After being rejected in 2018 due to a non-compliant training center and then stopped by the covid in 2020 when it was in the lead, ADA Blois won its ticket for the Betclic Elite by beating Antibes in the Pro final. B this Saturday.
It is therefore Nancy and Blois who will cross Orléans and Châlons-Reims in the elevator to the Betclic Elite! While SLUC won its ticket by finishing first in the Pro B regular season, ADA Blois moved up to Betclic Elite thanks to its victory over Antibes in the Pro B final. Fourth in the regular season, the Loir- et-Cher was opposed to the Sharks, sixth, and after winning 86-66 at home on Wednesday, Blois won 67-76 on the Côte d’Azur and will therefore discover the elite. Created in 1907 but professional since 2016, the Abeille des Aydes Blois Basket has been evolving in Pro B since 2017. The club is finally rewarded with a climb, which had come very close in 2018 and 2020. Crowned Pro B champion there At the age of four, finishing with a victory ahead of Roanne, the club was refused accession to the elite because of the lack of approval of its training center. Two years later, when Blois was at the top of the championship, with 19 wins for 4 losses on the clock, the season had been stopped by the coronavirus pandemic and had never resumed.
“It will be weird to see ASVEL or Monaco at the Jeu de Paume”
It was therefore necessary to wait two years, and while St-Chamond, who had missed the direct climb to the basket-average with Nancy, was the favorite for the climb, Blois first eliminated Chalon, relegated last year, in the quarter-finals (2-1), then Vichy-Clermont in the semi-finals (2-1), and therefore in the final Antibes, the winner of the Alliance Sport Alsace, who had eliminated St-Chamond in the quarter-finals. “We are there, this time I see no reason for the club not to go up (smile). I knew this club in National 2, it will be weird to see the Roca Team of Monaco or ASVEL and its stars come to the Jeu de Paume (the room of Blois, which has 2525 seats, editor’s note). We don’t realize yet. This team has incredible strength. She was able to take advantage of the bad patch in November (6 defeats in a row, editor’s note). Everyone found their place and we grew up “, rejoiced Alexis Tanghe, native of Blois and arrived at the club in 2019, in the columns of The New Republice. This rise is also that of coach Mickaël Hay, who had coached Chalon for seven games in Pro A in October 2013, before being dismissed and signing… in Blois.
