“Le Parisien” returns every weekend to all the results and highlights of sporting events in Ile-de-France.
The feat: Nanterre wins with style in Limoges
The victory that feels good.
And what a victory!
Thwarting all predictions, Nanterre went to win in Limoges by even passing the bar of one hundred points scored (105-93).
A good breath of fresh air for the men of Pascal Donnadieu, who remained on three defeats in a row.
Led by 25 points at the break (33-58), Limoges immediately suffered the fury and skill of the Ile-de-France residents, who nevertheless deplored the absences of Justin Bibbins and Rion Brown.
One man stood out in particular: the American Keith Hornsby, 30, who beat his personal best this season with 33 points scored, including 5 of 6 three-pointers.
In the standings, Nanterre (12th) returns to Gravelines.
⭐ Record night for Keith Hornsby ⭐

The beautiful performance: successful trip from the Mets to Dijon
It's the kind of match that allows you to assess the growth of a team.
The Metropolitans are growing well, thank you for them.
Despite a more discreet Victor Wembanyama in terms of scoring (16 points), Boulogne-Levallois retained his place as runner-up to Monaco in Betclic by winning in Dijon, a solid fourth in Betclic (94-103).
Struggling in the first quarter, Vincent Collet's men made the difference in a monstrous second quarter before keeping Dijon at a distance at the end of the match.
With 25 points, Tremont Waters finished top scorer for the Mets, which have five players with 10 or more points.

The expected take-off: Paris 92 wins in the European Cup
After its defeat last week against Thüringer, Paris 92 won its first European points in the European League on Sunday against the Romanians of Valcea (24-22), accustomed to the Champions League.
In front of their audience, Yacine Messaoudi's players once again missed their start to the match (0-3) before recovering, taking advantage of a double numerical exclusion from their opponent (18-15, 41st).
A huge challenge awaits the Franciliennes on Wednesday in the league, with a trip to Brest (8:30 p.m.), in a top-of-the-table duel.
Next weekend, Paris 92 will find the European games on the ground of the Hungarians of Vac.
Great performance from the lionesses 🦁 who won a victory against Valcea in @ehfel_official (final score: 24 to 22).

The counter-performance of the weekend: the tricolor foil at the CIP
We weren't used to having a weekend with almost no results.
However, this is what happened on Saturday and Sunday for the tricolor foil fencers in Coubertin, on the occasion of the Challenge International de Paris.
Only Ysaora Thibus won the individual bronze, while the boys were left empty-handed.
The Guadeloupean, reigning world champion, honored her ranking in a very high level competition won by the Italian Alice Volpi (world No. 2) against the American Lee Kieffer (No. 1).
Ysaora Thibus had previously released her two Olympic vice-champion teammates, Anita Blaze then Pauline Ranvier.
Among the men, the two best are Enzo Lefort and Alexandre Ediri, who stopped in the quarter-finals.
The team event this Sunday should therefore sound the revolt of the French.
It has not happened.
Released by the United States in the quarter, the girls then failed (39-45) against Japan in their quest for third place.
The boys for their part remained at the dock from the first round against China (36-45).
Next step: the Turin Grand Prix, at the beginning of February.
THE NUMBER: 5
This is again the number of points that separate the volleyball players of the Stade Français Paris Saint-Cloud from the leader, Nantes.
Beaten at home the previous weekend by Terville-Florange, the Mariannes regained the taste and the colors of victory (3-0) this Saturday among the young shoots of France Avenir 2024, it is true last in the standings.
Tied with Cannet (33 points), Alessandro Orefice's daughters will challenge Saint-Raphaël (10th) on the next day, with the ambition of worrying Nantes women who currently dominate the Women's League A championship head and shoulders.
