The three top performed teams in the last 3 weeks are no others than Keravnos Strovolou (top seated), Petrolina AEK Larnakas (2nd in the board) and Apollon Limassol (4th in the board). At the same time another surprise came from AEL since Coach Marcos Asonitis team beat for a second consecutive time the team of Coach Konstantinidis and throw him in the 4th place of the board, a position which might end up by the end of the regular season even though the management is officially announcing at least two to three player changes and new additions.
The games for the 13th week of the Mini Cyprus league were as follows:

Forex Time Apollon Limassol - Ydra Asfalistiki ENAD 103-81
Another one show by the top scorer and top performer of the league Brandon Brown (201-F-85, college: CS San Bernar.). The American forward ended the game with 30 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 block shots in just 28 minutes in the court!. Other than that, the home team enter the game with targeted offensive strategy by the Greek Head Coach, Chris Chugaz (by the way, eurobasket is giving its condoleses for the lost of her mother) and the first period ended with 29-20 in a game where the offenses had the main role and the defenses were forgotten. The same paste with the other periods too as the first half ended with 24-17 for the home team and a total of 53-37 in a game which ended earlier than thought.

The 3rd and 4th period were copy-paste since ENAD with the veteran Lewis Sims (203-F/C-73, college: New Orleans) trying his best and Mandic following had no any chance against the solid game by Warren and Jefferson who followed Brandon Brown in the scoring. The final 103-81 is obviously giving the real picture of the game and the difference between the two teams.
Top scorers:
Apollon: Brandon Brown 30, Jefferson 16, Warren 19.
ENAD: Lewis Sims 22, Mandic 16, McKiver 14 and Bolden 11 points and 10 rebounds

Petrolina AEK Larnakas - Pappa Johns Pizza Omonoia 112-79

Another game where the offenses had the main role and the defenses were forgotten by the two teams, with the home team having in an excellent night the American forward Charron Fisher (193-G/F-85, college: Niagara) who ended the game with 33 points and 8 rebounds in 25 minutes, followed by Dion Dixon (in a career high game in the Cyprus league) with 26 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds while its worth mentioning the 13 rebounds by the Veteran American Cypriot JoJo Garcia.

The game needs no real detail as the 33 points deficit says it all. The home team face trouble only in the first 13 minutes and after that waived its opponent to achieve the maximum of its points this season (and of the league, since AEK recorded the biggest productivity this season).
Top scorers:
AEK: Charron Fisher 33, Dixon 26, Subotic 18, Iakovos Panteli 18
Omonoia: Lamar 26, Jamar Diggs (187-G-88, college: Wofford) 15, Harris 11 and Baker 10

Proteas AEL Limassol - CytaVision Apoel 67-64

The four players beat the 8 players in the specific game where the well known quartet (Aleksic 13, Mihajlo Pesic (206-F/C-81) 26, Guillandeaux 14 and Palalas 7) were able not only to defend their home court against Apoel but to succeed their second victory over the Nicosia team and their 5th overall victory which is actually brings them to the 5th place of the league. It is probably a phenomenon that the team of Limassol is achieving these victories with players that remain in the court for not less than 36 minutes and still is able to win some crucial games.

The specific game started with the visiting site of Coach Konstantinidis showing its guts since with control basketball and solid defense was able to keep the home team in just 11 points after the first period (11-17) but in the second period with a recital by Mihajlo Pesic (mostly) the home team took the lead after outscoring Apoel with the amazing 23-14. Apoel receive no real assistance by players that used to be the key in previous games so Laser ended the game with just 2p. in 21 minutes in the court while his 1/12 was not exactly helpful for Apoel, on a close distance was also Troupe (a bit better though) since his 3/9 in total and his 9 points in nearly 38 minutes was also not very helpful for Apoel to end up the trio with Stiggers 2/7 and a total of 7 points in 39 minutes!! shows two vital points, the one is that the Head Coach consider both of these players unique and that there is no real replacement for these players even though Mokongo is a points guard (he played only 8 minutes), and Kremen is a small forward (he played only 12 minutes).

In any case, the third period was the more balance period of all since it ended with 17-17 but AEL had three major winning factors: The home court, 3.000 fans, and the momentum of his few players. So, at the 4th period, the home team with the heroic game by Mihajlo Pesic and Guillandeaux (he succeeded in the most crucial three pointer at the last 16 seconds to give the victory to his team) AEL kept the paste and ended the game with a victory since both Isaac Wells (203-F-85, college: Arkansas St.) and Troupe missed their three pointers in the last 15 seconds of the game.
Top scorers:
AEL: Mihajlo Pesic 26 points and 13 rebounds, Guillandeaux 14, Aleksic 13 and 7 rebounds

Apoel: Isaac Wells 17 (The American was the only player with double digits)

Keravnos Strovolou - Michelin Etha Engomis 65-54

The supposed to be derby between the two top seated teams never took place since the home team of Coach Yiannaras even though started a bit late since at the beginning the visitors mainly with Dejan Cup and Adegboye took an early lead since the home team couldn't score at all, (only 3 points in the first 8 minutes) to end up the worst period this season, with a 9-15.

The second period was much different that the first period since the home team took the game seriously and with a solid 19-9 and Crocker, Trisokkas and Aleksandar Damjanovic (206-C/F-73) dominated both edges and not only balance the game but with correct offensive strategy took over and ended the half time 28-24.

The third period though once more the roles changed and the visitors with Downey and Williams being the leading figures for Etha, the game was balanced since the newcomer Hampton was in a low productivity. Etha balanced the game and ended it with 42-42.

The 4th and last period was the best for Keravnos since the Strovolos team with the veteran Aleksandar Damjanovic in the leading role followed by Crocker outscored the Engomis players with 23-12 to finally gain the crucial victory with 65-54

Top scorers:
Keravnos: Crocker 10, Aleksandar Damjanovic 12, Owens 12, Trisokkas 10 and 8 rebounds
Etha: Ivan Maras (207-PF-86, agency: Beo Basket) and Cup 11, Adegboye and Downey 10 per head.
