 (13:00 French time). In addition to Le Mans, three other French clubs participate in the competition: Villeurbanne, Gravelines and Cholet.
