Bert went to a Top Division Men 1 game in Fleurus, Belgium on Nov. 20th, 2015: CEP Fleurus vs. KBBC Oostkamp

You need two good teams to get a nice basketball game. And that is exactly what attendees at the Salle Andre Robert got on Nov. 20th, 2015 indeed... It was also a nice occasion to discover the new CEP point guard Seidou Njoya (1.88 m, born in 1989) who already showed all his talent and skills against a very well-balanced team of KBBC Oostkamp. Seidou Njoya quickly tried to boost his new team in the first quarter by hitting a three-pointer and giving some nice assists to his mates. Nevertheless, the very athletic visitors responded well especially via Cedric Berquin (1.98 m, forward, born in 1989), Arno Vandewalle (born in 1995) and young British prospect Jordan Williams (2.02 m, forward, born in 1995). Jordan Williams and his mates stayed in the race through the whole first half. CEP Fleurus of Coach Tony van den Bosch played very well in the third quarter and, mainly thanks to a superb Kevin Jonniaux (1.98m, power forward, born in 1983), looked able to dig the gap.
After 61-54, the home squad had to play tough in defense to avoid a last courageous KBBCO rush. Great plays by Seidou Njoya (although he should sometimes be more selective in taking some shots) also gave more confidence to the whole CEP squad. A spectacular defensive play (a block shot) by CEP Captain Christian Ilongo (1.94 m, forward, born in 1985) gave some fresh air to the home team in the last minutes of the game. KBBCO was unable to come back afterwards and the hard work displayed by all CEPmen eventually paid off on Friday Nov. 20th, 2015.
Score evolution: 22-22, 41-41, 61-54 and 79-73.
Best scorers:
CEPF: S. Njoya 22, K. Jonniaux 24, T. Bauwens 5, C. Ilongo 10, T. Mertens 6, M. Ouattara 8, M. Fall 4.
KBBCO: A. Vandewalle 14, S. Buysse 12, S. Veldeman 2, C. Berquin 16, J. Williams 20, W. Scheirs 9.
