Orion
Outerbridge

A great surprise took place in APOEL's home court as the game which ended few hours ago, found a big winner not the home team but the visitor, AEL against all odds succeeded a great road win in APOEL's house after beating the team of Coach Konstantinidis 84-85 after two over-times and a 50 minutes game.
The game was a derby from the very beginning with APOEL leading after the fist six minutes with 12-7 with Michael Mokongo's three pointer, and Wells 2 minutes after made the 16-7 before a three pointer by the MVP of the game Orion Outerbridge (205-F-88, college: Rhode Island) give an end to the first period (of 6 in total) with 17-12. APOEL was dominant in this first period while AEL was actually playing the game with 6 players only.
The second period started with APOEL and Michael Mokongo again giving a new lead to his team with 21-16 with his 8th point before Milutin Aleksic (203-F-82) and Mihajlo Pesic (206-F/C-81) the two Serbs took over to get the initiatives and the leadership and drive their team to a solid 0-7 and the lead for the first time after the first 3-4 minutes, with 21-23. APOEL reacted and with Porter and Michael Mokongo in the leading roles developed a new deficit with 30-25, 2.16' before the end of the first half after running a 9-2. AEL didn't give it up and with Mihajlo Pesic balance the score to 30-30 before a three pointer by Kremen shape up the first half with 33-30. It was obvious though that APOEL who was the top favorite for this game had major issues from the 6 players of AEL and things would have been much more difficult that thought!!

The third period found the two teams at the absolute balance 6.22' before the end of the period with 37-37 before a 0-6 takes place by the Serbian duet of AEL (Milutin Aleksic and Mihajlo Pesic) to shape up the score to 37-43, 3.20' before the end of the period. APOEL reacted to cut the deficit to the single basket 42-44 with a 3pointer by Grant, but Guillandeaux gave a new interest in the game after scoring his 10th point to make the score 42-47, 42 seconds before the end of the period, which finally ended with 45-47 for AEL.

The 4th period (which was not the most dramatic), Well's 11th point gave a new draw in the game (53-53), 6.38'' before the end of the derby, with the adrenaline goes high up for both the teams. Morrison who was silent up to the specific point scored 4 personal points to take the score to 58-53, 4.50'' before the end of it and give some solid hopes to the home team. Orion Outerbridge and Simos Antoniou (198-G-94) with 2 great shots from behind the arc gave a new lead to AEL 60-61, with 3 minutes to the end and some new interest in the game. AEL had the psychology and he momentum when Orion Outerbridge and Milutin Aleksic gave a lead of 3 points, 1.38' before the end and that was the point where they started to believe in the victory.. APOEL reacted and with Michael Mokongo cut the deficit to its minimum before a new three pointer by Guillandeaux gives a +3 to the visiting site of AEL with 47 seconds to go. Then, a big three pointer came from Porter 25 seconds before the end of the game and the biggest phase of all took place in the remaining seconds as Milutin Aleksic nearly to become the fatal player since Kremen stole the ball from the experience Serb, but Orion Outerbridge wanted the game too much to leave his compatriot, Stiggers to win the game since he gave a great block-shot to the American guard, to reach his 3rd block shot in the game and to take the game to the overtime with a final result in the regular period 67-67.

The most dramatic period was the first overtime, (and fifth in total) since the two teams were heading basket to basket and 47 second before the end Morrison's 10th point gave a lead of +2 to the home team, with the same player blocking Milutin Aleksic in the very next second and AEL's time-out 27'' before the end was quite crucial, but Milutin Aleksic missed the shot to foul Michael Mokongo with 15 seconds to go, the African guard, was the fatal player of the game since he had the chance to give the victory to his team, with the 2 free throws earned by Milutin Aleksic with the momentum and Psychology being 100% to the team of APOEL, but... he missed the first one scoring the other and to do the score 78-75, AEL with Guillandeaux select the lay-up and not the 3p. to cut the deficit to its minimum with 6 seconds to go. Milutin Aleksic fouled Porter but the American missed the 2nd free throw and the man of the match, Orion Outerbridge dashed down the rebound and gave it to Guillandeaux, but he missed the shot and in a dead time, Orion Outerbridge was there and with an amazing and heroic offensive rebound grabbed the bal and scored to balance the game and to lead it to the second overtime. (79-79)

Orion Outerbridge was on fire and he proved it since at the beginning of the 6th period! He scored the first three pointers to give anew lead to his team with 79-82. Both teams players were exhausted, but especially the players of the visiting site since the 5 players were playing for more than 43 mintes each, with Milutin Aleksic finally playing all 50 minutes!!, in any case AEL's fabulous five, had the rhythm and the unbelievable passion to increase their lead by +4 in the 2nd overtime with Milutin Aleksic 1/2 free throws, 79-83,2.32' before the end, but Stiggers and Kremen had a different opinion and with a 5-0 took the lead 1 minute before the end with 85-84, the 3p by Kremen were the last points for APOEL in the game since the lay-up by Milutin Aleksic never answered back by APOEL with Michael Mokongo and Stiggers losing their last efforts..


MVP of the game was Orion Outerbridge

Top scorers:

APOEL: Ales Chan (216-C-80, college: Seton Hill) 15 and 8 rebounds, Michael Mokongo 13, 7 rebounds and 4 assists, Porter 12, Kremen 11 and 7 rebounds, Wells 11, 9 rebounds and 4 assists, Morrison 10.

AEL: Orion Outerbridge 24, 10 rebounds, 2 steals and 3 block-stops, Mihajlo Pesic 19 and 12 rebounds, Milutin Aleksic 17, 6 assists, and 12 rebounds, Guillandeaux 16

Some interesting details aboutthe game: APOEL played with 8 players and AEL with 5, Allen and Outerbridge played for 46 minutes, Aleksic 50, Guillandeaux 45 and Pesic 44! Both teams dashed down 46 rebounds, while AEL's Aleksic had only 2/7 free throws and a total of 45% for all the team from the charity line while APOEL's Wells and Stiggers had 0/6 from the charity line and a total of 39% for the team
