Monaco’s basketball players snatch defeat from jaws of victory

By Staff Writer - June 25, 2018

In a thrilling Game 5, Le Mans defeated Monaco away from home 74–76 in an impressive comeback and won the French League title, eurohoops.com reports.

The game was decided in the final minutes, even if Monaco had a double-digit lead early on (28-17). Le Mans managed to come back with Justin Cobbs leading the way, and in the final possessions of the fourth quarter made the important shots and free-throws.
Morin and Eito were scoring, and the entire Le Mans team was playing tough defense to win the game, and thus the championship.

For the winners, Cobbs scored 16 points, while Travis added 14. Paul Lacombe was impressive for the hosts, as he put up a game-high 21 points, eurohoops said.

This is Le Mans fifth French championship, and first since 2006. In the final series against Monaco, the visitors were underdogs, did not have home court advantage, and were playing against a tough opponent, ranked No. 1.
