For their part, Vincent Collet's players, second in the regular season, eliminated Cholet in the quarters and Asvel in the semis A year ago, Victor Wembanyama's teammates stopped in the quarterfinals. During the regular season, Monaco won both duels against the Ile-de-France, the first at home 87-68 and the return to Levallois 82-95.
