Cinq ans après, le SLUC Nancy est de retour dans l’élite !

Everything was ready for the party to be beautiful! 6,000 people in fusion carried the SLUC against Elan Chalon (76-56). Five years after a descent into Pro B, the men of Sylvain Lautié find the Betclic ELITE! The Nancy coach is making his fourth ascent as a coach. MVP Stéphane Gombauld (30 points) and Caleb Walker (18 points) showed the way to Lorraine. For his part, Chalon will play the playoffs and will be opposed to Blois in the quarter-finals.

Facing Chalon, Nancy had an appointment with history. And the history the SLUC wrote it on March 8 during a defeat at the ASA. Since then, Sylvain Lautié’s men have remained undefeated and have thus achieved a series of 13 consecutive victories in Pro B. Enough to finish first. A feat since the people of Lorraine were left behind in the race for the climb a little earlier in the season and took their destiny back in hand on May 2 on the evening of an extremely important victory against Rouen and where at the same time, Saint -Chamond lost a crucial match at Evreux.

This scenario, although Sylvain Lautie didn’t want to believe it, or even rely on it, did indeed happen: “We were a great team with great players. We must congratulate them because in a championship as homogeneous as Pro B, we do not win 13 games in a row. ” A scenario that arrived at the best of times for the people of Nancy who knew how to improve it to have their destiny in their hands and afford a climb, Sylvain Lautié’s 4th: “It’s a climb tinged with emotions compared to the Korac Cup. It’s also a wink because we were at the bottom of the hole after the Leaders Cup final against Evreux. It’s extraordinary to live this 20 years after the Korac Cup. »

Stéphane Gombauld and Anthony Labanca, Dukes of Lorraine, will discover the Betclic ELITE

Author of a totally fabulous season, the MVP of Pro B, Stephane Gombauld once again splashed the game with all his class with 30 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 interception for 35 evaluation. If SLUC Nancy has managed to sublimate itself, it is also thanks to him: “It’s a great climb. I think everyone deserves it whether it’s the fans, the staff, the players, we did a good job and now I’m going to enjoy the moment with my teammates. »

Another actor of this rise Anthony Labanca, will discover the Betclic ELITE with SLUC Nancy after a climb from National 1 to Pro B with Souffelweyersheim in 2019: “I realize my dream, I will go up in Betclic ELITE. It was an incredible evening, we were carried by a crazy audience, we couldn’t have dreamed of better. The whole team gave it their all and that gave us this great game,” said the Alsatian. “Since our last match at the ASA, we went into playoff mode, we said to ourselves that we were going to take the matches one by one. In the locker room, we said to ourselves that if we finish second or third it would have been a bad season for us because all we wanted was to go straight up. And we had a streak of 13 wins. »

After a long way of the cross, SLUC Nancy returned to the elite of French basketball five years later and became Pro B champion. If the team was mistreated by a team from Chalon without complexes, it knew how to react to offer itself a climb that brought together all the people of Nancy.
