AGOR (#5) forced the game against PAOK (#4) into an overtime, but lost by six points 85-91 on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of AGOR. Donnie McGrath orchestrated the victory by scoring 23 points and 5 assists. AGOR's coach Stergios Koufos rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. PAOK (6-2) have an impressive five-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with Panathinaikos. AGOR at the other side keeps the fifth position with three games lost. PAOK will face Ilysiakos (#13) in Athens in the next round and are hoping to win another game. AGOR will play at home against the league's leader Olympiacos (#1) in Athens.

In the last two games of round 8 Aris lost to undefeated Olympiacos on the road 65-100. Panionios won against Panelefsiniakos on its own court 81-73. Kolossos was outscored by Ikaros in Kalitheas 86-66. Peristeri GS was rolled over Panathinaikos at home 41-76. Bottom-ranked Kavala defeated KAOD on the opponent's court 73-72. Apollon Patras smashed Ilysiakos in a home game 94-72.
The most impressive performance of 8th round was 15 points and 10 rebounds by Evaggelis Margaritis of PAOK.


Olympiacos - Aris 100-65

No shocking result in a game when top-ranked Olympiacos (8-0) crushed 11th ranked Aris (2-6) in Athens 100-65 on Monday. The game without a history. Olympiacos led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Aris' 34 and made 24-of-30 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. Olympiacos looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. Aris was plagued by 26 personal fouls down the stretch. American forward Josh Powell (206-83, college: N.Carolina St.) orchestrated the victory by scoring 14 points and 6 rebounds. International forward Kostas Papanikolaou (206-90) contributed with 16 points (perfect from the field making all seven shots !!!) for the winners. Four Olympiacos players scored in double figures. The former international forward Michalis Pelekanos (198-81, agency: FCM) replied with 16 points and Bosnian guard Muhamed Pasalic (192-87) added 12 points in the effort for Aris. 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 an impressive eight-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 8-0 record. Aris lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the eleventh place with six games lost. Olympiacos will face AGOR (#5) in Rethymno in the next round. Aris will play at home against Ikaros (#6) in Kalitheas.

Panionios - Panelefsiniakos 81-73

Very expected game when 12th ranked Panelefsiniakos (2-6) lost to second ranked Panionios (7-1) in Athens 73-81 on Saturday. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 31-14. But Panelefsiniakos won second period 23-10. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. American Mark Payne (202-88, college: Cal-Davis) orchestrated the victory by scoring 12 points. Power forward Giorgos Bogris (210-89) contributed with 10 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Four Panionios players scored in double figures. Panionios' coach Giannis Sferopoulos used an eleven-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. point guard Nikos Liakopoulos (189-83, agency: FCM) replied with 19 points and 5 assists and the former international guard Nikos Papanikolopoulos (192-79) added 22 points (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) in the effort for Panelefsiniakos. Panionios maintains second position with 7-1 record behind leader Olympiacos. Newly promoted Panelefsiniakos dropped to the eleventh place with six games lost. Panionios' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Athens to the arena Panathinaikos.
Top scorers:
Panionios: M.Payne 12+4reb+1ast, M.Batis 11+1reb+1ast, L.Milbourne 11+2reb+1ast, G.Bogris 10+5reb+1ast, V.Jankovic 10+6reb, N.Pappas 9+1reb+5ast

gschID: 203591


Ikaros - Kolossos 86-66

Rather predictable result when sixth ranked Ikaros (5-3) rolled over 9th ranked Kolossos (3-5) in Kalitheas 86-66 on Sunday. The hosts trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 6-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 86-66. Croatian guard Zoran Vrkic (200-87) orchestrated the victory by scoring 15 points and 9 rebounds. Senegalese forward Mouhammad Faye (208-85, college: SMU) contributed with 13 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. Four Ikaros players scored in double figures. Ikaros' coach Dimitris Priftis used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American center LaRon Dendy (205-88, college: Middle Tenn.St., agency: David Lee services) replied with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 12 rebounds and his fellow American import point guard Marcus Hatten (186-80, college: St.John's) added 14 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for Kolossos. Ikaros have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fifth place, which they share with AGOR. Kolossos lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the eighth position with five games lost. Ikaros will face Aris (#11) in Thessaloniki in the next round where they are favorite. Kolossos will play at home against KAOD in Dramas and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Ikaros: Z.Vrkic 15+9reb+2ast, D.Gibson 15+3reb+4ast, M.Faye 13+9reb+3ast, N.Strnad 13+1ast, M.Giannakidis 8+3reb+3ast, A.Kiritsis 8+1reb+4ast

Peristeri GS - Panathinaikos 41-76

Not a big story in a game when 8th ranked Peristeri GS (3-5) was outscored by fourth ranked Panathinaikos (6-2) in Athens 76-41 on Sunday. The game without a history. Panathinaikos led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Peristeri GS to just 4 points in third quarter. Panathinaikos held Peristeri GS to an opponent 24.5 percent shooting from the field compared to 44.8 percent accuracy of the winners and made 17-of-21 free shots (81.0 percent) during the game. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Panathinaikos made 7 blocks. The former international guard Dimitris Diamantidis (196-80) orchestrated the victory by scoring 10 points and 6 assists. International swingman Michael Bramos (197-87, college: Miami, OH) contributed with 14 points for the winners. Forward Andreas Kanonidis (198-91) replied with 9 points and 8 rebounds and point guard Nontas Papantoniou (190-90) added 11 points in the effort for Peristeri GS. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Panathinaikos have a solid four-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place, which they share with PAOK. Peristeri GS at the other side keeps the eighth position with five games lost. Panathinaikos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Panionios.
