Tarbes were back in contention in the second quarter, taking the lead at 28-29, but some accurate shooting from Spanish international Laia Palau saw Bourges take a 42-35 lead into halftime.

Bourges managed to keep their noses in front in the third quarter and led by 6 points at the start of the fourth. Tarbes battle bravely and trailed by just 2 points in the final minutes. But Bourges maintained their slender advantage and held on for the win, 69-67.

Serb & Montenegrin center Nina Bjedov displayed her best game of the season for Bourges, scoring a season high 22 points in the win. Young point guard Celine Dumerc was also at the top of her game. She scored 15 points on 6/8 shooting and dished 8 assists.
