Apollon - AEL 75-74

Pizza Express Apollon succeeded its very first win after three negative results after beating its "homie" team of Proteas Ael Limassol at the end with 75-74 in a dramatic game. Jefferson was the hero of the game and the man of the match since with his own offensive rebound after the missed shot from his team-mate Dorsey 1 second before the end of the game, took the foul made by
Orion Outerbridge (205-F-88, college: Rhode Island) and scored the one for the two free throws to end the game once and for all. Jefferson scored 16 points in total and dashed down 8 rebounds but he only had 50% from the charity line with 8/16 free throws the last of which was the most crucial one for his team.

AEL started the game in more offensive mood and the first period end up with 19-23 with AEL finding solutions mainly from his three musketeers (
Orion Outerbridge, Aleksic and Allen). Apollon reacted and in the second period succeeded an amazing 24-7 to lead the half way to 43-30. Upon everybody thought that Pizza Express Apollon would be gaining an easy victory as AEL was actually playing with four players scoring since all the other talented youngsters couldn't follow the mode, AEL reacted and at the end of the third period after over scoring their opponents with 14-22, cut the deficit to just five points 57-52. The visiting site of AEL continued its offensive crescent mainly with Aleksic and Orion Outerbridge, and at two minutes before the end the two teams were balanced to 69-69 and a minute after with another three pointer AEL took the lead with 3 (69-72) the last seconds were dramatic and Apollon finally won the game and his first victory is now a fact.
Top scorers:
Apollon: Jefferson 16, Brandon 15, Kapelan 13 and Dorsey 10
Orion Outerbridge and Milutin Aleksic (203-F-82) 22 per head, Allen 17 and Guillandeaux 11 (the only other basket for AEL was scored by Loizidis)

Omonoia - Apoel 74-102

Omonoia lost its very first game this season and as of the 18th of November, 2012 Keravnos Strovolou is the only unbeaten team in the league. CytaVision Apoel thrashed the unbeaten team of Papa John's Pizza Omonoia 74-102 and sent her to the third place.

The team of Coach Konstantinidis with solid and simple game against the four American players of Omonoia lead the way from the first minute and by the end of the first period the difference was already to the +17 points as Omonoia scored just 12 points while Apoel with Porter and Grant mainly scored 29 points to gain a psychological advantage. Omonoia reacted and with Lee and Lamar mainly cut the deficit to 13 with the score ending at the end of the first half to 39-51. Apoel was not letting the chance to go so upon Omonoia's players set game with many missing shots from behind the arc was continuing,
Michal Kremen (200-G/F-81) and Stiggers helped their team and together with Chan gave a new lead to their team by the end of teh third period to 52-71. It is worth mentioned the only 57% on ther free throws for Omonoia's players while the 23% from behind the arc was also a crucial point for the until yesterday unbeaten team of Coach Tsaggaridis. The fourth and final period was a typical case since Omonoia's players couldn't follow the crescent of Apoel's players and even though they had their fans push (more than 2.000 Omonoia Fans visited the court) Apoel with much more solutions in both edges succeeded a crucial road win and is currently at the second spot of the league behind the top seated team of Keravnos Strovolou.
Top scorers:
Omonoia: Lee 20, Lamar 16 and
Jamar Diggs (187-G-88, college: Wofford) 13
Apoel: Porter 18, Grant 19,
Michal Kremen 15 and 9 rebounds, Stiggers 13 and 5 assists, Chan 11, Morrisson 10 and 6 rebounds

Petrolina AEL Larnakas - Michelin Etha Engomis 73-75

A great derby took place in Larnaca where the home team lost another game in details and the AEK's fans are now very disappointed as their team started the season with more solid dreams than ever, correct programming, great roster and lots of experience but they are still at the lower parts of the table with many games lost in details. The game was a derby between more or less two balanced teams and the first period ended with 18-18 with the home team coming back from a -5 (13-18) in the last 2 minutes to the draw, with Dixon and Fisher leading their team while on behalf of the visitors
Dejan Cup (202-PF-83) was the leading figure with his 9 points.

The second period continued in the same mode as the first with Subotic and
Iakovos Panteli (187-G-85) assisting a lot their team in the offensive part as they were answering back all the points coming mainly from Johnson and Donte Poole (190-G-89, college: Murray St.). AEK took a lead of five points 50 seconds before the end (37-32) but couldn't keep it as Etha with Donte Poole's three pointer at the end cut the deficit to just one basket 37-35

The third period was the best for the home team since with
Iakovos Panteli, Subotic and Cvetinovic took a double digit lead (51-41), 4.22' before the end of the period. While with Dixon's three pointer increase the deficit to +11 2 minutes before the end of the 3rd period 55-44. Adegboye's three pointers simply cut the deficit at the end of the period to the 7 points (57-50). Everybody thought that Etha couldn't have the necessary psychology to do the comeback, but they were wrong! With Donte Poole at the leading role at the beginning of the last period, the visitors balanced the game with a fast 7-0 to 61-61 right after the first two minutes passed in the period. From then and on the game was dramatic, Donte Poole and Williams (who woke up at that stage) gave a +4 to Etha 65-69 while AEK with Fisher, Dixon and Subotic brought their team closer to the victory since the score 33 seconds before the end became 73-71 with the momentum belonging to the homers... In the most crucial point of the game Adegboye was able to dashed down an amazing offensive rebound to the missed shot by Dejan Cup and that was the turning point of the game since Williams earn the foul from Papadopoulos and with two free throws balanced the game 13 seconds before the end of it to 73-73. Subotic was the fatal player for his team as in the most crucial moment for his team was called for travelling 9 seconds to go and in exactly the next phase of the game, Downey with 2 seconds to the end scored ona fast break the winning basket for Etha.
Top scorers:
Iakovos Panteli 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 turnovers, Dixon 15, Subotic 13, Fisher 11
Donte Poole 16, Downey 13, Cup 11, Williams 10

Keravnos Strovolou - Ydra Asfalistiki ENAD 83-58

Not many words needed for a 30 points game since the top seated team of Coach Yiannaras face no problem against the last seated team of Coach Stylianidis. By the beginning of the second period the difference was already to the +24 points fro the Strovolos team (34-10) while the difference never went down to 15 points from the beginning to the end. There is no relation between the two team's strength and the victory came normally to the unbeaten team of Keravnos Strovolou which is currently at the 4-0 series. It is worth mentioned that with ENAD the American center Maurice Bolden did his debut.

Top scorers:
Tony Crocker (201-G/F-87, college: Oklahoma) 24 points and 6 rebounds, Bobby Maze (191-PG-86, college: Tennessee) 12 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists, Damjanovic and Vaughn 10 per head

Maurice Bolden (208-G/F-89, college: S.Mississippi) 11 (no other player had double digits)
