Olympiacos looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. American forward Kyle Hines (198-86) fired a double-double by scoring 14 points and 11 rebounds for the winners. The former international forward Georgios Printezis (206-85, agency: FCM) chipped in 14 points (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). The former international guard Giannis Kalambokis (195-78, agency: FCM) produced 17 points for lost side. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.

Kolossos will play on the road against Ikaros (#6) in Kalitheas and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Kavala (0-7) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 83-82 loss to eighth ranked Ikaros (4-3) in Kavala. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Alexis Kiritsis (198-82) who helped to win the game recording 23 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
