Ivan Maras

Michelin Etha Engomis beat Keravnos in the finals and won another title, adding its third cup in the last four years playing in the finals.
On the other hand, Keravnos lost its successful winning series in the cup finals and for another one season (like most of the season's the last decade) in a crucial game the key players of the team were not able to play some decent game. Having a catastrophically third period where the Strovolos team scored all and all six points and with the three of four Americans being in a dramatic afternoon since the really broke the baskets as they couldn't score at all, with newcomer Stokes having 1 of 6 shots, Maze 3 of 8 and Crocker 2 of 13!!, Ivan Maras (207-PF-86) and Donte Poole (190-G-89, college: Murray St.) were much more ready to add a title in their menu!
The game was a derby from the early beginning with Etha being more aggressive and showing from the beginning that Coach Adamou's players wanted much more this title than the "supposed" to be favorite of the game team of Keravnos. So with Ogooluwa Adegboye (182-PG-87, college: St.Bonaventure) and Donte Poole in a great shooting start they took a lead of 0-5 and 3-9 and with Maras dominating in both edges the deficit went to a double digit with 8-18 with Crocker either missing his shots or falling in mistakes and false balls. Coach Yiannaras time-out was not enough to act as an awaking for Keravnos and Etha reached the double score when Cup's three pointers made the score 12-23, 2.56 to the end of the period. The end of the first period found Etha to adding its first small step towards the title since the 17-26 was giving to the Engomis players a small advantage, mainly on the psychological factor and momentum.

In the second period, Keravnos was more relaxed and with Maze (first three pointers in the game) Demertzis and Vaughn cut the deficit to 26-30 6.14' to the end of the first half. Ogooluwa Adegboye and Cup were there and with a small 4-0 gave to Etha a deficit of +8 26-34, 4.38'' before the end of the period. The next two minutes the teams were not able to score but Vaughn broke this silence for Keravnos to make the score 31-35, less than 2 minutes to go. Cup, Johnson and Williams lost three concecutive offenses for Keravnos and the Strovolos team with the veteran Aleksandar Damjanovic (206-C/F-73) cut the deficit even more to 33-35, 1.12' before the end. Etha continue the bad momentum and lost another two offenses with Downey and Donte Poole to give the chance to Demertzis first to balance the game to 35-35 and some seconds after the new missing three pointer by Cup to give the chance to Aleksandar Damjanovic to give the lead to Keravnos for the first time since the beginning of the game with 37-35, which was the score of the first half since Dejan Cup missed both his free throws at a zero time and lost the chance to balance the game once more.

The catastrophic third period for Keravnos begun all of a sudden with a basket by Aleksandar Damjanovic to reach the Strovolos team maximum deficit in the game for the first and last time to 39-35, this basket was scored just nine seconds after the beginning of the third period and from 9.51 to 1.42 which means nearly 8 minutes Etha did the amazing 0-18!! to actually winning (in psychology) the Cyprus Cup. Never the less, in these 8 minutes Keravnos missed 4 offenses with Crocker, 3 offenses with Stokes, 2 offenses with Owens, 3 offenses with Aleksandar Damjanovic (2 of them were turnovers) and one turnover by Maze and Trisokkas which means in pure numbers that Keravnos lost 14 offenses and did 4 turnovers!! It could be a world record!! Never the less, the game continued and in the remaining 1.42 ' to the end of the third period, Keravnos scored 4 points with Crocker to cut the deficit to 43-53 since Maze did another turnover at the end.


the 4th period started with Zvonko Buljan (206-F-87, college: TCU) scoring both his throws from the charity line, while Trisokkas scored his first basket with a tip in after a missed shot by Crocker. Maze and Trisokas took over for Keravnos and with personal points (6 per head) balanced the game to 55-55, 6.06' to the end.. Maras was there and when the mode was changing the experienced power forward / center scored 5 consecutive points to give a crucial +5, 57-62 with 1.42' to the end of the game, In the in between time Crocker and Maze did another pair of turnovers. The time out of Coach Yiannaras helped a bit Keravnos since Zvonko Buljan scored the three pointers to the 60-62 to make the game once more a derby. Williams and Aleksandar Damjanovic scored a pair of Baskets with less than a minute to go, and the score became 62-64. Zvonko Buljan's fifth foul was a great loss for Keravnos since the Croat was the major thread for Etha. Downney scored olt the one of two shots from the charity line but Crocker's three pointer to balance the game was once more unsuccessful and with 25 seconds to go, Keravnos delayed to do the foul so in the 17 seconds Crocker did the foul to Donte Poole, the American missed the one of the two free throws to reshape the score to 62-66, Demertzis scored both his free throws in the 13 seconds to the end to make the grant finale even more tragic for his team, since the 64-66 remain exactly the same after the two missing shots by Wyatt but Keravnos without Zvonko Buljan in its roster missed the fatal defensive foul as Donte Poole jumped higher to dash down the most important rebound for his team with 8 seconds to go, Downned who earned the foul from Owens missed the one of the two free throws, for the 64-67 but the veteran Aleksandar Damjanovic missed both the free throws at the end and in the 5 seconds to finally have a winner since Ivan Maras simply scored the one of two free throws at a dead time to give the title to his team!!

Top scorers:
Keravnos: Zvonko Buljan 13 and Aleksandar Damjanovic 12
Michelin Etha: Maras 15 points and 10 rebounds, Ogooluwa Adegboye 12 points and 8 assists, and Donte Poole 17

MVP of the game was Ivan Maras who dominated in both edges and ended the game with double-double figures.
