It's still too early stage of the Regular Season in A1, but even now we can clearly see the differece between stronger teams and outsiders.

Round 4 in A1 means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Athens where host Panionios (4-0) beat league's leader Kolossos (3-1) 89-77 on Saturday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Kolossos. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 7 points after three quarters before their 28-9 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Panionios outrebounded Kolossos 34-20 including a 19-6 advantage in offensive rebounds. The former international guard Nikos Pappas (195-90, agency: FCM) fired 31 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Naturalized Serbian forward Vladimir Jankovic (202-90, agency: FCM) chipped in 11 points and 10 rebounds. Panionios' coach Thanasis Skourtopoulos used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American center LaRon Dendy (205-88, college: Middle Tenn.St.) produced 22 points for lost side. Panionios have a solid four-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Olympiacos. Kolossos at the other side dropped to the third place with one game lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Olympiacos. Kolossos will play next round against Apollon Patras trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Panionios will try to continue on its current victory against tenth ranked Aris in Thessaloniki.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Olympiacos as it allowed them to take a leadership position after previous leader's (Kolossos) loss. Olympiacos smashed 4th ranked KAOD in Athens 103-67. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of KAOD. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international forward Georgios Printezis (206-85, agency: FCM) who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 8 rebounds. Vassilis Spanoulis contributed with 18 points and 4 assists for the winners. Center Guy-Marc Michel (213-88, college: Indiana) replied with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 13 rebounds for KAOD. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Olympiacos have a solid four-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Panionios. KAOD at the other side keeps the fourth place with two games lost. They share the position with 6 other teams. KAOD will play next round against Ikaros trying to get back on the winning streak. Olympiacos will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Peristeri GS. It will be extra interesting game as Peristeri GS is their local rival from Athens.
Apollon Patras can celebrate their first win this season after three consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Kavala (0-4) 80-79 on Saturday. Worth to mention a great performance of Keaton Grant who helped to win the game recording 14 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. At the losing side Yannis Gagaloudis responded with 25 points and 4 assists. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Apollon Patras (1-3) left bottom position moving up to eleventh place, which they share with Ilysiakos and Panelefsiniakos. It was Kavala's fourth loss in a row. They still closes the standings with four games lost. Apollon Patras will meet higher ranked Kolossos (#3) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Kavala will play against PAOK (#5) in Thessaloniki and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Thessaloniki was also worth to mention about. 6th ranked Peristeri GS (2-2) played at the court of seventh ranked PAOK (2-2). PAOK defeated Peristeri GS 83-68. The winners were led by Wiliam Hatcher who scored that evening 19 points and 5 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. PAOK moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 6 other teams including defeated Peristeri GS. PAOK's next round opponent will be bottom-ranked Kavala (#14) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Peristeri GS's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Olympiacos.

Rest of the games of round 4 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
AGOR defeated Ilysiakos in Rethymno 72-66. Ikaros beat Panathinaikos at home 72-68. Aris won against Panelefsiniakos on the opponent's court 85-76.


Ilysiakos - AGOR 66-72

Everything could happen in Athens at the game between two tied teams. Both ninth ranked AGOR and 11th ranked Ilysiakos had identical 1-2 record. But Ilysiakos was not able to use a home court advantage and was defeated by the opponent from Rethymno 72-66. Ilysiakos was ahead by 5 points at the halftime before a 42-31 second half run of AGOR. They made 22-of-26 charity shots (84.6 percent) during the game. 25 personal fouls committed by Ilysiakos helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. The winners were led by point guard Apollona Tsochlas (189-83) who scored that evening 17 points and 5 assists (made all of his eight free throws) and forward Nikos Angelopoulos (205-84) supported him with 16 points. Even 10 points and 4 assists by the former international guard Panagiotis Kafkis (197-80) did not help to save the game for Ilysiakos. American guard Maurice Hampton (188-84, college: Austin Peay St., agency: Two Points) added 15 points for lost side. Four Ilysiakos players scored in double figures. Ilysiakos' coach Dimitris Papanikolaou rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. AGOR (2-2) moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 6 other teams. Ilysiakos lost third consecutive game. They keep the eleventh position with three games lost. AGOR's next round opponent will be Panelefsiniakos (#13) in Eleusina and are hoping to win another game. Ilysiakos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Athens to the arena Panathinaikos.

Four Ikaros players scored in double figures. Even 7 points and 7 rebounds by Gabonese forward Stephane Lasme (203-82, college: Massachusetts) did not help to save the game for Panathinaikos. The former international guard Dimitris Diamantidis (196-80) added 7 points and 8 assists for lost side. Panathinaikos' coach Argiris Pedoulakis tried various players' combinations and tested in total twelve players in this game, but that didn't help. Ikaros moved-up to fourth place, which they share with 6 other teams including defeated Panathinaikos. Ikaros' next round opponent will be KAOD (#6) in Dramas.

Olympiacos smashed 4th ranked KAOD in Athens 103-67. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of KAOD. The game without a history.
