Back to back for AEK Larnakas after wins APOEL for 3rd consecutive time - May 3, 2016


AEK is the champion for a second consecutive time after sweeping APOEL with a new victory (81-74) to lead and actually end the series with 3-0. Top scorer and MVP of this third final was the American Tyreek Duren (183-PG-91, college: La Salle, agency: Aspire Sports) who ended the game with 19 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 9 fouls for, from a closed distance the Slovenian center Primoz Brezec with 18 points 7 rebounds,4 assists, 2 steals and one block shot. While the American point guard McFadden with 17 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 steal. From the side of the visitors of Coach Vovoras, top scorer was Keith Ramsey with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists and 4 block shots, followed by the Cyprus international Andreas Sizopoulos with 15 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 steals, while the American guard Brandon Heath scored 16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, but committed 5 turnovers.

The game was a derby for three periods while after the 31st minute APOEL took the lead and kept it for some minutes before Petrovic and McFadden helped their team to overcome the deficit and basically with personal points (5 points by McFadden 3 by Petrovic and 2 by Brezec) took the lead and the victory as APOEL players and especially the top performers of the team Heath and Sizopoulos committed crucial turnovers and missed important baskets at the end to simply lose another game.

AEK Larnakas fairly won the champion for another season as it was the best team with the strongest roster of all. Coach Linos Gavriel suffered only one defeat (By Keravnos) while he succeeded 23 victories, he ended with a record of 23-1!!


George Vovoras reforms Apoel and wins the Cup over Aek - Feb 13, 2016


There is no doubt that Giorgos Vovoras has reformed Apoel. With Vovoras on the bench Apoel is 12-2. Vovoras took the team in November and capitalized on the existing players making only 1 replacement so far. He led the team from 5th to 3rd place on the board, at least for the time being, with 1 game remaining in the regular season. In addition, Apoel has won the Cup after beating Aek 87-90 at the cup final.

About the game

Great game from two very good teams with Apoel winning in overtime. Biggs and Heath (6 assists) were all over the place and finished with 26 and 21 points respectively. Kounas had 12 and Ramsey had 11.

In the loosing squad Brezec had 31 and 12 rebounds, Mcfadden had 16 and Petrovic had 17 and 7 rebounds.

Statistically, both teams were close. They both had around the same FG% (50%), the same 2-point FG percentage and around the same FT %. They also had the same number of rebounds, assists and turnovers.

What differentiated the teams was the contribution of the Cypriots. Apoel's Cypriots gave the team a total of 19 points, as opposed to only 4 of Aek (Panteli had all 4 of them).
Of course it was a team effort and of course Heath, Biggs, Ramsey (5 rebounds), Duboi (7 rebounds) and Turner (7 rebounds) contributed a lot to the victory, but statistics say that Apoel's Cypriots made a difference.


Simply Apoel had more variability in terms of scoring, getting points from 8 players, as opposed to Aek who got points only from 6 players.

Apoel
Foreigners=71 points
Cypriots=19 points

Aek
Foreigners=83 points
Cypriots=4 points
