Uros Duvnjak
There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with extra overtimes, derby games, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

The most exciting game of round 15 in the A1 took place in Thessaloniki. This derby game ended with only two-point home defeat of 7th ranked Aris (6-9) to fifth ranked AGOR (10-5) 73-71 on Saturday evening. The guests trailed by 11 points after three quarters before their 24-11 charge, which allowed them to win the game. It was a great evening for Serbian guard Uros Duvnjak (190-86, agency: Beo Basket) who led his team to a victory scoring 36 points (!!!). American forward Brent Petway (204-85, college: Michigan) helped adding 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 blocks. AGOR's coach Stergios Koufos used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. The best for the losing side was forward Antonis Asimakopoulos (203-76) with 12 points and 6 rebounds. AGOR have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fifth place with 10-5 record. Aris at the other side keeps the seventh position with nine games lost. They share it with Ikaros. AGOR are looking forward to face league's second-placed Panathinaikos in Athens in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Aris will play on the road against Ilysiakos (#12) in Athens and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two teams from Athens: Olympiacos (#1) and Panathinaikos (#2). Olympiacos (14-1) won against visiting Panathinaikos (12-3) 72-67. It ended at the same time the ten-game winning streak of Panathinaikos. It was an exceptional evening for international guard Vassilis Spanoulis (193-82, agency: Beo Basket) who led the winners and scored 11 points and 7 assists. Georgios Printezis accounted for 11 points and 6 rebounds. The former international guard Dimitris Diamantidis (196-80) came up with 17 points and 6 assists for Panathinaikos in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Defending champion maintains first place with 14-1 record. Panathinaikos at the other side keeps the second position with three games lost. They share it with Panionios. Olympiacos will play against Ikaros (#8) in Kalitheas in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Panathinaikos will play on the road against AGOR (#5) in Rethymno and hopes to get back on the winning track.
KAOD (#11) forced the game against Apollon Patras (#6) into an overtime, but lost by thirteen points 88-101 on Saturday night. The game took place in Dramas. But the guests from Patra were better at the end. The best player for the winners was Errick McCollum who scored 31 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Preston Knowles who recorded a double-double by scoring 18 points and 11 rebounds.

The game in Kalitheas was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked PAOK (11-4) played at the court of 7th ranked Ikaros (6-9). PAOK managed to secure a 5-point victory 85-80. It was a good game for Mihalis Tsairelis who led his team to a victory with 20 points and 7 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). PAOK maintains fourth place with 11-4 record.

Ikaros will play on the road against the league's leader Olympiacos (#1) in Athens.
Important game to mention about took place in Kavala. Thirteenth ranked Kavala (4-11) saved a 2-point derby victory at home edging 14th ranked Panelefsiniakos (3-12) 68-66 in the fight for the thirteenth place. It was a great evening for William Coleman who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 14 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Kavala maintains thirteenth place with 4-11 record. Newly promoted Panelefsiniakos stay at the bottom position with 12 games lost. Kavala will face higher ranked Panionios (#3) in Athens in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Panelefsiniakos will play at home against Kolossos (#9) in Rodou.
