JoJo Garcia
The top seated Keravnos Strovolou added another victory in its resume and is still leading the competition after succeeding a dramatic win in Limassol against the last seated (together with ENAD) team of Proteas AEL Limassol in Melford Arena with 62-66.
The game became unexpectedly a derby since AEL with two additions in compare to the first four games of the competition, since Palalas came back from his injury while another addition took place as Mihajlo Pesic (206-F/C-81, agency: Three Eye Sports) is officially the second basman player for AEL (after Aleskic) changed the dynamics for the team. The game begun with Keravnos being more concetrated and more focused to its target to take an early lead of 8 by the end of the period (12-20) with Kinnard being the man of the period with his 7 points and 4 rebounds.

The second period though was much different since the experienced forward Milutin Aleksic (203-F-82) together with the newcomer Pesic dominated in both edges and with a solid comeback of 5.56' to the end of the first half the game was in total draw 21-21 after an amazing 9-1 by the home team. Four minutes later the home team took the lead with 30-27 with Outerbridge free throw missed. Keravnos with the veteran Aleksandar Damjanovic (206-C/F-73) 4 personal points, it took the lead again and by the end of the first half the game was once more a derby with 30-31.

In the third period Keravnos remembered his good characteristics and with Julian Vaughn (205-C/F-88, college: Georgetown) and Bobby Maze (191-PG-86, college: Tennessee) but also the bad temper of Palalas who actually "helped" the opponents to take the biggest lead just two minutes after the beggining of the third period since he lost the ball and was caled for an unsportsmanlike foul over Bobby Maze to change the deficit from six to twelve points (32-44). Aleksic was "fighting all alone and cut the deficit to 6 points for the 44-50 after scoring his 19th point on another lay-up.

The last and final period was quite dramatic since Pesic took the initiatives and with a domiant game in both edges (he scored 6 points and dashed down 6 rebounds in this last quarter) together with the assistance of Outerbridge who took over from the tired Aleksic, gave a new lead to their team with a +4 points 58-54 with 3.53' to the end. Keravnos showed character and in the last 1.57 and upon the thread of its first defeat, did a solid 1-8 with Julian Vaughn and Bobby Maze to finally win the game with 62-66
Top scorers:
AEL: Milutin Aleksic 21 and 9 rebounds, Jerel Allen (193-G/F-85, college: Florida St.) 12 points, 3 steals, Pesic 11 points and 8 rebounds
Keravnos: Julian Vaughn 15 and 11 rebounds, Crocker 12, Bobby Maze 14 and Kinnard 13

The game between APOEL and AEK Larnakas was a derby from the beginning until the end in a very poor game which ended with both teams scoring all and all 110 points!! (56-54 was the final score! Both teams entered the court with more care in their defense than their offence and that lead them to a number of false balls, turnovers and bad shooting percentages. The first period ended with 17-17 even though AEK needed nearly two minutes at the beginning of the game to score. APOEL had Kremen in the leading role with 6 points while on the other hand, JoJo Garcia (206-C-75, agency: Interperformances, college: UTEP) did his best game the last three years!! The American- Cypriot center was the top man of this period (and of the game) as he scored his first 9 points against his old team and was the man to keep fixing the false balls of his team-mates either with an offensive rebound or with a lot of hard work in the paint.

The second period started with Hart and
JoJo Garcia giving an early lead to their team with +7 (19-26) and after a while Fisher increased this difference with two successful free throws to 19-28. APOEL with Wells and Morrison and the bad game by AEK's players balance the game and 3.03 before the end of the first half took the lead with a solid 10-0 (29-28) to finally end this period with 31-30 for APOEL.

The third period was probably one of the worst periods ever for the two teams, by scoring 25 points (both of them) APOEL was a bit better and with Porter and Morrison took an early lead and kept it until the end of the period since AEK's player with only stand out being the 37 years o
f JoJo Garcia couldn't score not even from the charity line. The period ended with 46-40.

The final period started with both the teams not being able to score for more than 2 minutes as the first basket of the period was succeeded by
JoJo Garcia 7.31' before the end of the game to do the score 47-42 as APOEL received its first point from the charity line a bit before JoJo Garcia's lay-up by Neophytou. Two minutes after that!! the two teams were able to score again as Mokongo succeeded in his jump shot to give a breath to his team as 5.24' before the end the home team was leading the game by 7, (49-42) to add another basket by Dante Stiggers (188-PG-82, college: S.Mississippi) 1.30' afterwards to give a deficit of +9, 51-42 to APOEL with less than four minutes to go. AEK had serious scoring problems and Panteli 2 free throws followed by Hart's two free throws and 2 minutes before the end the score became 51-46. Wells lost the ball and Panteli scored his first and last three pointers to bring the game to the basket with 51-47 and 1.52' to go. APOEL took at the end the victory as Dante Stiggers was solid from the charity line.
Top scorers:
APOEL: Morrison 11 and 5 rebounds,
Dante Stiggers 10
AEK:
JoJo Garcia 17 and 7 rebounds - No other player had double digits.

It is worth mentioned the % on the free throws for AEK as the 57% and the actual 15 of 26 in compare to the 82% for

Division A Round 12: AEK lose to Keravnos - 23 hours ago
Very significant was Keravnos' (#1, 11-1) victory against second-best AEK (8-4) 91-71. The game was mostly controlled by Keravnos. AEK managed to win third quarter 26-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American-Somalian forward Mohamed Abukar (208-85, college: San Diego St., agency: Two Points) who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 6 reb...   [read more]
