Undefeated leader Olympiacos delivered the seventh consecutive win on Sunday night. This time they beat 9th ranked Kolossos (3-4) 88-72 in Rodou. The game was mostly controlled by Olympiacos. Kolossos managed to win second period 22-20. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Kolossos 41-22 including a 18-7 advantage in offensive rebounds. 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. Undefeated Olympiacos (7-0) have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with a perfect record of 7 victories in a row. Kolossos lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the seventh position with four games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Olympiacos are looking forward to face Aris (#11) in Thessaloniki in the next round and are hoping to win another game. 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. Danny Gibson contributed with 23 points for the winners. Ikaros' coach Dimitris Priftis allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game.

Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Athens: Panionios (#2) and Ilysiakos (#13). Despite it looked like an easy game for Panionios, those rules do not exist in derby games. It's more the case of honor for local supporters and such games have that special and unique approach you cannot find in other games. Host Ilysiakos challenged much higher ranked Panionios giving them a very tough game, but finally losing it by six points 75-69. Christopher Booker fired 21 points and 8 rebounds for the winners.
