and a good Beast, the Mets chase Cholet and spin up the middle

In Levallois-Perret, Victor Wembanyana’s Metropolitans won a support match against Chôlet (81-69) to confirm their ticket to the Betclic Elite semi-finals, where they will meet Asvel, the former team of “Wemby.”

The Mets will be well placed in the Betclic Elite semi-finals and Victor Wembanyama will be due to reunite with Asvel. After the victory of Chôlet on Tuesday evening, on the sound strike of Dominic Artis, Vincent Collet’s men had received a blow in the back of the head. But they were able to respond at home, on Thursday evening in Levallois-Perret, winning the support match (81-69) and validating their ticket to the last four.

Victor Wembanyama and his teammates made a difference in the first half by effectively controlling Chôletaise’s attack, which was limited to the first goal. The Mets led 42-24 at halftime with 13 points and 7 shots from “Wemby” alone.

Wembanyama one rebound from a double double

Chôlet was deceived for a few minutes after returning from the locker room, with several important baskets from Dominic Artis (14 points), then thanks to Neal Sako (14 points, 14 rebounds) in the last quarter. The gap went down to 7 points but the Mets were able to put enough cushion and avoid the return of the opposition they faced in Game 2.

“Wemby” finished with 19 points and 9 rebounds, one second behind the double-doubles he had in the first two games of the series. In the semi-finals, the French crack will find Asvel, third in the regular season and where he played last season, for a place in the finals that will be historic for the Mets.
