Further to these games another road win was succeeded by Aetos who beat the team of Esperos AOPA in Patras, with 83-89 in the extra time, while on the North Group the great in all aspects win of Egaleo over the unbeaten (until yesterday) team of Aias Evosmou with +20 (106-86) and with Christodoulos Karavolas (197-F-83, agency: Court Side) scoring 30 points being the man of the 7th round. Lastly, the road win of Stratoni over Anatolia is also to be mentioned since Anatolia is considering tough nut in its home court while in the derby of the North Hellas, the team of Pierikos Arhelaos beat the team of MENT in Thessaloniki with a great comeback in the fourth period where the visiting team over scored the home team by 15-27 to finally win the game.
