The winter break is over.
The holidays have passed with their excesses, but the good habits do not change.
Le Parisien offers a selection of issues before each weekend and details the events not to be missed in Île-de-France.
The player to watch: the return to play of Nanterrien Miralem Halilovic
He had not reappeared on a basketball court since October 18 and a French Cup match won (66-84 in Orleans).
After almost 3 months of absence, the interior of Nanterre Miralem Halilovic will make his return, this Saturday, on the occasion of the arrival of Cholet at the Maurice-Thorez sports hall.
An opponent who makes a thunderous start to the season and occupies 2nd place in the championship tied on points with the Mets of Victor Wembanyama.
Good news therefore for Pascal Donnadieu whose team remains on 6 losses in 8 days of Betclic Elite and must always deal with the absences of the leader Justin Bibbins and the interior Hans Vanwijn (injured) until March.
Before his injury, the Bosnian international was Nanterre's statistical leader with 14.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.6 assists on average per game.
“It's great to be back!
Even though I mostly did individual work, I can't wait for Saturday's game!
I'm ready !
the interior told the club's website.

The shock of the weekend: the players of the Stade Français defend their 2nd place
This is one of the nice surprises of this start to the season.
After 13 days, the players of the Stade Français Paris Saint-Cloud occupy 2nd place in the championship behind leader Nantes.
The Parisiennes even remain on a good series of 7 successes.
They have not lost since November 12 and their trip to Terville-Florange (3-1).
An opponent they welcome this Saturday (8 p.m.) for the shock at the top of the day.
Currently 4th, the Moselle club has just offered the scalp of the Nantes leader on Tuesday.
The Stadistes have been warned.
Largely rebuilt in the offseason, @lesmariannes75
, current 2⃣e, is the nice surprise of this first third of the season in LAF.
The Mariannes are simply reaping the fruit of a balanced collective and flawless work throughout the week.

The opportunity not to be missed: climbing at a low price
Do you dream of discovering an intense physical activity without effect on the wallet?
It's time to go to climbing gyms.
This weekend, some Ile-de-France venues of the Arkose group are going out of their way to satisfy you, on the occasion of the Discovery Days.
For a price of
5€ the single entry (instead of 15€), and climbing shoes loaned free of charge, you can gain height at the French leader in indoor discipline with large climbing areas where the blocks are renewed each week with a specially dedicated kids area from 3 years old.
The principle: climb without a rope on modules up to 4.5 m high, with thick mats positioned on the ground for a gentle landing.
A color code makes it possible to differentiate all the levels of difficulty, reminiscent of that of the ski slopes, in order to simplify access for beginners and experts alike.
To take advantage of a climbing session at €5, free access this Saturday (from 12 p.m. to midnight) and this Sunday (from 7 a.m. to midnight) with rental of shoes included, simply pre-fill the form on the site ( Arkose.com) depending on the climbing room (Massy, Pantin, Montreuil, Didot, Pont de Sèvres).
The place to be to think bigger: the Porte de Versailles
The high mass of diving in France is back for its 24th edition, from this Friday until Monday, at Porte de Versailles (Pavilion 4).
Founded in 1999 by Hélène de Tayrac-Senik, the International Scuba Diving Show brings together manufacturers of equipment, tour operators specialized in this discipline for an event recognized worldwide and unique in its kind.
With a theme in the spotlight: sustainable tourism.
The event will also inaugurate the Conference on Sustainable Diving, with 3 workshops that will bring together tour operators and diving centers, manufacturers and retailers, as well as emblematic divers and protectors of the seabed.
Freediving, a discipline that has taken on a certain importance in recent years, will be highlighted with the presence of the 2022 champions of the discipline.
The traditional 200m2 heated pool will allow everyone to experience any type of baptism (bottle, apnea, target shooting, rebreather, etc.) A varied program of conferences, events and exhibitions will also be planned.
On this occasion, Morgan Bourc'his, triple freediving world champion, will talk about his career, his incredible discipline, his future projects, but also about the environment.
Subjects that he masters to perfection, that are close to his heart and for which he is committed.
