According to Sports writing in Caen
Diamé injured, Pope and Awich spared, Smock did not qualify… Just with an incomplete team Caen Basket Calvados officially started the season with a friendly match at Boulogne sur MerTuesday, September 20, 2022. And despite the desire of Stéphane Eberlin’s men to get a good result, the Normans fell in the first round.
CBC passed by
Both teams tied the game (14-15, 8′) before Boulogne took the lead and held it until halftime (38-33, 20th). After returning from the locker room, Caennais quickly caught up and went ahead on a dunk by Demond Watt (40-41, 23rd), then 48-49 (27′) on a 3-pointer by Mounir Bernaoui.
But while Caennais looked better in their match, the Northerners escaped again (57-51, 30′), taking advantage of Normandy’s lack of skill at the end of the third quarter. The CBC then never returned to equality.
Two reinforcements to the first in the league
Cébécists now have a week to prepare for their first league game of the season on Tuesday, September 27. They should get the reinforcement of Ywen Smock, who will come to replace Moïse Diamé at Caen for four months, as well as Joel Awich, one of the two foreigners of the Norman Group.
