A1 is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 13 rounds left. The round was rather attractive and full of interesting results. The round ended with derby games and favorites losing the games.

An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Athens. Second ranked Panathinaikos faced 4th placed PAOK. Host Panathinaikos (11-2) defeated guests from Thessaloniki (9-4) 71-61. The hosts were tied at the half but managed to speed up in last two quarters eventually winning the game. Lithuanian swingman Jonas Maciulis (199-85) fired 15 points and 6 rebounds for the winners. International swingman Michael Bramos (197-87, college: Miami, OH) chipped in 12 points and 5 assists. Panathinaikos' coach Argiris Pedoulakis used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The former international center Lazaros Papadopoulos (210-80) produced 12 points and 6 rebounds for lost side. Panathinaikos have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They maintain second place with 11-2 record having just two points less than leader Olympiacos. PAOK at the other side keeps the fourth position with four games lost. Panathinaikos are looking forward to face Aris (#6) in Thessaloniki in the next round. PAOK will play at home against the league's leader Olympiacos in Athens and is hoping to prove to their supporters that the loss was just an accident.
Undefeated leader Olympiacos delivered the thirteenth consecutive victory. This time they crushed 8th ranked Apollon Patras (5-8) 88-69. Worth to mention a great performance of the former international forward Georgios Printezis (206-85, agency: FCM) who helped to win the game recording 18 points. Kostas Papanikolaou contributed with 9 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American point guard Errick McCollum (185-88, college: Goshen, agency: Gross Zeev ISA) answered with 19 points for Apollon Patras. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. The victory was the thirteenth consecutive win for Olympiacos. Defending champion maintains first place with 13-0 record. Apollon Patras lost their fourth game in a row. Newly promoted team keeps the eighth position with eight games lost. They share it with Peristeri GS and KAOD. Olympiacos will play against PAOK (#4) in Thessaloniki in the next round. Apollon Patras will play at home against Ikaros (#7) in Kalitheas and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very close game took place in Athens between Ilysiakos and Peristeri GS. Twelfth ranked Ilysiakos (4-9) got a very close home victory over 9th ranked Peristeri GS (5-8). Ilysiakos managed to escape with a 2-point win 66-64 on Saturday evening. Terrell Stoglin stepped up and scored 32 points for the winners.

A very interesting game took place in Eleusina. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 14th ranked Panelefsiniakos (2-11) to eleventh ranked KAOD (5-8) 76-74 on Saturday evening. Kevin Palmer nailed a double-double by scoring 15 points and 14 rebounds for the winning side. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. KAOD moved-up to eighth place, which they share with Peristeri GS and Apollon Patras. Panelefsiniakos lost their seventh game in a row.

The game with biggest result difference took place in Thessaloniki. Local Aris (6-7) outscored 10th ranked Kolossos (4-9) 75-52 on Saturday night.
