FRA - Orleans close in on cup dream

ORLEANS (French Cup) - Pro B outfit Orleans (lega 2 francese) are one win away from a fairytale French Cup final appearance after dumping top-flight Cholet out of the competition on Tuesday.

Philippe Herve's men booked their spot in Wednesday night's semi-finals after holding on for a 79-68 victory in front of their own fans.

"This is a huge achievement for us," said a delighted Herve.

"I told my players anything was possible in front of our crowd.

"We managed to unsettle centre Claude Marquis, while succeeding in attack."

Orleans will face Hyeres-Toulon, who eliminated the other Pro B side left in the competition, Chalons-en-Champagne, 80-57 on Tuesday night.

"We must be able to start the clash in the same conditions as (the quarter-finals)," added Herve

"Even if I know that physically we are capable to play two days in a row, I am a little bit scared we might not hold on mentally."

The other semi-final will see Pro A leaders Pau-Orthez face Dijon, who thrashed holders Gravelines-Dunkerque 91-76.

Pau came from 17 points down to beat Le Mans 60-57 in dramatic finish.

Le Mans were leading by one point (57-56) with 73 seconds left when Laurent Foirest pounced on a mistake to score.

"We were united and we won thanks to rebounds and a good defence," Foirest told L'Equipe.

"Despite trailing by 17 points and having made a lot of offensive mistakes, we did not rush and took our chances well."

Pau have reached the final five times in the last six seasons.
