The second week of the first Division (mini) league has ended and in the two games of the day we had in the first game, an easy victory for Petrolina AEK Larnakas over Pizza Express Apollon Limassol in Kition, and in the second game in an old time classic derby between Keravnos Strovolou and CytaVision Apoel Nicosia a crucial home win for Keravnos in details for the Strovolos team (68-66), in a game which was a derby from the beginning until the end and with the two teams going hand to hand in the most of the game.

Starting from the game in Kition, the home team of Coach Papadopoulos passed by the negative result of the first week's games (suffered a home loss from Keravnos) and with the Cyprus international guard Iakovos Iakovos Panteli (187-G-85) in his debut this season with AEK being the man of the match faced no problems against the disappointing team of Apollon who suffered its second loss in two weeks and even though in the papers the team of Coach Akis Konstantinou was among the strongest teams in the league it seems that something is missing and the positive results are not viable.
In the first period the visiting site of Apollon started more moody and with Pantouris in the leading position took a small lead of 5 points (8-13) 2 minutes before the end of the period, but AEK came back and with Iakovos Panteli and Dixon leading the Larnaka team end up the period with 15-13 since they succeed a 7-0 in the last 2 minutes.
The second period was a battle between Iakovos Panteli and Jason Detrick (195-SF-80, agency: Three Eye Sports, college: Oklahoma), the two players took their teams and tried for the best, the score was 33-30 with the 9th point by Jason Detrick in the last minute before the end of the half time but Dixon and Subotic gave a solid lead of 7 points and the first half ended with 39-32

The third period was the best for the home team as Iakovos Panteli found a companion from Harisson who was amazing in this period and gave a lead of as many as 15 points, 57-42, 3.41' before the end of the period with Charron Fisher (193-G/F-85, college: Niagara) scoring his last 6 points at the end and reaching the 12 in total. Apollon reacted and with Jason Detrick and MaJic Dorsey (185-PG-81, agency: Three Eye Sports, college: S.Indiana) in the leading roles cut the deficit to ten by the end of the 3rd period to 61-51.

The 4th period was a real derby as Apollon players (once more with Jason Detrick in the leading role) tried to cut the deficit early in the game so as to risk it at the end and try for the best result, so only 2 minutes after the beginning of the period, Apollon with the newcomer Krabbendam cut the deficit to 5 63-58. AEK reacted and with the American duet of Harisson and Dixon increased the deficit in the next 3 minutes to 9 (69-60). Apollon tried his best and with MaJic Dorsey and Brandon tried to do the return but AEK's players were ready for this return so with the same duet as before, Dixon and Harisson kept their team in the leading role. The final result was 78-70


The top scorers were:

AEK: Michael Harrison (206-F/C-84, agency: Interperformances) 17 points and 6 rebounds, Charron Fisher 16 points and 9 rebounds, Iakovos Panteli 16 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists, Dixon 11
Apollon: MaJic Dorsey 17, Jason Detrick 18 points and 4 rebounds.

In the other game, the derby between Keravnos vs Apoel between two teams with rosters than obviously need more games to start playing some decent basketball, the home team of Keravnos won the game in the details since the fatal player for the visiting site of Coach Konstantinidis was Isaac Wells who missed in both the three pointers in the last 10 seconds of the game and his team simply lost. The game started with Keravnos being a bit better in the court and with Tony Crocker (201-G/F-87, college: Oklahoma) in the leading role (who else?) scoring nearly half of the points for his team, Keravnos took a lead of four by the end of the period 19-15.

The second period, Apoel return back and with an early 7-2 took the lead at the beginning but couldn't keep it so Keravnos with Vaughn and Kinnard at the end kept its +4 to go to the half time with this small deficit, 38-34 in a poor game on the offensive part from both the teams, in a period full of mistakes, false balls and not good quality basketball.

The 3rd period started as the previous two, with Apoel being more active and coming back to balance the game 3 minutes before the end with 48-48 and with Keravnos scoring just 10 points in nearly 8 minutes. From that point and on and for the next 12 minutes the game was a basket to basket game since right after the first draw of 48-48, we had a new one with 53-53, to end the period with 55-53.

The fourth period had an amazing suspend, since both teams were nervous, losing balls and missing free throws, in the specific period we had more than 3 minutes with no score from any team (between 8.07' to 4.59' the score stacked to 59-57 for Keravnos) before Apoel draw the game for fifth time to 59-59. A new draw to 61-61, with 2 minutes to the end of the game, and a new one to 63-63, 1.18' before the end of the game, Tony Crocker's both missed free throws gave the chance to Apoel with its fatal player Wells to take the lead for a fist time after 23 minutes to 63-65, before a new three pointer by Tony Crocker giving the final knock to Apoel 32 seconds before the end 66-65 since it was a psychological three pointer. At the end as mentioned at the beginning Wells couldn't score so Keravnos won this derby and is the only team at this stage which has a 2-0 record.

Top scorers:

Keravnos: Julian Vaughn (205-C/F-88, college: Georgetown) 17 points and 10 rebounds with 6 turnovers, Tony Crocker 16 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists,

CytaVision Apoel: Michael Mokongo (180-PG-86) 17 points with nearly a perfect stat table, Mike Morrison (205-F-89, agency: Interperformances, college: George Mason) 13 and 6 rebounds, and Porter 12
