A1 top team - Olympiacos (16-1) managed to deliver another win on Monday. This time they beat tenth ranked KAOD (5-12) in Dramas 91-81. The game without a history. Olympiacos led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They made 23-of-30 free shots (76.7 percent) during the game. Olympiacos looked well-organized offensively handing out 21 assists. International guard Vassilis Spanoulis (193-82, agency: Beo Basket) orchestrated the victory by scoring 16 points and 5 assists. American guard Acie Law (190-85, college: Texas A&M) contributed with 10 points for the winners. American swingman Kevin Palmer (198-87, college: Texas A&M-CC) answered with a double-double by scoring 29 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists for KAOD. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Olympiacos have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 16-1 record. KAOD lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 12 games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Olympiacos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Peristeri GS.
Worth to mention about the upset in a game between Apollon Patras (8-9) and Kavala (5-12), which took place in Kavala. Higher ranked Apollon Patras lost to thirteenth ranked Kavala in a road game 67-85. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Apollon Patras. American forward William Coleman (206-88, college: Memphis) stepped up and scored 35 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds for the winners and Kieron Achara chipped in 17 points and 6 rebounds. point guard Nikos Argyropoylos (186-78) responded with 19 points. Apollon Patras' coach Nikos Vetoulas rotated eleven players seeing no chance for a win. Kavala moved-up to tenth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Newly promoted Apollon Patras keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. They share it with Aris. Kavala will play against higher ranked PAOK (#4) in Thessaloniki in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Apollon Patras will play at home against Kolossos in Rodou and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game between fifth ranked AGOR (11-6) and 10th ranked Ilysiakos (5-12) in Rethymno on Sunday ended with biggest points difference. AGOR outscored guests from Athens 95-68. Nestoras Kommatos nailed 24 points for the winning side. Dominique Morrison came up with 21 points and 6 rebounds (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) for Ilysiakos in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. AGOR maintains fifth place with 11-6 record. Ilysiakos lost third consecutive game. They keep the tenth position with 12 games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. AGOR will meet bottom-ranked Panelefsiniakos (#14) in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ilysiakos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Athens Panathinaikos.

There were no big surprises in other games of round 17: PAOK beat Peristeri GS on the road 63-55. Panathinaikos destroyed Ikaros on its own court 97-72. Panionios managed to outperform Kolossos in Athens 70-65. Aris managed to beat Panelefsiniakos at home 68-55.

The hosts trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 13-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 95-68.

Panathinaikos - Ikaros 97-72

Very expected game when 8th ranked Ikaros (6-11) was smashed by second ranked Panathinaikos (14-3) in Athens 97-72 on Sunday. The game was mostly controlled by Panathinaikos. Ikaros managed to win fourth quarter 18-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Panathinaikos shot 60.3 percent from the field. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by Ikaros' players. The former international guard Dimitris Diamantidis (196-80) nailed 14 points and 7 assists for the winning side and the former international center Sofoklis Schortsanitis (206-85) accounted for 11 points and 4 assists. Senegalese forward Mouhammad Faye (208-85, college: SMU) came up with 18 points and 8 rebounds and guard Alexis Kiritsis (198-82) added 17 points and 7 assists respectively for Ikaros in the defeat. Five Panathinaikos and four Ikaros players scored in double figures. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Panathinaikos maintains second place with 14-3 record having just two points less than leader Olympiacos, which they share with Panionios. Ikaros lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Kolossos. Panathinaikos' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Athens to the arena Ilysiakos.

Kolossos - Panionios 65-70

Very predictable result when third ranked Panionios (14-3) won against 9th ranked Kolossos (6-11) in Rodou 70-65 on Sunday. Kolossos was trailing by 5 points at halftime but managed to get 1-point lead after three quarters before a 19-13 charge of Panionios, which allowed them to win the game. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when Panionios made 8 blocks. American forward Landon Milbourne (201-87, college: Maryland, agency: Three Eye Sports) nailed 18 points for the winning side and naturalized Serbian forward Vladimir Jankovic (202-90, agency: FCM) accounted for 11 points and 7 rebounds. American point guard Marcus Hatten (186-80, college: St.John's) came up with 17 points and 5 rebounds and the other American import power forward Kevin Langford (204-85, college: TCU) added 13 points respectively for Kolossos in the defeat. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Panionios have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Panathinaikos. Kolossos at the other side dropped to the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with Ikaros. Panionios will meet at home Aris (#7) in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Kolossos will play against Apollon Patras and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Aris - Panelefsiniakos 68-55
