There were just three rounds played in Regular Season of A1 and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated PAOK (2-1) in Athens on Saturday night. Visitors were rolled over by Athinaikos (3-0) 85-51. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of PAOK. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 2-0 record before this meeting. The game without a history. Athinaikos led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding PAOK to just 4 points in first quarter. It was a good game for the former international power forward Afroditi Kosma (187-83) who led her team to a victory with 19 points and 8 rebounds. The former international guard Aikaterini Spatharou (172-83, agency: Josep and Nicolas) contributed with 15 points and 4 steals for the winners. The former international guard Nafsika Stavridou (182-86) answered with 15 points and 5 rebounds for PAOK. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Athinaikos have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Panathinaikos and AO Ellinikou. PAOK at the other side keeps the fourth place with one game lost. They share the position with Kronos AD and Terpsithea. Athinaikos is looking forward to face GAC Eunikos (#10) in Liosa in the next round and are hoping to win another game. PAOK will play against Terpsithea (#5) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Athens: Panathinaikos (#3) and Asteras (#6). Panathinaikos (3-0) crushed visiting Asteras (1-2) by 17 points 64-47. It was a great evening for guard Elena Vlani (174-86) who led her team to a victory scoring 17 points. Diana Delva helped adding 10 points and 8 rebounds. The best for the losing side was center Katerina Glyniadaki (196-86, college: Cal-Riverside) with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 12 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Panathinaikos have a solid series of three victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Athinaikos and AO Ellinikou. Asteras at the other side dropped to the seventh place with two games lost. They share the position with Ikaros Kalitheas and Aris. Panathinaikos will play against Kronos AD (#6) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Asteras' supporters look forward to another derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Athens to the arena Olympiakos.
A1 top team - AO Ellinikou (3-0) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed twelfth ranked Panionios (0-3) 89-33. It was a quality performance for Breanna Brock who led the winners and scored 23 points (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line). Zafiria Giabani came up with 10 points and 4 assists for Panionios in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. AO Ellinikou have a solid series of three victories in a row. Newly promoted AO Ellinikou maintains first place with 3-0 record, which they share with Panathinaikos and Athinaikos. Loser Panionios still closes the standings with three games lost. They share the position with GAC Eunikos and Olympiakos. AO Ellinikou will meet Ikaros Kalitheas (#8) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Panionios will play against Aris (#9) in Thessaloniki and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Terpsithea (2-1) and Ikaros Kalitheas (1-2), which took place in . Higher ranked Terpsithea lost at home to tenth ranked Ikaros Kalitheas 58-62. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Terpsithea. The best player for the winners was Theoni Tzegianaki who scored 15 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. It was the only win of guest team this round and in all other games host teams recorded victories. Ikaros Kalitheas left bottom position moving up to seventh place, which they share with Asteras and Aris. Newly promoted Terpsithea dropped to the fourth position with one game lost. Ikaros Kalitheas' next round opponent will be league's leader AO Ellinikou and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Terpsithea will play against PAOK in Thessaloniki and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 3 winless Olympiakos was beaten by Aris on the road 72-61. Kronos AD destroyed GAC Eunikos on its own court 89-36.



Aris - Olympiakos 72-61

Everything could happen in Thessaloniki at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked Aris and bottom-ranked Olympiakos had identical 0-2 record. This time Aris used a home court advantage and beat the opponent from Athens 72-61. Olympiakos was ahead by 5 points at the halftime before a 41-25 second half run of Aris. They also forced 24 Olympiakos turnovers. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 24 assists comparing to just 10 passes made by Olympiakos' players. The best player for the winners was guard Niki Hatzakou (175-82) who had a double-double by scoring 18 points, 10 assists and 4 steals. Guard Roula Mouli (177-85) chipped in a double-double by scoring 12 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Four Aris players scored in double figures.

Aris (1-2) left bottom position moving up to seventh place, which they share with Asteras and Ikaros Kalitheas. It was Olympiakos' third loss in a row. Newly promoted team still closes the standings with three games lost. Aris' next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Panionios (#12) in Athens which should be theoretically an easy game. Olympiakos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Asteras.
