An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Athens. First ranked Panathinaikos faced 4th placed PAOK. Host Panathinaikos (10-1) defeated guests from Thessaloniki (8-3) 70-64. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of PAOK. Panathinaikos forced 21 PAOK turnovers and outrebounded them 29-14 including 19 on the defensive glass. The best player for the winners was American power forward Diana Delva (188-88, college: Hartford) who scored 27 points and 5 rebounds. Guard Aristea Maglara (168-83) chipped in 11 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Forward Maria Avtzi (173) produced 15 points and 4 assists for the guests. Panathinaikos have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They maintain first place with 10-1 record, which they share with Athinaikos and AO Ellinikou. PAOK at the other side keeps the fourth position with three games lost. Panathinaikos is looking forward to face Aris (#7) in Thessaloniki in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. PAOK will play at home against GAC Eunikos in Liosa and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Bottom-ranked GAC Eunikos (0-11) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 80-65 loss to eighth ranked Ikaros Kalitheas (5-6) in Glyfada. American center Jasmine Erving (187-90, college: CS Northridge) orchestrated the victory by scoring 15 points and 9 rebounds. Evgenia Loukatou contributed with 20 points for the winners. Nikolina Ioannidou (174-94) answered with 19 points and 5 assists (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) for GAC Eunikos.

It was a great evening for Breanna Brock who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 13 points and 12 rebounds. Evangelia Kotopodi responded with 11 points and 9 rebounds. AO Ellinikou keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Panathinaikos and Athinaikos. Aris lost their third game in a row. They keep the fifth place with six games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. AO Ellinikou will meet Asteras (#6) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Aris will play against the league's leader Panathinaikos in Athens and hope to secure a win.
The game with biggest result difference took place in Athens. Local Olympiakos (3-8) was outscored by second ranked Athinaikos (10-1) 69-42. It was a quality performance for Afroditi Kosma who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 13 rebounds.
